SMART Recovery Meeting

SMART Recovery® is a modern, science-based, addiction recovery support group, where participants learn self-empowering techniques to aid their recovery. No matter what your addiction, SMART Recovery tools and techniques can help you overcome the behavior. SMART Recovery uses tools based on scientifically proven methods for addiction recovery such as Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques.

The 4-point program offers tools and techniques for:
1 ~ Building and Maintaining Motivation
2 ~ Coping with Urges
3 ~ Managing Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors
4 ~ Living a Balanced Life

SMART Recovery advocates choice, so that those seeking recovery can choose what works best for them from a variety of options. The SMART Recovery goal is for you to achieve a healthy, positive and balanced lifestyle and to "graduate" when you feel your addictive behavior is behind you, not to remain a life-long participant in the program.

See http://smartrecoveryct.org for more information.

Confirmation Class

January marks the beginning of our formal Confirmation education. We will meet every Tuesday evening from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm in the Church Parlor beginning Tuesday January 8th. Each class will be designed around the Confirmation curriculum that is found in the Confirmation and Mentor booklets which will be passed out on the 8th. These classes are meant to give added education to the chapters and are not meant to replace Confirmand/ Mentor time. Meeting with one’s Mentor or Confirmand is very important in this special journey.

The Confirmation Class has already begun their worship participation as 2 confirmands each Sunday help out with ushering. Confirmands are encouraged to attend worship as often as possible (like every Sunday) and from time to time a couple will be asked to help out Reverend Pitman with worship leadership; all of this leading up to their leadership of our Mother’s Day worship service this year. Confirmands and Mentors will be assigned to help in the Sunday School as well.

This month we will discuss the Bible, Communion and we will talk about how our church makes decisions. The Confirmation Class is encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting on the 27th of January with their families and see the church in action. 

If you are going to be absent from a class, please contact Mr. Pitman through the Church Office (203-264-8807), or by calling 203-264-7445 or 203-910-5879.

SMART Recovery Meeting

SMART Recovery® is a modern, science-based, addiction recovery support group, where participants learn self-empowering techniques to aid their recovery. No matter what your addiction, SMART Recovery tools and techniques can help you overcome the behavior. SMART Recovery uses tools based on scientifically proven methods for addiction recovery such as Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques.

The 4-point program offers tools and techniques for:
1 ~ Building and Maintaining Motivation
2 ~ Coping with Urges
3 ~ Managing Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors
4 ~ Living a Balanced Life

SMART Recovery advocates choice, so that those seeking recovery can choose what works best for them from a variety of options. The SMART Recovery goal is for you to achieve a healthy, positive and balanced lifestyle and to "graduate" when you feel your addictive behavior is behind you, not to remain a life-long participant in the program.
