Over two Sundays in July, 26 young adults in the ELCJHL were confirmed into the church, with 18 being confirmed at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Reformation in Beit Jala and 8 confirmed at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hope in Ramallah.
Each service was unique to the congregation. In Beit Jala, the congregation was treated to music by the church’s choir, a choir that included two of the confirmads. In Ramallah, the lessons and Gospel were conveyed using Sign Language by one of our confirmads, Majdi Mreibe and by Rev. Janne Rissane.
Congratulations to all of our confirmads. We rejoice with you and your families.
The English and Arabic services will join together for their confirmation service on August 11th, 2013, at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Ascension on the Mount of Olives.
