GIFT (GROWING IN FAITH TOGETHER)
Students in 7–10th grade attend our GIFT program with a parent. This program meets about once a month (11 times total) on either Sunday or Wednesday night from 7–8:45pm from September–May. This program is a four-year cycle, with studying the Bible as the foundation of our lessons.
The program is:
Year 1: The Teen Timeline
(an overview of the whole bible and studying our faith story of our Salvation History)
Year 2: Matthew: Thy Kingdom Come
Year 3: Chosen series, which includes a variety Catholic themes for each class
Year 4: The Mass, plus other topics such as adoration and confession.
For the 2016-17 school year we are in Year 1 of our cycle. Most classes begin with a large group presentation, followed by a snack break and then change to we go into small groups, with 5–7 families in a small group.

GIFT SMALL GROUP FACILITATORS
Our GIFT program relies on trained facilitators who guide small groups through activities and discussions. Facilitators attend five trainings on Monday or Wednesday nights from 7:00–9:00pm during the year in addition to the eleven classes during the year. Facilitators are needed by early August each year. All facilitators must have a criminal background check and follow all our safe environment policies.
