Confirmation Packets Tonight

In addtion to our regular session tonight, we will be presenting Confirmation packets to our 8th graders. This packet lays out the immediate preparation for Confirmation, including information about doing service, choosing a sponsor, and selecting a confirmation name. For each of these, the young people are asked to reflect upon what it is that they are doing. Reflection is key to making sure that this is not just some kind of “jumping through hoops” to meet requirements. When we reflect upon our faith in action, we come to see how God’s grace is present and active in our lives.

Lots to do and so little time…!
