This Week October 18

Dear Folks,

I hope you are enjoying the little reprise of summer!!

This week is the third week of our Season of Generosity.  The scripture reading is Hebrews 11:1-3.  The sermon is "The Future".  Please think about your hopes and dreams for HCCUCC.

October 30 will be the culmination of our Season of Generosity:  "In Gathering Sunday", when we will offer our Faith Promise/Pledge cards for 2017.  If you have not yet received your Faith Promise/Pledge packet, they should be delivered shortly in the mail.  Also, an email will be going out in the next couple of days with electronic forms if you choose to go that route.  Extra copies are also available in the Alcove.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, October is our latest "LEO" (Let's Eat Out).  We are going to the Twisted Vine, 285 Main Street, Derby at 6:30.  If you would like to go, please let me know ASAP.

Kirsten Keith will be hosting HCCUCC's Girl Night Out (GNO) on Thursday, October 20 at 7 P.M.  Please bring an appetizer; Kirsten will provide the beverages. Please RSVP ASAP to Kirsten at  andrew.keith@sbcglobal.net.

Let us pray.  O God, life is so full of surprises, like an 80 degree day in the middle of October.  But, some surprises are less pleasant.  Give us the wisdom and the grace to face whatever comes our way, knowing that you walk with us.  Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
