Confirming Confirmation 2016-17

By Keith Lee, Associate Pastor

As Confirmation Class 2016 was presenting “Tell Me Who I am” on Pentecost Sunday, I could not have been more proud and honored. We met Sunday mornings at 9:30 from fall to spring; all the confirmands participated with sincerity, curiosity, and consistency. We also had a group building session where we sang, played games, made t-shirts, and worked on faith statements. In addition, the parents provided practical support, encouragement, and fun. The confirmands and parents gave tremendously to the whole process. Moreover, the confirmands offered a moving presentation about their identity in Christ. I felt that they gave me more than what I have given them.

I share all this because Confirmation 2016-17 is about to begin in September. Therefore, if your child is a rising 7th grade or older and has never been confirmed in the church, then please consider having him or her join the class. We will meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 beginning late-September and end in mid-June. We will have lock-ins, field trips and engaging classes. A Confirmation packet with a schedule will be available toward the end of August.

Finally, I would to ask three parents to volunteer as group leaders for the whole year. Last year Jamie Loving and Loren Monroe, who participated in almost every session, helped us to engage in class and build relationships with one another. Looking forward to another outstanding Confirmation class!
