Friday Focus: Christmas News 12.9.16

Dear HCN Family,
I’ve attached a copy of the December issue of the District News Letter. In it you can find information and news about events and activities that are going on around our Midsouth District. I hope you find this helpful to see that we are part of a larger body in the mission of the Gospel here in Middle Tennessee and in Mississippi. We are one of 130 churches that make up the Midsouth District. We are on the strongest and largest districts in the nation and we are blessed to be a part of such a vibrant and effective district. I hope you can take a few moments to look over the news letter I’ve attached.


Sunday Morning Worship – Third Sunday of Advent
This coming Sunday morning we enter into the third Sunday of Advent continuing our Thrill of Hope Advent Series. The focus of this Sunday’s worship service is JOY!!! I will be sharing a message entitled
“The Song of Joy” and we will be reading out of Luke 1. Make plans to join us this Sunday and join me in prayer as we prepare to glorify God and to invite Him to meet with us once again in Worship and in Word.

Christmas on Luna Lane – December 11th THIS SUNDAY NIGHT
We can’t wait for this exciting event that so much time and preparation has gone into. So many of our adults, children, and teens will be involved and have spent countless hours practicing and preparing for this special event. Please make plans to come and enjoy this celebration of Christmas. Be sure to invite friends and family to come. For those bringing Christmas cookies, please bring them with you this Sunday morning!

Fresh Start Resources Sponsorship Gifts
Thank you to everyone who purchased and brought their gifts in this week to sponsor the 14 individuals we are supporting through our partnership with Fresh Start Resources. I know that your generosity and giving spirit will be blessed.

All Church Christmas Caroling – Sunday Evening Dec. 18th 5:30 pm
We are going Christmas Caroling in our community!!! We hope you can join us as we load up our church bus and drive to Christian Manor to go Christmas Caroling. A sign up sheet is in the lobby at the Welcome Center. The first 29 people that sign up will have a seat on the bus. After that, everyone else will need to car pool. We hope you can join us as we hope to bring joy and blessings to those in our community who cannot typically get out to enjoy the festivities of Christmas.
