Confirmation - Oct. 2nd
September is rolling around the corner and I am sure you will be wondering not only about school, but of conformation.
Well I have some news for you!
Confirmation will start Wednesday, October 2 at Our Saviors Church in Aurora. Doors will be open at 5:00 with dinner ready shortly thereafter. Confirmation will start will be 5:30 -6:30. Confirmation this year are for you students who will be in 7th and 8th grade this school year.
We will have a basket for you to deposit your cellphone, you should have your Bible, and questions ready about the Old Testament. More questions, ideas, food, some laughs, and the love of God will be provided.
We will discuss acolyte schedule, confirmation schedule, and your expectations for the year at our first meeting. I am hoping we will have time for a game or two.
I look forward working with you confirmands this coming year.
