We made it through confirmation last week, so I have plenty of faith that you can do it this week with your group, too! I'll be thinking of you. :) Missed you at Montreat for ARW!
Sounds like someone is bucking the membership decline trend.
QP--that's an understatement! We have brought in about 50 new members (including confirmands) in the past 20 months. It's a little insane, actually--we don't have room for everyone! But it's awesome! There's a lot of energy here and a lot of ministry going on, so this is an exciting place to be.
Still trying to figure out how to do confirmation without crisis; wayyyyy too much drama involved, mostly from parents, not the kids.
Also trying to get five youth confirmed - including two baptized - this Sunday. Not any crises so far, but since this is only my second time of doing it I feel like there are so many little things to remember and I'm worried about them slipping through the cracks. Sending prayers your way!
