MCC Hartford – OCTOBER Calendar of Events (see attached)
Sunday October 1: 2 important things to know!
will be designating the second offering collection to GLAD, the legal advocates for and defenders of LGBTQI justice and equality.
Supporting GLAD couldn’t be more important than right now, with our civil/human rights under attack. It is GLAD
that is currently suing the government on behalf of Transgender military service members. This offering,
along with a donation from the church outreach funds, will be presented at our anniversary dinner on November 4th
---when we will present this check to GLAD along with the “Spirit of Justice”
2. This is the deadline to submit an application for one of the 2
open positions on the Board of Directors and the open position for Alternate Lay Delegate. Applications
may be emailed to the church at email@example.com or presented in hard copy to the church office, no later than this Sunday.
8: New Member Reception and Birthday Celebration: Hope you will join us as we celebrate the reception of our newest members---Colleen
Kruger and J.T.Atkinson! Following service, we have a reception in their honor and (of course, as is tradition!)
also sing a birthday song for those born in October…extra excitement!
Friday October 13--Somewhere Coffee House from 7-9pm Join us for some fun and fellowship.
Sunday October 15 – Annual Congregational Meeting After worship service from 11:30-noon.
This is the day each year we set aside to do the business of the Church. We will hear reports from
the various ministries, approve our 2018 budget, vote in 2 new Board Members, and set our vision for the coming year.
We ask that all members attend.
Sunday October 29: Dinner Church: Have you attended an MCC dinner church? Rev. Mel Pace will be co-leading
with a UCC pastor a dinner church experience at MCC Hartford starting at 6pm. Churches from the Hartford
area will also be invited. Donations will be gratefully accepted. Hope you can join
us as we share this new experience---having worship around the table over dinner! Come and taste how good
Monday October 30: McKinney Shelter Dinner, a time each month we help feed the homeless as God’s
‘hands and feet’ in our community as we serve our hungry neighbors.
Radical Bible Study: 11am-noon.
All are welcome as we explore the Bible in new and radical ways!
Food for the body, love for the soul: We are collecting OATMEAL during the month of
September--to support the Hands on Hartford Food Pantry. Remember, all non-perishable food is welcome!
Thank you for helping to feed those who are hungry and extending our communion table to the homes of those in need.
