So you're going to make your Affirmation of Baptism, your Rite of Confirmation, this fall?
1.Sunday, October 20, 2019, at 8:30 am (as of now) will be our next Confirmation Sunday at which confirmands may make their Affirmation of Baptism. It's a great idea to invite baptismal sponsors (godparents) and others you hold dear.
2.The preceding Sunday, October 13, 2019, at 9:30 am (as of now) confirmands will share your Faith Project at a Faith Fair in the Fellowship Hall. This doesn’t involve public speaking in front of a packed room (unless you choose to do that for their Faith Project). It’s simply sharing one-on-one whatever you create to express where you are on your faith journey.
4.So how do you prepare your Faith Project?
Start with honestly reflecting on your faith and life in God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Write down your answers to these questions and submit a copy (hardcopy or email) to Pastor Steve NO LATER THAN JULY 1. Be sure your name is on anything you turn it.

Now decide how you’re going to share your reflections with the congregation by considering what you enjoy doing. Would you like to share your thoughts by writing an essay or story or poem? Or maybe you’d like to compose and/or sing a song? Choreograph a dance? How about creating a skit or a piece of art? Woodworking, anyone? Design a lesson to teach young Sunday School students or a service project to share God’s love? The possibilities are endless.
Create your Faith Project.
Set an interview time with Pastor Steve to discuss your completed project. Pastor Steve has blocked off interview times on Saturday, September 7. It is your job to schedule an interview time with him. t.
