It was with great anticipation that the Sunday School children of Umbilo Congregation in Durban

awaited their closing of the year divine service with Apostle Page on 2 December 2018.

The Apostle used a Bible word from Romans 12:21. The children took home a message that they will overcome evil using: prayer, obedience to the commandments and love.

Following this, the confirmands had their valedictory. They had been looking forward to this moment. The Sunday School children bid them farewell with a beautiful portrayal of the “Fruit of the Spirit”. One by one the beauty of the fruit was described. A wonderful word of encouragement was given by a parent and a minister. Apostle Page then spoke a final word of encouragement to the confirmands and presented each one with a Valedictorian Certificate.

In conclusion, the new class of final confirmands was presented to the audience and their rector presented them with their “Confirmand” badge.
