This Sunday, May 21, 2017 our Refugee Action Committee will present the second in their series of forums, informing us of ways that we assist those caught in the grips of finding themselves refugees. All are invited to a luncheon in our vestry and after worship on May 21st.

​A the forum, we will be hosting two presenters:

Carmen Maquilon on behalf of Catholic Charities and Dot Beardslee, who sponsored a family from Pakistan in October of 2016. We invite you to join us and include any friends or neighbors you think might be interested in understanding more about this modern-day forced exodus, as well as ways in which our congregation and community can work together in this work of Justice and Love.


You are Invited! And, invited to help!

On Saturday, May 20th  and Sunday May 21st Sayville Congregational United Church of Christ will again be participating in The New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Sacred Sites Open House.

This year’s theme is, “Stained Glass: Windows on this World and the Next”.

The Church will be open Saturday May 20 from 11:00 AM  to 4:00 PM and Sunday May 21 from 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM for self-guided tours and a continuous PowerPoint ‘slide show’ running in the sanctuary illustrating the history of the church building and its stained glass windows.

Church members will also be on hand to answer questions and light refreshments will be available.  For a preview see http://sacredsitesopenhouse.org/project/sayville-congregational-united-church-of-christ/

Sayville Congregational United Church of Christ is one of only two churches ‘on the map for the tours’ this year in Suffolk County, with the other being Christ Episcopal in Sag Harbor.

Please join us and invite your friend to enjoy the beautiful stained glass are that is part of our sanctuary home. And, if you have time, please volunteer to be on hand as visitors arrive. Contact Hank Maust to sign up as a greeter – or just show up! 🙂
