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.
