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.
Confirmation Class is offered to both 7th and 8th grade students and runs from January through March each year. A compact and thorough understanding and commitment to Jesus Christ, Bible Study and Presbyterianism are highlighted.
