This Week December 7, 2021

Dear Folks,

Blessings as we continue our journey through the Advent season.

This Thursday is my Prayer Day.  If you have any joys or concerns you would like me to lift up to God, please let me know.

This Sunday, December 12, is the Third Sunday in Advent.  We will light the Joy candle. The scripture is Luke 1:39-55. The sermon is “Blessed”.

The Longest Night Service will be on Tuesday, December 21 at 6:30 P.M. This service will be in-person and live-streamed on Facebook.

Christmas Eve Service will be at 4 P.M., Friday, December 24. This service will be in-person and live-streamed on Facebook.

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 FH 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, www.huntingtonucc.org. Electronic Fund Transfer giving is also available. Please email the church, hcc@snet.net 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 Holy God of hope and peace, may you continue to walk with us through this Advent season and always. Through this journey, May you transform us into more Christ-like people. Amen.

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
