Exploring? Alpha will help you think deeply about questions you have.
Newer Christian? Alpha will help solidify you in your faith as you go deeper.

iZosh had an AWESOME Event on Friday Oct 12, raising -- and spending -- $12,844 on micro-loans for 39 women! The theme was "refugees," and many of the loan recipients are refugees themselves.
Huron Hills women are invited to the
iZosh Debrief meeting,
where we'll be funding even more women,
spending down some of our $14,000 (not a typo) in Kiva Credit from women who have been repaying their loans.
Monday Oct. 22, 6:30-8:30 at the Lodge.
(3100 Glazier Way)
Women of Ann Arbor and surrounding areas are invited to join a local group of women for the next Event of iZōsh, Women Investing in Women. Our speaker is Dr. Jessica Gladden from Ferris State University, who will share about her experience with refugees in Kenya, and how microfinance makes a difference in their lives. We will also be investing in women in extreme poverty around the world by granting micro-loans in real time. Please join us for this exciting free Event!
Tonight’s session of our Storytelling Workshop is being postponed until a later date. Many have indicated that they would like a few more weeks to work on their drafts, so we will be reconvening in a few weeks!
Feel free to come tonight for some quiet time to work on your draft if you’d like. I’ll be here!
It's week 2 of our workshop!
Last week, we met each other, brainstormed the beginnings of our stories, and started putting ideas on paper. We were inspired, encouraged, and entertained by each other's input and ideas. In preparation for this Tuesday's workshop, please prepare some kind of first draft. It can be a little or a lot...well-formed, or an outline only... whatever works for you, and gives us a jumping off point as a group.
Even if you missed our opening session, there is still time to join. Simply bring an early draft or some ideas along with you when you come.
We will be in Room 117 on the lower level!
Making wise choices about technology in our families is more than just using Internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It's about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology's promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world's knowledge at our fingertips. And it's definitely not just about the kids.
Tuesday, Sept 4 at 7pm! Our theme for this session is "Unexpected." Stories of finding God in the midst of the unexpected, or in places we don't expect to find God at all. We will brainstorm on Week 1, and work over the course of 5 weeks to develop our stories!
We'd love to get you involved with worship at Huron Hills. If you have musical or technical skills, and would like to serve the church, please let me know! We'd love to welcome you at our annual Worship Team Huddle, which will be taking place August 25. It's a time for existing worship team members and new members to get connected, and join into our pursuit of God's heart for our church.
Email email@example.com for more details!
All are welcome to attend a special class on Sunday morning August 12 at 9:30am, featuring attorney Hunter Wiggins. As a lawyer, Hunter has been working on the southern border, and brings firsthand knowledge of the situation facing asylum seekers and detainees. This class will discuss how to respond to the unfolding border situation in worship of the God of justice and mercy.
Come by August 11 in Room 216 from 8:30–10:00am for a bagel and fruit breakfast, connecting with other guys, and hearing a brother from Huron Hills share about his journey with Jesus.
If you are planning further out, reserve October 12 to 13 for an overnight men's retreat.

Discover real hope for renewal, restoration and resurrection in the ancient words of a prophet with a funny name. Haggai's words call us to trust that God wants consistent connection with us, and the resurrection power of the Father, Son and Spirit is always working...even in our "in-between" seasons of life.
