May you all have a very blessed Thanksgiving Day. I give thanks for all you good folks of HCCUCC. I am so grateful to you for you generosity and faithfulness!
This evening, 7 P.M., at Trinity Lutheran Church will be the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service sponsored by the Shelton Clergy Association. Following the service will be a time of refreshment. Contributions of any Pumpkin/Fall desserts for all to enjoy would be appreciated. Donation of non-perishable goods will be collected for the Valley Food Bank. Monetary donations will benefit Spooner House. Please make checks payable to HUMC with Spooner House in the memo.
This Sunday, December 1, is the First Sunday in Advent. Holy Communion will be celebrated. The scripture is Micah 5:2-5a. The sermon will be a monologue. "Micah". Following worship, please stay to help the Diaconate decorate for the Christmas season.
There will be a meeting for all members of the Huntington Congregational Church UCC immediately following the worship service Sunday, December 8, 2019 for the purpose of presenting a draft budget for 2020 and to vote on By-Law revisions.
Friday, December 13th, Holly Fassbender will be preparing a Christmas meal for the residents of Spooner House Homeless Shelter. A collection will take place in the alcove or Fellowship Hall after services on December 1st & 8th to make a donation to help cover the cost of both the meal and gifts for the children. Please be generous.
The Mission Committee is holding the BH Care sponsored "Under the Tree" program to benefit needy adults and children in the Valley. All the tags have already be picked up! Thank you for your generosity! You are helping to help make Christmas a little brighter for someone in need. All purchased gifts need to be returned by Sunday, December 15th.
Sign-up sheets are available in the Alcove for Christmas Eve readers and singers. Please take a look and sign up!
Please take note of the poster in the Alcove with suggested items for the Valley Food Bank bin in Fellowship Hall. Of course, all items are gratefully accepted, but the Missions Committee put together a list that attempts to target items that may be needed more during certain seasons or months. The need is great, so please be generous!
Let us pray. Thank you God, for everything...everything we have, everything we are...past, present, and future. Amen.
In Christ's love,
