HRF Weekly Update - Feb 3, 2019

UPCOMING SERMON

This Sunday, February 3, 2019, Pastor Miguel will be preaching from Acts 14:1-23. We encourage you to prepare for corporate worship by reading and praying through the text prior to the message on Sunday.

CORPORATE WORSHIP SONGS

Here are the songs we will be singing together this Sunday:

  1. Let Us Adore

  2. Heaven & Earth

  3. From the Inside Out

  4. Wonderful Merciful Savior

  5. I Will Follow

NEW CITY CATECHISM #5

Question: What else did God create?

Answer: God created all things by his powerful Word, and all his creation was very good; everything flourished under his loving rule.

Scripture Memory Verse: Genesis 1:31

WEEKLY DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES

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

  1. I Can't Do This, God - Humans are impressed by the whole range of human strengths. But God is only impressed by one human strength: strong faith. Because faith is a dependence on God’s strength. 

  2. Three Methods to Keep You Praying - We know we need to pray. We know we’re called to it. We know that our lack of prayerfulness is a sign that we are unconscious of just how dependent we are upon God and that we are comfortable operating in our own strength. But still, how do we make it a regular practice?

  3. Can We Have Jesus Without the Church? - If we are in union with Christ, the head, then we are necessarily also connected to his body, the church.

Please read them and use them as discipleship opportunities to discuss with one another.

HRF MEN'S RETREAT - MAR 21-23

We are excited to announce an opportunity to encourage us all as brothers in Christ together! In 2019, HRF will be hosting a Men's Retreat for the men of HRF.

The theme for the 2019 HRF Men's Retreat will be Honor One Another and should serve as an opportunity for us all to better understand the role we each play in our responsibilities towards loving one another with brotherly affection and outdoing one another in showing honor.

The deadline to register is March 1, 2019, but we ask that you register ASAP for planning purposes. You can register with a $50 deposit now and pay the remaining amount by March 1.
