Confirmation Services for Groups 1 and 2 – May 7, 2023

We have 23 confirmands this year at Joy proclaiming their faith in Jesus and committing their way to him. The 23 split into three services, two on May 7 and one on May 14 at 9:30a. This video merges the faith statements and blessings from both May 7th services into one. Unfortunately, the video at the 1:30p service didn’t work so well, but the audio can be heard. Come back next week to see the third group of confirmands. You will be blessed.
