This Sunday is Communion Sunday
and Jesus tells us which commandment is the greatest.

Sept. 5 is Communion Sunday

This Sunday we will celebrate the Sacrament of Communion. The bread and juice are both prepared in individual cups and are not passed.  If you are worshiping with us via lifestream, please prepare your own bread and juice to celebrate the Lord's Supper with us.


Monday, Sept. 6th is Labor Day
Enjoy a restful day off (as will the church staff).

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. The church office will be closed.

Please pray for all those who protect and care for us who will not have the day off.

Coffee, Talk & Prayer
9:30 am Sundays in the Hospitality Hallway

Come at 9:30 for coffee, talk and pray for each other, the church and our community. Meet in the Hospitality Hallway (the coffee bar area outside the office).

Have a prayer request? Email it to or you can post a prayer request on the board in the hallway. 

Real help for a worry-free financial life ...
virtual meetings start Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 8:00 pm.

HPPC will sponsor another Financial Peace University course with money guru Dave Ramsey. The last class was able to celebrate when a car loan was paid off! Learn ways to dump debt, build wealth, and say goodbye to money stress!

Is Alpha for you? You might be surprised!
Wednesday Sept. 15th at 8:30 pm

This small group offers something different for every person, no matter where they are "right now" in their faith walk. It's also a great way "to invite a friend" for a non-threatening introduction to faith. You will meet some new people, and see some old friends.
Everyone is welcome to come check it out!

Meetings via Zoom on Wednesdays at 8:30 pm


What exactly is WORSHIP+2?

This means engaging in Sunday Worship (in-person or livestreaming) and being part of two more things. You can connect with others in a small group like Alpha, Financial Peace or Sunday School class, and serve as part of a ministry committee, special event or helping with the church workdays.
We need each other, and when you step into WORSHIP+2 you will be amazed at what God is doing in your life. And in the life of this church.

Waiting is over: Get ready to fly on Sept. 12!

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.                    - Isaiah 40:31
This summer our church has been in a cocoon, hopefully resting and renewing our strength. We are ready to fly! Relaunching our church will take strength, and there will be joy as we come back together.

Sunday, Sept. 12 is our Relaunch
9:30 - 9:50 - Coffee, Talk and Prayer
10 am - Worship, both in-person and livestreaming
11 am - Classes for Children 3 and up
11 am - Classes for Adults
9:30 - Noon - Nursery 
See you soon!

Monk Brannan's Chicken Tetrazzini
Featured on Harriet's Florida Kitchen

Creamy, bubbly, golden brown Chicken Tetrazzini, full of mushrooms, pasta, chicken or turkey and just a hint of garlic, sherry and parmesan cheese can take up every pan in your kitchen if made more traditionally, but this much faster version of the late, great, adorable Monk Brannan's is blissfully easy but still tastes amazing!!

Harriet Plyler says "It was the best tribute I could think of to this wonderful friend, mother, grandmother, wife, cook, sailor and tennis player. Bon voyage, Monk."
