Church Care Team Training August 23rd at 12:00 p.m.

I am looking for about 8-12 people who would be interested in helping with congregational care. What this would require is you to be willing to help in worship connect with people who are new to our church, be willing to reconnect with those who have not attended in a while, and be part of prayer team that would pray for our church, community and world. I will provide lunch.

Confirmation Info

This year we will have confirmation for all ages. We have missed a couple of youth and adults who have not gone through confirmation. Confirmation refers to the decision a person makes to respond to God’s grace with intentional commitment, publicly reaffirming his or her baptismal vows before the congregation or professing their faith through the sacrament of Baptism. During confirmation class, confirmands learn about the meaning of Christian faith; the history and teachings and The United Methodist Church; and an explanation of the baptismal and membership vows they will be professing.

 

We will have a confirmation setup meeting on August 23rd at 9:30 a.m. and this is required for those who are going to be attending confirmation. Confirmation classes will begin during the Sunday School hour starting on September 13th.

 

I am looking for people who want to serve as mentor’s. We will have Mentor training August 16th during the Sunday School Hour.  Confirmation Sunday this year will be November 15th. How cool will it be to be confirmed with the Bishop in the house. If you want to join us for confirmation come to either the mentor training or to the confirmation setup meeting August 23rd.
