HCCUCC On-Site Worship and Activities Canceled
As a community of faith, Huntington Congregational Church United Church of Christ, enjoys its time together in worship, in work, in play, and in prayer. But safety and health are paramount. So, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart that I inform you that all public gatherings and activities, including on-site worship on March 15 and 22 are canceled immediately. If circumstances allow, we will resume on-site worship and activities on March 29.
This decision is in keeping with the recommendation of the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ as well as in conjunction with the Shelton Clergy Association.
In lieu of on-site worship, I will plan to stream live worship on Facebook, Sunday mornings at 9:30 A.M., our usual service time. It will be a simple service of scripture, reflection, prayer, and meditation. The Facebook page is Huntington Congregational Church United Church of Christ, easy to remember!
I will also offer periodic ZOOM meetings for us to interact and check in on each other or to conduct needed business. I will send out more information on those as they come about.
On a very practical note, I would ask that you please keep up your offerings to the church during this time. Even when we are not physically together, we still have bills to pay and commitments to keep. You may send in your offering by mail or visit our website: www.huntingtonucc.org and make an on-line donation. You can also download the giving app: GIVEPLUS Mobile. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
In this uncertain and frightening time, it is imperative that we keep in contact with each other, with family, with friends, and with neighbors. If you need any assistance, please contact me and I will try to help as much as I can. If you are willing to be an on-call help, please let me know as well.
We are a people of faith and a people of hope. Keep patience, kindness, understanding, and love first in our hearts. Hold each other in prayer. We know that we are not alone but are held by God who loves us more than we can ever imagine.
As always, you are in my prayers and in my heart.
In Christ’s love,
