HRF Weekly Update - Feb 24, 2019

UPCOMING SERMON

This Sunday, February 24, 2019, Pastor Miguel will be preaching from Acts 15:36-41. 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. Hear the Sound

  2. Behold Our God

  3. How Majestic

  4. Come Thou Fount

  5. At the Cross (Love Ran Red)

  6. Now Why This Fear

NEW CITY CATECHISM #8

Question: What is the law of God stated in the Ten Commandments?

Answer: You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below—you shall not bow down to them or worship them. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Honor your father and your mother. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony. You shall not covet.

Scripture Memory Verse: Exodus 20:3 & Deuteronomy 5:7

WEEKLY DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES

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

  1. The Antidote to Self-Pity - We need to be reminded to look outside of our circumstances and ourselves.

  2. Four Aspects of Your Identity in Christ to Focus On - May we each grasp and live out the identity we have in Jesus.

  3. Gospel Doctrine, Gospel Culture - Gospel doctrine creates a gospel culture. The doctrine of grace creates a culture of grace, as Jesus himself touches us through his truths. Without the doctrines, the culture alone is fragile. Without the culture, the doctrines alone appear pointless. But the New Testament binds doctrine and culture together.

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

HRF INSTITUTE

We are now offering classes during the Sunday morning hour from 10 am - 10:45 am.

Currently, grades 1-8 are studying the New City Catechism in their student groups. Grades 9-12 and adults are attending a class on Evangelism. Children from Kindergarten and below attend the NEST during this time.

You can listen to the audio from these classes here. Come join us as we study God's Word together on Sunday mornings!

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.
