Confirmation: "I Believe" Statements

On Monday, April 15, our Confirmation class gathered for a celebratory dinner with their families. At the end of our meal, our confirmands each stood up and shared their statements of faith. They'd been working on these statements throughout our time together in Confirmation class. Please take a moment to read through their statements, included below, and say a prayer for them as they continue their journey of faith. Tristan Burk Who am I?
