Weekly News for September 1, 2021

MASKS REQUIREDFollowing CDC and our own guidelines at NYCC masks are again required to be worn in the church building regardless of your vaccination status.  Please keep them on for the entire time that you are in the building.  We will be holding worship service as we have been in the Fellowship Hall with social distancing guidelines in place.  Thank you.

Join us for Worship! 

We are now worshiping in-person and online on Sunday at 9:30 am. At this time because of the heat we are worshipping in the Fellowship Hall, and are still following CDC guidelines requiring you to be masked and socially distanced.  For those who wish to join us online via livestream please connect with us on YouTube at youtube.com/c/nyccucc.   If you would like to see the Sunday Bulletin that can be found on our website at http://nyccucc.com

Community Food Pantry

The Community Food Pantry serves people and families from North Yarmouth, Cumberland, Pownal and New Glouscester.  The pantry is open every other Friday from 3:00-6:00 pm. and currently serves over 80 families.  Our church supports the pantry with money and food donations.  We collect food donations in the grocery cart in the Gathering Space.  With the pandemic and fewer people in the church, the food donations have been less.  So, in hopes of having more food donations, on the first Sunday of the month, Communion Sunday, we are asking those attending church to bring something for the food cart.  Or if you won’t be at the service, drop something by when you can. 

As of 8/11 the list of Food Pantry needs include: 
Traditional baked beans (No other beans)                            Box cake and frosting
Italian and Ranch Dressing                                                   Sugar
Olives                                                                                    Maple syrup
Canned corn or peas                                                             K-cups
Chicken or beef gravy                                                           Coffee-Medium Roast
Pasta sauce                                                                          Cranberry juice
School snacks, protein bars                                                  Deodorant
Popcorn                                                                                 Pain relievers
Chips & salsa                                                                        Tissues
