CHURCH BUILDING CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Please join us for live-streaming of our worship service on our church facebook page. You do not need to be a user of facebook to view it – here is a link:

The Chicken Pie Supper will be held on Friday, October 25. We will run the supper in the same fashion as last year with two seatings at 4:30 pm and 6:00 pm. We will be selling tickets prior to the supper.
Here is how this will work:
How will we buy our tickets?
The church will sell tickets on Sunday, October 6, from 1-3 p.m.

UCC Disaster Donations
$1,268.00!!! This is the amount of money that NYCC will be sending to the Bahamian Disaster Fund as of today, 09/18. Friday Lunch earmarked the money they took in last Friday and a generous gift was given through NYCC because they believed that nothing was taken off the top for administration or “other” expenses. And they are right. It all goes where the givers expect it to. We will continue to accept donations if you are so inclined. Thank-you so much. Jeanne
Parking Lot Paving
And speaking of donations we still are open for your help with our “Paving the Way ” project. If you have promised a specific amount, but haven’t sent it in, that would be appreciated, because we will be receiving bills (in fact we already have …..for the dirt work ) and we kind of need to know where we actually stand. A couple of folks have said they were intending to give, but haven’t gotten around to it. Excellent time for you to do it! Again, thank you seems so lame compared to how we really feel. Jeanne
We are also still waiting for a few folks to step up for service on a church committee. If you have questions, please ask Rev. Nancy, committee chairs, or Jeanne. The committees and Boards are making a real effort to streamline the time commitment involved, trying to avoid evening meetings, etc. We know lives are a lot different today then they were when our governance document was written years ago. Jeanne
P.S. Truth be told, we really aren’t terribly concerned about By-Laws, but the committees do need help doing the work of the church.

Pet Pantry Needs
Biggest Need: Kitty Litter, if possible scoop-able.
