HMC EVENTS

Please join us for a Worship & Prayer Night for Monday, February 24. 7-8 p.m.

The Teen Challenge Choir will be coming to bless us next week on Sunday, March 1. There will be a special goodwill offering collected in support of their ministry.

Our 3rd Annual Chilli Cook-Off is on Sunday March 1 following the Teen Challenge service. We are taking only TEN entries, so if you want to participate, please sign up at the Welcome Centre today — start thinking about what going to make your pot stand out from the rest!

March is going to be Camp Month at HMC. Each week will feature a focus on a different avenue of camp ministry. If you’re not longing for summer yet, this will really get you in the mood!

We’re planning a complimentary continental breakfast on Easter Sunday (April 12) so plan to come early that morning to enjoy some fruit and baked goods – stay tuned for more details.

OPPORTUNITIES

We are still looking for volunteers to fill a few gaps. If you’d be willing to serve on the greeter or usher team, or if hospitality is something near and dear to your heart, please talk with Pastor Kristina.

An adult helper is needed in the preschool place on the last Sunday of each month. If you’re willing to volunteer, please talk to Marie Bezeau.

Moms and Tots needs more adult volunteers to help with childcare on Wednesday mornings. Connect with Alicia DeVisser if you can help.

OTHER EVENTS

The Hanover Ministerial 2020 Lenten Service & Lunch series kicks off on Wednesday, March 4 from 12-1 p.m. at St. Matthews Lutheran Church. Pastor Dave will be bringing the message on that day. A freewill offering will be collected to support The Light on Main, Hanover & Area Refugee Committee, and Hope Grey-Bruce Services.

Can you help? HMC is to provide squares and cookies. Please sign up at the Welcome Centre to bring in a tray by 9:30 a.m. on March 4. Two helpers are also needed for that day. Connect with Carolyn Austin for more information.

ENGAGE WITH SCRIPTURE

It’s the perfect time to set a goal to dive into scripture. Pastor Kristina is inviting you to join her on a daily Bible reading plan. Go to shorter.at/ehnZ8 to accept her invitation to The Bible Project.

ONE TO ONE – Our goal at HMC is to be generations who follow Jesus together and one way we want to do that is through a “one to one” reading plan. Those who sign up will be matched with one other person in a different age group and given a short reading plan to read throughout the week. You will then be able to spend 10-20 minutes once a week with the person you are paired with to talk about what you read and discuss what you are learning. This will be a short term commitment with the chance to make it a long term one. Will you commit to trying this out for a couple of months and seeing what God does? Pick up a form at the Welcome Centre or chat with Pastor Kristina for more information.

IN THE COMMUNITY

The Hanover Fire Department would like to invite you to participate in their Alarm for Life Program. The Hanover Fire Dept. will visit your home to test and inspect your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. This is a free program. If you would like to participate, please contact FPO Rob Hagan, 519-364-2780 ext. 1223, fpo@hanover.ca

BRANCHING OUT

Our Warming Centre runs every Thursday from noon to 2:00, providing a place for those in need of warmth and company to enjoy a hot bowl of soup and friendly conversation. We are accepting donations of non-perishable food items that can be handed out to those who attend. These items can be dropped off by the main office in the foyer. Also needed are donations of bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo, as well as knitted goods. As the weather is colder these days, we are very low on gloves and mitts. We appreciate your support and selfless giving to this ministry! If you’d like to volunteer for this great ministry opportunity, whether it’s to hang out with our guests, to serve or clean up, or to make soup, please connect with Marcia Burt.

Hanover Heights is looking for donations of small hats, socks, and gloves/mittens that can be distributed to children who don’t have the necessary means to stay warm. These items can be dropped off outside the main office.

What if we could fill the whole floor under our foyer tree with food??! Can you help? Our Warming Centre needs to fill their pantry with food to hand out to those who attend each Thursday. You can be a Christmas blessing by bringing in easy to prepare non-perishables. Many of the people we’re serving through the Warming Centre don’t have access to a full kitchen. Consider bringing items that can be heated in a microwave. Cans of hearty soups, stews, or chili are perfect for a cold winters day. Kraft Dinner is also a good option. Let’s be generous this Christmas! Bring a donation with you on Christmas Eve.

What if we could fill the whole floor under our foyer tree with food??! Can you help? Our Warming Centre needs to fill their pantry with food to hand out to those who attend each Thursday. You can be a Christmas blessing by bringing in easy to prepare non-perishables. Many of the people we’re serving through the Warming Centre don’t have access to a full kitchen. Consider bringing items that can be heated in a microwave. Cans of hearty soups, stews, or chili are perfect for a cold winters day. Kraft Dinner is also a good option. Let’s be generous this Christmas!

Our collection as of Friday, December 13.

HMC EVENTS

Registration for the second term of the MIDWEEK Meal is open. Space is limited so don’t wait to sign up. We would love you to join us for this great ministry!

Take a little time-out this Christmas and spend some time reflecting. We’ll be setting up special reflection stations on Wednesday, December 18 to help you focus on what really matters. Come out anytime between 10 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. or 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

We’re Building Cocoa Connections on Sunday, December 22. Plan to stick around after the service for a special hot chocolate station.

Christmas Eve at HMC will begin with a social hour from 5:30-6:30 p.m. with warm cider and Christmas cookies. Our service will follow at 6:30 p.m. Can you provide some treats? Please drop them off on Sunday, December 22 or Monday December 23.

PRAYER REQUESTS

Our Condolences to John & Karen Winkles on the passing of John’s sister-in-law, Gerta. Please remember the family in your prayers as they grieve.

Our Condolences to Annie & Aleda Shantz on the loss of their brother, Abe. Please remember the family in your prayers as they mourn.

Please continue to pray for our Warming Centre. Pray for the energy and health of our volunteers and for continuing our aim to build trust and show the love of Jesus with the folks who attend each week. Also, please pray for those who could benefit from the Warming Centre but haven’t come to us yet.

This Christmas season, be praying that it would be a beautiful time of connection, reflection, and gratitude for families, friends, and individuals throughout our community.

BRANCHING OUT

Our Warming Centre is up and running every Thursday from noon to 2:00, providing a place for those in need of warmth and company to enjoy a hot bowl of soup and friendly conversation. We are accepting donations of non-perishable food items that can be handed out to those who attend. These items can be dropped off under the Christmas tree in the foyer. Also needed are donations of bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo, as well as knitted goods. As the weather is colder these days, we are very low on gloves and mitts. We appreciate your support and selfless giving to this ministry! If you’d like to volunteer for this great ministry opportunity, whether it’s to hang out with our guests, to serve or clean up, or to make soup, please connect with Marcia Burt. There is a soup sign up at the Welcome Centre.

Hanover Heights is looking for donations of small hats, socks, and gloves/mittens that can be distributed to children who don’t have the necessary means to stay warm. These items can be dropped off outside the main office.

The Hanover Salvation Army needs volunteers to stand on their Christmas Kettles within our community for two hour shifts between 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. until December 23. If you have a couple of hours and would like to help, please call the main office 519-364-3450 or Jennifer at 226-568-1761.

OPPORTUNITIES

Are you doing some Christmas baking? We want to serve cookies on Christmas Eve. Save us some and drop them off on Sunday, December 22 or Monday, December 23.

We are still looking for volunteers to fill a few gaps. If you’d be willing to serve on the usher team, or if hospitality is something near and dear to your heart, please talk with Pastor Kristina.

We are thrilled by the donation of a stand mixer that came in last week – thank you! We would love to add at least one more. Because of all the baking that’s been going on in our kitchen for the MIDWEEK MEALS they will get a lot of use. If you have a stand mixer, or even a good hand mixer that you’re no longer using, we would be glad to take it off your hands. Talk to Pastor Kristina if you can help.

WORDS OF THANKS

Alan & Sue McDougall wish to extend their thanks for all the prayers, food, good wishes, and cards that you’ve sent their way. Praise God that Sue is doing well through her treatment and they continue to rely on God’s faithfulness as they make this journey along with their family. Thank you for your continued prayers.
