2021 Spring Confirmation Celebration

 In Featured, News

Written by Jason Kramme, Pastor of Spiritual Formation

Around 14 years ago, fifteen families gathered around a baptismal font with their child, a pastor, and this congregation to make and celebrate some promises. The promise they gathered to celebrate is that the God we worship covers us with grace, sends us with mission, and calls us child. The promises they made were to ensure that these young people knew about this grace, mission, and name they’ve been given.

This week, these young people will have a chance to affirm their baptism. To put that another way, they’ll have a chance to say “yes” to this good news spoken over them so many years ago. Furthermore, they’ll have a chance to tell their families and this congregation about the faith journey they hope this affirmation will initiate.

Together, we get to bring to life the words of Hebrews 12:1-2: Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.

Please join me, cloud of witnesses, as we celebrate with these young people:
