Confirmation Sunday – 12/2/2018

Today we celebrated the confirmation of Trinity Wells, Jenna Havert, Lynzee Havert, Josh Mercer, and Ben Talbot.

Brothers and sisters in Christ:  Through the Sacrament of Baptism we are initiated into Christ’s holy church.  We are incorporated into God’s mighty acts of salvation and given new birth through water and the Spirit.  All this is God’s gift, offered to us without price.

Through confirmation and through the reaffirmation of our faith, we renew the covenant declared at our baptism, acknowledge what God is doing for us, and affirm our commitment to Christ’s holy church.

With God’s help we will proclaim the good news and live according to the example of Christ.  We will surround Trinity, Ben, Lynzee, Jenna and Josh with a community of love and forgiveness, that they may grow in their trust of God, and be found faithful in their service to others.  We will pray for them, that they may be true disciples who walk in the way that leads to life.

We give thanks for all that God has already given you and we welcome you in Christian love.  As members together with you in the body of Christ and in this congregation of the United Methodist Church, we renew our covenant faithfully to participate in the ministries of the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, and our service, that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.
