The water at church is being tested to try and determine why Confirmands want to continue conversations and fellowship and not leave after Wednesday Confirmation concludes! So far, we do not think this is anything close to a problem; we’re just thankful for the relationships this class has forged with one another.
Confirmation class for 7th and 8th graders is held on Wednesday evenings beginning with worship at 6:45 and class concluding at 8:15pm. We have watched and discussed the new Christian film To Save a Life, which talks about many of the problems high school and middle school students face today. Our Wednesday Confirmation experience combines youth from St. John’s Lutheran Church in Cumberland and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Cumberland along with Christ Lutheran youth. Adult leaders are Carolyn Schrock (our youth director) Lisa Jenkins, Pastor Marsha Garrett (pastor at St. Paul’s) and Pastor Chuck.
