A Note from Tyson on the NEW TWO SERVICES SCHEDULE Beginning Sept 22, 2013.

Excitement is all around Herscher Christian Church, because of what God is doing through His church and in the lives of many new believers.  It is encouraging to see how many of you are responding to God’s mission for us to “Share His Love with All People Everywhere!”  Just this past Monday during the Labor Day parade I was so thankful that so many were able to “Rise up” and join the Flash Mob team on main street, it was a great display of our confidence to shine for Christ.

Make no mistake, confidence in Christ is growing and we have great news of new opportunities for many of you, your families and your friends.  Starting on Sunday, September 22, we will offer two identical worship services starting at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.  These new times will hopefully provide new options for many of your packed schedules but most importantly this will allow us to grow as we continue to reach out and invite others to join us in worship and on this journey of following Christ.  Two service times will also allow volunteers to serve one hour and worship another hour.  

Please begin to pray about which worship service fits your schedule on Sundays and ask God who you will invite to join us now that there will be space in each service.  As Christians, we have been given a ministry by God, to share His love and message about His son with everyone we can so that they may be saved through Christ.

One of our new favorite worship songs at church is entitled “Build Your Kingdom Here” and it has a powerful message about God’s work in His Church.  Allow the words in this song to guide your prayers for us at HCC as we enter into this new time of opportunity for God’s Kingdom.

Build Your Kingdom here,  Let the darkness fear
Show Your mighty hand,  Heal our streets and land
Set Your Church on fire,  Win this nation back
Change the atmosphere,  Build Your Kingdom here,  We pray     

Here are some other upcoming programing opportunities for people of all ages:

This Sunday night, September 8 we kick off our regular weekly programs.  This means the MIX for Jr. and Sr. High students will meet every Sunday night starting at 6:30 p.m.  The MIX is lead by our Student Minister Daniel Thompson along with our new Intern Andy King and their great student ministry team.  

Small Groups for adults also get back into full swing this week with different special groups meeting on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for men, women, and/or couples.  Sign ups for these groups are still open at church.   

Our children’s programs on Wednesdays are led by Tiffani Graber and also return on September 11, all children preschool - 6th grade are invited to join us in a time of learning, worship and fun from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. every Wednesday night.  Jr. and Sr. High students are invited to the Wednesday night from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for Bible Study at Daniel’s home in Herscher at 274 North Park Road.  Daniel will be launching new home groups for the Jr. and Sr. High students on October 9th.
