This service was designed and led by the 2019-20 FPCP 8th Grade Confirmation Class. Assisted by leaders Doug & Julie Heasley and Rev. Mark Hovermale, the Confirmation students shared what they have learned, both in class and during their weekend retreat. Rev. Mark, who shared the message with the students and the congregation, talked about how we need to awaken our minds, transforming our lives, and renewing our spirits so that we may develop a mind of Christ and we can move beyond worrying about earthly things to setting our minds on things above. We can do this by spending time reading God’s word (the Bible), talking to God (praying) and getting connected with a community of believers (get involved in church and its programs). Through this, we can accept the challenge to have our minds transformed, renewed and awakened.
Based on Romans 12:1-2, 1 Corinthians 2:15-16 and Colossians 3:2.
