Confirmation Sunday October 25th

We welcome three of our youth–Angelina Kassenborg, Mykala Listorti, and Ryan Loney— as adult members of the congregation through Affirmation of Baptism. In baptism their parents and sponsors and community of faith made promises to support them in their spiritual growth as Christians. On October 25th, 2015 they made promises for themselves to continue their journey as disciples of Christ. We support these young adults and celebrate the mission we share, living out our baptisms by proclaiming the good news to all the world!

Sunday School

Children Pre-K through 6th grade are invited up for the Children’s Time during our 10am worship each Sunday. They are then dismissed for Sunday School to learn more about a Bible story and do a craft or activity led by one of our rotating team of adult teachers. The children come back to the service for Holy Communion with their families.

 

Baptisms and First Communion

Baptisms may be arranged by calling the church office and speaking to Pastor Reggie. Baptisms are usually celebrated within the Sunday 10am worship service. First Communion instruction is offered when parents in consultation with the Pastor believe their child is ready to participate in this Sacrament.
