Huntington Congregational Church

United Church of Christ

This Week November 23, 2021

Dear Folks,

May you have a blessed and gratitude-filled Thanksgiving.  I give thanks for you!

This coming Sunday, November 28, is the First Sunday in Advent.  The scripture is Luke 21:25-36.  The sermon is “Be Alert”.  The service is in-person and will be live-streamed on Facebook.

There will be an in-person Congregation Meeting for all members of the Huntington Congregational Church UCC immediately following worship service on Sunday, December 5, 2021 for the purpose of presenting the proposed budget for the 2022 fiscal year.

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 of Abundance, we thank you and praise you for all you are and all you have given and done for us.  May our thanks and praise go beyond mere worlds and translate into actions of generosity and kindness.  Amen.

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
