So you're going to make your Affirmation of Baptism, your Rite of Confirmation, this fall?
1.Sunday, October 21, at 8:30 am you will make your Affirmation of Baptism. If you haven’t already done so, invite your baptismal sponsors and others you hold dear.
2.The preceding Sunday, October 14, at 9:30 am (between services) you 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 your Faith Project). It’s simply sharing one-on-one whatever you create to express where you are on your faith journey.
3.Select a Bible verse that can become your confirmation verse we’ll read as you are confirmed. Need examples? Click here.
