We wish to congratulate Lucas, Jessica and Rebecca for making confirmation. After meeting almost weekly with Pastor Albert since January, they appeared before the Board of Elders for a conversation on their understanding of our faith. They then shared their personal faith statements with the Elders, after which they answered the questions for professing their faith according to the Reformed liturgy.
On Pentecost Sunday, May 23, they professed their faith before the congregation and were welcomed into membership by Pastor Albert and the CCD church family. The service was followed by a fellowship outside on the lawn in front of the church. "They worked very hard," says Pastor Albert. "I am proud of them for how far they have come in their faith journey, and I look very much forward to their participation in the life of our church and to see how they will be using their gifts in ministry."
Congratulations also to their parents and families. We give thanks to God for his love and faithfulness and lift them up in prayer as they continue in their spiritual growth at CCD.
