The moment of standing up to announce your faith is a big step in the journey of the believer. But no one really manages to do this alone. It is always an expression of community that anyone comes to a point in their life when they can stand and give witness to the hope that is beginning to dwell within them. May 17th this year was a great celebration of faith with our young people who stood to affirm their faith. In response, the community gathers around to lay on hands of prayer and blessings, asking the Holy Spirit to guard and guide these lives. We give thanks for these young lights of faith; Hannah Cari Carlsen, Landon Christopher Kelln, Kristina Marie Kowalik, Matthew Robert Kowalik, Samantha Lynn Kowalik.
