 OTE Summer Camp Info

Ongoing Ministry Opportunities: 

Please note that all Sunday School classes are currently on a break and will resume on Sunday January 30th.

Sunday School: Meets each Sunday morning from 10:15am-11:15am in the Youth Wing for a time of fellowship, worship, and the study of God's Word. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word of God, so the Scriptures are at the forefront of all our teaching. Students are placed into either a middle school or a high school class. 

  • Confirmation Class: Confirmation Class is a fantastic opportunity for our youth to dive deeper into exploring why we believe what we believe with the option of becoming a member of Hope this spring. Class will begin on Sunday January 30th and meet during our Sunday School hour (10:15-11:15am). The class itself is 4 months long, and while weekly attendance isn't mandatory, students should make it a priority. After all, how can you potentially join a church if you don't know what it believes? Taught by our Youth Director Bryan Lees, course content will include discussions on God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, The Trinity, the content in the Apostles Creed, The Protestant Reformation, reformed theology, the church sacraments of baptism and communion, different models of church governance, Presbyterianism, our denomination (the EPC) and structure of Hope! Class is open for all Hope youth, both middle and high school. Please email Bryan if you plan to attend. Classroom TBD.
  • Middle School Class: Scott and Lisa Boyer will be teaching our middle schoolers as they go through a study called "Church 101." This study will help students to understand what the church is, how it works, and why they need it in their lives. How great is it that God came up with the idea of the church, so we could grow into Christ together, have others look out for our spiritual health, hear the Gospel consistently and faithfully proclaimed, enjoy diversity that is a taste of heaven, and walk through life and hardship together (just to name a few benefits of the church)! The church is God’s gracious and loving provision for his people, and we long for students to be equipped in the knowledge that will lead them to understand and appreciate that.

Sunday Night Youth Group: Meets on Sunday Nights from 6-8pm in the Youth Wing. Youth Group takes place during the school year and is a relational time of fun, games, snacks, large group study time and small group ministry. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word and relationships, so please come and enjoy spending time with each other. Join us this fall as we come back "Together Again."
