Confirmation Retreat


Hey confirmands it just goes with being a Confirmand ;

you, yes You, are going to be asked about faith.  

Well what do you say? How about the UCC Faith Statement?

That is always a great place to start but honestly what does it mean to have faith and to live a life of faith.

Can I still have questions?

What if some of it just doesn’t make sense?

Quick answer: yes and even your pastor has faith struggles from time to time.

Our United Church of Christ speaks about “testimonies, not tests of faith” which means that God and God’s people are thrilled that you are taking time to grow your faith...AND that living your faith is a glorious journey.
