Weekly News for September 21

Join us for Worship! We are worshiping in person on Sundays at 9:30 am.  For those who wish to join us online 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.  If you wish to make an offering it can be made online through Tithely at https://tithe.ly/give?c=1301940

Masks Optional
Masks are now optional in the church building as transmission rates in Cumberland County have decreased. Please use your own judgement regarding wearing one.  We will continue to adhere to social distancing in the sanctuary and in Fellowship Hall.

Join us for a time of conversation, coffee and assembling lunches for our Portland friends this coming Sunday after church. It is an opportunity for us to help put the lunches together and just enjoy being/working with church friends for a short time.  Everything needed for the lunches will be there. In other words just bring yourself.  Don’t feel like building lunches?  You can do some heavy looking on !

Jewelry Request for the Christmas Fair
Are you sure of what’s in your jewelry box or drawer?  Got some items to go with a particular outfit and that’s no longer in your closet?  Tuesday Gals would adore having the items for our guests at the Santa’s Workshop fair.  What about lapel pins, rings, tie tacks, chains for men?  Please bring your items to Lyn in the church office.  Or stop in and chat with Tuesday Gals; we are in the Fellowship Hall starting at 10:00 am. Of course, we’d enjoy seeing you and maybe you’d like a cup of coffee.  Think of the jewelry as getting a new life!!

Church Building Re-Keyed
The re-keying project has been completed.  All doors except the pastor’s door and the daycare door have been re-keyed.  All Committee Chairs have been issued a new key.  If you have not picked yours up yet, it will be in your mailbox at the church.  The office is open Monday-Thursday from 7:30-12:00 noon to pick up your key or get lock box instructions.  If you will be using the new lockbox that is now installed.  You can contact Lyn for Instructions at 829-3644 or 615-1650 if it is not during office hours.The “key” to this project is to get a list of names of all of those who now have a new key, and a list of names of those who have the combination to the lockbox.  If you have any questions or concerns please let the office know at 829-3644 or nyarmouthccucc@gmail.com

Neighbors in Need Special Offering 
In 2022, the Neighbors in Need “BEHOLD!” offering focuses on an economic justice. With inflation impacting all of our households, we wanted to provide a way to discuss this through a faith lens. Join us by promoting this year’s NIN “Behold!” campaign at your church. As you may recall, one-third of the offering supports Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM). Two-thirds are used by Justice and Witness Ministries to provide grants to UCC churches and organizations as well as supporting a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects. We will collect this offering on October 2.
