The Feast of the Epiphany
Today is a significant day for Christians - it is the celebration of the Epiphany, a day intended to commemorate the Magi's visit to the baby Jesus, complete with sacred gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. It was one of the first ways that Christ was revealed to the gentiles. While gathering for a large celebration may not be feasible, here are a few ways we can celebrate this day within our families:
 
  • Take a few minutes to recall and reflect on the amazing celestial sight this past December when Jupiter and Saturn aligned to create the "Christmas Star". You could even head outside for some star gazing again tonight! Some astronomers believe that Jupiter or a passing comet could have been the “star” the Magi followed to Christ.
  • Bring your children a sweet treat and talk to them about Epiphany and the many ways we are still invited to travel nearer to Christ today.
  • Around the dinner table tonight, ask “If we were to bring Christ a precious gift in 2021, what do you think he would most want?”
Our study on Nehemiah continues: Inspect Your Walls Honestly
This Sunday, Pastor Don will lead us in the second part of our study on Nehemiah with a look at how we can let God transform and rebuild our lives and our world.
REMINDER: Childcare is now available for children 6 weeks to 5 years during the 10:45 service. Click here to RSVP.
Right Now Media: Check out our new massive biblical video library
Thanks to the generosity of one of our families, every person at HFUMC can now access thousands of biblical video resources...for free!

HFUMC now has a subscription to Right Now Media, which is like a Netflix for biblical lessons. Video lessons from several well-known Christian leaders -- like Francis Chan, Louie Giglio, and Sadie Robertson Huff -- are available for people of all ages, gender, race, life phase, etc. You can watch the lessons alone or as part of a small group or Sunday School class.

Church office hours resume tomorrow
As we make our way into 2021, we want to be sure that we are available for your needs. Beginning tomorrow, Suzanne Newman, our Administrative Assistant, will be answering the phones here at the church from 9-4 M-TH, and 9-12 on Friday. As of this time, the office is still closed to the public, but if you need an appointment with church staff, she would be glad to help you get one set up. The Medical Closet is also available during these times, and you can let us know how we can help. All interactions will continue to follow CDC guidelines with a need for masks, and social distancing. Looking forward to serving you- the number for the church is 615-824-8725.
