Confirmation Sunday 2018

Confirmation Class 2018

We celebrate the faith commitment of two of our MLLC youth.  Miles Tinker and Janette Weidemann affirmed their baptism on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at MLLC.  We are thankful for the commitment of the students, parents, congregation, and teachers involved in the Confirmation Class Ministry of MLLC.  We share this ministry with 4 other congregations:  Waldeck Lutheran Church, Bethlehem Lutheran Church – Round Top, St. Paul Lutheran – Shelby, and Greenvine Emmanuel Lutheran – Burton.  The pastoral leaders of each congregation are the teachers.  The classes in the group have been held at MLLC for many years now.  In recent years the classes have been held in the new Mission & Ministry Building of MLLC.
