This Sunday in worship…

Henrietta UCC Open and Affirming Sunday

This Sunday will we mark the 8th anniversary of HUCC’s Open and Affirming covenant. I so wish we could all be together in the Sanctuary for this, and of course in Fellowship Hall together afterwards for a grand celebration. But even without that, we shall celebrate together from our own spaces.

I have one of the more unique “set of instructions” for you for worship this week which you will ever get. Please have ready (in addition to your communion elements) a chocolate chip cookie, or a slice of your favorite pie, or a cupcake, or a Danish ….. you get the idea! Be ready with something sweet and delicious and which says “celebration” to you.

Our text will be Matthew 28: 16-20, from the Great Commissioning. Worship will begin at 10:30am, and you can find us at:

Don’t forget to have your communion ready! We will again celebrate the Lord’s Supper together on Sunday, so be sure and gather your elements, be they grape juice and bread, coffee and doughnut, or whatever you have in your home. The table Jesus set is so broad and vast that it extends from the Sanctuary to your home and beyond.

I want to again thank all of you for faithfully participating in the offering.  We are so grateful for folks sending their pledges and Dollar A Day gifts in, as well as to those submitting them online. To make your gift online, just go to and click on the “Online Donation” button on the right-hand side. Dollar A Day has “sold” roughly 76 of the 100 “shares” ($366) needed to reach the goal. If you have yet to “purchase a share” and are able to, please consider this gift in supporting God’s work from this congregation.

If you have prayer requests or announcements that need to be made, please email them to the church by 6pm Saturday, 6/6/2020.

Zoom Fellowship Hour will happen right after worship – please note that you may need to “update” your Zoom software. We know that there have been some issues. Andrea has put the information to get to Fellowship Hour  in  Happenings, and an email with a link will come to you on Sunday morning as well.
