Pastor's Book Group

Regina’s Calcaterra memoir, Etched in Sand, is an inspiring and triumphant coming-of-age story of tenacity and hope. This Long Island based memoir will is the October selection for the Pastor's Book Group. The group will meet on Wednesday, November 29, 7:30 PM at Dot and Krista's home.
 
From the publisher: Regina Calcaterra is a successful lawyer, New York State official, and activist. Her painful early life, however, was quite different. Regina and her four siblings survived an abusive and painful childhood only to find themselves faced with the challenges of the foster-care system and intermittent homelessness in the shadows of Manhattan and the Hamptons.
 
A true-life rags-to-riches story, Etched in Sand chronicles Regina’s rising above her past, while fighting to keep her brother and three sisters together through it all.

Joys and Concerns

Congratulations to Dominick Miciotta and Jason Smith on the baptism of their daughter, Alice Faith,  this past Sunday in worship. 

Congratulations to Anne Canadeo who was honored as a "Woman of Distinction" by Assembly member Andrew Raia. She was recognized for her outstanding volunteer efforts that enhance the lives of so many people in need throughout our community.

Hurricane Relief Efforts

 
The devastating effects of the recent hurricanes require the assistance of the entire nation to help people in need. You may assist by giving through the United Church of Chirst Disaster Ministries. Your donations will go directly to help with disaster relief where it is most needed.

You may give by:

Donate directly on the UCC website for hurricane relief

Send a check to our church made out to The Congregational Church of Huntington, designated for hurricane relief, and we will send all donations to the UCC relief program.

Volunteers Needed

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.

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.
