Today is Confirmation Sunday!

While the United Methodist Church believes that baptism is sufficient initiation into the church,

The process of confirmation…is a natural fit for the
distinctive United Methodist theology that emphasizes the need for
justifying grace, repentance, and conversion later in life.

It is also a time that our confirmands take responsibility for the vows made for them at their baptism, namely that:

They renounce the spiritual forces of wickedness, reject the evil powers of this world, and repent of their sins.

They accept the freedom and power God gives them to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves.

They confess Jesus Christ as their Savior, put their whole trust in his grace, and promise to serve him as their Lord, in union with the Church which Christ has opened to people of all ages, nations, and races.

They will be faithful to Trinity Tower United Methodist Church with their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service and their proclamation of Jesus Christ as Lord.

Come join us as we welcome our new brothers and sisters in Christ!
