Five bright youth have formed a 2023 Confirmation Class. Please pray for them as they continue in their faith journey and work to strengthen their beliefs and their relationship to God.
We have had 2 of our 8 classes so far and have attended the UCC Winter Youth Retreat together in Blowing Rock. Our youth are bonding and exploring faith questions and learning many things about the bible and the church.
They’re recognizing themselves as created in the image of God.
They’re reading the bible as living word and listening for how God is still speaking to them.
They’re re-interpreting biblical text to reflect its relevance for them today.
They’re identifying the richness, benefits, and strengths that being part of our faith community offers.
They’re dreaming about the church of the future and how they might impact it.
Next we’ll be studying the history of the Christian church, the history of the UCC denomination, and the history of CUCC. Then we’ll be exploring covenants and creating our own, and finally, the youth will prepare their expressions of faith for Confirmation Sunday which will be held on April 23 2023.
Please direct any questions or ideas you might have to Pastor Santi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
