Sr. High Confirmation 2018:

On Sunday, December 2, 2018, we celebrated the confirmation of Jenna Havert, Lynzee Havert, Josh Mercer, Ben Talbot and Trinity Wells.

Confirmation class is a re-affirmation of the baptismal vows that were made on the youth’s behalf when they were younger. We walked with them as we explored who we are as Christians and what the foundations of our United Methodist beliefs are.  In addition we read through the entire gospel of Mark during our time together, two chapters per week.  The entire congregation was encouraged to read along with the youth and their leaders.  Confirmation 2018 began on Sunday October 7th and continued every Sunday until November 25th.  Congratulations to the youth and their leaders.
