8th graders/Confirmation Class

This year, the Confirmation Class is using the Theocademy Confirmation Series in addition to learning about all the great reasons to belong to Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church. This program helps them to learn about the major themes of the reformed tradition and find ways to incorporate those themes, such as Grace and Gratitude, Election of the People to Service, and Being Called to Work for Transformation, into their own faith life. Be watching for our Confirmands to help lead worship and to be involved in mission projects. They might even ask you why you think it’s important to belong to Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church!


From the Children’s Time in Worship (10:30 –  11:30am)

Children are welcome in worship. All children are encouraged to be in worship with their families so they may share in hymns, scripture, prayers, and other parts of worship. There is a booklet available in the narthex, in classrooms, and the lobby with details about our Children’s classes and upcoming events. Below is a list of classes for children.
