Learning with a Frog at a Birthday Party Under an Umbrella

05.03.19 | Faith by Rev Dave Buerstetta

Confirmation Sunday is always one of the best days in the life of the church. Young people publicly profess their faith in God, their desire to follow God in the Way of Jesus, and their willingness to do so as members of this congregation, Woodridge United Methodist Church. 

On Confirmation Sunday we experience the future melding into the present. On Confirmation Sunday we sit next to parents, siblings, grandparents, and other family members beaming with pride. On Confirmation Sunday we celebrate commitments made - by the teenagers, sure. But also by their parents and the entire congregation. Everybody has a vital role to play on Confirmation Sunday! 

Put all of this together and on Confirmation Sunday we embody hope. 

This Sunday, May 5th, is Confirmation Sunday here at Woodridge United Methodist Church. On this special Sunday we have just one worship service at 10:00 a.m. 

Plan to be present to experience all this — really, what could be better than witnessing hope embodied?! In his sermon, “Learning With a Frog At a Birthday Party Under an Umbrella,” Pastor Dave will celebrate the unique attributes of this current Confirmation class, while also  considering the example of past Confirmation classes as he explores what is possible for our future together. 

Congratulations to TJ, Josh, Veronica, Ethan, and all their families! 

Just one worship gathering this Sunday, May 5th at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome!
