Jesus asked Peter, “Who do you say that I am?” In response he declared: “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16). He was right! The church is based on this insight.
This Sunday, October 23rd, several youth will confirm their faith in Jesus as the Messiah and Son of God. They will state the reason for their faith and why they want to become a part of his church. Some will be baptized, others anointed as a remembrance of their baptism. This will be the main part of our service and we rejoice with them!
We will also sing to God, pray together, and be blessed with fellowship and nursery care.
There will only be Sunday School for the Kindergarten to Grade 3 class. Everyone else will be in the sanctuary for this confirmation service. It will be shorter than usual, and focused on being a part of these faith statements!
And yes, there will be cake afterwards!
