Forms you’ll need:

Stewardship project forms due May 30.
Teen form     Parent form
The Confirmation Stewardship project is done with your teen. The activity should take 2 to 4 hours.  Suggestion: sorting food at a food bank, serving meals at a shelter, playing games/visiting with residents at a nursing home. We want them to serve God’s people…the hungry, homeless and sick. If you are unsure if your idea qualifies, email Dawn at dcavanaugh@sfxmedina.org or call 330-764-8958. After the project is completed, complete two forms (linked above).
