This Week March 6, 2018

Dear Folks,

Batten down the hatches!  We have another nor'easter coming!  Stay safe and warm!

In anticipation of this storm, Quiet Hour will be canceled tomorrow (Wednesday) morning.  We will make up the session on March 28.

The Ecumenical Lenten Dinner and Service on Wednesday evening at St. Lawrence is also canceled.

Remember to turn your clocks ahead before going to sleep on Saturday night.  You do not want to be late for church!

This Sunday, March 11 is the Fourth Sunday in Lent.  The scripture is John 3:11-21.  The sermon is "Earthly and Heavenly".  We will also be celebrating the baptism of Thomas James Corrone.

We will will be collecting this coming Sunday for the 30th Annual Bowl-2-Benefit for The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence.  Judy Tucker and Rita Boland will be in the Alcove after worship to receive your gift.  Please make checks out to Huntington Congregational Church with Bowl to Benefit in the memo. Thank you for your generosity!

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.

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 today and are due this Sunday.

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, March 25th. Chowder is $10.00 per quart. The prices on the homemade breads vary.

Please check the sign-up sheets in the Alcove for our upcoming Maundy Thursday events.  Reservation are needed for the Seder dinner.  Readers are needed for the Seder and the Tenebrae. 

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.

Let us pray.  O Holy One, may your loving presence be ever in our hearts as we journey through our lives.  May we be conduits of compassion, forgiveness, peace, and justice.  Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
