Pastor's Book Group

The book group does not meet in July and August, but you can still do the reading. The September discussion book will be "The Underground Railroad," by Colson Whitehead.

"The Underground Railroad," is "Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, the #1 New York Times bestseller from Colson Whitehead, a magnificent tour de force chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South."

You have plenty of time, so start reading!

June is Food Pantry Month

All year round we collect donations for the Northport Food Pantry. In the summer we also raise organic vegetables for them. This June, though, the Congregational Church of Huntington is the congregation of the month at the food pantry. This means that we are challenged to make an extra effort to stock the shelves and to provide volunteers.

There are times available to volunteer at the pantry in the Northport Presbyterian church. No experience necessary. They are open from 10-noon, Monday-Thursday and you can sign up on the bulletin board at church.

Ancora Imparo Cancelled

Due to a scheduling error the Ancora Imparo program on Estate Planning that was scheduled for June 21 has had to be postponed. Watch for a new date in the fall.

Worship Calendar

June 18: David Broome Sunday
June 25: Summer Sunday begin and church school beach picnic

Volunteers Needed

Summer Garden Project "Gardener of the Week"
Each summer we raise organic vegetables at the church that are donated to the Northport Food Pantry. This year the Outreach ministry is asking members to sign-up to tend and harvest the garden for one week in the summer. See the sign-up sheet at the church.

Northport Food Pantry
We collect food for the Northport Food pantry each week at our church. Please place donations in the box by the church office. June is our month to be the congregation of the month at the food pantry. Please sign up to volunteer to help on Mon-Thurs, from 10-noon.

Peace and Plenty Food Outreach:  You are invited to help make sandwiches and prepare snacks for children in Huntington. Peace and Plenty will meets on Mondays at 6:30 PM. They are also in need of donations of lunch meats and cheeses, fruit and healthy snacks.

Cooks Needed for the Peace & Plenty program
We're looking for a few volunteers who can help us send the Tri CYA trays of
cooked food such as baked ziti, chicken and rice, pasta with meatballs or meat sauce, etc. Most children at the Tri CYA receive free breakfast and lunch at school during the school year and rely on the Tri CYA  for at least one nutritious meal. We try to support
that effort with some substantial dishes, beyond sandwiches.  Some of the food may also be sent to individuals unable to get out to food pantries and living with food
shortages.
If you would like to help  please contact Anne: acanadeo@aol.com.
