This Sunday in Worship…

Sunday in Worship…

This Sunday, May 22, is the Sixth Sunday of Easter. Our scripture reading is John 14: 23-29, which will be read by Maddie Wolff. Henry Stone will be our cantor, and our Choir anthem will be “The Potter’s Hand,” with words and music by Darlene Zschech and choral setting by Lloyd Larson.

New York Conference UCC Associate Conference Minister Rev. Ryan Henderson will be our guest preacher (I need to be away this weekend). Rev. Henderson will be speaking a bit about the recent tragic events in Buffalo. Earlier this week, Rev. Henderson was part of a meeting with Governor Kathy Hochul on the subject, as well as other meetings surrounding this horrible tragedy. More information about Rev. Henderson is elsewhere in this week’s issue of Happenings.

We look forward to being able to have fellowship outside again this week. Can we make it four weeks in a row? We do not yet know how the weather will be at Fellowship Hour, but let us hope that so much of the pleasant weather we have had recently decides to bless us for some time together after worship. Our Deacons have purchased a sizeable supply of “grab and go” snacks and look forward to sharing those with you again outdoors.

For those joining in from home, as always, the Zoom room will be open for Fellowship Hour after worship as well. Worship will begin at 10:30am, and we look forward to your joining us in person or on our YouTube channel at

If you have prayer requests or announcements that need to be made, you may email them to the church by 6pm Saturday, 05/21/2022.

Be reminded that we remain mask-mandatory, AND that we have lots of appropriate KN95 and medical grade masks at the church. Don’t hesitate to ask if you need one, and please thank Joan Barnes and Laura Markwick for the kind generosity in obtaining and donating so many of them for us.

Thanks and blessings,

Pastor Jason
