Confirmation Part 2

The Church just purchased new Hymnals and the girls surprised their Sunday School teacher, Mary Zach, with a Hymnal they had purchased in her honor.

As you can imagine, Mary was very touched as they all hold a very special place in her heart. Mary has been their Sunday School teacher since they were just wee little ones, Grace being her granddaughter as well.

We all enjoyed a piece of this very pretty cake along with some ice cream.

The tables were dressed with pink tablecloths and adorned with these gorgeous centerpieces done by Mary Zach. She mentioned the glassware belonged to her husband’s mother, Grace.  What a special addition to a special day!

The Percival Church will continue to pray for and support Karlee, Macey, Grace and Skylar in their continual journey of faith.

Confirmation Part 1

*Due to high picture volume, this post will be done in 2 parts.*

Today we had four candidates come forward, to acknowledge and affirm their faith in Jesus Christ.

-Karlee Graham, Macey Graham, Grace Zach and Skyler Pritchett

Pastor Blaine- “As members of the Percival Church family, each of us here today come from different faith journeys and experiences.  We gather to give witness and our full support to Karlee, Macey, Grace and Skylar.  Through prayer, teaching, studying, and faith they have been led by the Holy Spirit to declare their own personal decision to follow Jesus Christ, and to enter into the life of the church.  Their desire is to serve Him, follow Him and to live unto Him using the gifts which the Holy Spirit has bestowed.”

A slide show was presented, created by Mary Zach, filled with the many memories of past Christmas programs and church events.

Pastor Blaine had questions for the candidates and Board President Jan Zach had questions for the congregation.
