On Sunday, May 19, 2019, we will have the privilege of celebrating with our first class of youth confirmands from Church of the Redeemer. We are so grateful for these students who are choosing to make this personal profession of faith, or as we have discussed in class, an outward sign of an inward reality.
During the six weeks of Lent, each of these confirmands is attending an hour-long Sunday morning Confirmation class led by Nathan Hedman. They also are working on daily catechesis materials, keeping a daily journal, and meeting weekly with their sponsors to review and walk through all they are learning and experiencing. They will attend a Confirmation Retreat led by our youth leadership team (Melissa Lewkowicz, Nathan Hedman, and Valerie Sagero) on March 29-30.
These are the participants in our 2019 youth confirmation class:
Anna Cox, sponsored by Rachel Yowell
Anna Davis, sponsored by Evy Warring
Caroline Grunewald, sponsored by Valerie Sagero
Emily Hawkins, sponsored by Debbie Vosburgh
Mary Kate Wise, sponsored by Helen Van Wagenen
Rivers West, sponsored by Adam Hubert
We cannot wait to welcome them as confirmed members in the Anglican church on May 19th. Please keep them in your prayers throughout the next several weeks as they lean hard into the love of Christ in a deep and meaningful way!
