Our 6th to 8th graders are active leaders in Refuel. It meets on Wednesday nights during the school year from 5:30 to 7:30 at FPC Marion.
During the school year, we have Sunday School for our Middle Schoolers at 10:15 am in the basement of the Mission House.
They participate in some of the mission trip fundraising events, Youth Sundays, and various service opportunities. We do fun activities throughout the year, such as bowling, mini golf, and lock-ins.
Each summer, the middle school youth participate in a partial-week mission trip. In the past few years, we have gone to Minneapolis, Chicago, Waterloo, Omaha, and in Marion/Cedar Rapids.
Confirmation is for the 8th graders, and typically also meets on Wednesday nights during Refuel. The 8th graders will still participate in Refuel starting at 5:30, but when scheduled, they will go to confirmation from 7:00 to 7:45 pm.
In confirmation, the youth focus on the different aspects of the Presbyterian church, FPC Marion, and explore their own beliefs. At the end of the school year, each youth decides whether or not they are called to join the church. For more information, please contact Marta Pumroy.
