Dear Friends,

I hope that you are having a good week! It was wonderful to have Fran Bergmann with us, healing nicely from her hip replacement and Jane MacGowan joining us for the first time since her recent hospital stay. It is right and good and fun when we are all together.

We have also been welcoming several visitors over the last month, and I thank so many of you for greeting and getting to know those who find us, however they do! There is a spirit here  that attracts others to our sanctuary. It is wonderful to watch and to watch you spread the joy we share!

There is also much taking place at Sayville Congregational United Church of Christ and this eChimes highlights just a bit of it!. If you think something is missing or you have news and prayer requests to share, please contact Heather with the information. We want to continue to have this up-to-date, as best we can and appreciate your help.

So, just a few thoughts:

Stewardship Time: Thanks to all who have submitted their pledges for 2018. We are in the home stretch and ask that all pledges be received by Sunday, November 19th. You can send your donation to the church, call Heather with the information, or place it in the basket on Sunday. However you help us complete this process…thanks, very much!

​Saturday Fall Clean-up: Join us on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM to be part of the community and fun of sprucing our church and the grounds! There will be food and fun! Did I mention fun?! 🙂

Sunday Stewardship Meal: I heard today that the Stewardship Committee is preparing a meal for us to celebrate the completion of this time of financial commitments to support us through 2018. Thanks to the committee and thank you all for being there! Good food and hospitality, as always!

Transgender Day of Remembrance Celebration: You are invited to an evening of remembrance and celebration on this important day for the Transgender Community. The ceremony begins at 7:00 PM and will feature members of our choir as part of the program. Please join us. If you have any questions about this, just give me a call.

I look forward to seeing many of you on Sunday, if not before. And for those of you who are traveling at this time, whether to winter homes or on the road to other locales, safe travels and let us hear from you! You can keep up with us on our Sayville Congregational United Church of Christ TV. Worship is live-streamed every Sunday at 10 AM and is available on the site at any time.

My closing comment? Please keep one another in your prayers, and whenever you can, please reach out to those members and friends we don’t always have the chance to see. A phone call or a visit means a great deal…and it changes things in ways beyond our imaginings!

Love to you,
