Eighth grade confirmation program
F.O.C.U.S. is West Side’s confirmation program, in which 8th graders learn what it means for Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior and how to actively live out their faith as a member of the church. Retreats, service projects, social events, and regular worship attendance further this learning and create bonds of friendship within the group. See the separate FOCUS page for details.
