To prepare for Confirmation, these nine young people gathered each Sunday throughout the year to study the Bible, learn about the Methodist tradition ,and have open discussions about what it means to be a United Methodist Christian in the world today.
Confirmation Teachers Kathy Hansen, Pete Meyer, Ruth Zervas, Chris Ladd along with Pastor Joe and Lisa Rogers are gratefully acknowledged for their dedication to and their love and support of our Confirmands. After a Celebration Breakfast on Sunday, May 12, the Rite of Confirmation was held during the 10:30 am Worship Service.
