This Week October 5

Dear Folks,

The leaves are turning, the beauty of God's color palette is on display!

This Sunday is the kick off of our "Season of Generosity".  This year's theme is "Faith in the Future."  This Sunday's scripture is Hebrews 12:1-2.  The sermon is "The Past".  Sermons for this "Season of Generosity" will be interactive, so, for this Sunday, think about the prized memories you have of HCCUCC.  If you, for some reason, are unable to attend worship, please feel free to send me your memory and I will share it.

The United Church of Christ's offering, "Neighbors in Need" (NIN) will be taken.  NIN supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. One-third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM). Two-thirds of the offering is used by the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries (JWM) to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects through grants.  Neighbors in Need grants are awarded to churches and organizations doing justice work in their communities. These grants fund projects whose work ranges from direct service to community organizing and advocacy to address systemic injustice. 

Following worship, the Mission Committee is hosting a Pancake Brunch.  Ticket are $5.  If you have not yet purchased your ticket, please contact the church office ASAP to RSVP.

Let us pray.  Help us, O God, to breath.  Help us to fill our lungs with your force of life.  Help us to receive your presence.  Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
