Hello friends – 

This Sunday we will continue our series on T he Lord’s Prayer .  During worship we will consider God’s will and the kingdom or kin-dom of God. Worship will be ONLINE ONLY and you will be able to view it LIVE at 10:15 using this link: https://youtu.be/FRa8nEPtCJA You may need to click on the red and white play button to start streaming it. The video will also be available to view on the HPCC YouTube Channel after the live stream is finished.

On July 9 th the HPCC Official Board met and voted to continue with worship online only and with the majority of our ministries suspended. A few people have asked why we aren’t meeting since they see other churches resuming in person worship. Please know that each month the trustees and board carefully weigh the risks of gathering in person and the safety measures we would need to have in place. We feel that too many of our members and friends are in a high risk category and we don’t feel we can guarantee a safe worship experience. In August the church leadership will once again meet online and examine the situation at that time and discuss if HPCC is prepared to safely return to the building. 

Another question I have been asked lately is, “ How are the church finances ?” I’m very happy to say that the members and friends of HPCC have continued to support the church and we are weathering the storm. Some of our monthly expenses have been reduced since we are not in the building – so that helps. We are so incredibly grateful for your commitment to the church.  

One ministry we were able to resume this July was our partnership with the DMARC Mobile Food Pantry . They were at the church July 9 th and will return July 23 rd .  On these days they are in the circle drive from noon to 2 and are safely distributing free bags of food and boxes of produce.   All are welcome!

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 is a Hebrew word meaning peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity,
welfare and tranquility. 
These things I pray for you.  
  • 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.
