Our Confirmation Class began on October 22, 2017 and will continue on the 2nd and 4th Sunday (when there is Sunday School). Meeting time is 11:15 am (after the morning Service) in the Church Parlor for approximately an hour. Teaching the class with Pastor Jarv will be another member of the church. Their official title will be Shepherd of the class.
A message from Pastor Jarv to the class:
The confirmation experience is one where hopefully many pieces of the spiritual puzzle will come together for you-- and yet it is also the beginning of your adult journey in the faith, raising for you many questions that will never be answered to your complete satisfaction.
Sound weird? Well, of course it is weird, but so is becoming an adult… realizing we don’t have all the answers…
Yes, you will be leaning about God, Jesus, Spirituality, and the church, but we will also embark on new territory. It will not be enough for us to decide ethically what is right or wrong. We will concern ourselves more with why is something right or why is something wrong. How do we make decisions concerning our life as Christians as well as citizens of this country?
AND we will be having fun. A big part of being a Christian is building community, and they key ingredient in that endeavor is what makes for a good time.
You will also have close contact with a sponsor from the church as we will have some joint activities.
