Sunday, November 14th
As we begin the journey as a new church family, we will take a short break from the Let's Go series in Mark with a new November mini-series titled Our Purpose. This Sunday Pastor Jim will share from Acts 2:42-47 with Our Purpose: "Love Others."
Please plan to join us this Sunday for lunch in our Education Center downstairs following the service!
Considerations for recent Covid-19 surge:
As all of you probably know, Erie County has had a recent Covid-19 surge in cases reported and being treated. First, join Sherri and I as we pray for those who are now struggling with this illness from our own church family, our relatives, friends and especially for the elderly and those who have other health issues that make recovery from Covid even more difficult. I am grateful we are able to continue our worship services on Sunday mornings and do not see that as a foreseeable concern. I am, however, concerned about creating any fellowship event that would put any of our church family in harms way. After praying for wisdom, the HCC Elders believe at this time we can continue to plan for our Fellowship Luncheon, Men’s Fellowship Breakfast, Women’s Ornament Party and a community Christmas Eve service hosted at HCC. We do ask though that you seriously consider taking the necessary precautions while the Covid infected numbers are so high. Some suggestions would be wearing a mask when moving around in the church, washing hands often or take advantage of the hand sanitizers we will have throughout the church for your convenience, and keep a safe distance from others as best as possible. All of this will be left up to you as a responsibility for yourself and those around you. It will not be mandated but Paul said it best, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” (Philippians 2:4). I am grateful to be your pastor and pray for all of you often. Pastor Jim

National Adoption Month
November is National Adoption Month. It is a month about spreading awareness, to encourage others to learn about adoption, to hold adoption related events, and to acknowledge the people in this country whose lives have been impacted by adoption. The mission of National Adoption Month is to celebrate the families who have grown through adoption, and to recognize the many children who are still waiting for forever families.
Our sermon series in November will be about our vision, our purpose as a church in the Harborcreek area communities.
