Mom’s and Tot’s is looking for someone without small children to take on a leadership role within the ministry: to help organize childcare and coordinate events/ideas (i.e. leading craft days, cooking days, arranging a Bible study), while still including and incorporating the ideas and needs of the mother’s who attend.

Please pray for Pastor Jason & Erika, Shawna & Elijah as they move into a new chapter of life. Thank God for Jason’s educational opportunities. Pray for a ministry placement for Erika. Pray for wisdom as they consider questions of moving or staying, where they will worship as a family, and schooling for the kids.

Our Condolences to Paul & Alison West on the passing of Paul’s aunt, Lois Gwyneth Jones on May 25. Please remember the family in your prayers as they grieve.

Please continue to remember the Pastoral Search Team in your prayers. Pray for wisdom and discernment as they make important decisions regarding the future of HMC.

There is a booklet of prayer requests specific to the needs of HMC. It is being printed in small numbers with simple formatting so your suggestions can be added. We want it to be a dynamic, living, changing document. These booklets are available in the foyer, or by speaking with Karen Schmalz or Brian Austin.
