Bulletin — October 20, 2019


We’re bringing back Building Connections! Stick around after the service next week (Sunday, October 27) for great conversation and an opportunity to meet new people around a plate of treats. Please bring along some finger foods to share, sweet or savoury, whatever you fancy!

Our HMC AGM & Potluck will be on Sunday, November 24 after the service. Please bring along a main course dish to share & plan to stay for the meeting to learn what’s going on in the life of our church. Members and non-members alike are invited to attend.


We are collecting boxed candy that will be included in treat bags to be handed out during our Halloween Drop By Parties. Please bring your donations in by Friday, October 25

Do you love to bake? If you’re interested in helping to provide desserts for our MIDWEEK MEAL, please connect with Pastor Kristina.

We are looking for volunteers to fill a few gaps. If you’d be willing to serve on the usher team, or if hospitality is something near and dear to your heart, please talk with Pastor Kristina.

Are you interested in helping us fill our freezer? We’d love to have a selection of home cooked meals we can hand out as blessings. Please connect with Pastor Lyndsay if you can help.

Branching Out

HMC is on the Hanover Trick or Treat Trail and it’s a great way to be involved in our community. We will be handing out candy and having activities just outside our front doors from 3 p.m. until dark on October 31. We’re also championing Halloween Drop-By Parties. If you’d like to serve in your neighbourhood by giving out cups of hot chocolate and goodies bags provided by the church, please connect with Pastor Amos.

Operation Christmas Child is coming soon! Boxes will be available on November 3 and must be returned by November 17. This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.

Our Warming Centre will be up and running on Thursday, November 7, providing a place for those in need of warmth and company to enjoy a hot bowl of soup and friendly conversation. We are accepting donations of non-perishable food items that can be handed out to those who attend. These items can be dropped off at the hutch in the foyer that is labelled HMC Pantry. Also needed are donations of bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo, as well as knitted goods. If you’d like to volunteer for this great ministry opportunity, whether it’s to hang out with our guests, to serve or clean up, or to make soup, please connect with Marcia Burt. There is a soup sign up at the Welcome Centre.

Hanover Heights is looking for donations of small hats, socks, and gloves/mittens that can be distributed to children who don’t have the necessary means to stay warm. These items can be dropped off at the pantry cupboard in the foyer.


Please continue to keep Sue McDougall and family in your prayers as she is facing some health concerns.
