“Bring your trees”

This Sunday is the big fire!! Our tradition for the past few years at HRC has been to gather our Christmas trees and other brush into a huge pile, and on Epiphany Sunday make a huge bonfire. In addition to other things, this represents the power of light over darkness.

So,  bring your trees to the pile near the Croniser parking lot.  You can do this anytime between now and 6:30 pm on Sunday, Jan 10.

We will eat, worship, and watch the fire!

Also, BRING YOUR DISH TO PASS for the same night. We start the evening with a POT LUCK SUPPER. Here is the schedule.

5:30-6:20 POT LUCK in Fellowship Hall.

6:20-6:30 SING and make our way out to the Croniser parking lot.

6:30-7:00 brief  WORSHIP and light the fire at Croniser lot.

7:00-8:00  OPTIONS- fellowship around the fire; fellowship, hot chocolate and snacks in Fellowship Hall; 6-12th graders go to Youth House for games and hanging out with youth leaders.

THIS IS A FUN AND EASY EVENT TO INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO.

Sunday morning

As we look at the story of the Magi and Jesus this Sunday we will be thinking about these ideas.

PURSUIT- the Magi pursued the star to find Jesus. What part does pursuit play in our following and finding Jesus?

RECOGNITION- the Magi recognized something special about this baby. What things have you recognized about God and life recently, as a result of your pursuit?

WORSHIP- the Magi bowed and worshipped the baby. In what ways has your pursuit and recognition led you to worship?

OFFERING- the Magi offered gifts of gold, frankincense and myrhh. They gave what they had. What offering have you made recently? What next steps is God calling you/us to as we grow in recognition, worship and offering?

And, as it is CHRISTCARE SUNDAY, I specifically ask you to consider this:   IN WHAT WAYS HAS PARTICIPATION IN A CHRISTCARE GROUP HELPED YOU TO GROW IN YOUR PURSUIT, RECOGNITION, WORSHIP AND OFFERING?

Yes, you know me well enough by now. I will  give you he chance to speak out and tell us how this has happened in your life.

I look forward to being with you all this Sunday, and to hearing stories of how God has led us out of darkness and into greater light.

Thanks for the opportunity to serve!

In Christ,
