This Week September 26, 2018

Dear Folks,

 

What crazy weather!  Stay dry and safe!

 

This Sunday, September 30, is the Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost.  The scripture is James 5:13-20.  The sermon is “It Takes A Village”.

 

Following worship, there will be a meeting of potential confirmands and their parents/guardians in the library.  Diaconate and Christian Education will also be meeting.

 

Our “Season of Generosity” starts on October 7.  We will be celebrating Holy Communion.

 

Our next LEO (Let’s Eat Out) will be Sunday, October 7, following worship and coffee hour, at Longhorn Steakhouse on Bridgeport Ave.  Please sign up in the Alcove.

 

Sign-up sheets are in the Alcove for our two upcoming training events: Tuesday, October 16 at 6:30 is the Narcan Training.  This event is free of cost.  Saturday, October 20 is the AED/CPR training at Noon. This event is $25, $30 if you want a book.  Both of these trainings are very important, so please make every effort to attend. We do need a minimum number of people for each training, so it is important that you sign up if you want to attend.  Thank you!

 

Please take note of the poster in the Alcove with suggested items for the Valley Food Bank bin in Fellowship Hall. Of course, all items are gratefully accepted, but the Missions Committee put together a list that attempts to target items that may be needed more during certain seasons or months. The need is great, so please be generous!

 

The Huntington Center Nursery School is holding an Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough & Lyman Orchard Crisps fundraiser! Orders will begin October 5th – 19th. Delivery will be November 2nd.  See any Nursery School Committee member or the office for order envelopes and more information and support our nursery school.

 

Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services invites all to join for a candlelight vigil honoring victims and supporting survivors of domestic violence. Tuesday, Oct. 9th 6 pm on the Huntington Green. In the event of rain, the vigil will be held in our Fellowship Hall.

 

Let us pray.  O God, no matter how gray the skies or how wounded our hearts, help us to always see and feel the promise of your eternal love and care.  Amen.

 

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
