Confirmation Ministry – New Grand Rapids Partnership
Over the last few months a group of LCMS churches from around Grand Rapids have been meeting and looking to cast a vision of collaborating on monthly events for Confirmation students. We are hoping that by joining together:
• We can pool our resources to offer engaging fellowship events and service opportunities
• That smaller congregations can experience similar opportunities that larger youth ministries offer.
• And that students will gain a greater awareness of the church at large.
On Sunday May 22, a step towards this collaboration was taken as 5 churches, 40 students and 12 adults met together for an event at Rockford High School. We enjoyed ice breakers, large group games, pizza, dreaming up other events and discussing how we are all part of the body of Christ. Starting in September we will be meeting on the third Sunday of each month.
