May 1st -22nd: “THE CONFIRMATION QUESTIONS”
The Eden Prairie UMC Confirmation Class is a window to what our church will be in a generation. What are the questions they are asking? Asking and being willing to take direction is a very important attribute for being a servant.
May 1 – “Was Jesus a Good Carpenter?” (Communion Sunday)
Scripture: Mark 6:1-6
Youth want to know how Jesus was human like us. What might have been the things he enjoyed, what contributions to his family did he make?
May 8 – “What Does the Lord’s Prayer Have to Do With My Life?” (Mother’s Day)
Scripture: Matt 6:5-15; Luke 11:1-4
For over half the year we studied the Lord’s Prayer. What are some of the things that stuck with our youth? They tell me two thing: “There is nothing you can do to make God love you less” and “God is a Loving Parent”.
May 15 – “What Does That Thing on the Wall Mean?” (Family Communion/Pentecost)
Scripture: Matt. 18:19-20, Acts 2: 1-18, 21
The room where we meet has a picture with the words from Matthew 18: “Where two or three are gathered, there I am with them also.” This refers to the question of how is Jesus present with us.
May 22 – “Does God Love the Worst of Us?” (Confirmation Sunday)
Scripture: Matt. 20:1-16; Psalm 136
This question in one form or another appeared in more than half of the responses: “Does God love evil people?” was one form. Could this be asking, “Does God always love me?”
