NQLBC (Not Quite a Lock-in But Close)
This is our annual fun-fest for Middle School students. All who attended Camp MSP and any others in this age group (entering 5th-8th Grade) are invited to join us. Cost is $25 per person and registration forms are available here.
So everyone feels welcome and so we know who you are, please register every child in your household ages 0-12th grade here.
Mid-Hi Connections is youth ministry for students in grades 6 and 7. On Sunday mornings, they meet during the school year and experience the same Bible stories as the younger children, but at a more advanced level, allowing them to dig deeper. On Sunday evenings, they use the Connect curriculum to do a Bible overview.
Journey to Confirmation
At Advent, Confirmation is for students in grades 8 and 9.
Confirmaton at Advent is a two-year program starting
with 8th grade and finishing at the end of 9th grade
with a spring Confirmation ceremony.
Senior High – Journey on…
Forming our faith is an ongoing, always moving journey. Senior High students grades 10-12 meet on Sunday
evenings to explore faith practices and explore social action/social justice issues. Occasionally this will include going
off-site to participate and observe at another level of engagement.
In 2016, the youth of Advent UMC participated in mission projects beyond the walls of Advent.
In the Twin Cities metro our Mid-Hi youth served at Camp MSP.
In Birmingham, our youth partnered with Urban Ministry on service projects including house painting and gardening.
Our youth also help with Vacation Bible School. They are challenging us all to be involved, to share what we have with others.
