Family Ties

Here at Hanover Missionary Church we believe in mentorship, relationship, living life together, and the value of families learning and playing together. That is why we are launching our reimagined Fall ministry, Family Ties. We are calling on you, the church, to be a FAMILY OF FAMILIES coming together for one evening a week to build into each other’s lives.

With restrictions lifting enough to allow us into the building for gatherings beyond a Sunday morning, we envision a Wednesday night of growth and discovery for people of all ages and stages of life through interest-based G2G groups.

We hope you’ll plan to make Wednesday nights at HMC part of your weekly rhythm.


Bible Study with Pastor DaveThinking? Answering Life’s Five Biggest Questions. Settle into a thoughtful study and spend every fourth week in a time of prayer.

Board Games with Shirley – enjoy an assortment of age-appropriate games, a great option for all ages.

Book Club with Alanna – ‘Black’ by Ted Dekker. An Adrenaline-Laced Epic Where Dreams and Reality Collide. Read aloud and discussion. (12+) Some context may be lost on younger children; some content may be too intense/frightening. Black is an allegorical telling of the story of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden.

Gym Games with Sue McDougall – have some energy to burn? Sign up for some fun in the gym. Prepare for a variety of games and sports. Please bring non-marking shoes to ensure good, clean fun.

Woodworking with Henry, Adam, & James – get your hands on some tools and build something fun with the help of a few skilled craftsmen. Everything you need will be supplied!

Yarn Crafts with Amy & Judy – Did you think yarn was just for scarves? Think again! Comes and let our resident crafters show you new possibilities for that colourful string.

Youth Bible Study – An opportunity to dive a little deeper in the Word (all ages welcome).
