It will be our joy to serve as the host congregation for this year’s UCC Community Thanksgiving Worship at 7:30 P.M. Tuesday, November 20.

Our congregation will share with St. Thomas UCC and St. John’s UCC-Chesterfield in what has become our traditional shared worship service.

An opportunity to participate in a combined choir is being offered to everyone from our three congregations who would like to participate. The Chesterfield Community Ringers will also offer special music during this worship.

We are truly blessed that Rev. Tyler Connoley, our Missouri Mid-South Conference UCC Minister of Search and Call Discernment, will preach.

Offering gifts from this evening will be given to Circle of Concern. A reception including refreshments for all of our guests will follow worship in Fellowship Hall. This occasion thanking God for our blessings is a valued tradition which our area UCC congregations enjoy together.

Come one, come all to the 15th annual Ivy Chapel Blessing of the Animals. That’s right – all! Dogs, cats, ferrets, turtles… creatures of all sorts are welcome for a special afternoon celebrating God’s creatures.

Bring your pets (on a leash or in a cage, please) to Ivy Chapel (620 N. Woods Mill in Chesterfield) between 1 and 3 p.m. on Sept. 19. We’ll have refreshments both for humans and their companions.

This year we will be supporting Bi-State Pet Food Pantry. They work to keep pets and people together by providing pet food to low income families who would otherwise feel compelled to surrender or abandon their pet. In addition to monetary donations, dry pet food (even taped closed partial bags) will be accepted but the following are also desired: toys and treats for cats and dogs, pet beds, leashes, collars, bowls, cat litter and scratching posts, and wet food for both cats and dogs.

Questions? Send us an email and we’ll help you find the answer.

Ivy Members Open their Hearts for Emmaus homes

April 1, 2012 by  
Filed under Featured, News & Announcements

The  annual Open Your Heart dinner-auction benefits residents of Emmaus, a faith-based organization serving more than 250 men and women with developmental disabilities in the St. Louis metropolitan area.  As in the past, this year’s event, held February 4, netted thousands of dollars to help supplement governmental funding for Emmaus.  For every $1 needed to cover program and operating expenses, there’s a 15 cent shortfall in state support.  The Emmaus Foundation is charged with raising funds to close the gap between government payments and actual costs.  The 2012 OYH gala raised just over $50,000.  Attending from Ivy Chapel UCC were Ronn and Dottie Foster; Rod and Judy Hertenstein; Carl and Marsha Ramey; Annie and Shyam Sampath; Nancy Litzinger; and Nancy Hawkins.

The first Emmaus homes were established in 1893 by members of the German Evangelical Church in Marthasville, Mo., to care for individuals with epilepsy and developmental disabilities.  Currently Emmaus operates nearly 50 homes throughout local communities and on its two campuses in St. Charles and Marthasville.  In 2011, Ivy Chapel UCC ‘adopted’ Ross House, a community home in Creve Coeur where six Emmaus residents live.  Ivy members and Ross residents are developing new relationships through this pilot partnership.

Thank you to Brandi Brown Photography for capturing the event in pictures, and for sharing the photos with us.
