Youth 6th to 12th grade gather for Bible Study from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings in room 0015 in the Westbrook Building, on the lowest level of the Divinity School. The class focuses on an Old Testament book each fall and a New Testament book each spring. This pattern allows students to study scripture in depth. During the six years from 6th grade to high school graduation, participants will study nearly the entirety of the Bible. This class meets weekly during the academic year.
The youth of the Congregation are active in serving others, participating alongside other members of the congregation. Youth sometimes serve as ushers during worship, some have assisted with Habitat for Humanity and others have bagged potatoes for the “potato drop”. Most Saturday Service Projects organized by the Mission and Outreach Committee warmly welcome youth participation.

“Confirmation” is the process by which youth become members of the Congregation at Duke University Chapel. Youth may either confirm the baptismal vows their parents took on their behalf when they were younger or may profess the faith and be baptized if they were not previously baptized. The confirmation experience, which includes classes, conversation with mentors, and special events, is typically offered every other year. Please contact [email protected] for information concerning the next confirmation class.
