Join Our Church

new members 2010

The Congregational Church of New Canaan welcomes new members into the congregation three times each year at the 9:30am service. New Member Sundays are the first Sundays of February, May, and October of each year.  The next New Members Sunday will be on October 5, 2014.

To become a new member, the Deacons of the Church require attendance at two orientation meetings in preparation for membership. The first meeting is held on the Sunday afternoon the week preceding a New Member Sunday, from 4:00 to 5:30pm and is an educational meeting. It provides an opportunity to meet our ministers and Church leadership to learn about the history and organization of our Church.

The second meeting is held on the Saturday morning preceding a new member Sunday, from 9:00 to 10:30am. There is an opportunity to talk with the deacons and ministers on a more informal basis as we share a little of our faith journeys with each other. Both events take place in the Church Parlor. Dress is casual and childcare can be arranged for the meetings.

Please call the church office at (203)966-2651, or Membership Committee Chair Joellen Ford at (203)966-8783, if you are interested in obtaining more information about church membership. If you would like to meet with one of our ministers privately to answer any of your questions about this church or about the United Church of Christ please contact the church office to set up an appointment.
