  1. I used to attend Christ Lutheran when I was younger. I am now 54 years old. I confirmed in 1973. I still see names of members that confirmed in that year. Would there be a list of confirmands in the church files from that year. I have a list of 22 names that I can remember, but I was wondering if there were more. My name is Valerie Marvin. One of the confirmands was Bruce Stephens whom I have reconnected with and we are now in a relationship. We talk about us growing up and how both of our families were members of Christ Lutheran. We graduated together (of course) from Paramus High School in 1978. We were just wondering if there were any pictures or a list of names in the church archives that would be available.

    Thanking you in advance for any help.

    In Gods Grace,
    Valerie Marvin
