DIVE: Confirmation Class

Wednesdays:  September through May

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Location:  Lower Level Youth Community Room

DIVE: Discover. Inquire. Validate. Encounter…God
If you’ve been wanting to find a place where you can ask questions about God, the Bible, or any of the stuff you hear and see in church, then DIVE is for you. DIVE is Christ Church’s confirmation class and is all about creating a totally judgment free space where it’s possible to ask hard questions, connect with great people, have fun and meet God. DIVE wants to take you on a journey that goes below the surface to discover what’s really there. If you are in high school and haven’t been confirmed, then DIVE is for you!
