A Renewed Purpose!
A Note from Pastor Jerry!
Are you feeling stuck? Are you hungry to see the Holy Spirit do something fresh in your life? Have you figured out that you need to be RENEWED? Starting on this Sunday, January 17th, and going through to February 7th, 2021, we'll be looking at four areas of being "renewed." We need to experience having:
A RENEWED SPIRIT
A RENEWED PURPOSE
A RENEWED LOVE
A RENEWED COMMUNITY.
There are daily practices that will bring a freshness to you that will bring a renewal to NHCC. Take the challenge and get, RENEWED! each Sunday for the next 4 weeks.
Are you with me?
OPEN FOR WORSHIP IN-PERSON & ONLINE!
We want to assure you that we are remaining open for in-person worship, taking precautions and making sure the facility continues to be sanitized after our Sunday worship. We want to remind all who would attend of these important guidelines:
1. Attend ONLY if you are NOT experiencing signs of illness -
(i.e. - fever, persistent/active cough, unusual tiredness or fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle aches, chills, sore throat, runny nose, headache)
2. If you've been directly exposed to someone within the last 48 hrs who has tested Covid positive, have had a recent loss of taste, or just not sure you should be around others, please follow the CDC's guidelines for self-quarantining. You may not have it, but we'd rather you miss a Sunday than to cause someone else to become ill.
3. Minimize your risk by using hand sanitizer, being contentious of the space you give others and yourself, wear a mask, limit touching your eyes and nose, or simply stay at home. You can watch the Sunday message on FB Live by going to New Horizons Community Church's Facebook page.
We want to be sure to remind our church family to be diligent in their self & other's protection. We want to encourage folks to spread out in our large worship area and know that you won't be crowded. If it is too uncomfortable or the risk is too high for you to be around others for worship who may not be wearing a face covering, we understand. We love you and want to see you stay healthy so we can see you again at New Horizons when this crazy season of life is done.
