This Week September 6, 2022

Dear Folks,

Thank God for the rain!  Let us pray for no flooding!

Thursday is my prayer day.  Please let me know if you have any joys or concerns you would like me to lift up to God.

This coming Sunday, September 11, is the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost.  At 11 a.m. we will be having an outdoor worship followed by our annual Church Picnic. The service will be live streamed on Facebook. Please note there is no 9:30 a.m. service.   The reservation deadline for the Church Picnic was Sunday, but you can still sign-up ASAP by contacting the church. The cost is $6 per person or $12 per family.  You can pay the day of the picnic.   We will be in the lower parking lot near the kitchen.  Please wear your HCCUCC T-Shirts and bring a chair.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, and drinks provided; please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Rain or shine!  

We are in the final weeks of our Season of Generosity which culminates at our “In-Gathering” Sunday on September 25. Our theme is “What HCCUCC Means to Me”. Please consider thinking and praying on this topic, jot down your thoughts and feelings, and send them to Rev. Lucille to be used in a Sunday service.  Thank you!

VALLEY REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROJECT – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!  A well vetted and needy refugee family is waiting to find safe haven! Our church’s VRRP group has moved forward with full funding, team organization, and potential housing in place!  All we need is YOU!  We need a few more team members to meet requirements to proceed.  A donation basket is also set out in the sanctuary for your generous contributions.  Online donations on our website are also most welcome.

For more info, please the church.

Clean-up buckets are needed after the recent devastating floods. Women’s Fellowship is asking for monetary donations for Church World Service to assemble and ship these buckets for distribution. Checks may be made out to HCC with “Buckets” on the memo line. You can drop your donation in the bucket in the sanctuary or you can use the on-line option on our website. The need now is urgent. Thank you for your generosity.

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. You can also donate on 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 One, may we live our lives in balance, not too much, not too little.  And we pray that too for the forces of nature around us, not too much, not too little. Yet help us to know that even in the extremes, your presence is there offering healing, comfort, and hope. Amen.

In Christ’s love,

Rev. Lucille
