It's All Good

September 15, 2018
By Connie Weaver

As you might have expected due to the softening of our weather forecast, all activates at the church this Sunday are ON. I'll look forward to seeing many of you in worship this Sunday. Please continue to be in prayer for those most affected by Hurricane Florence. 

The sermon text for this Sunday, Sept. 16th, is Exodus 32:7-14. This will be the second in a series of sermons on prayers in the Bible. 

Remember that Children’s Worship has begun for the fall, so kids aged 4 through 2nd grade will be dismissed following Drawing Near to the Word, to go with our DCE, Lori Alford, and a volunteer helper, for Children's Worship.

There’s still time to share your memories about Hebron Presbyterian Church, in preparation for our Heritage Celebration. Come to the Ralph Fields room after worship this Sunday, and we'll videotape your “memory” about being part of this congregation. These brief recordings of your special memories will be shown during our 175th Heritage weekend in October.

As part of our upcoming 175th birthday celebration for Hebron Church, you have the opportunity to sponsor a new Bible & hymnal set for the sanctuary, including (if you choose) to have your name or the name(s) of others noted inside the book. Inserts for this are in the Sunday worship bulletins. You may also contact the church office to have a form emailed to you. Please plan to complete your form and return it with your $25 (per set) payment by Sept. 23rd.

There will be a brief congregational meeting after worship on Sept. 23rd, to elect members of the nominating committee that will be securing new officer nominees for the coming year. 

Wednesday Night Special – Beginning October 3rd, we’ll enjoy a weekly meal together through mid-November. Our study will be taken from a book called Concentric Circles of Concern by Oscar Thompson. The “concentric circles” concept helps us look at how we talk about our faith in the context of our personal relationships. If you would like a copy of the book, please leave word with the church office, and we’ll order one at a cost to you of $11.00. We'll take a break from our WNS study on Oct. 17th, to hear a presentation from Ronnie Nuckols about his recent trip to Niger. 

Heritage Concert, Friday, October 19th - As part of our 175th anniversary heritage celebration, there will be a concert on the Friday evening before our Heritage Sunday. There is more info on this event in our September church newsletter.

Heritage Sunday, October 21st – Hebron Presbyterian’s 175th “birthday” as a congregation will be celebrated with a special service of worship and a luncheon to follow. Our guest preacher will be the Rev. Walter Mann.

And there's so much more! Keep up with events at Hebron Presbyterian Church through these weekly posts; and if you'd like to receive our monthly newsletter, email our secretary at hebronpresbyterian@comcast.net.
