On June 4th, our Messiah community witnessed and celebrated the reaffirmation of baptismal vows and the public confession of faith of eight of our youngest members. Often called "Confirmation," this ceremony marks an important point in young Christians' lives as they proudly claim the promises and gift of faith they received in baptism. Our confirmation students have spent the past two years studying and preparing for confirmation with Pastor Franz. During that time, students explored the Bible, Small Catechism, and their own questions and wonderings about how to put our faith into action. Congratulations to our newly confirmed Messiah members on this important milestone in your life of faith!
