NCCC February Newsletter 2020

Before considering what we as a congregation can do, consider some of our accomplishments so far:

1. Involvement in the AAIC and its off-shoot AIIA (Akron Interfaith Immigration Advocates). We presently have four dues-paying members of AAIC, and for two years we have been involved in the Immigrant Christmas Party in North Hill and have taken your donations of winter weather clothing to the party.

2. Our yearly participation in the Fairlawn Hunger Walk.. Last year our church donated a record amount to the Foodbank and provided 22 walkers.

Let’s build on those successes, and keep moving forward.

 

From the Pastor’s Pen – March 2021

…during these 40 days of Lent, we may be wandering through a wilderness and encountering a different set of wild beasts. Invisible viruses are attempting to devour us; the herd of political animosity is growling around us…”

There Is Always Hope – 2/21/21

As we begin our journey through the Lenten season, you are invited to worship with us, and join the celebration of the Lord’s Supper (have some bread and juice available, so we can partake together).

Listen to Him – 2.14.21

On this Transfiguration Sunday (2/14/21), join us for worship. This week, our special musical guest is the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir.

Looking for Jesus – 2/7/21

Special music provided by the Domino Cantes Choir from Brussels, Belgium. In the spirit of ecumenism and interconnectedness, the Domino Cantes Choir is . . . a Polish choir . . . from a Dominican church in Belgium . . . directed by a woman (Kinga Rytel) who teaches at an international school with 60 different nationalities . . . singing a traditional Irish tune . . . to a congregation in the United States.

Lent is not only that time in the church year in which we are summoned to examine ourselves and our everyday preoccupations in order to take stock of the direction of our lives, but it also that time where we are invited to follow Jesus along the journey that took Him to the cross.
