We officially started the 2020 Confirmation year with a fun weekend at Björkögården! We have 26 students from 3 different churches! Isn't that a good looking crew! A lot of the students didn't know each other, signed up for confirmation alone, came from a different church... but by the end of the weekend something great happened... We formed together as one group. The weekend consisted of get to know you games, mixing and mingling, fika and food, team building games where we carried people in Big Bags, and some really important dialogue about faith, the Bible, is it logical to believe?, and what is a worship service? It was such a blessing to get away for a weekend, dig in to deep faith questions, and see this group form together over this weekend.
We have now begun our Saturday confirmation days. We gather all day once a month on Saturdays for a time of teaching, discussions, crafts and fun. Everything we do throughout the day connects back to the main theme of the day. This February we discussed the topic: You, Me, and God. We asked the questions: Who is God? and Who am I in relation to God? We got down into some deep identity questions. I am so impressed with the thoughts, questions, and participation with this confirmation group! They are jumping right in to this faith adventure we call Confirmation! This Month we will focus in on the theme Festernas Fest: The Party of All Parties! We will be looking at the Lord's Supper this month!
Support us this Year!
There have been so many people who have supported us this year already... and still many opportunities to jump in and lend a hand.
Please pray for us. Pray for our students. Pray for God to speak boldly into their lives. Pray that our time together would be filled with God's Holy Spirit! Thank you for your prayers!
