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.
