HRF Weekly Update - March 10, 2019


This Sunday, March 10, 2019, Pastor Tony will be preaching from Acts 16:6-11. We encourage you to prepare for corporate worship by reading and praying through the text prior to the message on Sunday.


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

  1. Give To Our God Immortal Praise

  2. Oh How I Need You

  3. Psalm 34 (Taste and See)

  4. Be Thou My Vision

  5. He Who Is Mighty

  6. Holy Holy Holy


Question: What does God require in the fourth and fifth commandments?

Answer: Fourth, that on the Sabbath day we spend time in public and private worship of God, rest from routine employment, serve the Lord and others, and so anticipate the eternal Sabbath. Fifth, that we love and honor our father and our mother, submitting to their godly discipline and direction.

Scripture Memory Verse: Leviticus 19:3.


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

  1. How Not to Respond to Doubt - Whether it’s the doubts of a child, coworker, neighbor, fellow church member, or friend, there are both helpful and unhelpful ways to respond. First, here are three ways not to respond.

  2. Go to Church — Even When You Don’t Feel Like It - The most important time to be at church is when you don’t feel like it.

  3. 7 Questions For Meaningful Conversation With Believers - We’ve got to move dialogue with believers beyond a superficial level if we are going to really know and encourage one another. But where do we even start? Here are seven questions you might ask.

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



This Sunday we will begin to teach a new HRF Institute Class on "Guidance - Knowing God's Will".

Over the next 4 weeks, we will take a look at what the bible says about the will of God, how God guides His people, and how we are called to make decisions in all areas of life in light of God's Word.

Please join us this Sunday at 10 am in the Fellowship Hall as we begin this 4-week class together!


We are excited to announce a few changes to HRF Kids starting this Sunday, March 3rd. One change we are especially excited about is that we will finally be opening our Kindergarten room! If you are a parent of a kindergartner, please feel free to check them into HRF Kids on Sunday.

To accommodate the new room, we will be changing the room names and arrangement. All HRF Kids rooms will now be referred to by colors! The color names will make it simpler for parents to know which room their child is assigned to. The room your child is in will be on their check in sticker and there will be signs outside each room as well. Myself and others will be there ready and willing to help on Sunday with any questions you have and to direct you to the correct rooms. Here is a list of the rooms with their new names:

  • Green Room (nursery)

  • Blue Room (young toddlers)

  • Yellow Room (toddlers)

  • Purple Room (older toddlers)

  • Red Room (3 and 4 year olds)

  • Orange Room (rising and current kindergartners)

We also have a lactation room upstairs with two rocking chairs for any mom’s who would like to use it!


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. If you have any further questions about this event, please contact Ben Slade at (423) 667-8939 or
