Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!
Please note that our office will be closed on Monday, October 8 for Thanksgiving Monday.
There is a Ladies Social on Tuesday, October 9 from 7:00-9:00 in A/B. Come and hear guest speaker, Kathie Wright. She is excited about the different artistic gifts God has given her and wants to share the joy and pure fun of self expression through art.
Young at Heart will gather on Thursday, October 11 at 11:00. Roberta Arnold from Operation Christmas Child will be sharing about the ministry. Tickets for the hot Thanksgiving luncheon are available in the foyer for $17.
HMC MISSIONS SUMMIT. We have a whole weekend of mission-related events planned, October 19-21. On Friday, October 19 the MPT is hosting a private dinner just for our missionaries. On Saturday, bring the whole family out for an interactive ‘day in the life of a missionary’ event from 3:00-5:00 p.m. On Sunday, Kevin & Michelle Weppler, missionaries in Romania will share during the morning service. A Missions Fair will follow in the gym. Come and learn about where and how our missionaries are spreading the love of Jesus across the world.
Fall Regional OASIS Rally: a gathering especially for seniors. Saturday, October 27 at 10:00 a.m. at HMC. Hear Roger and Shirley Pavy in concert and listen to Llyod and Marie Fretz as they bring a message of encouragement. A freewill offering will be taken for the concert and ministry of OASIS. A catered lunch will follow for $12. For reservations, please call Phyllis Klein 519-364-6826. Volunteers are needed to help with set up, serving, and clean up. Please let the office know if you can help. All volunteers receive a free meal.
Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes will be available next week.
U18 Volunteers Needed! We are looking for Sunday morning volunteers to help with the program downstairs, as well as female leaders for our Friday night senior youth program. If you’re able to assist with either of these, please connect with Pastor Amos.
We have a lovely new welcome centre thanks to the hard work of some volunteer handymen. We would like to see this space used on Sunday morning as a spot where newcomers can go to learn more about HMC, what we stand for, and what we have to offer. We want to see this station manned by some warm and friendly faces. Cindy Dietz will be championing this ministry, but is looking for some help. If you’d be willing to stand (or sit) at this desk before and after a Sunday service, please connect with Cindy, the church office, or Pastor Dave.
Congratulations to Brian and Carolyn Austin on the birth of their granddaughter, Piper Hope, on September 30.
Welcome to the team! We’re pleased to announced that Cathie Taylor is joining the HMC staff team to share the custodial load with Marianne.
