New Members of Kremenets ULC Congregation

“They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching
and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread
and to prayer” (Acts 2:42)

A while ago one happy event took place in ULC Congregation of Lord’s Cross – two young people became confirmed and joined to the society of believers. Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God” (Romans 5:1-2).
A long time ago Valeria and Suzanna started to attend ULC Sunday school; they have always been the participants of Vacation Bible School conducted by American volunteers. It is interesting that Valeria was the first baby saved through ICF “Gift of Life”, she was baptised 15 years ago by a Lutheran Pastor. Both girls like singing that’s why they participate in each concert conducted at ULC. About two years ago Valeria and Suzanna asked permission to sing in the church choir. From that time their sonorous voices sound at each Sunday service glorifying God. The girls studied Catechism very deeply. They wanted to become confirmed members of congregation. At the very beginning confirmation was due for the children as well as adults right after their baptism. Within time confirmation was separated from baptism. Pastor prepared Valeria and Suzanna to confirmation really well.
During a long period of time they have been studying Catechism, attending special classes and sharing experience. On Sunday church service all the Christians of ULC prayed for Valeria and Suzanna and their confirmation. Afterwards young ladies solemnly joined Lord’s Cross congregation. May Valeria and Suzanna hear the message of St. Apostle Paul “God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful” (Corinthians 1:9)
