"JOURNEY" (formerly known as confirmation) is a time of intentional preparation giving 4th and 5th graders the opportunity to reflect on the most fundamental beliefs of our faith and offering them a safe environment to ask questions. This confirmation time helps our kids to investigate the depths of the faith and helps them begin to understand what it means to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ and to make their first public profession of faith through baptism. During this time our 4th and 5th graders "make firm" what has gone before: God's prevenient grace and witness of parents and other persons of faith, the teachings of the Bible, life together in the church and the student's growing faith.
Pastor Doug will be teaching this class on two consecutive Sundays, May 14 and May 21, during the 9:30 am hour in their regular classroom. Even if your child has done this class before, there will always be new material and parts worth repeating. By the time they have finished this class over two years, they will have had four hours of training. For those who are ready to be baptized or re-affirm their infant baptism, we will be having a service on Sunday, June 4.
If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Doug (firstname.lastname@example.org).
