Men of the church meet for monthly discussion and spiritual check in; for a Men’s Breakfast; and for Men’s Quarterly outings and social times.

The men of the church host our annual Souper Bowl Sunday Luncheon, held on Super Bowl Sunday, benefitting local food pantries.
Confirmation is the time when 7th and 8th graders prepare to affirm their baptismal vows as members of the congregation. Our two-year program leads them through a review of Bible, church history and theology of the United Church of Christ.
