International Disaster Relief  (click here to donate) or visit http://ucc.org/disaster/

Earthquakes, drought, cyclones, civil conflict and other disasters occur around the world almost daily. Most of these events go unreported in our media. Gifts to the International Disaster Fund enable the UCC to respond more fully to worldwide crises. Other situations in our world also require our attention and support such as violence against women and girls. With your help, the United Church of Christ stands with those in need in such situations. Your undesignated gifts allow the church to respond where most needed, or you may support a specific disaster, for example, by writing "Women and Children in Nigeria" in the comment section.

Donations may also be made out to Wider Church Ministries, and mailed to United Church of Christ, Financial Services, 700 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115. Gifts should be marked for International Disaster Relief, and specific disaster, if desired.

We worship God in Christ Jesus faithfully, engage in Bible study and prayerful contemplation, serve joyfully, and seek justice passionately, with the Holy Spirit as our guide.

We are an Open and Affirming Church: We respect the worth and dignity of all persons who come into our church family regardless of their race, age, gender, nationality, marital standing, economic status, mental or physical challenges, or sexual orientation. We promise to support one another in our personal struggles, to understand and accept differences in one another, and pray to strengthen our love and acceptance.

 


"Open and Affirming"

-Join us for Worship-

Congregational Church of North Stonington

Sunday, August 24th

10:00 a.m. with Church School and Nursery Care

 

 

 

“Finding of Moses”; He Qi, for more go to HeQiGallery.com

 

With Children:  Pastor Sue offers the children’s sermon and the children attend church school. 

 

 

From the Scriptures: Exodus1:8-210.  The time has come when Israel no longer remembers Joseph...and Egypt fear the growing numbers of Hebrews in the country.    

 

Our Message:  “Nobody knows...”  Maybe it’s because of the pervasive news about Ferguson, Missouri - It has me seeing parallels in the way the Hebrews are misunderstood in Moses’ time, and many “groups” today are misunderstood.  In all times and all places, ignorance and fear have contributed to violence.  What are we as people of faith to do today? 

 

In Music: 

Prelude:     “O God, the Rock of Ages” - attr. to J. Michael Haydn

Handbell Offertory   “He Walks With Me” - arr. Stephenson; Steve and Jen Gadaree, duet

Postlude:  “Built on a Rock”   - Martin

Hymns are “I Sing as I Arise Today”(new); “In Egypt Under Pharaoh”; “O God of Earth and Altar”. 

 

 

 

Serving in Worship this week:  Matthew Sander, Bob Kimball, ushers; Kathi Thaxton, Matthew Sander, deacons;

Pastor Sue, children’s sermon and lay reader. 

 

The altar flowers are given to the glory of God by Julie Evans in thanksgiving to God for Priya who has celebrated her 1st birthday and Naveen who has celebrated his 3rd.

 

­

Light the Steeple.  The steeple is lit this week to the glory of God in memory of Don Owler. To honor or remember someone by lighting the steeple you may sign up on the sheet on the wall leading into the sanctuary.
