  This Weeks Happenings for September 21, 2021

Good Evening Congregational Church of Union, UCC,

I have sad news for you.  Helen Bradway, a long time member of the church, has died.  There will be a memorial service for Helen this Thursday, September 23rd, at 11AM, at the church.  There will be a reception following the memorial service at the Town Hall, the lower back entrance.  Calling hours are on Wednesday, September 22nd, from 5-7PM, at Introvigne Funeral Home in Stafford Springs.  Please keep the Bradway Family in our prayers as they deal with the loss of Helen.

This past Sunday, we should have been celebrating "Balloon Sunday", which kicks off the Sunday School year.  Unfortunately, due to COVID, the Sunday School will be closed for this year.  It is our hope that next year, COVID will be in the rear view mirror, and we can once again have our children in Sunday School.

The Deacons are having a meeting after church on Sunday following the service.

Please keep Clarence and Georgial Ballard in your prayers.

I wanted to let you know that the deacons have discussed the Holly Fair, and have decided that the fair will be canceled for this year.  By next year, we hope and pray that things will be back to "normal"., whatever normal is! 

Ellen Sedlak will be going to the bank to deposit church checks every third week of the month.  If your have a church offering that you wish to have Ellen deposit, you can send them to Ellen's address, which is 43D East Main Street, Stafford Springs, CT, 06076.  Thank You.

We will be continuing to collect food for our area food bank.  While any food stuffs are okay to donate, we will be posting different food to collect.  For the months of August and September, we will collect pasta and sauce, along with macaroni and cheese, and canned pasta (like ravioli, spaghettis, or Chef Boyardee).  We have baskets in the back of the church to put your donations in.  Thank you for your help, as we help those who need it.

God's Blessings On You All,

Rev. Tim
