New Summer Worship Time
Beginning Sunday, May 28 at 9:00 A.M.
Beginning Sunday, May 28 (Memorial Day Weekend) we will begin a trial run, through the end of August, of one worship service at 9:00am. Reasons for doing this are:
· Allow us to meet one another from the other service.
· Numbers are often lower during the summer months.
· 9:00am will allow people to enjoy a full summer’s day after worship.
Adult forum, Bible study and other activities will be after worship. We will seek your feedback in August about the three month trial.

As the Body of Christ known as HTLC, we have a history of providing food to the hungry year around. Even with the price of groceries increasing, each basket will cost $42.00, and once again this year we will only buy the baskets we have received gifts for. We will also need many helping hands on Saturday, November 19 at 9:00am to help pack and distribute these baskets.
Envelopes are available at the info center.
Thanksgiving Eve Service will be held on November 23, at 7:00pm. Join us to thank God for all the wonderful blessings in our lives. It will be followed by a pumpkin dessert carry-in.
On Sunday, November 20, after the 2nd service we will have a HYMN SING. This would be a time to learn new hymns and new music. Lunch would be provided by the Thrivent Action Team funds. Please bring a canned food item to be donated to Christian Ministries.
