I hope you are all looking forward to Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of Christ's Church!
I will be having my prayer day later this week. If you have any joys or concerns to lift up, please let me know.
We will be celebrating Pentecost Sunday with the reception of three new members to HCCUCC: Charles Bures, Daniel Oliva, and Eva Washenko. We warmly welcome them into our community of faith!
The Rev. Dr. Michael Ciba, Senior Regional Minister of the Connecticut Conference of the United Church of Christ will be with us on Sunday. He will be presenting us with our "Open and Affirming" Certificate as well as our "5 for 5" Certificate. He will also be preaching. The scripture is Acts 2:1-21, the sermon title is "In Our Own Language".
May 22 is Children's Sunday. Let's show how much we appreciate our children and our Sunday School teachers! Following worship, we will going on a Prayer Walk. For more info, contact me.
May 29 is Music Sunday. Come and celebrate this very important part of our worship!
Let us pray. O Holy One of goodness and grace, open our hearts to your love. Urge us not to hoard it, but to share it. Amen.
In Christ's love,
