Bulletin – August 20, 2017


It’s Building Connections Sunday! Plan to stick around after the service for a time of food and fellowship.

Summer Slam VBS ‘Love Your Neighbour’ begins tomorrow, August 21-25 from 9 a.m. to noon for children in SK-grade 6. Forms are available in the foyer and at the door. We also now offer online registration through our website! Follow the U18 links below the MINISTRIES button in the main menu.


Youth, do you sing or play an instrument and have a heart for worship? Mike Harloff is hoping to build a youth team to help with Sunday morning worship. If you’re interested or have questions, please connect with Mike at mikeharloff@hotmail.com

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.


Thank you for investing in our Summer Slam VBS ministry! Because of the generosity of this congregation, the snack list has been filled! Please remember that grapes and apples need to be dropped off today.


Continue to express your thanks and praise for God’s presence, provisions, and blessing as we journey through life.

Please be praying for one another during the week, inviting God to come and shape/prepare our hearts for His glory.

Please pray for those with health concerns—Bob Crawford, June Lamont, Rick Pake, Jim Camm, Nat Camm, and Rob Davidson.

Please pray for those grieving the passing of a loved one—Joanne Koeslag, Marie & Klaas Inthof, Betty Viner, and Bill & Diane VanderWal.

Please be praying for the Summer Slam VBS Ministry throughout the week. Pray for the leaders, that they be patient, godly examples, and for the children who attend, that they experience the love of Jesus.

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

New Daily Bread booklets are available today in the foyer. Grab yours at the Reception Desk.
