On Sunday, November 15tth we will confirm four young people at Faith United Church of Christ: Adam Gossett, Hayes and Fischer Marlow and Ava Perry. We have been meeting for two one hour sessions every Sunday via zoom since September 13th. We’ve been using the re-form material from Spark House Publications. It has been Janet Sherman’s and my privilege and pleasure to lead these sessions and work with these talented young people who are a credit to their families and to Faith UCC. It has been our practice at Faith UCC to ask the young people to take a portion of the UCC Statement of Faith and give their take on it, what it means to them. Here are the portions they have chosen:
Hayes Marlow – “You call the worlds into being, create persons in your own image, and set before each the ways of life and death.”
Fischer Marlow – “You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.”
Adam Gossett – “In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior, you have come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to yourself.”
Ava Perry – ” You promise to all who trust you forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, your presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in your realm which has no end.”
Be sure and join us in person or via zoom to hear what they have to say and be part of their confirmation.
