United Church of Christ

This Week January 4, 2022

Dear Folks,

As we enter this new year, may we hold onto the Spirit of Christmas: hope, peace, joy, and especially love.

This Sunday, January 9, is the Baptism of Christ.  We will be virtual only, no in-person worship.  The scripture is Luke 3:15-17, 21-22.  The sermon is “What’s in That Water?”  I will send out the bulletin and the Facebook link on Friday.

The Valley Food Bank at Spooner House is in need of these items: 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 is a box in the Alcove and also the “wishing well” in Fellowship Hall for your donations.  Please be generous!

Homeless Bags Update: Thank you to all who have donated items to the box in the alcove. Your generosity is so very appreciated! Please note that warm cold weather socks (new, not used) are needed as well as nail clippers, hats/gloves (new or gently used), bars (like granola), personal wipes for hands, lip balms, masks, hand sanitizer, and toothpaste (small so they fit in a gallon plastic bag with other items).

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 choose to give is a blessing and is greatly appreciated.

Let us pray.  O God, we know that you above all time. Our new year is but a marker for us.  May we tap into your eternity, living out the timeless message of love in our lives now and always.  Amen.

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
