Human Relations Day

Sunday, January 14, 2024

There are many today who are living within the margins of society, those struggling to survive. Over and over Jesus served people like this. To continue the ministry of Jesus, Human Relations Day calls all of us to participate in helping all of God’s children realize their potential through faith-based volunteer programs, community developers, and programs that work with at-risk teens.

Offering envelopes are available at the entrance to the sanctuary and at the Welcome

Center. Give your gift any time during January or February with your personal check or by electronic giving designating an amount for Human Relations Day



January Food Collection for Spark's Food Cupboard

Dear Church Members,

Throughout January, Spark's Food Cupboard will collect essential food items to support the Hamburg community. Your contributions make a significant impact on those who rely on this assistance.

Items to Purchase:

  • Canned fruit (any type, preferably flip-top cans)

A designated basket labeled "SPARKS" will be placed in the Gathering Space for your convenience. Kindly place your donated food items in this basket and refrain from placing them directly in the cupboard outside Sparks. This arrangement will help manage the food inventory.

Your generosity and support are deeply appreciated. Let's come together to make a difference!

Thank you, Wendy and Dave Spaulding



The Church office is glad to announce that services going forward will be streamed via YouTube Live, in addition to the current Facebook Live services. You can access the Youtube live stream on our Youtube Channel, or directly on our church website homepage.

Is someone here moving toward the twilight of life and fearful of that which we call death?

Why be afraid? God is able.

Is someone here on the brink of despair because of the death of a loved one, the breaking of a marriage, or the waywardness of a child?

Why despair? God is able to give us the power to endure that which cannot be changed.

Is someone here anxious because of bad health?

Why be anxious? Come what may, God is able.

Surely God is able.
