HRF Weekly Update - April 22, 2018


This Sunday, April 22, 2018, Pastor Miguel will be preaching from 1 Timothy 3:1-7.

We encourage you to prepare for corporate worship by reading and praying through the text prior to the message on Sunday.


Here are a few discipleship resources our elders recommend checking out this week.

  • Be Countercultural and Enjoy Your Work -We have the opportunity to vividly show God’s original intent in creation when we take the advice of Ecclesiastes and rejoice in our work, when we enjoy the task God has given us and, in so doing, present to the world a vision of Eden in which we image God by working as God worked.
  • Reading Deeply -It’s all too easy to read the Bible superficially. We assume we know what a passage says and therefore we miss what it says. Here are some ways of slowing down to read a passage.
  • Church Life: Our True Political Witness -Then, remarkably, a Christian politics should become visible in the life and fellowship of the local church. Here is where the righteousness and justice of God become tangible, credible, and believable for the onlooking nations.

Please read them and use them as discipleship opportunities to discuss with one another. You can also view an archive of recommended discipleship resources here.


As mentioned this past Sunday, we will be nominating elders at our next Members Meeting on April 29, 2018. While the current elders will nominate future elders at this meeting, we would like the congregation to submit their recommendations to us.

Please take a moment and submit any names of those men in the church who you would recognize as meeting the biblical qualifications of serving as an elder (1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:6-9) in our congregation, and whom you could at the present time see yourself supporting.

You can submit your elder recommendations here.


Our next HRF Members Meeting will be April 29, 2018, at 3pm. Members Meetings serve as a way we care for another and carry out our responsibilities as members of a local church. If you are a member of HRF, please make every effort to attend.

Here the dates for our remaining member's meetings for 2018:

  • July 29, 2018
  • October 28, 2018
