The United Church of Hinesburg, with roots in the American Baptist, United Church of Christ and United Methodist churches, welcomes visitors and participants from all faith backgrounds into our community. You do not need to be an official member of the congregation to attend services or volunteer with our social service programs.
During their service trip to Puerto Rico next week, the high school youth and chaperones of HYP will be working with the Hurricane Relief Team of Palmas Community Church. To support the ongoing efforts of PCC to provide basic provisions as well as help those affected by the hurricane to return their homes to secure conditions, send checks payable to "Palmas Community Church" to: PMB 347 STE 130, 295 Palmas Inn Way, Humacao, PR 00791. Indicate on the check that it is for "hurricane relief".

Sunday, June 24th ~ 11:15am ~ Practicing God-talk will meet during coffee hour to discuss a mission for spiritual health using “How Evangelicals Became White” by The Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, dean of Episcopal Divinity School in Sojourners (April 2018). America’s Pilgrim and Puritan forebears “believed themselves descendants of an ancient Anglo-Saxon people, ‘free from the taint of intermarriages,’ who uniquely possessed high moral values and an ‘instinctive love for freedom.’” An opposite biblical theme: “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). Read the article online or print it out at https://bit.ly/2HhQXoA. Copies of the full article will be available on the back table in the sanctuary as you leave on June 17th and 24th. On June 24th, get your copy and snack and meet in Classroom 1 for 20-25 minutes of discussion.
Friday, June 29th ~ 5:30pm-7:00pm ~ Join us for our monthly free community dinner hosted by the UCH Church Council. All donations will support the VT Foodbank backpack program.
