Confirmation Celebration!

What a wonderful day we had this past Sunday. Of course we had the opportunity to sing A Mighty Fortress is Our God, because after all it was Reformation Sunday, but we also had the opportunity to celebrate with six confirmands whom had the opportunity to affirm their faith!

I did not have the chance to lead these six youth through confirmation classes as I have not been in my call for even two months. Through reading their faith statements though, I have a sense for what they have learned and the challenges and growth that have already come to them.

It is my prayer that as they continue in their walk that they strive to learn more about themselves and to discern where God is calling them in their lives.

This is a great fun picture from Sunday afternoon!
