Check out these conversation starters...when you sit down to dinner as a family or have a few minutes together in the car sometime this week, try out one of these:

  • What do you want to be when you grow up? Grown ups share what you dreamed of being when you were a child.
  • What is your least favorite chore?
  • What is something you worry about?
The Church School Christmas program is in the works! Students will start learning music in class in the coming weeks. We will have two programs on Sunday December 15. You will be invited to sign up for the program that you want to attend. Watch for a sign up email to come in the coming weeks!
Nursery Volunteer: Would you be willing to help out occasionally in the church nursery? Once in a while our regular Nursery Care Provider is gone and we are looking for a group of subs we can call on to fill in so we can continue to provide this valuable ministry. Volunteers should be 16 or older and will need to pass a background check. Volunteers will only be called on a few times a year. Please contact Kelly to ask questions or to sign up. 

Thanksgiving Dinner @ HTLC
Celebrate Thanksgiving with dinner in the Fellowship Hall at 1:00 pm on Thursday, November 28! A minimum of 24 people are needed to hold this dinner. Sign up by Friday, November 15.
