Loaves and Fishes -- Feb. 20
LOAVES AND FISHES - February 20, 2015.
For over 15 years, our church has been serving the Loaves and Fishes Ministry in Hartford. Loaves and Fishes is a charitable organization that provides human services to the poor in Hartford. These services include education, food, clothing, counseling and economic development programs. This is an opportunity to help people that are less than 10 miles away from our church!
The winter hats are knitted by our own Creative Pastimes small group. Donations can be left in the church office anytime between now and February 20. If you are interested in a real face to face opportunity to minister to disadvantaged people, then join us that day and request everyone to donate some toiletries and/or socks to this worthwhile ministry.
Book Club -- Feb. 22
"Just Come Anyway"
Here are the details of the next “Just Come Anyway” meeting. All women who love to read are invited to attend. We gather at various women’s homes about once a month. We each bring a snack to share, have a lively discussion of the book of the month and enjoy fellowship and some laughs together!
Come every time, come once in a while, come if you have read the whole book, come even if you have not finished the book. "Just Come Anyway" ... it is fun and a great way to get to know others!

Website Assistants Needed
|Help Spread the News…|
The Website Committee is looking for volunteers to share in updating and adding to our website on a weekly basis. Each week after the Connections Newsletter is published we need people willing to enter the new information into the Upcoming Events page of the website. Also if changes occur during the week to then update the pages and remove from the site any old or expired articles. This process takes between 1 – 3 hours a week, depending upon how many new articles there are in Connections. On average time spent is less than 3 hours per week.
We are seeking volunteers with good computer skills, knowledge of the MS Office Suite, access to a high speed DSL or Cable Modem (daytime use of the church computers is an option for this) and a desire to learn how to update pages on the website. A training class(or two) by the Website Staff members will be offered on the website software language called Joomla, which is basically a drag and drop language as far as weekly updates are concerned. The Website Staff will be available to assist you with any questions, problems, or technical issues.

WE ARE CONTINUING OUR GIFT CARD PROGRAM!
You can purchase gift cards from our church . . . we have a large variety of vendors. The gift cards are purchased at face value (no extra cost to you). Each gift card gives our church a set percentage which will go towards the Mission Fund.
It's Easy: Just fill out the attached order form and return with your payment. (More order forms are available at our communication board.) The gift cards that we have in stock will be given out immediately and the others will be ordered the first Monday of the month and will be in the following week. So plan ahead!
It's Convenient: No need to run around to the stores to pick up gift cards. Just stop in the office during the week or see Deb Draizen or Evelyn Griswold at Coffee Hour on Sundays. Dunkin Donuts, Panera's, Starbucks, Amazon, Kohl's, Stop & Shop, to just name a few.
It's a Way to Give: Most of us buy gift cards on a regular basis. With this program, the proceeds come from the vendors with no extra cost to us. So buy your gift cards from us and at the same time support the many missions of our church.
