“So let’s do it—full of belief... Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on.” –Hebrews 10:24-25
We believe we are called to be Confident in our faith, Compassionate to others, and Committed to Christ. 

Junior High Youth / Confirmation

Leader: Calvin Konop, Jr High Youth Director

Our middle school program is for 7th, 8th, and 9th graders. Confirmation is a time for students to explore scripture, God, and their own spiritual life. The ultimate goal of our confirmation program is to guide students through their faith to become Confident, Compassionate and Committed followers of Christ. Not only do we learn a lot, but we have a lot of fun doing it with crazy games, fun events, and lots of hanging out!

Upcoming Events








Friday, September 28 • 6:30-8:30 pm


What is a TAKEOVER night? It’s for all 7th-9th graders to come to SOC and takeover the church. We hang out and do, well, whatever we feel like doing. We’ve done church-wide Hide and Seek/Sardines, watched scary movies, played Vinball (a game that I created that is likely the best, most fun game in the universe), and played other games that people know and love. This is a great time to invite non-church friends to come and check out SOC.

Fall Retreat for Confirmation!

November 16th-18th


The fall retreat to Camp WAPO is for all 7th and 8th graders, and optional for 9th graders. There will be a one-time “opt in” option for 9th graders at the Open House/Orientation night, so make sure you attend.


We’ll do a fall retreat every year with the intent of students getting to know each other better, giving leaders the opportunity to get to know their students on a deeper level, and to give us all an opportunity to worship God, dig into the Bible, and encounter God in new and fresh ways. This retreat will be an experience that you’ll remember for years to come!
