10th Grade Confirmands
Letter sent August 2022
Confirmands and Parents,
As the school year approaches, we are preparing for your Rite of Confirmation. This letter outlines what is needed for Confirmation and includes forms to be filled out and returned to church.
Please put September 7th at 7:30PM on your calendars. This will be our meeting to go over the expectations and plans for our Confirmands.
Before being confirmed, we will be meeting with our Confirmands to discuss what it means to confirm and affirm their faith. Beginning September 14th, we will meet on Wednesday nights for 45 minutes at 8:00PM (after Wednesday Worship). During this time, we will be going over the promises that will be made in confirmation and working on a faith statement. This faith statement isn’t meant as a test or proof, but as a way for our Confirmands to dig deep into their faith. There is a form included with information on what the faith statement should be.
To make sure you keep up with our meeting times and other updates, please join the Remind app group. The code is: @oslcnu10
The Saturday before Confirmation, October 29th, we will gather in the Social Hall at 10:00AM to practice for worship, to take pictures, and to go over last-minute details. Please make sure you have this on your calendar!
We will celebrate the Rite of Confirmation on Sunday, October 30th at the 10:30AM service. Our worship service will be livestreamed that day on our Facebook page, so you can let friends and family who cannot attend know where to find it. Afterwards we ask that Confirmands stand in the Social Hall so the congregation can congratulate them on their Confirmation.
We are so blessed to be celebrating this milestone with you and your family. If you have questions, please contact the church office or email Pastor Dave, or Pastor Kathy.
