  Congratulations, Confirmation Class of 2019! These youth went through a six-week study, learning so much about themselves and the Church. Our lessons consisted of Methodism, baptism, prayer, Jesus and God, just to name a few. We are so proud of these young people and look forward to seeing them grow in their faith.
