Easter Sunday, April 1st we celebrated the confirmations of Jayden McClellan, John Norton, Melissa Norton, Michelle Norton, Braden Pagán, and Afton Serviss. Through baptism, a baby, child, or adult becomes a member of God’s family, the Church. We promise to help this person grow to know God’s love. The preparation for confirmation begins on this special day!
For you Jesus came into the world; for you he died and conquered death; all this he did for you, little one, though you know nothing of it as yet. In baptism, you are sealed by the Holy Spirit and marked as Christ’s own forever. Amen.
And these are the vows we make each time we baptize a child:
Do you promise
To instruct this child
In the truth of God’s word.
In the way of salvation through Jesus Christ;
to pray for them, to teach them to pray;
and to train them in Christ's way by your example,
through worship, and in the nurture of the church?
So, let us remember that when these young people are confirmed, they are promising that this is the story they will wrestle with forever! May it be so for each of us!
