HCC Update (August 6, 2020)


HCC is alive and well amid the global coronavirus pandemic!

  • We celebrate the baptism of Cole and Jana Nethers on Sunday afternoon, Aug 2nd. We have had several baptisms in the last few weeks. God continues to bless our mission to love God, love people, and make disciples—followers of Jesus!
  • Stand Strong: This week a number of our 4-6 Grade students (Aug 3-4), and our K-3 Grade Students (Aug 5) traveled to Round Lake Christian Camp to learn more about following Jesus and to have fun, too. 
  • Teens at Round Lake: Today (Aug 6) a group of our teens is at Round Lake for a retreat. They are enjoying the beautiful weather we are having today in the most beautiful setting, Round Lake Christian Camp.


You Can Help!

As we continue our transition back into the building we have several new needs. One great area of need is with Worship Tech for in-person and online worship. If you are interested you can learn more and signup HERE. There are a few other needs as well; Sunday Morning Sanitizing (in between services), First Impressions (hospitality—café, welcome team, ushers), and Preschool/Elementary Ministry. You can signup HERE.

This Coming Sunday (August 9th)

  • David Linn continues our message series called Run with Horses with a look at Jeremiah 12:5, Stay in the Race. Jeremiah served the Lord in an era of political, moral, and spiritual chaos. His experiences and example can offer insight into how we as believers can face today's uncertain times.
  • In-Person Children’s Classes for preschool and elementary kids will be held during the 10:30a service.
  • The Nursery is available during both services for parents of infants as a cry room, but it is not staffed.


Midweek Bible Study (In the room or on Zoom)
Join us LIVE in the Fireside Room OR on Zoom. You can meet in-person for our midweek Bible Study Wednesday at 6:30p in the Fireside Room. If you are not comfortable attending in-person you can also join us LIVE via Zoom by CLICKING ON THIS LINK at 6:30p on Wednesday.  We are doing at verse by verse study of the Gospel of John.

The Path
The Path: Session One, Connect
, begins Sun, Aug 23, 9a in Room 116. Learn what it means to follow Jesus and how to be involved in the life of the church. The Path: Session One, Connect will meet Sundays through Sep 20.
 
Landmark Fund Offering
Sunday, Aug 30 will be our next 5th Sunday Landmark Fund Offering. Did you know we can potentially reduce our building debt to below $1 million on Aug 30th? When the Landmark Fund was established in Nov 2011, our mortgage debt was $3.1 million (down from $3.4 million originating in 2004.). We have made great progress thanks to your faithful generosity! Please pray and plan for a great offering on Aug 30th.
 
3/3rds Small Groups are Continuing to Form
One of our goals for 2020 is to see an increase of 100 small group participants. These groups meet both ONLINE (On Zoom) and ON-SITE (In Homes, etc.). Joining a small group is an excellent way to find a deeper connection with God's Word and with God's people.  CLICK HERE TO CONNECT TO A SMALL GROUP

We are most grateful for your continued generous support of HCC during a difficult time. Our giving has remained strong, and we continue to meet our budget. If you are not already doing so, now is a great time to consider our online giving option. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
