Five youth confirmed their faith through Affirmation of Baptism. The Rite of Confirmation took place at Good Shepherd’s 11:00 am worship service on Pentecost Sunday, May 20th.
The five youth completed three years of confirmation instruction as part of Good Shepherd’s Faith Formation programs. The instruction builds a deeper understanding of Christian faith and Lutheran beliefs so they can affirm their desire to continue in the faith they began when baptized as young children. Upon Confirmation their faith journey continues as adult members of Good Shepherd and the Christian community.
Pictured with Pastors Peter Kuritz and Janell Wigen are Brook, Logan, Samantha, Colin, and Summer who confirmed their faith.

Once again Good Shepherd took to the streets of downtown Wilkes Barre with our Palm Sunday procession. Our congregation braved cold and snow to deliver the message of Christ’s triumphant ride into Jerusalem. The cross led the procession followed by children riding on a miniature horse and everyone singing while carrying palms. The procession stopped several times to reflect on Bible passages.

A new sign with our church name and information was added to the front of our church above the prayer chalkboard. A special thank you to the Martin’s for making the new sign possible.
