Confirmation and Reception!
August 16, 2015, 8:51 PM

We are blessed to be Recieving 7 people into the Anglican Communion this coming Sunday and Confirming 3 people!

Those being recieved have already made an adult proclamation of faith in another stream of the Christian Church, while those being confirmed will be making this adult proclamation for the first time.  As it states in our 1979 Book of Common Prayer:

"Concerning the Service

In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an
early age are expected, when they are ready and have been duly prepared,
to make a mature public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the
responsibilities of their Baptism and to receive the laying on of hands
by the bishop."

For those being recieved this event serves as a renewal of this proclamation they have previously made and an official welcome into the Anglican Communion. 
We welcome Bishop Herzog to preside over this glorious occasion.  Please pray with me that all those being received and confirmed are filled to the measure of all fullness with God and experience a new Pentecost as thier relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Flourishes!
