Dear Friends of Kenilworth Union Church,
Confirmation is this weekend; a chance for ninth graders to affirm the promises made at their baptism and to join Kenilworth Union Church as adult members, fully engaged in their faith journey. Confirmation has been the Church’s chance to partner with these young people in community, prayer, theology and service. Together, you participated with them in over 150 hours of service, 400 hours of worship. The saying, “it takes a village” is most certainly true in this situation. But, here’s the challenge: our partnership with these young people does not end when they participate in the rite of confirmation. They are your neighbors, your family members, fellow church members. How will you invite them into the important work of loving God and neighbor?
Thanks be to God for this community of faith,
Reverend Katie Snipes Lancaster
Associate Minister of Youth and Families
