Our Confirmation Candidates are back from their retreat!
When preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, our teens often struggle with peer pressure, busy schedules, and life’s many demands. It is hard to find time for their faith when their lives are full of sports, homework and friends. Honoring the responsibility of preparing for the Sacrament to the best of our ability and to respond as Disciples of Christ, last weekend 99 teens from IC Church, St. Boniface and St. Michael’s attended the Confirmation Retreat at Dwight Mission in Vian, OK.
During their retreat, they had the opportunity to reflect on the multiple gifts God has given them and how they can use them to the service of others. Many lives were impacted and we fully expect to see some amazing Disciples spring up in the future.

New Adult Bible Study: 1st Corinthians
The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth are in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist. Mondays at 6:00pm in the Bishops Room Study Begins on Monday, April 20th
