On Sunday, August 9, 2020, St. George’s Church in Koltushi celebrated the confirmation of young people from different Church of Ingria congregations!
Starting on July 30, the confirmation training gathered young men and ladies from Cheboksary, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Saransk (Velmema Church), St. Petersburg (St. Anne’s and St. Mary’s), Toksovo, Voronezh, and Vyborg.
On August 7, course student Aleksandr Vorobtsov was baptized. Eleven people were confirmed, one church member will be confirmed in his congregation, and four had been confirmed in the past, but attended the course once again.
We would like to congratulate the confirmands from all our heart and wish them God’s blessings as they continue following Christ! Carry on the light, knowledge, and faith you have received to your congregations and around the world in the years to come!
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20, ESV)
