Peaks Postings, February 14, 2017 Page 8 8 Webinar Offered: Confirmation: Equipping children, parents and congregations for the journey of faith Tuesday, Mar. 28 at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT) Should confirmation be an introduction to the Christian faith and life for young people, or a moment when their faith is transformed into something new? This webinar will examine our expectations for confirmation classes and why it feels like more and more students are coming to this pivotal year unprepared to have the experience we want them to have. Together we will look at specific examples of how foundational biblical stories, liturgies or congregational traditions can be expanded into confirmation conversations. Presented by Rebecca Kirkpatrick Presbyterian Meeting: This Saturday at First Presbyterian Church, Lynchburg One of our displays at this meeting will be Nancy Dawson’s library. Since she is retiring, Nancy is bringing quite a few of her books to give away. (Great for new ministers.) All she is asking is that you make a donation to Two Cents a Meal for taking a book.
