"To join together in an accepting community learning to live a Christ-centered life"
While on our Chicago mission trip last summer our students developed a passion for serving the poor in their local community. When we came back we became connected with the University United Methodist Church downtown and their Saturday meals and free store. Every third Saturday of the month from 9 am to 12 pm we help out at Fig Leaf (the free store) and serve the homeless population of Austin. It's a really amazing experience, and we are grateful to be a part of it.
Confirmation is an opportunity for middle school youth to continue their Christian formation as they learn about the chief parts of the Christian faith, build relationships with youth and caring adult mentors, enjoy fellowship with each other, worship regularly, and serve others.
