2013-14 Confirmation Class Confirmed
The backbone of our confirmation program is the incredible passion of the parents who are so committed to their child's faith. #awesome— Paul Rasmussen (@revrasmussen) May 19, 2014
It was quite a scene on Sunday, May 18, at 2 in the afternoon. Well over a thousand people gathered in the sanctuary as over 200 members of this year’s confirmation class were confirmed.
This group had just completed a twelve month intensive program of education and spiritual formation. They had explored our faith heritage, Jewish, Catholic, Episcopal and Methodist. They had also explored our faith practices and beliefs. Then, at the end of the year, they explored what it meant to respond to Jesus’ call to be a disciple. At a retreat Pine Cove they wrote letters to God in which they responded to that call.
This year’s confirmation class was led by Amy and Jayson Bales, Becky and Joe Gould, and Ginger and Scott Webster, as well as over forty small group leaders and numerous other parents who were a part of the leadership team. We owe a great debt of gratitude to all those who volunteered to make this year so successful.
The class is now promoted into our youth ministry. Werm (Andrew Wermelskirchen) will be working with them as their new youth pastor.
Our new confirmation class will begin on Sunday, June 1. Learn More
