Confirmations at Advent
 
 
 
 
We celebrated the Confirmation of 4 students at 12:30pm Spanish worship last Sunday, and will confirm 3 students at 9am English worship this Sunday, June 3!

Confirmation is an opportunity for a young person to affirm their faith after two years of study with their peers. We celebrate the work and growth of our 7 confirmation students, and this step in their faith development.

Pack a lunch and let the kids burn energy in the sprinklers while enjoying time for grown up conversation.
