CONFIRMATION 2020

CREDO CONFIRMATION ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS STARTING MARCH 4TH,  5:30 PM UNTIL 6:30PM.

 

CONFIRMATION SCHEDULE:


MARCH 4TH-  CREATION, SIN, AND REDEMPTION.  CREATION INCLUDES US, DURING HUMANITY'S EARLIEST DAYS SIN ENTERED INTO OUR PERFECT STORY BUT SIN DOESN'T HAVE THE LAST WORD.

 

MARCH 18TH-  A CHURCH EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.  THIS AMAZING COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE ACCOMPLISH THE TASK OF BRINGING HEAVEN TO EARTH UNDER THE GUIDANCE AND DISCIPLINE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. 


MARCH 25TH-  MADE NEW IN CHRIST, GRACE AND SALVATION.  WHEN WE ARE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS AND FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE OUR LIVES WON'T STAY THE SAME.  WE ARE MADE NEW THROUGH GRACE BY FAITH AS GOD MOVES TOWARDS US IN THIS DIVINE PROCESS OF SALVATION.


APRIL 1ST: GRACE AND THE WAY OF SALVATION


APRIL 8TH-  WORSHIP AND SACRAMENTS.  OUR DISCIPLESHIP IS CENTERED AROUND WORSHIPPING AS A COMMUNITY OF LOVE, SUPPORT AND GRACE AS WE GROW IN OUR FAITH AND RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH THE HOLY MYSTERY OF SACRAMENTS.  WATERS OF BAPTISM AND THE BREAD AND CUP ARE TWO REMINDERS WE USE TO PHYSICALLY WITTNESS WHAT GOD'S GRACE AND WHO JESUS IS TO US ALL.


APRIL 15TH-  WESLEYAN QUADRILATERAL.  THE METHODIST CHURCH USES THE QUADRILATERAL AS A TOOL FOR DISCERNMENT ON THIS LIFE-LONG JOURNEY OF FAITH.  SCRIPTURE, TRADITION, EXPERIENCE AND REASON WORK TOGETHER TO UNITE US RATHER THAN DIVIDE US.


APRIL 22ND-  RENOUNCE, ACCEPT AND CONFESS.  BEFORE WE ACCEPT GOD'S FREEDOM AND CONFESS CHRIST, WE MUST FIRST REJECT THE THINGS THAT DISRUPT OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND OTHERS.


APRIL 29TH-  OUR PRAYERS, PRESENCE, GIFTS, SERVICE AND WITNESS.  THROUGH PRAYER, A COMMITMENT TO BE PRESENT WITH GOD'S PEOPLE, USING OUR GIFTS TO SERVE, WE BECOME WITNESSES TO GOD'S MIGHTY WORK IN AND THROUGH US!


MAY 3RD- CONFIRNATION SUNDAY- BOTH WORSHIP SERVICES
