Confirmation

A GLIMPSE AT THE FACES OF R.G.P.C.

Thoughts about time, talents and treasures from our Confirmation Class

•   Jesus would tell me to continue to care for others and to give away things I no longer need.
•   My church opens its doors to all people.
•   We need a change in heart sometimes to follow Jesus.
•   You should always be willing to help people less fortunate than you.
•   Jesus wants us to focus on the most important task…following him and his word.
•   The closer you are to God the better off you are.
•   My faith is young, not yet strong and knowledgeable but in learning about my faith here I am taking   steps forward.
•   We should be thankful and forgiving. Jesus says we must forgive one another and have big faith.
•   Even when we are tired we still should listen for the Lord.
•   We should all be good Samaritans and be helpful in and out of the church.
•   I’m not saying you shouldn’t have anything to do with money, but you shouldn’t cherish it or   make it your number one priority. I think Jesus is saying basically that we should use our money to serve God. We should learn how to manage our money and use it for the right things.
•   Each of us should use the gifts that God has given us.
•   I’m not really much like the widow who gave all she had, but I would like to be more like her.
•   When we give money to a church or to the needy it’s like giving money to God.
•   Jesus is telling us that we should accept each other and forget about our differences.
•   The kingdom of God is present so I will help those in need, give to the needy, be humble and   thankful, love my neighbors and pray to God.
•   Jesus is my friend, a friend that will always lend me a little bit of faith.
•   Yes, I will be your witness at home. I will love and support my family.
