Third Sunday of Easter Announcements

The sale of our church property is now under contract!  The inspection period lasts 40 days (how biblical!) and will be followed by a closing date within 7 days of that period ending.  We could POSSIBLY close sometime in late May.  So, please KEEP PRAYING for our church!

One Great Hour of Sharing = $355
Last Sunday’s tithes and offerings = $2883.38
Thank you for your continued generosity!

We were informed this week that we have been awarded $1200 in grant funds from the Synod of the Sun.  These funds will be used to purchase a new computer and other equipment to use for our Zoom and in-person worship services. Since 2011, HPC has been awarded over $84,800 in grants and scholarship! OH BE JOYFUL!
