 Worship Calendar

April 29: Bobker Baptism
We will celebrate the baptism of Tristan Bobker, daughter of David and Holly (Rathbun). 

May 6: Hot Buttons
Pastor Mark begins a sermon series on hot button cultural issues. This first sermon in the series will be on human sexuality and the Bible.

May 13: Agape Meal
This intergenerational service will be an Apape Meal in which the sanctuary set-up with tables and chairs and we eat a meal as our communion service. 

A yoga class is being offered to all adult church members on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Bonnie and Kristin bring their long-standing love of yoga and their instructor Marie Cruz to the CCH community. Yoga offers many positive benefits to the body, mind and spirit through the practice of meditation and mindfulness. As another busy holiday season approaches, yoga can help us find the balance we all  seek. The class is $20.00 per session. For more details call Bonnie or Kristin at 516.922.9525 or Sue at the Church office.

All-Church Clean-up Day

Saturday, April 28
9:00-noon

You are invited to help fix, clean and organize the church to keep it looking as good as possible. There are jobs for all ages and abilities. It is also a wonderful way to get to know more people in the church.

Joys and Concerns

Thank you to the Auction committee who all worked so hard to create such a fun and successful auction this past Saturday. The income and expenses are still being tallied, but it may be the most financially successful auction ever. A huge than you to Pat Bausch, Bonnie Dawkins, Glen Grayson, Peter Lassen, Doug Munch, Paul Prentiss, Will Safer, Don Sheldon, Ronnie Todaro, and Linda Wright

We will hold Terrence Sheldon in our prayer as he is in Boston for a 4-6 week treatment program for his pain syndrome. If you would like to send a card to Terrence it is best to send it to their home as he will be there each weekend.

Last week's Congregator omitted several people who volunteered for HIHI this winter. We offer our gratitude to Gail and Fred Engleking and their son-in-law Frank, to Glen Grayson and Paul Prentiss, and to Bonnie Dawkins and Kristin Harper.

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:   Peace and Plenty is in need of plastic grocery bags to deliver their lunches each week. Bring any extra to the church. 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.
