This Week February 21, 2018

Dear Folks,

I hope you are enjoying this taste of Spring today!!

This evening, the Ecumenical Lenten Service will be held at the First United Methodist Church, Rocky Rest and Long Hill Road.  Dinner is at 6 P.M., worship at 7 P.M.  I will be preaching.

This Sunday, February 25 is the Second Sunday in Lent.  We will also be celebrating Scout Sunday.  Aaron Corcino will be recognized for his completion of the God and Church program.  The scripture reading is Genesis 17:1-8, 15-16.  The sermon is "Legacy".

Women’s Fellowship is bringing back Rebecca Miller for a special tax workshop this Sunday following our service.   Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.

Shelton native, Rabbi Eliana Falk, will present a program on the Jewish Passover on Sunday, March 4 at Noon.  The HCCUCC Deacons will host a brunch following worship preceding the presentation.  Please sign up in the alcove to reserve your brunch seat!

Women’s Fellowship will be preparing Manhattan and New England Clam Chowder and a variety of homemade breads. To place your order, sign up on the sheet in the alcove or call the church office at 203 929-1223.  Pick-up will be on Sunday, February 25th and Sunday, March 25th. Chowder is $10.00 per quart. The prices on the homemade breads vary.

We will not have a Team this year in the 30th Annual Bowl-2-Benefit The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence but we will be collecting for those who would like to donate to this event during worship service on Sunday, March 11th.

Women’s Fellowship will hold their Annual Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner on Saturday, March 17th at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $13 for adults and $8 for children 10yrs. old and under. Hot dog dinners: two hot dogs w/vegetables are $8 and one hot dog w/chips is $4.00. Tickets will be on sale after church or you may see Karen in the office.

Women's Fellowship is collecting items for Church World Service Kits now through April 8th. A full list of these Items can be found on the CWS table in Fellowship Hall. Also, your donations can be left in the CWS box or Women’s Fellowship box. Please see Laura Salvio with any questions.

The Huntington Center Nursery School will be holding its annual Butter Braid fundraiser. Items will be Braided Pastry & Crisps. Order forms will be available after Sunday worship in Fellowship Hall on March 4th and are by March 11th.

Let us pray. O God, may you walk our Lenten journey with us. Help us to reflect, repent, and return to you.  May your Holy Presence fill us with meaning and purpose.  Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
