Take a Moment Prayer: Week of May 28
Look for this prayer each week. Take time to pray it each day and know that your church family is saying this prayer too.
Holy God, send your loving Spirit into my life. Please send your Spirit to take this day and all that I say and do in it and make it holy. I want your presence to shine through me for all to see. I want your Spirit in me to say to others that you love them and that you want to be a living part of their lives. If for some unknown reason I should hesitate and resist the leading of your Spirit, send me assurance and confidence to overrule my hesitation. Thank you for the honor of serving in this capacity for you. Thank you for your Spirit who touches me with love. Amen.
The Pastor's Pen - May 2023
With the arrival of warmer sunny days, I find myself thinking about fun things that I enjoy doing outside. I enjoy gardening, walking, swimming (when I have the chance), going to the beach and the occasional motorcycle ride. These activities are relaxing forms of play for me. This brings to my mind once again, a theme from an earlier time in my ministry at HCOB. It was a time of transition in pastors at the church and I was serving as your interim pastor. Transitions can be difficult; and can create some anxiety about the unknown of the future.
Food Pantry (Updated Dec 7, 2022)
The first Sunday of every month is Food Pantry Sunday. Bring in your gift(s) of non-perishable food items, place them on the cart as you enter the west entrance, and a volunteer delivers the food to a local food bank.
We thank everyone for their continued support of this ministry to our community!
Just a reminder - all items should be either dry, boxed, or in cans. Please do not bring in anything in a glass jar that could break and injure a recipient or our volunteers.
Updated Mask Guideline (Updated Aug 29, 2022)
Covid guideline reminders. **We ask that if you know, or suspect, you have been exposed to someone who tested positive for Covid, or if you have a temperature and/or you are feeling unwell, that you remain home and worship with us via Facebook.**
We ask that everyone attending worship please observe social distancing guidelines. You may enter and exit through the West Entrance, and exit only through the Washington Street door. Please do not stop on the outside steps to chat and possibly block those entering and exiting behind you. Also, remember to keep a clear path from the building to the sidewalk ramp as we enter and exit at the west entrance. We need to keep that path clear to make it easier for those who have special needs to access the use of the ramp to their car.
