This Week May 30, 2017

Dear Folks,

I hope you had a pleasant holiday weekend, but, most of all, I hope you took the time to remember and to honor those who gave so much for our freedom.

Saturday is our Women's Fellowship Tag Sale, 9 A.M. to 2 P.M. Come, set up your own table ($20 per spot) or come to shop!!  You never know what treasures you may find! For more info or to reserve your spot, contact call Denise Wilson or the church office.

This Sunday is Pentecost, the birthday of the church, June 4. Wear red! We will be celebrating both sacraments: Holy Communion and the Baptism of Camden Miller, Robin Hartel's grandson. 

This Sunday we will be also collecting for our Emergency Assistance Fund, which we do every first Sunday of the month. The Mission Committee has developed this fund to assist people within the Shelton community and/or our church community who have an urgent, unexpected need for financial assistance. Please use the yellow envelopes in your pew rack and please be generous!

Sunday, June 11 is a big day! It's Children's and Robert Wilson Sunday, and Confirmation. Please come and celebrate our church's children and youth!

June 11 is also our Strengthen the Church Offering. This UCC offering supports church growth, pastoral and lay leadership development, youth and young adult ministries within conferences and administered by Local Church Ministries.

Let us pray. O God, help us to breathe, to breath deeply, to fill our lungs with the breathe of your Spirit. In this breath is our life, our strength, and our hope. Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
