Last Sunday 49 sixth-graders became members of our church after completing their confirmation program.
We can all be proud of this group and their accomplishments in this 8-month journey to study not only the United Methodist Church but also other religions of the world. They are challenged to grow their faith through this process, which is not always an easy task for a 12-year-old.
The Affirmation of Faith in last Sunday’s bulletin was written by the Confirmation Class, and I was inspired by their words: “We believe the church is a safe haven to worship and be close to God.” I hope you will take a moment to read the complete Affirmation of Faith. Kudos to the 2016 Confirmation Class, the parent volunteers, Director of Youth Ministries Andrew Mochrie, and Rev. Casey Orr.
