Music Corner: The New Century Hymnal

by Eleanor Guare

by Hal Parker As many of you know, I was a free-lance church musician before I came to GUCC in 2010. Hardwick UCC was one of the churches I served, and it was there I met Roger and Judy Waible and the New Century Hymnal (NCH). There were so many things I liked about it […]

Note from the Pastor

by Eleanor Guare

The new year is upon us. If I’m honest, I must confess that I have my doubts about whether 2022 will bring much new or not. So far, it is bearing a rather strong resemblance to 2021. If the new year is upon us, that means we are in the season of Epiphany in the […]

Love like that will inevitably bring us into conflict with the economic systems that daily try to convince us that God has not supplied enough to meet the needs of […]

Animal Companions

by Eleanor Guare

With each issue of the newsletter, we feature a reader’s favorite pet. This one is from Donna Lee, about her dog Sophia. “Sophia is now gone.  I miss her faithful companionship so much.  She was so much more than a pet to me.  She was my last daily connection to my husband Bob, who wanted to […]

In the Language of Flowers

by Eleanor Guare

During the period of virtual worship services, we have been sustained by the presence of Ed, Hal, and Kyle.

As a gesture intended to acknowledge her love […]
