Confirmation "graduates" will be recognized on Easter Sunday.
Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. Then Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if you wish, I will make three dwellings here, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” While he was still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud a voice said, “This is my Son, the Beloved; with him I am well pleased; listen to him!” When the disciples heard this, they fell to the ground and were overcome by fear. But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Get up and do not be afraid.” And when they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus himself alone.
As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, “Tell no one about the vision until after the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”

To learn more about The Arbor School of Central Florida, please visit their website:
TUMC is incredibly blessed to announce its partnership with the welcomed addition of The Arbor School of Central Florida to our campus full-time.
Since 2002, Arbor School has provided a leading-edge, academically sound and therapeutically-based learning approach for special needs students.
The most important thing any one person can do to improve the lives of children with autism or other special needs is to accept them for who they are and to celebrate their talents.
The culture of understanding and acceptance at The Arbor School helps to foster each child’s self-esteem, allowing them to truly shine. In this atmosphere, children know that they are safe, cared for, and understood, which in turn provides confidence to increase academically, improve socially, learn to self-advocate, and develop leadership skills.
