Because Lutherans love (historic) group photos: here is an archived photo of Emanuel's 1961 Confirmation Class. There is a lot to absorb in this image: the giant bell thing (?), dapper young men, quaffed young women, the sheer number of youth (!). Fifty years ago these teens were loved and guided during their catechism classes by their pastors and families. They were given solid foundations for living out their Christian Faith. Our 2021 Confirmation Class is equally blessed and we are excited to celebrate with them this Sunday! We are better together.
