This Week December 15, 2020
Looks like we have snow storm coming! Please stay safe and warm.
At the end of this year, we say good bye to our Minister of Music, James Bruni, as he continues his journey. We are grateful for the time he shared with us. We wish him, Lorraine, and his family all God’s blessings!
This Sunday, December 20, is the Fourth Sunday in Advent. The scripture is Isaiah 7:10-15. The sermon is “Love & Choice”.
Due to the rise in COVID numbers and the expected surge after Christmas, this will be the final Sunday worship service until February 21. The Church Council will reevaluate at the time progresses. Please reserve your seat for Sunday worship by emailing the office at email@example.com by Thursday. If you normally attend and are not planning to, please also notify the office. Please remember not to congregate in the Alcove before or after the service. It’s up to all of us to keep each other safe!
The service will be live-streamed on Facebook. It will also be posted on Facebook and YouTube later.
Our Longest Night Service will be held on Monday, December 21 at 6:30 P.M. We will be in person and live-streamed on Facebook. If you plan on being in person, please reserve your seat by Friday, December 18 by emailing Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christmas Eve Lessons and Carols will be live-streamed on Facebook at 4 P.M.
Dependent on the weather, we are planning on an outdoor informal Christmas Eve service at 8:30 P.M. in the back parking lot at HCCUCC. It will be a drive-in service and folks will stay in their cars with the windows open, so bundle up. Please bring a battery candle, a small flashlight or a cell phone flashlight app.
If you have not returned your Faith Promise/Pledge card yet, please do so ASAP. Thank to you all who have already! Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Let us pray. O God of life, light, and love. May the flame of the Advent candles ignite in our hearts the blessings of Christ and Christ’s hope, peace, joy, and love. Amen.
In Christ’s love,
