Confirmation Journey Begins January 10

The 2016 Confirmation Journey will begin with a group building event for the twelve 8th graders and their covenant partners on Sunday, January 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Undercroft.  The first class session will take place on Sunday, January 17 at 9:45 a.m. on the second floor of the Middle House, back room.  Confirmation Sunday will be Sunday, June 5 at the 11am worship service.  Using the Heidelberg Catechism as a guide, the explorers will focus on the Bible, worship, the sacraments, polity, mission, church history, prayer, their own beliefs and much more.  The youth along with their parents will read the gospel of Luke.  Some of their mission projects will include Stop Hunger Now, a project at Camp Hanover during the congregational retreat, picking up a load of food for the food pantry, putting together Micah lunches and possibly helping to serve at a community dinner.  They are encouraged to attend some of the special services during Lent.  You may also see them serving as an usher and/or greeter with the covenant partner.
