Becoming Beloved Community
At each baptism in the Episcopal church, several questions are asked of those wanting to begin a new life in the community of Christ. While some of these questions are about belief, others detail practices which sustain us in the work of “seeking and serving Christ in all persons.” In preparation for our pilgrimage to the Legacy Museum on October 19, the high school Sunday School class will explore how Christians in this region of the U.S. have both succeeded and failed in their practices to “honor the dignity of every human being.” Join us for conversations about how our faith calls us to engage the legacy of our shared history. We will meet in Room 368 from 10:10–11 a.m. starting Sunday, September 8. (Please note: Students need not attend the pilgrimage to participate in Sunday classes. The themes and ideas that will be presented in class are applicable to everyday life and all youth are encouraged to attend).
Colaborate: Bible Study
Sixth through eighth graders: join us for middle school Sunday School! This year we will take an in-depth look into the New Testament. Based on the “Colaborate: Bible Study” curriculum by Sparkhouse, we will use activities, videos, and scripture to ask questions such as, “Why do we hold Paul in such high esteem, given his poor track record with Christians?” and “Where did the Bible take place?” We will meet in Room 382 from 10:10–11 a.m. starting Sunday, September 8.

April 2019 Confirmands
True Grit with Kathy Roberts
Our Raising Youth Series is back with Kathy Roberts coming to speak on Sunday, April 7 at 6 p.m. As pendulums do, they will swing through a wide arc and swing right back. In the last decade, the parenting pendulum took us through a period of overprotection, helicopter parenting, and smoothing out the bumps and valleys of our children’s lives. Mostly out of fear and good intentions, we DID lots of things for our kids that they could have done for themselves. Our kids became Dis–abled, Dis-couraged, and lost confidence in their own skills. Most are now learning how to fail and recover at the age of 25, which is not ideal. But we parents are resilient and can learn a new way (or an old way!) to En-able and En-courage our kids to live independently, confidently and resiliently. Come share and learn with us as we see how we got to this place and how to change our path forward. Please RSVP to Maggie Paul, mpaul@cathedralATL.org.
Soup-er Bowl Sunday!
Super Bowl Sunday is quickly approaching, and that means the SOUP-er Bowl is too! Every year, the Cathedral helps predict the winner of the Super Bowl by collecting goods for Buckhead Christian Ministries in bins that represent the teams.
Youth Confirmation Starts Soon
Confirmation is when a person makes the decision to take ownership of the promises made by their parents, Godparents, and grandparents at their baptism, in order to live out their Baptismal Covenant. At the Cathedral, we encourage Confirmation during the 8th grade year, and our 8th grade Sunday school curriculum is a Confirmation curriculum. All youth are invited to participate in the Confirmation program if they feel ready, so long as they are at least in 8th grade.
