Dear church family,
The 275th Anniversary Committee is happy to send you this link to a
Pastor Susan invited clergy that have been part of WUC history to offer
video messages to commemorate our anniversary celebration.
The following individuals responded:
Rev. Barbara Schenk, Rev. Bruce MacLeod, Rev. Barbara Turner Delisle and
Rev. John McCollough (who will be returning to WUC to preach during this
Sunday's special anniversary service).

featuring all of their messages.
!! CHOIR !!
I'm looking for two additional ringers for our Handbell Choir. We're
looking for ones who have some familiarity with reading music and who
can commit to weekly rehearsals and playing on the first Sunday of each
(with occasional "extras").
Super Saturday at Minnechaug High School
On March 18th, the Rhode Island,
Connecticut, and Mass Conferences of the UCC will be holding an all day
educational event at Minnechaug High School. There are some great
workshops that I believe leadership would really find helpful:
1. Mental Health Awareness and the church
2. Simplifying Church Structure and Navigating the Nonsense
3. Building a Welcoming congregation
4. Using the new UCC Local Church Profile—great for the search committee
5. Show Me Your Faith—Show Me Your Wallet
6. Think-tanking Worship
7. Taking Ministry Digital
8. What We’ve learned from Vital Congregations
9. Healthy Stewardship—We Need to Talk?
And many more!
This is right on our doorstep and a great opportunity. Here is a link to the brochure, and I hope you’ll come.
When we have five people signed up, we get a discount…so let me know soon, and we’ll get this going.
Also, Hampden Association reimburses the church for our registration fee—so there is no expense to you or the church.
Complete your form, give it to the church office, and I’ll sign everyone up…and we’ll go from there.
Not sure you want to go to a class, but would like to volunteer? That is also an option.
They need people to greet and people to direct folks to the right room in the morning and afternoon.
Either way, i hope you’ll consider this!
Thank you for all you do!
