MESSAGE FROM RICKY

Dear Friends,

This coming Sunday is a very special day. We will be celebrating Confirmation for our 6th graders. This is a big milestone in these students’ journey of faith. For this past year, they have been studying the scriptures, church history, sacraments, and learning what it means to be a full member of the church. This Sunday they will make their public professions in Jesus Christ and accept for themselves their responsibility as a disciple. I have had the privilege, along with Katie Giedd, Nikki Parsons, Tom Edwards and a wonderful group of mentors, to walk with these students on this journey.

The confirmands will be presented in both services this Sunday as the whole church is called to participate in asking God’s Holy Spirit to rest on each of these disciples and empower them to fulfill their vows. And, as we always do when new members join, we too will renew our vows and covenant.

I hope you plan to join us in celebration and thanksgiving to God for the gift of faith and the privilege to become disciples of the Risen Lord Jesus!

Grace and Peace,

Ricky
