This Week November 21, 2023
May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.
This coming Sunday, November 26, is The Reign of Christ. The scriptures are Psalm 95:1-7a and Ephesians 1:15-23. The sermon is “The Eyes of our Hearts”.
HCCUCC is participating in the BHCare Under the Tree program to benefit disadvantaged adults and children in the Valley. Thank you to everyone who picked up a gift tag on Sunday. We have one left! All purchased wrapped gifts (with original tag) need to be returned by Sunday, December 10th, or you may donate monetarily to BHCare at:
Advent starts on December 3. If you don’t have one, get a Reverse Advent Calendar today. A suggestion is given for each day of Advent. This year, we are giving to benefit the Valley Food Bank at Spooner House and our Blessing Box. You can do all or just a few, whatever works for you. May it remind us of God’s great gift to us in Jesus Christ: in gratitude, we too give!
The Valley Food Bank at Spooner House – There is a 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. Questions—see Holly or Gerry Fassbender.
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, www.huntingtonucc.org. Electronic Fund Transfer giving is also available. Please email the church, email@example.com if you would like a form to set that up. Any way you give is a blessing and is greatly appreciated.
Let us pray. Gracious Creator, thank you! Thank you for all that we have and all that we are. Thank you for your constant love and care. May our lives show our gratitude in words and acts of compassion and generosity. Amen.
In Christ’s love,
