Weekly News for July 30, 2021

IN THE NEWS THIS WEEK!

In Person Worship

We are now worshiping in person. We plan to be outside as much as possible, but it is raining or too hot we will move inside to the Fellowship Hall.  At this time, we will continue to be masked and socially distanced.  We will also be live streaming on YouTube at youtube.com/c/nyccucc.  

Pastor Nancy on Sabbatical

Pastor Nancy will be on Sabbatical for the month of July and then will take the first two weeks in August for vacation, Nancy will be away from July 1 – August 17.  Pastor Joe Connolly will be our guest pastor and will cover emergency pastoral care for the first three weeks in July and then we will have other guest pastors or Lay lead worship.

Pastoral Care Requests

For prayer requests or pastoral care during pastor Nancy’s sabbatical please contact Deacons Kathy Whittier at 254-7509 or Lois knight 318-0017.  If you wish to speak with Pastor Joe, they will ask him to contact you.

A Note from Leah

I would like to take this opportunity to recognize those who helped to make this year’s Strawberry Festival a huge success.  Through the generosity of several monetary contributions from outside and inside the church, all of our expenses were met prior to the festival and we were able to net $2,100.00.

Help for the Homeless

Summer needs for Grace Street Ministries:  new socks men and women’s – ankle and crew – white.  New men’s boxer briefs – M L XL.  Sports bras- new.  Consignment ready summer clothes – t-shirts, shorts, etc., and I have created a list on Amazon of personal care travel size items:

https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/5BE4ICKT49WW?ref_=wl_share

You can order off that list and have it shipped to my home address or you can just use it for ideas and purchase elsewhere.  I will make Ziplock bags of stuff to give out. 

I will not be doing Tuesdays during my sabbatical but will give items to Pastor Jeff and Pastor Karen for them to hand out. Thank you, Nancy
