Beloved members and friends of HPC,
Ecclesiastes 3:5b reads that there is “a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.”
It appears that a time to refrain has come.
The session of HPC has made the difficult decision to suspend all physical gatherings at HPC including worship services and Bible studies through April 30, 2020.
We care deeply about the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of all people, especially during this Covid19 pandemic. As the situation is rapidly developing and changing, we will continue to respond with reason and care, not fear. We will continue to assess the situation and will publicly post a notice when we resume gathering at HPC.
As we intentionally keep our distance from others, or perhaps even self-isolate as needed, it is important to remember that Jesus did not enter the wilderness alone: the Holy Spirit was with him the whole time! The Holy Spirit is with us as we navigate this pandemic. Times like this, perhaps more than ever, call for prayer, worship, and devotion to the scriptures. We will be using Facebook Live to worship together remotely on Sunday mornings at 11 am. Use this link to join the group and watch: https://www.facebook.com/groups/636224277169880/
Also, I will be sending out email (and snail mail upon request) Home Worship Materials to our membership and anyone else who might want them. Feel free to share them with others.
You are all precious to God and precious to us. We continue to pray for those in our community who will battle loneliness, loss of income, lack of childcare, and food insecurity, not to mention those who become ill and those who care for them.
Peace be with you as we navigate this wilderness together.
