Confirmation: 2014-2016

Being ourselves and being like Jesus.

(a purpose statement created by the current students and Pastor Clark)

The Time: Fall 2014 – Fall 2016

Sunday, September 7th, 2014 to Sunday, October 30th, 2016

Fall 2014 basics

When: Sundays, 9-9:45am
Where: Pastor’s office

Manna & Mercy

Bring your bible! The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is recommended, because that’s what you’ll hear in worship at All Saints.

The book Manna & Mercy by Dan Ehrlander will be another main “text book” for Fall 2014. It’s more like a comic book than a text book–one you get to color and decorate yourself! It tells the whole story of the bible–Genesis to Revelation–creation to the fulfillment of time.

Martin Luther’s Small Catechism will be used as well.

Manna & Mercy and the Small Catechism will be provided to students at no cost. At students’ request, bibles can be provided as well.
