Confirmation 2018

In the United Methodist Church, Confirmation is traditionally a significant step in a young person’s journey of faith. Confirmation is when youth are invited to claim for themselves the name Christian and then join the church.

From January-July, Pastor James and I met with a group of 10 young people who wanted to learn more about the Christian faith, the United Methodist Church and most importantly having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Confirmation helps with one’s faith walk, but what is most important is for a youth to make the decision to follow Christ.

Last month, we had this wonderful group of young people stand before the congregation and commit their lives to Christ. Each of them also chose to join Christ Church and support our ministries through their prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.

I am happy to introduce this amazing group of young people. Along with their picture is one of their quotes from the Confirmation video which can be found at facebook.com/christchurchdavenport.

Lindsey M:  I feel closer to Him (God) and I can ask Him anything. When I read the Bible, I feel like He gives me the right message out of the Bible.

Mackenzie R:  My faith walk has grown more in the past year than it has in my entire life by me reading my Bible more, praying more and me being more involved in the church community. So by getting involved in the church, I am just able to be around people that are holding me accountable in my faith and helping me grow in it.

Sean M:  On Sunday mornings I love to come, because I love the sermons. And I love how we have a theme that’s changing but it makes sense and I still get to learn stuff.

Logan A : Two years ago I really wouldn’t have thought of continuing to go to church after Endeavor ended [graduating high school] but lately I have really been feeling it. And I just really hope to continue with [my] walk with God and find a community wherever I end up.

Abby P : Christ Church in general has just helped me in my faith walk. I am excited to come on Sunday mornings, and see the band, and I am excited to meet with everybody during fellowship. And during Endeavor I am excited to come and serve in the youth band, and cook meals and go on all the activities that we do like the mission trips and retreats and all that.
