Confirmation/Membership.

This Sunday (17th) is our membership service. Or should that be confirmation service? Actually ,both. The first part of the service uses words very similar to those in the baptism service but here the person takes responsibility for themselves and confirms the baptism vows made by their parents when they were younger. They are not claiming to have "arrived" or to have everything worked out but they claim God's promises made to us through Jesus and they promise to continue their journey with him.

The second part is Membership where we welcome them as members of our church family at Yarm, as members of the woldwide Methodist church and of the Christian Church in general with all its privileges and responsibilies. In the light of God's grace we pray that they will be filled with the Holy Spirit that they may continue to walk in faith and hope.

Please come and join us -
