Donald Hayn, interim pastor; and Robert Edward Brooks. The candidates are wearing individual confirmation stoles made by Arlene Christman. Their baptismal shells were hand stitched by Brenda Benner. Confirmation marks the completion of the congregation's program of confirmation ministry, a period of instruction in the Christian faith as confessed in the teachings of the Lutheran Church. Those who completed this program were made members of the Church of Baptism.
