About the Quest Program
QUEST is an opportunity for Youth to discover, deepen, develop and affirm their faith in Christ. It is a relationally-based two-year program at Hope Church moving Young People toward Confirmation of their faith. It typically begins in 6th Grade and is completed during the 7th Grade year, with Confirmation taking place in the Spring. Life Groups form the core of this ministry, allowing for prayer, safety to ask questions, support for challenging times and study of God’s Word. Larger Group Teaching Times provide more specific instruction on God’s plan of Salvation, understanding of God’s Word and God’s Church. Instruction for Holy Communion is built into QUEST.
Twice each moth, our QUEST students gather in Life Group, groups of 8 or less, where deeper discussions of relationship and personal faith are nurtured.
Larger-group teaching sessions is the primary place where students grow in knowledge and understanding of God's Word; a significant dynamic in encouraging an active, vital faith.
Quest students are encouraged and guided to give of themselves through a set of service hours. Through participation in both serving ministries at Hope and in our community they meet new people, discover their gifts and begin to find their place in the Church.
The stories they share are also an important part of learning what it means to GO and tell of God’s Good News. Sharing the story of God’s love, whether locally or around the world, includes telling about what He has done in and through us.
INFO FOR QUEST STUDENTS
Opportunities for relationship, service and even celebration make this a great way for middle-school-aged Youth to take this significant step in their faith.
Meetings and Gatherings that occur while QUEST is in session include Parent Meetings, Teaching Sessions, Life Groups, Confirmation Rehearsal, Celebration Dinner, Faith Fair, Questioning Time and of course, Confirmation.
Future dates will be posted as we approach the 2017-2018 QUEST year.
