  This Weeks Happenings for June 9, 2017


Rev. Timothy Gilbert


Good Morning Congregational Church of Union, UCC,

The scripture reading for this Sunday, Pentecost Sunday, is John 20: 19-23.  The sermon is entitled " To Be Breathed Upon".  Remember, if you can, to wear red in remembrance of Pentecost, and the tongues of fire (Holy Spirit) the disciples received on that day.  We are also blessing our graduates during the service.  We have a number of students who graduated from Elementary and High Schools from our congregation, and we will be honoring them with a blessing for all their hard work and accomplishments.  I hope you can attend to support them.

Last Sunday was Children's Sunday, and it was beautiful.  The children, under the direction of Steve and Denise Babbitt, did the whole service, and did a great job!  The young people were able to tell the congregation the many places they find God in their lives, and their answers were thoughtful and insightful.  Our young people are already on a spiritual journey, and I thank Denise and Steve for their deep and abiding commitment to the educational program.  I can't forget to tell you about the music!  The young people had the congregation on their feet, moving about with the song, "Father Abraham", and did a round with the congregation called "Shout out your Joy", with Rev. Tim on the guitar.  The young people held their own, and the round sounded beautiful.  God was certainly pleased with the worship that day!

June 18 is Father's Day, and we will be honoring our fathers during the service.  Please come and join us as we honor new dads, experienced dads, and remember dads no longer with us.  All are welcome.

Summer hours start on July 1st, when we go to 9:45AM.  That will continue through until September 1st, when we will return to our regular 10:45AM time.

That's all I have for now.  Until we meet again, may God bless you always.


Peace,

Rev. Tim
