STEUBEN Sunday is the Sixth Sunday of Easter. The scripture lessons, based on the theme "Welcome by the River," are Acts 16:9-15; Psalm 67; Revelations 21:10, 22-22:5; and John 14:23-29. The Rev. Patricia E. Welch, pastor and teacher, will lead worship during the 11 a.m. service. Large print bulletins will be available.
Members of Steuben Church last month completed a hands-on mission project. They assembled 10 clean-up kits and 13 personal care kits for UCC Disaster Services. The kits were taken to a regional church meeting in Genoa, where about 300 cleanup kits and 300 personal care kits were dedicated to the service of humankind and to the glory of God. The United Church of Christ's Ohio Conference will distribute the kits as part of its disaster recovery response.
