In early 2020, our 8th grade Confirmation students prepared their faith affirmation statements. This was their opportunity to confirm the promises their parents and sponsors made at their baptism, and to share with the congregation their beliefs. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 virus, many students did not have a chance to share their faith statements during worship. Also, Confirmation Sunday and their banquet was unable to happen as originally planned.

Fortunately, we were able to celebrate Confirmation Sunday on August 30, 2020.

Each week leading up to this Sunday, we highlighted 3 confirmands in the weekly announcements and on this page, including a video of their faith affirmations.

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement
during this time and throughout their faith life.
