This Week May 24, 2022

Dear Folks,

I hope you can enjoy this beautiful day!

This coming Sunday is the Seventh Sunday of Easter.  The scripture is are Acts 16:9-15 and John 15:12-17.  The Deacons will be leading a Memorial Day tribute.  The service will be on-site and Facebook live-streamed at:  https://www.facebook.com/HCCUCC and will be available for viewing on Facebook and YouTube later on Sunday.  

Looking ahead, Sunday, June 5 is Pentecost.  We will be celebrating Holy Communion.  Following the service, the Sunday School will be hosting an ice cream celebration for Robert and Gertrude Wilson Sunday, remembering and honoring all dairy farmers.

VALLEY REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROJECT (VRRP) HCCUCC and other organizations and individuals will be partnering to resettle refugee families across the lower Naugatuck Valley.  For a successful outcome, will need at least 30 volunteers from across the Valley. Volunteers are required to take 3 – 2-hour online training sessions. Tasks would include (but not limited to) teaching English as a second language, driving to appointments, setting up housing, getting supplies, and teaching driving skills. If you have any questions, please contact: Bob Margolies at 203-400-1769 or email: margolies@mac.com.

Women’s Fellowship will again be holding our Annual Tag Sale on June 4 (rain date June 11). You are welcome to have your own space or donate items to the church table.

Our Church Auction will be held on Saturday, June 18.  Material is in the Alcove or contact Linda Sember.

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!

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 God, as we approach Memorial Day, please let us remember in gratitude all those who have gone before us, who sacrificed so much to keep us free.  Help us do our part in maintaining that freedom.  Amen.

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
