Earthkeeping Class

Wednesdays, 6 Weeks, April 18 - May 23
6:30-8:00pm
Huron Hills Church, Room 216

What does it mean to care for Creation? As Christians, we are called into deep alignment with the Creator who seeks out that which is shattered by sin, and mends broken relationships through Christ. This reconciliatory work extends to God's Creation, where we, as Christ's ambassadors, have an opportunity to bring healing and hope to the world. Join us as we look at this together and explore ways to put this into action.

I Don't Have a Guidebook

make us new.jpg

Hi there, it's Betsy.
Greetings from Maternity Leave! If you're like me, and meant to pick up a Make Us New participant guide, and then .....something came up*.......don't worry. 
You don't need to skip out on attending a small group, or go laden with shame just because you're not feeling prepared. Feel free to cruise the guidebook digitally, and take note of your responses to back-fill your guidebook later.
Or maybe you're just a digital person— that's cool too. 
If you're not connected to a small group (and don't feel like you want to host one), come to Huron Hills at 6:30pm on Wednesdays (dinner together at 6) and join a discussion group in Room 216.

New Series: Make Us New

MakeUsNew_Square.jpg

Starting Wednesday, February 14, and continuing Sundays through Easter, join us for our all-church spring focus series, Make Us New.

Make Us New was developed in-house at Huron Hills, to speak to the people of Huron Hills directly, and we are so excited to share it with you.

Participant guides will be available to all on February 11.

All small groups will be using the Make Us New materials for the 6 weeks of the series. It's also a great time to start your own short-term small group. If you can read aloud from the leaders' guide, you can host a small group.

Contact kurt@huronhills.org if you'd like a small group leaders' guide to start your own group.

New Series: Jesus Revealed

JR_sqPrev.jpg

We're kicking off 2018 with a new message series.
So invite a friend, join a home group and be a part of our search for an honest, compassionate and hopeful faith!

“Truly radical Christian discipleship....does not consist of foolishly trying to copy or externally imitate his person and life story, or solely following his teaching, but above all of accepting Jesus’ internal attitudes. That is why it is necessary to meditate on scripture truly in depth and try to break through the letter into the spirit of the text.” – Tomas Halik

Christmas Eve Service Times

Xmas Eve Square.jpg

This Christmas Eve, we invite you to learn more about the historical Jesus, and why Christians believe that the arrival of Jesus changes everything.

Gatherings at 5:30 and 7:00 PM.

We'll sing carols by candle light, greet each other with holiday warmth, and hear traditional Bible readings. The 5:30 gathering will also feature a short song segment from the HHKids ministry. Both services are all-ages and family-friendly; squirmy kids, and "I only to to church at Easter and Christmas" welcome too. Attire is casual; we'll just be glad you're with us.

We hope you'll join us!

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

*Note: due to cancellations for poor weather, Week 6 of "Welcome to Alpha" will be held on January 3.

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
