Confirmation Orientation Meeting

We will be holding a Confirmation Class this year for any young man or woman in the 8th grade. The class is a yearlong process beginning with an Orientation Meeting on Sunday, September 23 from 4 to 5:30 pm in the Church Sanctuary. 

During the first week in September, those young people that we know are in the 8th grade will receive a letter outlining the program and the requirements. If you do not receive a letter and you are in 8th grade and would like to participate in the class, please contact the Church Office and a letter will be sent to you. 

If you already know that you are going to be a part of the class, now would be a good time to select a Mentor. A Mentor is a member of The United Church of Christ, Southbury who will meet with you throughout the year, using a workbook which you will be given, and will be another person with whom you can discuss thoughts and questions you may have during the year. Once you have chosen a Mentor and they have accepted, please contact the Church Office (203-264-8807) and let us know so that we can invite them to Orientation Meeting. 

The Service of Confirmation will take place this year on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 2 pm. Other highlights include a trip to Zion Baptist Church in Waterbury in the early spring, a Seder Meal with Rabbi Polokoff; as well as the making of individual crosses for each class member. These dates and events will be finalized in the next couple of weeks and a calendar will be distributed at the Orientation Meeting. 

This year the class will be lead by Reverend Pitman with help from the Board of Deacons and members of the congregation.
