ORUCC Youth 11/19 (and before!)

Hello friends!

This Sunday 11/19 we have Sunday School continuing with Echo the Story at 9:00; Kristin Muckian and Susan Watson are on board for guiding this conversation. TRU Function will practice from 10:00-12:00. 
TOMORROW! Friday 11/17: 5:30-7:30 “Friendsgiving” Party at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church– Our youth (6th-high school) are invited to get to know other youth at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church (6205 University Ave, Madison, WI 53705) at a potluck “Friendsgiving” party. We are looking to do some combined youth programming with St. Dunstan's and other progressive Christian churches in the future; this is one step toward this exciting collaboration! 
Mark your calendars for other upcoming events:
January 12-14  All Church Retreat at Daycholah Center: We are excited to continue this wonderful tradition again this year. More details coming soon about registration for this all-ages event. 
Confirmation! For youth in 8th-9th grade, Confirmation will be offered this spring. We are intending to have confirmation held for 8 weeks on Sundays from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The dates will be March 10, 17, April 7, 14, 21, 28, May 5, 12, with the Confirmation service on May 19th (Pentecost). Families with youth eligible for confirmation, look for an email from Pastor Kate with more details the week after Thanksgiving.
