This Week May 17, 2022

Dear Folks,

I hope you can enjoy this beautiful day!

This coming Sunday is the Sixth Sunday of Easter.  The scriptures are Acts 16:9-15 and John 14:23-29.  The sermon is   “Gathering In”. The service is on-site and Facebook live-streamed.

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.

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. Please note that we cannot take items yet, and they may not be dropped off in Reuman House. As the time gets closer, there will be information on where and when to do this. Until then, please consider us as you do any spring clean-out!

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, 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 Holy God, open us up to the eternal love you have for a people, all things.  Help us to embody that love with words and deeds of generosity and compassion.  Amen.

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
