Confirmation class

A new group of students has begun a Confirmation class. The candidates are Andrew Bean, Ross Cronholm and Kyelar Enyen.

Meeting on Sundays at 12:45 p.m. in the Parlor, the group enters the next part of their faith journey as they explore scriptures and church life with each other and with various mentors.
