Confirm or Conform

This week we will have the supreme joy of witnessing 13 young people stand up before the congregation and confirm their faith. This is an extremely important step for our 8th and 9th graders. They live in a world that is trying to squeeze them into its mold, to conform to the standards of the culture. We celebrate their decisions to keep in step with the Spirit and live for Jesus.

On Sunday, we will revisit Matthew 13:44-46 and consider how all of us can lay hold of the treasure that is found in Jesus.

We will also recognize the wonderful Sunday school teachers and helpers that have faithfully served this year. What a blessing they have been!

See you in church!

Songs we’re singing this week:
