Is your 7th or 8th grader ready to dig deeper into our faith? Ignite is here to offer them opportunities to build a community of brotherhood and sisterhood in Christ, find answers to life’s tough questions, and develop a friendship with Jesus that will help guide them through their teenage years in today’s world. Our bi-weekly in person meetings open to 7th and 8th graders will include team building activities, games, time for group prayer, and small-group discussions following lessons on important topics related to faith, prayer, and living in our world as Catholics. There will be other events scattered throughout the year which will include adoration, service projects, and social nights!
Ignite meets bi-weekly on Sundays from 4:30-6:00 PM. Contact Rebecca Feldkamp for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
