BULLETIN – July 16, 2017

We continue to raise money to pay for our roof repair. As of Friday, July 14, we have raised a total of $51,900.62 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.

Our summer office hours are 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

Because of this shift in office hours, if you require anything to be included in the weekly bulletin, this information must be submitted to the church office no later than Wednesday at noon. Thank you for your understanding.


Today is Building Connections Sunday! Plan to stick around after the service to enjoy our Strawberry Social!

All committee head leaders are asked to attend a meeting on Sunday, July 30 following the service in the upper room. A light lunch will be provided.

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 available in the foyer. We also now offer online registration through our website! Follow the U18 links below the MINISTRIES button in the main menu.


Marcia Burt is hosting a new G2G Bible Study group on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 beginning on July 19. The group will be working through ‘The Life You’ve Always Wanted’ by John Ortberg. Please connect with her if you’re interested or have questions.

We have a need for cookies and squares. If you’re able to donate a couple dozen, please drop them off at the church by Thursday, July 20.

There’s still time! If you’re thinking about being a volunteer on the Summer Slam VBS team this year, let Pastor Amos or Marie know and mark your calendar for a leaders meeting on Sunday, August 13 after the service in Auditorium A/B. Lunch will be provided.

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

Summer Slam Snacks! Once again, we’re asking for your help to fill up the snack coffers for the week of Summer Slam VBS. See the list on the table in the foyer and sign up to donate an item.

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.


Congratulations to Graham Burt and Robyn Ikert who were married yesterday in Waterloo! May God bless you as you being your journey together.

Congratulations to Pastor Connie who became a grandmother on July 5 when her daughter Rebecca and husband Joshua welcomed little Rhea Constance!


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 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
