We worship together outdoors AND online.  Hope you are blessed!

October 4, 2020

So it was a bit hot today, but we still met outside "social distanced" outside church again under the jacaranda trees. 

We sang a few songs, prayed for folks and then heard the message from Pastor Harvey (me) about John 2:1-12 - the Wedding at Cana and the miracle of turning water into wine.

Mrs. Denise gave us a great update about Operation Christmas Child and reminded us that our packing party is next Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 10 am.  
So just remember 10-10 at 10. 
If you can make it, we'd love to see you as we pack the OCC boxes this year.   

Next week we will continue in John 2 as Jesus cleanses the Temple in Jerusalem. 

We look forward to you joining us next weekend, if you can make it live.  
Of course we will continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship.  So even if you cannot join us, we'd still like to pray for you.  Give us a call or email Pastor Harvey at harvey.hpcc@gmail.com to request prayer.  

COVID-19 Protocols in Our Church

We sanitize after each service...
social distance amongst congregants...
require a face mask...
and remind folks if they feel sick, then they should stay home...

Yes!  We are still meeting outside.
Here are some photos of what our outdoor worship area
 looks like before the folks show up.
We hope to see YOU in one of these social distanced chairs with us soon!

We continue covet your prayers at this time.

Again, this weekend we have prepared a worship page for you that includes...
Thursday Night's Bible Study PowerPoint AND the Zoom meeting recording.  

The topic was Separation (not the marriage kind!)  

The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
About how God told Noah to do something pretty important that wasn't easy...and he did it!...

We have  great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...

We hope this continues to bless YOU and draws you closer to God.

Remember, Denise and I are a phone call away if you want to pray together or just chat.  
(Also remember that God is NOT far away, He has promised that He would never leave us - can I get an "Amen"!)

And don't forget to comment below about anything that we can help you with.
Or any conversation you would like to start.

Thanks for all of your support!
For Him and His Kingdom,
Pastors Harvey & Denise

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...

I John 3:1-12 (NASB)

1 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.

3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.  

4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

5 You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

6 No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 

7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;

8 the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 

9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

11 For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another;

12 not as Cain, who was of the evil one and slew his brother. And for what reason did he slay him? Because his deeds were evil, and his brother’s were righteous.
