We have officially started up our confirmation class, with one energetic class of 7th graders, and one class of nine older, returning students. We started with a delicious and eclectic meal for families, students, and mentors, then with just students we grappled with the question, “Can it be proven that God exists?” The conversation was lively! We look forward to more like it. Please keep these young people, teachers, and families in your prayers this year as we continue to grapple with some of the tough questions about life and faith. In the spring, we will have seven students here at St. Martin who will stand before the congregation to affirm their baptism, and two at our sister congregation at Bethlehem.
