Thank You, HMC Ministry Council

John C. Maxwell says that “everything rises and falls on leadership.”

It is a new day at HMC. We are in a new season of life, and God is up to something here. There is excitement, vitality, and a newness of hope here. We are moving forward with a fresh vision for what God wants to do in us and through us. As we move forward, we are thankful to our leadership who have stayed the course and helped bring us to the place we are today. Thank you to our Ministry Council for wanting the best for this church, for desiring that we be a place that honours God, and for having the courage to lead us to where we are today. We don’t always see the times of prayer you spend on our behalf, or the countless hours in meetings, but today we see the result, and we say “Thank you”.

—From the staff team and congregation of HMC.


Let Us Feast!

Before the sermon last Sunday, Pastor Jason asked the congregation to complete a brief survey to determine if there was any interest in beginning a monthly congregational meal.

The following questions were asked:

       1. Would you be interested in eating monthly with other HMCer’s?

       2. What scenario would be best for you?

    • Wednesday supper at 6pm before Family Ties
    • Sunday supper at 5 or 6pm before a time of Praise and Worship
    • Sunday evening dessert, after a time of Praise and worship

       3. Which would you prefer: potluck or food provided for a small fee/donation?

In all, 159 surveys were completed and 112 said that yes, they would like to share meals together with the most checks going to a Sunday evening potluck meal before a time of Praise and Worship. A good group of people also indicated that they would be willing to help with a recurring event like this which is an amazing blessing.

We want to thank everyone for their response to these questions and we are excited for what this means as we continue to move forward and build up the community of HMC.

Planning for the fall is well underway and we will keep you posted as to what this will look like.
