The Rite of Confirmation

Dear Friends of Kenilworth Union Church,

We are all on a lifelong journey of ‘growing up in God.’ That journey, scripture affirms, begins before we were born, for God knit us together in our mother’s womb—we are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139)   

Throughout our lives, we are offered a multitude of rituals to reaffirm our faith, deepening the holy experience of God’s presence with us. This weekend is one of those rituals—the rite of confirmation.

Our 61 ninth graders have spent the year worshiping, serving, and learning about God-in-community and now they will stand before you on Sunday to say “yes” to God and “yes” to membership in the Church. Please be with us to confirm and affirm them.

Reverend Katie Snipes Lancaster
