Three young people, with the help of their mentors, celebrated the completion of their confirmation journeys by joining the church on April 27th. All three have attended this church since they were small children and have recently, as teens, become more active in the fellowship. In a first for the United Methodist Church of Chugiak, all three young people belong to the same family, Jason, Nathaniel and Julia Woodring.
Thanks to Dan Lien, David Bassett and Holly Lindsay, the three young people had companions on the journey, people of whom to ask questions, express concerns and with whom to seek answers. As their mentors will attest, the teens were not the only ones to dig deeper into their faith.
