As parents bring their children to baptism, they are entrusted to help their child grow in the Christian faith and promise: “… to live with them among God’s faithful people, bring them to the word of God and the holy supper, teach them the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed and the Ten Commandments, place in their hands the holy scriptures, and nurture them in faith and prayer, so that your children may learn to trust God, proclaim Christ through word and deed, care for others and the world God made, and work for justice and peace.” Confirmation, or the Affirmation of Baptism, is the time when confirmands declare for themselves that they will live out the promises made for them by their parents and sponsors in their baptism.
Affirmation of Baptism Services
The 2018 Confirmation Services will be on October 28 at 8:30 and 10:00 a.m.
Be in worship to celebrate with 41 of our young people who will affirm their Baptism in the rite of Confirmation. When they were baptized, we promised to nurture them in the faith. By holding this event during our regularly scheduled Sunday worship services, we all get to celebrate with them as they pledge to continue on this path. Both services will feature the contemporary music and beautiful traditions that have been part of AOB at Our Saviour’s for years. Enjoy the Reformation presentation and traditional music at the Saturday evening service, then come back to uphold our young people in their faith on Sunday morning. Don’t miss this opportunity!
