A Church shows their young people how much God loves them through offering them opportunities to learn and grow. Confirmation is a longstanding practice especially in Lutheran churches, where we spend two years together with kids aged 6th grade thru high school, to learn about God in a “grown up” way – one that fulfills the promises made at our baptism, by our parents and sponsors. Lately, we tend to call this class “Affirmation of Baptism” and it features a special worship service after the two years are completed, where the congregation all celebrate the “growing in faith” of their young people. Our confirmation class at Holy cross is looking like a big one this year – five kids so far, and more possible. Won’t you join us? Call Pastor Patricia+ for more information.  We meet one Sunday afternoon a month. Older people who want to experience confirmation can be part of the program, too. Let’s talk!
