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.
Shop With Scrip
You can fundraise for Heidelberg just by shopping, something you already do. Best of all, there are no out of pocket expenses to you. All proceeds will go to the General Fund. To learn more about Shop with Scrip, please reach out to Nick or Eleanor after church.
Please, come as you are to worship with us at our 'Come and See' Church!

Donations and Drives:
January Missions Collection
The Mission Committee is once again collecting Giant and Wawa gift cards during the month of January for the Women's Center in Pottstown PA. The Women's Center provides help to women of physical and mental abuse right here in our own area. Your $10 to $20 gift cards will help women in abuse situations have the funds needed to purchase basic emergency supplies, gas or bus fare when they are required to appear in court. There will be a box at the front entrance of the church during the month of January for you to place your donations. You can also give your donations to Lily and she will pick up additional gift cards with any money donations she receives. If you have any questions, contact Lily.
In Ian’s Boots
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. For more information you can review their website at www.iniansboots.org
Daily Bread Community Food Pantry
We are continually looking for donation for the Daily Bread Community Food Pantry. The pantry shelves are very low and any and all donations are greatly appreciated! They are also in great need of volunteers to help Monday through Friday from 9am to 12pm.
We received a letter from Loretta Stever of the food pantry thanking us for our donation of two $100 gift cards to Giant. In addition they thanked us for hosting their annual Christmas Party for clients of the food pantry and our gifts of "luxury items" of foil pans, butter, coffee and tea for the Christmas dinners of their clients and also our donations of toys for their Holiday Shop. The letter read in part, "It seems that whenever a need arises, Heidelberg comes to the rescue with money, volunteers and donations. Being able to use your church for our yearly Christmas party means that the people we serve will get a joyful start on their holiday season thanks to all of you. Your generosity means the world to the Pantry and the families we serve. The pantry provided food and essentials for 309 households in November, which consists of 1,158 individuals 470 of whom are children. Your gifts make it possible for the Pantry to provide for those individuals who are facing the heartbreaking problems of not being able to make ends meet for their families. Your loving support is endless, thank you will never be enough."
