Confirmation is that time in a young person’s faith journey where they are invited to reflect on and commit more deeply to their journey with God and the church. Over a period of a year, young persons will meet with Pastor Mike and a designated Adult Mentor to talk about the things they believe and practice about their lives, which will lead to an opportunity to be confirmed and unite with the church in professing membership next October.
Any youth in 8th grade and up are welcome and invited to meet with Pastor Mike on Sunday, October 28th at 5 p.m. He will talk about what Confirmation is and what you will need to do to be part of the process here at Butler UMC.
Parents who would like to know more are invited to contact Pastor Mike at the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org / 973-838-2026).

Don’t miss your chance to bring home some special treats for Thanksgiving. The Naomi Circle will host their annual bake sale during coffee hour, featuring a large selection of delicious treats. Proceeds from the sale will help fund the funeral luncheons provided by the circle.
A Month of Sundays for November…
During the month of November we will be sharing a theme of Gratitude for God’s gifts and the gifts we share with each other every day.
November 4th : ALL SAINTS SUNDAY – Communion and remembering those who have gone before us and giving thanks for everything their lives have meant to us.
November 11th : A DAY OF GRATITUDE – Gratitude is a God-given and powerful way to look at life and to live.
November 18th : A BI-LINGUAL SERVICE OF THANKSGIVING followed by fellowship time after.
November 25th : WE PREPARE FOR ADVENT by placing decorations in the sanctuary as descriptions of their meaning and symbolism are shared.
It is a great month to slow down a little before a busy season and to be lifted up by God’s power.
