ConFESt: Confirmands’ Afternoon with the Bishop
Dallas, TX 75225 United States + Google Map
Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life, to which you were called and for which you made the good conFESsion in the presence of many witnesses. – 1 Timothy 6:12
- A short worship service with a message from the bishop.
- A photo for each confirmation class taken with the bishop.
- A ministry fair with information and involvement opportunities from synod and ELCA ministries.
- Food, of course!
The goals are for confirmation students to:
- get to know the bishop and youth from other congregations,
- learn about our wider church and how to get involved,
- worship, and
- have fun!
Congregations are invited to register your whole confirmation class, including teachers and adult advisers. As of January 2, there are 158 youth and adults registered!
We have an exciting opportunity for the offering. Bishop Momoh of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone (ELCSL) has requested copies of the small catechism (the pocket size). Although Krio and Mende are the languages most people speak in their daily lives, English is the official language, widely spoken, and used for official business and in schools, so our copies would be incredibly helpful. Please bring copies of the small catechism that we can collect and then send to Sierra Leone, or bring money (just $1 per copy) to cover the cost (we’ll have copies on hand for each attendee to put into the offering). We will be learning more about our accompaniment work and our connections to West Africa during this event.
If you are not attending and would like to donate toward this worthy cause, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP to make those arrangements.
