School Kits: We’re looking for medium weight fabric to make the school kit bags.  If you have fabric you no longer need, please consider donation it to this worthy cause.

Summer Reminders for Generous Souls:
Have a safe and exciting summer, but please don’t forget to keep your pledge payments and offerings current over the summer. We need to pay our bills throughout the year, even when everyone else takes a break.Your regular pledge payments and offerings will be greatly appreciated. Member Dues: This would be a good time to pay on the Member Dues pledge you made last fall; and if you did not pledge an amount for Member Dues which are sent annually to the CT Conference of the UCC, please send in an extra check.

Pies to Bake & Pies For Sale
What’s better in early summer than a Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie?
We have started the baking of our many varieties of fruit pies at our church kitchen and would love to have your help and donations. You can drop off rhubarb and berries any time and leave them in the refrigerator or freezer if ready to use. We would also have a job you could do to join in on the fellowship and really help out … even helping for 1 hour is greatly appreciated; you can wash dishes or fold boxes if you do not wish to bake. The fruit pies are all available while we are baking and in the freezers. Fruit Pies are $14.00 each. Orders can be made by phone: 860-535-0379.
