Pentecost Sunday, May 2012

The rite of confirmation is when a youth engages in study to further their growth as a disciple of Jesus Christ and make a public profession of their faith as part of the process of becoming an adult member of the congregation. On Sunday, May 27th, these seven youths confessed their faith to the congregation during worship service and have now officially become adult members of Old Zionsville United Church of Christ. Please welcome these new members!
