Parents, you are always welcome at any youth event! We always need you to hang out with us, help chaperone, take pictures, and be present in your youth’s faith life! If you are available to regularly help chaperone, or help lead a class or small group, please let Savanah know!

Confirmation is a year-long discipleship program for any youth who wants to learn more about God, their faith, and dig deeper into it all. If you would like to know more about this opportunity, or need a Confirmation calendar for this year, contact Pastor John Woods at jwoods@tabernacle-umc.org.
