Next Sunday (July 19th)

New Message Series Begins

Do you find yourself grieving over the current division in our nation? Do you find yourself concerned about the future? Do you wonder how God figures into all of this? In our upcoming message series, 'Run with Horses', we'll take a close look at a man who grieved over his own nation. The Old Testament prophet Jeremiah remained faithful to God during the most difficult of times. We can learn from his example. 


The Wurdemans to Visit HCC
Missionaries Brice & Amanda Wurdeman, along with their children, will visit HCC during the morning services. Brice, who serves as the director of Windward Islands School of Evangelism (WISE), will offer a brief update on what's going on in the school. HCC has been proud to partner in ministry with WISE over three decades. 


In-Person Children’s Classes to Resume (10:30a)
We are taking the first step towards resuming children’s programming at HCC by offering children’s worship classes during the 10:30a service beginning Sunday, July 19th.

3/3rds Small Groups are Continuing to Form
One of our goals for 2020 is to see a substantial increase in small group participation. These groups meet both ONLINE (On Zoom) and ON-SITE (In Homes). 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 


At-Home Children's Materials
We are most grateful for the great ministry Sandy and Leann continue to provide for kids and parents of HCC. Through the course of this pandemic, they've distributed countless Bible-learning activities and worksheets to help kids stay connected to each other and the Lord.

Four Important Reminders About Our Gatherings
Whether it is online, in the sanctuary (masks optional), in the Fireside Room (masks required), or in the parking lot (FM 99.1), we look forward to worshiping the Lord with you each week. 
Please review these four important reminders as we continue moving up the 'ramp of re-gathering'. 
BE PRAYERFUL (The staff and leadership are sustained by your prayers. Please pray that God will provide the wisdom needed to properly take the next steps, whatever they may be, at the right time and in the right order.)
BE DILIGENT (In the process of re-gathering, one can easily become distracted with the joy of face-to-face conversations, forgetting to observe COVID protocols. During our gatherings, we ask that everyone be diligent in keeping the proper social distance. Granted, avoiding handshakes and maintaining a 6-foot distance doesn't feel 'natural', but we must remain diligent in these matters.)
BE KIND (This is a time in our society where tensions are running high. The body of Christ has an excellent opportunity to model kindness in the church and in the community. The best way to show kindness is to offer others the benefit of the doubt.) 
BE WILLING (Help will be needed in the coming months as we seek to slowly return to a more typical church schedule. As we communicate areas where help is needed, please don’t hesitate to volunteer.)
