This Week June 26, 2018

Dear Folks,

 

This coming Sunday, July 1, is the Sixth Sunday in Pentecost.  We will have a patriotic hymn sing preceding worship.  The scripture is Mark 5:21-43.  The sermon is “Reaching Out”.  We will be celebrating Holy Communion.

 

Also on Sunday, we will be receiving the Emergency Assistance Fund offering. The Mission Committee has developed the Emergency Assistance Fund to assist people within the Shelton community and/or our church community who have an urgent, unexpected need for financial assistance. EAF offering envelopes (yellow) will be available in the pews. Thank you for your generosity!

 

6th Annual Bruce E. Hartel Antique Car Show will be on Sunday, August 26.  During the summer, we are collecting donations of water and soda that can be left in Fellowship Hall marked with a “Car Show” note.  Food and beverage proceeds will benefit HCCUCC’s General Operating Fund. All other proceeds will benefit the Organ Fund and the American Cancer Society.  If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with the car show, please contact Robin Hartel.

 

Summer Concerts on the Green continue on Wednesdays through August 29, except July 4! The Men’s Group will sell hot dogs in our parking lot. All men are encouraged to come and help. Our Vitality Team will continue to hand out free water and hold a free gift card give away during this time. If anyone would like to help out, you are more than welcome to come. We also appreciate donations of water and/or a $25 gift card to a local store or eating place.  We need only four more gift cards!  Thank you to all who have donated, who will donate, and who help out!

 

Let us pray. O God, in spite of uncertain times, we know that your love and care is ever-present and everlasting.  May you fill our hearts with strength, hope, and courage, but most of all, love.  Amen.

 

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
