Confirmation Update- Week of October 16-23

Dear Students in the Confirmation Program

Yesterday, our class took a hard look at the question, “What’s in a Name?”  We learned that Biblical names all have meanings.  Further, we learned that many of our surnames (last names) once had a similar meaning (like a “Smith” is someone who worked with metal, a “Baker” was a Baker, etc…).  We also learned that when we dishonor God’s Name (2nd Commandment), we sin against Him. 

The First Petition deals with keeping God’s name holy among each of us. We pray that we do this by believing in the only True God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), and by living the life that God calls us to live.

We also saw the Youth Alpha presentation on prayer.

If you would like to review the class, or if you missed the class, you can click here to here to listen to the class audio as well as download a pdf of the PowerPoint presentation.

ALSO: Our Youth Group will be kicking off this year with a trip to the SPOOKY WALK at Camp PaQuaTuck in Center Moriches on Saturday, October 29. Meet at Church at 5:30pm.  Cost is $20 per person for admission.  If you’d like to purchase food, bring a little extra money.  There will be a sign up sheet circulated this coming Sunday at Class. For more information, please speak with Mr. or Mrs. Ansbach
