Bulletin — February 23, 2020


Please join us for a Worship & Prayer Night for Monday, February 24. 7-8 p.m.

The Teen Challenge Choir will be coming to bless us next week on Sunday, March 1. There will be a special goodwill offering collected in support of their ministry.

Our 3rd Annual Chilli Cook-Off is on Sunday March 1 following the Teen Challenge service. We are taking only TEN entries, so if you want to participate, please sign up at the Welcome Centre today — start thinking about what going to make your pot stand out from the rest!

March is going to be Camp Month at HMC. Each week will feature a focus on a different avenue of camp ministry. If you’re not longing for summer yet, this will really get you in the mood!

We’re planning a complimentary continental breakfast on Easter Sunday (April 12) so plan to come early that morning to enjoy some fruit and baked goods – stay tuned for more details.


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

An adult helper is needed in the preschool place on the last Sunday of each month. If you’re willing to volunteer, please talk to Marie Bezeau.

Moms and Tots needs more adult volunteers to help with childcare on Wednesday mornings. Connect with Alicia DeVisser if you can help.


The Hanover Ministerial 2020 Lenten Service & Lunch series kicks off on Wednesday, March 4 from 12-1 p.m. at St. Matthews Lutheran Church. Pastor Dave will be bringing the message on that day. A freewill offering will be collected to support The Light on Main, Hanover & Area Refugee Committee, and Hope Grey-Bruce Services.

Can you help? HMC is to provide squares and cookies. Please sign up at the Welcome Centre to bring in a tray by 9:30 a.m. on March 4. Two helpers are also needed for that day. Connect with Carolyn Austin for more information.


It’s the perfect time to set a goal to dive into scripture. Pastor Kristina is inviting you to join her on a daily Bible reading plan. Go to shorter.at/ehnZ8 to accept her invitation to The Bible Project.

ONE TO ONE – Our goal at HMC is to be generations who follow Jesus together and one way we want to do that is through a “one to one” reading plan. Those who sign up will be matched with one other person in a different age group and given a short reading plan to read throughout the week. You will then be able to spend 10-20 minutes once a week with the person you are paired with to talk about what you read and discuss what you are learning. This will be a short term commitment with the chance to make it a long term one. Will you commit to trying this out for a couple of months and seeing what God does? Pick up a form at the Welcome Centre or chat with Pastor Kristina for more information.


The Hanover Fire Department would like to invite you to participate in their Alarm for Life Program. The Hanover Fire Dept. will visit your home to test and inspect your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. This is a free program. If you would like to participate, please contact FPO Rob Hagan, 519-364-2780 ext. 1223, fpo@hanover.ca


Our Warming Centre runs every Thursday from noon to 2:00, 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 by the main office in the foyer. Also needed are donations of bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo, as well as knitted goods. As the weather is colder these days, we are very low on gloves and mitts. We appreciate your support and selfless giving to this ministry! 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.

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 outside the main office.
