Farewell and Thanks!
Join us this Sunday, August 24th as we say “Farewell & Thanks” to Dan Leniart for his 15 years of service in our REACH Booth, a ministry of the Worship Committee. Dan has not only given us hours of his Sunday mornings running sound and video during worship, but he also has taken classes to learn about video editing and contributed hours each week to prep our recordings for broadcast on local cable TV.
The Reach Booth began as a phone-in service for homebound church members who wanted to listen to the Sunday service. Over the years, it has grown into a wider community outreach through Charter Cable TV Channel 21, which broadcasts our service Tuesdays from 5 to 6p.m. and Fridays from 2 to 3p.m. Now DVD recordings of our sermons and special music get posted on the Worldwide Web as uccbvideo on YouTube. You can access those recordings from the homepage below.
We also extend our
thanks to Larry Vodra and Patrick Downey, who are stepping down as
Reach Booth volunteers this month. We will have a chance to thank
Patrick in worship on August 17th, before he goes off to college in
New Haven on the 19th. Larry will be honored with Dan on August
In this time of change, the Reach Booth will also be reorganizing and rebranding. The new group will be named “The Media Team” and will be getting to work soon preparing to upgrade with equipment that will work more smoothly in this digital age.
If you have technology
skills or interest in working behind the scenes to help support your
church, this is a great opportunity for you to give something new a
try. Please email
email@example.com or speak to John Smallwood-Garcia for more
Our Worship Service is broadcast on Charter Cable TV channel 21 Tuesdays from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. and Fridays from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Thursday Morning Prayers & Bible Study
9:00 to 10:30am in the Church Library
Begin your day with a time of quiet contemplation in a simple ministry of prayer, as we lift up the names of those who are sick or grieving, who are in discernment, or have thanksgiving or celebration to share. We will have a brief Bible study of our weekly lectionary scripture texts, led by Senior Pastor Bryn Smallwood-Garcia. Join us every Thursday, or drop in as you have a need for prayer or a morning free for study.
If you would like more information, speak to one of our pastors at 203-775-1259 or e-mail the church at email@example.com.
