C4 Middle School Ministry – C4 Middle School Youth Group currently meets on Sunday mornings at 10:00 in the Youth Room during the school year. Each meeting includes games, activities, large group instruction, and small group life application time. Each year the curriculum rotates between Old Testament, New Testament, and Life Application. Luther’s Small Catechism is weaved into the topic of the day. Additional events like First Communion instruction, retreats, late nights, Youth Gatherings, group outings, and service projects also happen throughout the year. Check out the C4 Schedule here. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @C4_StPeter.
Family 15 – Family 15 is a time (approximately 15 minutes) for parents and students to chat about their life experiences over dinner, in the car, or anytime throughout the week. Prompts are provided corresponding to the C4 themes a couple of times per month. Family 15’s can be found here.
Memory Work – Memory work can be completed at any pace during your Middle School years. A list of required memory work is available here. When you memorize a portion, simply recite it to DCE Kristin. Set up a time to meet with her or catch her before/after C4 so she can track your progress. St. Peter Day School students will not need to complete memory work outside of what is already assigned in the school.
Service Hours – Students may serve in any way that fits their unique abilities including, but not limited to, Acolyte, Community Threads, Feed My Starving Children, PADs, Encounter, assisting teachers, serving your neighbors, tutoring, participating at Big Days of Serving, and assisting our facilities team. Submit this form online as hours are completed.
Worship – Students are encouraged to worship at St. Peter every week. Use the Connect Card in your bulletin (or by the door in the Life Center) to reflect on the worship experience using the "Confirmation Connection" portion on the back. If you have a sibling in Confirmation, you should each grab your own Connect Card. Return the cards to the ushers so we will know you were at worship. If you forget to complete your Connect Card while at worship, please complete this online form within 24 hours of attending worship. If you worship somewhere else, give that bulletin and reflection to DCE Kristin.
