Dear Folks,

We offer thanks to God for the recent rains.  We needed it!

This Saturday is the Women’s Fellowship Outdoor Tag & Bake Sale in the HCCUCC parking lot. STILL TIME TO GET A SPACE!!  Spaces will be $20/each and  you may reserve more than one.  Spaces are open to everyone & anyone so tell your friends, neighbors, and coworkers! Also you may donate items to be sold with profits going to Women’s Fellowship projects/mission. We are also looking for donations of baked goods. Call Denise Wilson at 203-929-2656 or email her at

This Sunday's scripture is Mark 3:20-35.  The sermon is "The Will of God".  We will be celebrating the sacrament of Holy Communion.

The following Sunday, June 14 is Children's/Robert Wilson Sunday.

"My Sister's Place" in Ansonia has placed a bin in Fellowship Hall to collect clean, gently used clothes, accessories, and small household items. No furniture (you can take it yourself to the store), baby equipment, old books and magazines, stuff animals, or broken/more than 5 year old electronics, including computers.  Donation slips for tax purposes will be available. The proceeds of "My Sister's Place" go to BHCare's "Umbrella" Center for Domestic Violence Services to aid domestic abuse victims and their children.  What a great way to clean out the closets and help those in need. It's a win-win!!!

Vacation Bible School is coming up, June 29 through July 2, 5:30 P.M. to 7:45 P.M.  The theme is "G-Force". Grab a registration form for your children or friends that might enjoy this great program in the alcove or volunteer to help. This is for children who have completed at least one year of preschool- 4th grade. Food donations are also needed and will soon be hung up in the alcove as well. We also need someone who would be willing to cook on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  Please consider helping us bring children closer to God. Any questions please contact Kirsten Keith at 203-929-4225.

Please mark your calendar on June 28 following our worship service for the first Open and Affirming event.  We will be outlining the process and gathering your questions, comments, and concerns.  Please make every effort to attend!

Let us pray.  As we face the ever changing face of our world and our very lives, help us to feel, O God, your eternal love.  Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
