Upcoming: Advent & Christmas at Huron Hills

Advent 2017 3(digital optimized).jpg

Join us for the season of Advent at Huron Hills Church!

During this reflective season, we'll explore the ways that God has made God's self a part of the human experience throughout time past, here today, and into the future. 

God's commitment to humankind, God's delegation of Divine work to everyday human agents, and God's constant promise of a healed future for all people
give us hope and direction in this season.

The Advent season will conclude with two Christmas Eve gatherings at 5:30pm and 7:00pm.
(in addition to our normal Sunday 11am gathering, which will still happen on the 24th)
Our 5:30 Christmas Eve gathering will feature a special presentation by HHKids.
Both Christmas Eve gatherings are all-ages, family-friendly.

Wednesdays: Alpha

Welcome to Alpha at Huron Hills:

 A 6-week, dinner-included, Wednesday night series starting Nov. 1 at 6:00pm.  This will give you a taste of the world-renowned Alpha course.  Wherever you are in your spiritual life, it is a great series to experience.  

 Exploring?
Alpha will help you think deeply about questions
you may have.  

Long-time Christian?
Alpha will help you engage with your faith well
as you also think about how to engage with those far
from God, potentially even using Alpha
in the future yourself.  

 

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.  Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.  It helps us think about how to thoughtfully engage together.  Alpha is all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.  

 

Welcome to Alpha at Huron Hills Church

Wednesdays at 6:00pm w/Dinner

Bring rakes, tarps, wheelbarrows, and even chainsaws to help get our campus ready for winter! We'll mostly focus on leaf removal, but there's some brush that needs to go as well! We will also be filling Thanksgiving bags for families in need! It's a great day when all ages can connect and serve together.

Bring your family, small group, neighbors, get outside
and enjoy some coffee and donuts too!

Coming Up: Shiloh, ministry for infertility and loss

shiloh_poster.jpg

Shiloh is a place for women navigating infertility and loss.

The name of Shiloh (the Biblical city) is derived from שלה‎ (shala) and means "place of peace." For women experiencing the pain of infertility or loss, nothing may be more needed than peace, rest, support, and understanding.

Join us at 7:00pm on the last Wednesday of each month in Room 117 on the lower level. The lower level doors will be unlocked, and you will be greeted with tea, snacks, and a place of peace.

Highly caffeinated church!

It's no secret that we love coffee at Huron Hills.

We often refer to ourselves as a "highly caffeinated church!" Over the past year, we've been growing in our ability to balance our love of the juice with our love of God's Creation. We've phased out styrofoam cups, and encouraged attenders to bring their own favorite mugs with them to church as a step away from disposable items. We've also created Huron Hills branded mugs so that there's always a cup here for you to use if you are a newcomer, or you forget.

Here's the best way for you to enjoy a cuppa here at HHC:

1. Bring your own mug.
(I keep mine in my car, give it a swish, and re-use it week after week.)
2. If an HHC branded mug stowed away home with you, bring it back for visitors to use.
(we wash them every week and have them ready for next week's visitors!)
3. Learn more about circular economy, and Christian ecology groups.
4. Join the Coffee Team
(we especially need input on how to source our coffee more responsibly!
email kurt@huronhills.org to get involved.)

Together, we can enjoy the fruits (and beans!) of God's Creation,
and protect them for years to come.
