Five young people of Martin Luther Lutheran Church affirmed the vows made at their own baptisms by their parents and sponsors.  Confirming their faith were Lauren Behrends, Ayla Eggers, Addison Grotiran, Chase Harrifeld, and Layla Miller.   The confirmands have been instructed by Pastor Ken Tubbesing and the curriculum has included Holy Scripture, the Sacraments, Luther’s Small Catechism, and the Life of Luther.


Pastor Ken Tubbesing was the officiant of the Rite of Confirmation during the Palm Sunday Worship Service on March 24, 2024.

Martin Luther Church joins with all their family in prayer that their faith in Jesus Christ may continue to grow and that that each will always be able to say that Jesus Christ is my LORD.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. ~  Numbers 6:24-26
