Congratulations to all those being confirmed – including 101 6th graders and 8 youth! Confirmation preparation is a 4-month process of learning more about our faith. It culminates in the chance for young people to make a public affirmation of their faith, take responsibility for living as a member of the body of Christ, and to fulfill God’s purposes. Thank you to all the adult mentors and friends-in-faith who walked beside these young people as they prepared for this important step.
