Confirmation Class: Youth in 8th grade, along with older youth who have not yet been confirmed, learn all about being a Christian and a United Methodist and experience different ways to serve, grow, and worship in Christian community.
This fall we're kicking off another year of Confirmation Class. We may be online, but we'll still be digging deeply into what it means to be a follower of Jesus. It's a bit of a commitment, but that's one of the things that makes it great, being part of a community of committed believers. If you're in 8th grade, we hope to see you there!
Youth events for fellowship, service, and spiritual growth occur throughout the year. Events this fall will include outdoor games, activities, and movie nights along with some service opportunities.
Middle school youth can join periodic short-term small groups during the year to dig deeper into their faith or connect in new ways.
High school youth meet in small groups throughout the year to hang out and discuss the Bible, life, and following Jesus.
Music opportunities for youth include the Voices of Praise youth choir and the Youth Orchestra. Youth are also a welcome part of weekly worship music. Visit the Music Ministries page for details.

Serve in Youth Ministry

There are numerous roles for adults in Glen Mar's youth ministry, including teachers, small group leaders, mission trip crew leaders, Confirmation mentors (Friends in Faith), drivers, retreat chaperones and hosts for summer activities.
All adults assisting with Glen Mar's youth ministry are required to complete Safe Sanctuaries training. You can find out more about Safe Sanctuaries here.
