Bishop Ilgenfritz visited us today in order to Confirm 9 people from our congregation. Following the service we enjoyed a potluck dinner and some fellowship with the Bishop.
From left to right we have:
Top row: Mr. and Mrs. Follman, and Fr. Bob. Middle row: Susanna Dunlap, Jonathan Dunlap, Bp. Ilgenfritz, Josiah Follman, Samuel Lemmon and Lauren Follman. Front row: Conrad Martin and Maggie Hussey.
Defend, O Lord, these thy Children with thy heavenly grace; that they may continue thine forever; and daily increase in thy Holy Spirit more and more, until they come into thy everlasting kingdom. Amen.
