BULLETIN – June 18, 2017

We continue to raise money to pay for our roof repair. As of Friday, June 16, we have raised a total of $50,190.62 towards our ultimate goal of $115,000. Thank you for your ongoing generosity towards this need.

Prayer is still happening! Plan to join in before the service at 9:30 a.m. at the front of the sanctuary.

Beginning in July we will be reducing our office hours to Monday-Thursday, 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. The office will be closed on Fridays. To reach a pastor on those days, please use the Pastoral Care Line 519-379-1752


It’s a Building Connections Sunday! Plan to stay after the service today and enjoy a slice of pie before heading off to your Father’s Day celebrations.

Our annual HMC Budget Meeting is this Thursday, June 22 at 7:00 p.m. We are aiming for the meeting to end by 8:00—8:30 p.m. at the latest. Members and regular attendees are encouraged to attend. Before Thursday, please think about who should be nominated for the Nomination Committee. Information about this role is available in the foyer. If you have questions you would like answered in the Ministry Council report, please get those to Ron DeVisser ASAP.

The Men in Action invite you to join in on a Family Canoe Trip on Sunday, June 25 following the service. There will be two options: 1 is a two hour trip and 2 is a four hour trip – both ending up at Bill Kranenburg’s camp for a BBQ supper. Children, grandchildren, and wives are welcome to participate. See the sign up in the foyer.

Blue Jay’s Once again, a bus will be going to Toronto to take in a game this summer. Mark your calendars for July 29. The $50 tickets are available in the foyer on a first come, first served basis.

Summer Slam VBS ‘Love Your Neighbour’ will be August 21-25 from 9 a.m. to noon for children in SK-grade 6. Forms are now available in the foyer!


If you’re thinking about being a volunteer on the Summer Slam VBS team this year, let Pastor Amos or Marie know and plan to come for a brief meeting after the service on June 25.

—Please save your old newspapers for Summer Slam crafts. These can be dropped off at the office during office hours.—

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.

We are looking for volunteers to join our tech crew! If you’d be willing to sit in the sound booth once a month and run the computer (song, announcement, and sermon slides) please let the church office know.


Please pray for Rob Fletcher, (son of Chuck & Carol, father of Tiffany) who is in the hospital with a tumour on his spine. Please pray for the doctors as they work to minimize his pain, and for the family as they navigate this time.

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. Alternatively, if you’d like to receive daily prayer reminders delivered to your email, you can sign up at eepurl.com/cM9ZVj
