This Week September 14

Hi Folks,

Enjoy the last full week of summer!  The Fall Equinox will be Thursday, September 22.

Our annual Outdoor Worship and Picnic is this Sunday, September 18, 11 A.M., at Pemberley (the parsonage, 160 Huntington Street).  This is rain or shine!!!!  Please bring a chair or a blanket and a dish to pass. Please RSVP to the church office: 203-929-1223. The cost is $5 per person, $10 per family which covers hot dogs, hamburgers, and drinks.  This is always a great time, so come bring your family, your friends, your neighbors...

The scripture lesson for this Sunday is Amos 5:21-24.  The sermon title is "Yeah, That".

Rally Sunday will be on September 25!  Come on back to church and Sunday School!  The children will be in church through the "Bag Message" and then will head on out to Sunday School.  We are looking forward to another great year of learning about God and all God's goodness!

HCCUCC will have a booth at Shelton Day on October 2, 11 A.M. to 5 P.M.  We will be on Howe Avenue across from Webster Bank in front of Dee's Kitchen.  Stop by and say hi!  If you would like to help out for any amount of time, please contact me.  We would love to have you!

The Mission Committee is sponsoring a Pancake Brunch on Sunday, October 9 following worship.  Tickets are $5 and can be purchased on Sundays, September 25 and October 2.  Proceeds go to benefit our Emergency Assistance Fund and the UCC Neighbors in Need offering.

Let us pray.  Sometimes, O God, the problems in our lives and in our world see insurmountable.  May your loving, strengthening presence help us to cope.  May your powerful, enlivening Spirit help us to find joy.  Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
