Take a Moment Prayer: Week of Feb 28

Look for this prayer each week. Take time to pray it each day and know that your church family is saying this prayer.

All praise and honor I give to you my Holy God! With my life I want to glorify your name. I want my thoughts and desires to be focused on obedience to your will. I want my attitudes and choices to be evidence revealed through all I say and do that points to the fact that I have a covenant with you...that you are my God and I am your child. You built the foundation for who I am and who I am to become. I want to continue to build on that foundation as I live each day walking faithfully with Christ. Guide me, Holy One. Take hold of me. Help me hear and see you as together we journey through this day. Nothing brings me more joy than knowing you are with me. Amen.

Pastor's Pen - February 2021

On Wednesday, February 17, we recognize the beginning of the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday is a solemn reminder of human mortality and the need for reconciliation with God and marks the beginning of the penitential Lenten season. It is commonly observed with receiving ashes in the sign of the cross on the forehead and fasting.

COVID-19 Upate (Updated Feb 1, 2021)

As they continue to navigate through Covid-19, the Leadership Team will continue to offer, as they are able, multiple ways to worship and to provide activities that fit the different needs of the congregation. They will be watching the Washington County positivity rate percentage. In-person worship at 50% capacity will resume when that rate is at or below 7% for at least two weeks. At that time, they will again offer in-person worship in the sanctuary, in addition to virtual worship and the bulletin and CD/DVD mailings.

For more information, click here to read their entire letter to the congregation.

Caring Hearts (Updated Jan 29, 2021)

The Service and Outreach Ministry team announces an outreach ministry for the remainder of January into February called Caring Hearts. We are collecting gently used or new winter hats, scarves, and gloves for adults. Some will be taken to guests at REACH during the week we serve (February 14-20), and others will be handed out in the neighborhood during these cold months. If you feel called to help, drop-off boxes will be placed in the West Entrance. Another chance to show HCoB has big hearts.

Virtual Lenten Breakfast with Pastor Twyla (Updated Jan 27, 2021)

This year as we embark on a personal journey through Lent, Pastor Twyla is offering a virtual Lenten breakfast on Zoom to be held every Wednesday morning, February 24 – March 24, from 6:30-7:00 AM.

Each week, the Bev will email the Zoom link to everyone so you can sign on at the scheduled time. Bring your breakfast to eat while we listen to readings of reflection, pray together, and perhaps even sing     together.

If you would like to volunteer to find a devotion, or even write your own to share with those who gather, please contact Pastor Twyla.
