Photo Directory

We are doing this, people!! 

We are producing our own church directory utilizing our own talents, and we are excited!! A current directory will be a useful tool for our new Pastor to utilize in getting to know who we are. It’s also a super-handy way for US to get more familiar with our fellow congregants. We are ambitious, and we would really like to have 100% of our H.U.C.C. family represented in the shiny, new Photo Directory. 

Barry Pitkoff will be our photographer, and he has set aside the following dates for sittings:
Saturday June 2nd
Saturday June 16th
Saturday June 23rd. 
10am to 8pm each day – that’s 10 hours!

Barry is committing his Saturdays to do this for our church. The Directory Committee encourages everyone to sign up quickly to get the most convenient time slots. The sign-up sheet will be in the SUNDAY SCHOOL WING SIGN-UP CENTER. You may also receive pleasantly “harassing” phone calls to encourage you to schedule. To schedule by phone, or if you have questions, please call Tina Richards (215) 534-3851 or Vicki Bosler (267) 980-4957 – leave a message or send a text and they’ll get back to you.

We also are still seeking multiple persons to assist with this project. Barry’s going to need help on those long 10 hour days so he can focus on making beautiful photos. We are looking for a team of people to take a few hours-long shifts to work reception, do address/phone # verification, and assist Barry with setting up the photos (positioning subjects, checking lights, etc.) This last job would be great for people who have an interest in photography or are super detail-oriented.

Acts 2:17-21

2:17 'In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.
2:18 Even upon my slaves, both men and women, in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.
2:19 And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist.

Asylum Seekers Ministry

The Baceanu Family

The Mission Committee voted to send $100 in support of St. Paul's UCC in Exton "Asylum Seekers Ministry." The family of four, including two children ages 16 and 17, left Romania to escape discrimination and prejudice due to their ethnicity, Roma or "Gypsy." They are in the process of applying for authorization to legally work in the United States but need help in providing for their basic needs of food and housing. Because they come from a country without refugee status they are ineligible for any support services provided by refugee agencies. St. Paul's felt God was calling them to action but they need help. More information about the family is posted on the bulletin board across from the nursery and in the Narthex and at:
https://saintpaulsucc.net/ministry/asylum-seekers-ministry. 
If you would like to contribute to this mission, please see Rhea Levy-Fry and your money will be forwarded to St. Paul's UCC. Thank you!

The goal of "In Ian's Boots" is to spread the good news of Ian's faith by providing shoes and winter boots to those in need! A collection bin is in the Narthex if you have new or used shoes or boots to donate. Children’s boots are especially needed for the winter.
