Please join the confirmation class for the final activity of the Kindness Campaign!


On Sunday, October 21, the confirmation group will host two activities:
  • From 9-10am in the Great Hall we will provide supplies and inspiration to decorate rocks with kind words. Dry, decorated rocks can be picked up after the service so that they can be placed in a location that will bring a smile to others.
  • After the 10 o'clock service we will distribute chalk to be used to decorate sidewalks with kind and inspirational words. Members of the confirmation group will lead groups to local ares to decorate, but bags of chalk may also be taken to decorate in other locations.
