This Week November 16, 2021

Dear Folks,

Enjoy the beautiful day!

This weekend is the Pumpkin & Holly Fair.  Come, bring all your family and friends!  Doors will open on Friday at 5:30 P.M. and close at 8 P.M.; Saturday, door will open at 9:30 A.M. and close at 2:30 P.M.  Let’s start the holiday season out right!

This Sunday, November 21, is the Reign of Christ.  We will also be celebrating Thanksgiving.  The scripture is Isaiah 12:2-6, the sermon is “Give Thanks”.  The service will be lived-streamed on Facebook.

Following service, there will be a meeting for all those who are interested in playing bells for Christmas.

Also after the service, the Deacons will be starting to decorate for the Advent/Christmas season.  Any help would be appreciated!

The Valley Food Bank at Spooner House is running low on food. Specifically needed items are:  shelf stable milk and powdered milk, pancake mix and syrup, peanut butter and jelly, canned fruit and applesauce, garbanzo and navy beans, canned tuna and chicken, oatmeal and other cereals, and pasta sauce.  There will be a box in the Alcove and also the “wishing well” in Fellowship Hall for your donations.  Please be generous!

Once again, Women’s Fellowship is collecting items to make bags to be given out to homeless individuals. Last year our church members took bags and handed them out when they came across someone in need. It was a successful ministry for us and certainly a necessary one as so many are without a home. With winter coming, we are again collecting items. Please take a sheet from the table in the alcove to see what items you can donate. Thank you!

Please continue to support HCCUCC with your contributions.  Now more than ever, our mission of being the beacon of love and light on the Huntington Green and beyond is vital. Contributions sent in by mail are welcome. Please consider donating at our website, Electronic Fund Transfer giving is also available. Please email the church, if you would like a form to set that up. Any way you give is a blessing and is greatly appreciated.

Let us pray.  O God, as we enter the busy-ness of the holidays, help us to never forget what is at the heart of the season:  Divine Love.  Amen.

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
