Finding Faith at the Movies is an invitation to explore themes of Lent and faith – resilience, compassion, ethical choices, love and hope - through the medium of film. Movies provide stories that have the power to touch the heart, mind and soul. Movies can motivate and change people and
people can change the world. Each week we will share in a different film (or portion) and discuss the themes and issues that it presents. Join us for a wonderful soup, sandwich and dessert meal together and then stay for the film and discussion.

Church's Search and Call Committee
Search and Call Process Update
The Search and Call Committee for a new Senior Minister is pleased to update you on our progress. After meeting weekly for the past 6 months, we've completed
the Church Profile and it will be available in the Church office for anyone to review. UCC
procedures require that the document not leave the Church Office, but we are more than
willing to accept any feedback that you may have when reading it while you are there.
Soon the document will be submitted to the Connecticut Conference of the United Church
of Christ (of which we are a member). We then follow their procedures for distribution of
our profile and begin the process of evaluating individual candidate profiles that are
submitted to us. We anticipate that we'll receive our first set of profiles from potential
candidates after the first of the year.
We understand that this process is lengthy and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
It will all be worth it in the end when we find just the right person God is calling
The Search and Call Committee
The Search Committee for Senior Minister is Kayla Perkowski, Connor Filkins,
Sarah Mather, Patrick Broun, Amy Torre, Tony Corso, Christine Dorsey, Thilo Koepher, Heidi Bonassar, Bob Westervelt and Debbie Voelker. Susan Phipps, as Assistant Moderator, will serve ex officio.
