New Member Class
This class, which is offered throughout the year, is open to anyone wanting to learn the history of the United Church of Christ and our congregation and is a requirement for those who wish to become members.
This class is offered over two years meeting during the academic school year once a month of a weekend evening. Field trips and retreats are offered during the two year commitment. Interested parents, middle and high school age students and adult mentors Saturday, July 24 2021 at 6 p.m. Embrace UCC This year, our congregation will be using a confirmation program for youth called Confirm not Conform, or CnC. The classes are a two-year commitment. We will meet monthly during the school year. We may add some field trips and retreats as they become available. Confirm not Conform is focused on helping young people ask tough questions and search out the answers. Through innovative sessions, field trips, mentor relationships, and the challenge to do a whole lot more than just learn a few facts, CnC lets youth take real responsibility for understanding their faith and its power. When they do—when they see the church and faith as something that truly belongs to them—it builds a bond that lasts. At the end of the class, as a sign of their ability to take charge of their own spiritual life, each youth chooses whether or not to be confirmed. All participants, whatever their decision, are honored in a special service dedicated to their work, exploration, and discoveries. At the meeting on Saturday July 24, you can decide whether you are ready to begin the journey
