"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." 
Romans 12:21

Hello friends –

A few IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS and requests for assistance
  • HPCC is NOT resuming onsite worship – COVID case counts indicate it is not yet safe to gather in person. The Official Board will reevaluate the situation at its next meeting, Sept. 10.
  • Help is needed Saturday afternoon (8/29) – unloading a moving truck a few block south of the church. They also need someone to provide cold drinks for the workers. Contact Pastor Heather if you can help.
  • Help is needed Monday morning (8/31) – moving some furniture, hauling away storm debris from a member’s home. Contact Pastor Heather if you can help.
  • The motion to replace the broken air conditioner passed. Thank you to those who came to the meeting or cast an absentee ballot.
  • Tuesday Coffee has resumed. We are meeting outside – no gathering if the weather is bad. Please bring your own chair, observe social distancing and do NOT bring any food or drinks to share.
This week in worship we will continue reading Romans 12 and reflect on the covenant for Christian living that Paul wrote. The sermon, Dos and Don’ts, will consider his words and the way they shape our life as a church and in the world.

Worship will be ONLINE ONLY and LIVE and will be available at this link: https://youtu.be/0iCXwwsh3bg Once the live-stream is finished the service will be available on the HPCC YouTube Channel for you to watch at your convenience.
As always, I am praying for all of you and your well-being. Please reach out to me if you have questions or concerns or just want to catch up.
Shalom,
Heather

Shalom is a Hebrew word meaning peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity,
welfare and tranquility. 
These things I pray for you.  
FYI
  • We need sanitizing wipes to keep the building clean and safe. Contact the church office to make arrangements to drop off any you are able to donate.
Reminders…
  • All worship services until further notice will be online only and can be found on the church YouTube channel.
  • Special events, youth group, Clothes Closet and Welcome Table are cancelled until further notice.  
  • The church elders have been calling folks to check and see how everyone is doing. When an elder calls you, be sure and let them know if there is anything you need. If you have not heard from an elder, send an email to joan.hpcc@gmail.com and make sure we have your current contact information.
  • The HPCC prayer list and critical prayer concerns are being shared via email. If you would like to receive these emails or have a concern to share, please contact Pastor Heather or Joan via email.
  • No one is in the building on a regular basis, so please use email to contact the church staff. 
  • Although we are not currently able to use the church facility as a group, the expenses to operate the facility and maintain staff continue. If you are able to support the church through your giving, contributions can be sent to the church office or through the Givelify app on your smartphone or tablet. You can also establish an automatic bill pay through your bank so your offering comes to the church every week even when you cannot.
