Up Coming Events:
On Sunday March 5, the middle school class will be holding the annual Heifer Luncheon after church. All the donations we receive will go to support the important work that Heifer International is doing to provide better living standards for those around the world struggling to feed their families. Please plan to attend.
Creative Hands Meeting
Meets at 10am on the fourth Monday of every month. All are invited to come and help out! There are plenty of things to create and we will even teach you how. You can also grab items to work on at home. We are grateful for any help you can give!
Lenten Soup Supper – every Wednesday evening during Lent (March 8 – April 12) we will encourage one another to pause in our hectic schedules and join together to share a simple, informal Fellowship Meal of soup and bread. Dinner will be available from 5:45pm to 8pm(ish). It is an open meal, arrive and depart as you must, but know that everyone is welcome to partake. Come, eat, breathe, laugh – depart refreshed. There will be a sign-up sheet in the sign-up center for people who would like to provide soups and/or breads and also a separate sheet to help us guesstimate attendance. To support those who practice abstinence during the season of Lent, we will always have one tasty soup choice that is Vegetarian and we will not serve desserts.
Annual Chili and Bread Cook Off
The great annual chili and bread cook off will be March 19 immediately following church. All are invited to participate as a cook, baker or just partaker. For the cooks, please sign up to bring a crock pot of chili, for the bakers, please sign up to bring your famous bread. For the partakers, just bring your appetites! Note prizes and bragging rights will be awarded.
One Great Hour of Sharing—March 26th
One Great Hour of Sharing supports projects that break the cycles of poverty, hunger and thirst, as well as providing aid during times of crisis. The bulk of the One Great Hour of Sharing offering goes to support water, hunger, disaster relief and empowerment programs. Focusing on these four areas allows One Great Hour of Sharing to address some of the root causes of suffering in our world. Your gifts make hope possible.

Annual Bunco Night
Will be held on April 22 so mark your calendars. For those not familiar with Bunco, it is a dice game for all ages, as long as you can roll dice you’re in! It’s also a great way to get to know other members and have some fun! Please bring an appe-tizer or dessert to share. The theme this year is Earth Day! Who will get to wear the Bunco sash this year??
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
We have settled the dates for VBS. This year VBS will take place from June 19-23. It’s always such a blessing to the helpers, children, and community. Please consider volunteering for this wonderful stewardship opportunity. If you have any neighbors or friends with children please ask them to mark their calendars and plan for a fun week.
Volunteers needed at HUCC
There are lots of ways to get more involved at HUCC. If you are interested in serving and joining in on the fun, please see the bulletin board across from the nursery for contact information about anything that interests you. Our greatest need is presently having some more volunteers join in serving our children during Sunday School.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support of Chosen 300. We were able to once again deliver over 100 coats, blankets, hats, etc for the homeless this winter. You are all welcome at any time to go and help serve during their meals. Brian welcomes all at any time. Check out Chosen 300 Online! A wonderful Mission! Please continue to save your old blankets, coats and items and place them in bin under the stairs. Thank you!
Daily Bread Community Food Pantry
With your amazing support we serviced 306 families ( a total of 1,131 individuals) and gave toys to 461 children . Many, many of our families have repeatedly told us if they would not have had help from the pantry there would not have been a holiday in their home! They all wanted to extend a very heart felt thank you!
Women's Center of Montgomery County
Thanks so much for inviting us to speak to your congregation on January 8th. You are a very warm and welcoming church! Also, thanks to the people who handed me gift cards at service that day...as I think I mentioned, we were down to our last Wawa card the Thursday before. I also appreciated the tour and the history that you shared about Heidelberg UCC—very interesting.
