HRF Weekly Update - March 31, 2019

UPCOMING SERMON

This Sunday, March 31, 2019, Pastor Tony will be preaching from Acts 16:16-24. 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. O Praise the Name (Anástasis)

  2. Ever Living God

  3. Soon

  4. It Is Well

  5. To The Cross I Cling

  6. Your Love Never Fails

NEW CITY CATECHISM #12

Question: Can anyone keep the law of God perfectly?

Answer: Since the fall, no mere human has been able to keep the law of God perfectly, but consistently breaks it in thought, word, and deed.

Scripture Memory Verse: Romans 3:10–12.

WEEKLY DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES

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

  1. Why Self-Confidence Is Lethal - Our confidence and assurance that we can enter God’s presence . . . are actually created by recognizing that our access to him is based not at all on anything in us or about us.

  2. Encourage One Another - In your short life, you have a million tiny opportunities, including a hundred today, to inject a small but potent dose of life and light into another.

  3. How Bad Theology Hurts the Suffering - If you are in Christ, God is completely for you. Your suffering is not a punishment. Your struggles are not because you didn’t pray the right way, or because you didn’t pray enough, or because you have weak faith or insufficient intercessors. It is because God is using your suffering in ways that you may not understand now, but one day you will.

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

CORPORATE PRAYER THIS SUNDAY

This Sunday we will be gathering for Corporate Prayer together at 3 pm. This is an opportunity to pray together as a church and ask the Lords help as we seek to carry out the responsibilities of a local church. NEST and Students groups will meet during this time as well.

All are welcome.

HRF INSTITUTE CLASS - GUIDANCE

hrf-institute-guidance-v1-1-1920x1080.jpg

For the last three weeks, we have been in a new HRF Institute Class on "Guidance - Knowing God's Will".

This week is our last class on this topic, as we continue taking 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 continue this class together!

HRF NEW MEMBERS CLASS - APRIL 7

HRF will be hosting a New Members class on Sunday, April 7, 2019 from 1 pm - 4 pm. This class is an introduction to our church and the responsibilities of membership. Although it is required in order become a member of HRF, in no way does participating in the class obligate you to join HRF. We also recommend that existing members attend this class once a year as a refresher on what membership involves in the life of HRF. Lunch and childcare will be provided.

HRF DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING CLASS - APRIL 14

Would you like to join a Discipleship Group but don't know where to begin?
Would you like to lead a Discipleship Group but don't know what that looks like?


Many people desire to be discipled but have many questions and don't know where to start.

This training will help you to feel more confident in beginning and/or being a part of a Discipleship Group. It will also provide you with the necessary tools to help you initiate a discipling relationship and/or be a part of one.

Bring your questions and let's spend some time together getting better equipped in our responsibility to disciple others!

Lunch and childcare will be provided.
