2021 financial pledge to NYCC
Around 25 new pledges have been received to date…..and thank you so much for these precious gifts. We are in the midst of preparing a new budget for next year and it would be so helpful to have an estimate of what we will be receiving for the new year. Last year we had around 48 -50 pledges, so this year is a bit behind. If you have forgotten, it is not too late to send it in, or if you have misplaced the yellow pledge card, Lyn (829-3644) can send you a replacement, OR you can simply write the necessary information on a piece of paper. That would be your name—–amount pledged per week….month or a yearly gift, AND where you wish it to be used, i.e., General Fund, Missions, other (please specify ) Thank you for your care and concern in this situation.

Staff Christmas Gifts
An opportunity to wish our staff a Merry Christmas! Despite a most unusual year, and surely not a very positive one, our NYCC staff has turned cartwheels (can you pictures of that) to keep the church a vital part of many of our lives. So, this is your chance to give a little something to them for their holidays. You can send cash or stop by church and hand it to Lyn, or send a check made out to Jeanne Chadbourne clearly marked “Staff Gifts”. It would be good to have your contributions by mid December if you can. Thanks , Jeanne

p.s. Stay safe, do the right thing and don’t share the air!
Jeanne

At Home Advent Packets
We have at home Advent packets available for families and others. Please come by the church to pick one up if you are interested. They will be in a plastic bin outside the church doors. Please look for the envelopes that do not have names on them. If they are all gone please let the office know and we will make more. Advent begins on November 29th.

Subscribe to Youtube
We have a YouTube channel! Please go and subscribe to it! If you have more then one email go ahead and subscribe twice!!

Why do we have those cryptic links, you ask?

If we have 100 subscribers, we can get a custom url like ‘Nyccucc’ and then our link will not be so crazy. We currently have 68 subscribers. If you go to our YouTube channel YOU can subscribe- it is free! You will need to put in your email address. Pastor Nancy

Huge Thanks for Winter Coats for the homeless
