“Will you who sponsor these candidates
support and encourage them in their Christian life?”

“Will you nurture one another in the Christian faith and life and
include these persons now before you in your care?”

Most likely, you have heard those words more than you can count. They are important words. Two questions from our baptismal covenant remind us that it is not just the job of the preacher or pastor or youth minister to care for youth.

It’s all our responsibility.
