Youth Ministry: Grades 6-12
2019-2020 Enrollment/Consent Form
Once each year, we need parents to complete a fresh Enrollment/Consent form for each of their participating children/youth. Kids’ safety is of paramount importance, and updated information regarding medications, allergies, insurance, and emergency contacts is crucial. Thank you, parents, for your cooperation with this!
During the school year, “MP3” meets most Sundays in the Youth Room (lower level of the Fellowship Hall building) at 9am, where 6th-12th graders experience "Ministry: Praise, Prayer, & Proclamation" (MP3). Rev. Rob Fredrickson and a team of terrific adult volunteers facilitate a high-energy, fun hour engaging both young hearts and young minds.
Monthly “Tri-Youth” Events
The 2019-2020 school year will be the debut year for “Tri-Youth”—uniting 6th-12th graders from OCC, North Shore Congregational in Fox Point, and First Congregational in Wauwatosa. Some months, the event might be a service project; other months, it might be a fellowship event or retreat. Locations, days, and times will vary...so stay tuned!
Eight 90-minute class sessions + a few community service projects + a few church involvement activities = confirmation at OCC! We learn a lot, but there's plenty of fun, too! It all culminates with each student writing a unique, seven-sentence personal credo statement, and having the opportunity to "own the covenant" and join OCC as a full-fledged member. During the 2019-2020 school year, Confirmation Class will meet on the third Sunday of the month, 4:30-6:00 p.m.
Community Service & Missions
Middle and high school students are truly leaders within OCC’s overall approach to service and outreach. They spearhead our sponsorship of a child through Compassion International, clean and sort donated books at the Next Door in Milwaukee, lend a hand at the Hope House food pantry, volunteer at Family Sharing in Grafton, go on mission trips to Pennsylvania and Mexico, and much more.
