What is Mentoring? Faith mentoring for Lent is being accompanied by a caring adult from the congregation through a study and getting to know them, offering your faith journey and praying alongside them. This year the study is on the Lord’s Prayer. You will be provided with a study guide. When our students get to the end of confirmation, they most often say that mentoring was the best experience of their education!
What is the commitment? Meet with your mentor a total of 6 times between March 3 and April 24th for 30 minutes at a time. The sessions will be at your own time and pace throughout Lent. We will have a final wrap up session together on April 24th as well. Here is the schedule:
March 3: Mentor Match Up & Lunch
12:00pm: Gather for lunch, mentor matches, orientation and kick off
Between March 3 and April 21: Meet one on one or in pair groups (another mentor and mentee group) for 4 sessions (30ish minutes each). We suggest meeting for soup supper dinner and going to worship together. You can choose a time that is mutually agreeable with the student and his/her parents.
March 29: 6:00pm Bunco Party @ OSLC mentors/mentees invited!
April 24th: 6:30pm Celebration! Final session and wrap up with mentors/mentees
