Dear Folks,

Hope you are well and enjoying the day!

It was a pleasure to meet our summer supply preacher on Sunday. She will be a wonderful addition to our congregation!

This Sunday, May 21, is the Seventh Sunday of Easter. Our service will be outdoors in the back parking lot. In case of bad weather, we will be in the sanctuary. This is also our kickoff Sunday for our Season of Generosity. The scripture is Matthew 25:31-46. The sermon is our Season of Generosity theme: “Because of YOU, Our Church Changes Lives.”

Bottled water is needed for our Concert on the Green (starting July 5) free water hand-outs. Please put water in the Fellowship Hall and mark it with COG. Thank you!

Make sure your calendars are marked for our Community Tag Sale on June 10, rain date, June 17. If you would like to donate to the Women’s Fellowship’s table, please bring items pre-priced starting May 21. It’s $20 per space if you would like to rent one. Contact Denise Wilson for more details.

We are so pleased to have our lovely Syrian family settled! Thank you to all who make this possible! Continued support is greatly appreciated!

The Valley Food Bank at Spooner House – There is a new list of needed items in the Alcove. Please pick up a copy. Please use the box in the Alcove for donations. The Blessing Box also needs to be stocked! Please note that our Spooner House Meal is now the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Funds for Clean-up Buckets Needed – Women’s Fellowship is collecting monetary donations for Church World Service Clean up buckets. Checks may be made out to HCC with “Buckets” on the memo line. You can drop your donation in the bucket on Sundays or you can use the on-line option on our website. The need now is urgent.

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 God, when our lives are filled with hurry and hassle, may you remind us to stop, breath, and feel your calming, nurturing presence. Amen.

In Christ’s love,
Rev. Lucille
