Confirmation - Music


Youtube Playlist 


  1. Historical Music - Charles Wesley 

    1. (4:11) 

    2. Important because it connects us with our past - Communion of the Saints. However, I believe that God is still calling us today! His presence is still around! And there are people who are writing new music for God. All sorts of people, not just white men - which a lot of the songs in our hymnal are by white men! But, people of color and women!
