This Week January 2, 2019
Happy New Year! May 2019 be filled with hope, peace, joy, and love!
My deepest thanks to you all for the gifts, cards, and well-wishes during this Christmas Season. I am truly blessed to be your pastor!
This Sunday, January 6, is Epiphany. The scripture is Matthew 2:1-12. The sermon is “Shine”. We will be celebrating Holy Communion. Come start the new year with this blessing!
We will also be taking the Emergency Assistance Fund (EAF) 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 in supporting this outreach effort.
Following the service on Sunday, we will be de-decorating the sanctuary. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It’s not too late to submit your 2019 Pledge Card. Cards can be found on the shelf at the alcove entrance to the Sanctuary. If you have not returned your pledge card, please do so as soon as possible.
THE 295th ANNUAL MEETING OF THE HUNTINGTON CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, UCC WILL BE HELD IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE MORNING WORSHIP SERVICE ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 20, 2019 FOR THE PURPOSE OF ELECTING OFFICERS, ACCEPTING THE 2019 BUDGET, AND ANY OTHER BUSINESS THAT PROPERLY COMES BEFORE THE MEETING. CHILD CARE WILL BE PROVIDED. SNOWDATE: THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY, JANUARY 27, 2019.
Let us pray. O God, as another new year dawns, may you continue to walk with us on our journey through this life. May we feel your presence upon us as we seek to serve you faithfully now and always. Amen.
In Christ’s love,
