Confirmation Parent Meetings
Regular parent meetings are an important part of each child's faith formation as Pastor Garred and Pastor Pingel lead the parents through the materials their children will be learning in the coming weeks and answers questions that may come up. These meetings prepare the parents to answer most of the questions their youth are likely to ask as they work their way through confirmation instruction. This is also a time for parents to be refreshed on their understanding of what we believe, teach and confess as Christians, and for mutual support and encouragement as we all seek to pass on the one true faith that saves to our children. At least one parent is asked to attend each session, and both parents are welcome. Parent meetings are finished for this year.
Practice for Rite of Confirmation for Parents and 8th grade confirmands will be held on Wednesday, May 3rd from 6:30-7:30 pm.
