May 8 | Confirmation for Everyone (Week 2): What Makes the Church the Church?

May 3, 2022 | Worship

You are invited into this worship experience for the week of Sunday, May 8.

When young people are in their middle and high school years, they go through something we call Confirmation. Other traditions might call it catechism or some other form of discipleship or intentional learning, but the point of this experience is to teach young people about some of the core principles of Christianity. We trust that, throughout life, people are on a discipleship journey that builds on the foundations of Confirmation. And while that may be the case, it is infrequent that we revisit those foundational pieces as a set apart consideration in worship. This Easter series will give us a lens to reconnect with the lessons of Confirmation, believing that we might continue our journey of faith together.

From Matthew 16:13-20
The church is more than one person. When Jesus tells Peter that he is the rock upon which the church will be built, he doesn’t mean that all of a sudden all community will be centered on Peter and Peter alone. There are a couple of pieces in this story that illuminate why we do church. The first is Peter’s testimony — sharing the truth of the divinity of Christ. This is at the core of what the church does, sharing Christ in every word and action. The other important piece is Peter’s imperfection. While he is a great witness to Christ in this moment, there will be other moments where he will fail, often in a grandiose way. The church is the body of Christ for the world, but she is not perfect. Instead, she is made perfect by the love of God that finds its way even in the fractured spaces to create wholeness and peace.
