Affirmation of Baptism
October 28, 2018 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0
In the bath waters of baptism God gives us new life in Christ. God’s Water drowns us in our sin and we come up out of the waters in new life. In the water and Word God claims us forever and always, marking us with the sign of the cross. Daily we are to remember the gift of our bap-tism, giving God thanks and praise.
Affirmation of baptism marks a significant milestone in one’s faith journey and serves as a renewed sign of participation in the life of the church. But it’s not the end of the journey! On Sunday, October 29, the following youth will af-firm the promises made on their behalf at their baptism; renouncing the devil and publicly confessing their faith.
As a community of believers we continue to pray, asking the Holy Spirit to guide these youth, helping them to keep their heart open to learning, loving, and serving others.
All are invited to come and to worship and celebrate with the Confirmands and their families at the Affirmation of Baptism Service held at 11:45 am. .
