So far, we've had two wonderful nights of Vacation Bible School. We learned about Moses' call from God to move the Israelites out of Egypt and the caring friends of the paralzed man who brought him to Jesus, who cared enough to heal him. Tonight we will hear about the blind man, Bartimaeus who Jesus healed of his blindness. Then, Bartimaeus followed Jesus. Our final night will be the story of Jesus' resurrection. His followers were to share this Good Neews! Four key words of our 2015 VBS are: Move, Care, Follow, and Share! Thanks to everyone who helped out this year!
This Sunday's scripture is Mark 6:1-13. The sermon is "Sent with Power". We will also be celebrating the sacrament of Holy Communion.
HCCUCC will be hosting the 3rd Annual Bruce E. Hartel Antique Car Show. Sunday, August 30th. During the summer, we are collecting donations of water and soda that can be left in Fellowship Hall marked with a "Car Show" note. Food and beverage proceeds will benefit HCC-UCC’s General Operating Fund. All other proceeds will benefit the Organ Fund and the American Cancer Society. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with the car show, please contact Robin Hartel.
As an outreach and to get the news of HCCUCC out to the community, the Vitality Team gives out free water and holds a free gift card give away each Wednesday evening during the Concerts on the Green during the summer. If anyone would like to help, you are more than welcome to come on out and/or donate water and/or a $25 gift card to a local store or eating place. Contact Rev. Lucille for more info. Thank you!
Please remember to tell all your friends that have preschool aged children that starting September 1st, 2015 Huntington Center Nursery School will be offering the option of full day preschool. We will continue to offer our regular and extended day programs. We want to be able to meet the needs of everyone in our community, therefore; the full time program will allow those families that need the longer hours to take advantage of our quality preschool program. Please contact our Director, Linda Rizzitelli at 203-929-7197 for more information. H.C.N.S. is open to the public.
Let us pray. O God, just was we taught our long people this week, help us all to move closer to you, care about each other, follow Jesus, and share the Good News of God's love! Amen.
In Christ's love,Rev. Lucille
