Sept 17: Workshop

Please join us on September 17 from 3-7pm for a workshop with Converge MidAmerica's Gary Rohrmayer. This workshop will equip you to "go deeper" with people that God has put around you, learn what the Holy Spirit is already doing in their lives, and help them discover and embrace God's action for them. There is a suggested donation of $15-$25 to cover the cost of materials. Scholarships are available.

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.

Resurrection Life (New Weekend Series)

On Easter Sunday we're kicking off our new weekend teaching Series, Resurrection Life.

For 7 weeks, we'll be celebrating and learning how the resurrection of Jesus gives us a whole new world view and shapes the way we are to live together!

Because of Jesus, we can be an Easter people filled with hope, possibility, prophetic imagination, unbounded creativity, and the audacity to proclaim that death will never have the last word!

We are an Easter people, and how we live together is a powerful witness to the truth of Jesus! 

ASH WEDNESDAY PRAYER 7pm

Let's walk the broken way together! We will confess our limits, failures, and deep need for God. We will gather around the ancient practices of prayerful reflection, personal and communal repentance, and the symbolic marking of ashes on our foreheads. Bring your family, friends and home group to this significant time of worship together.

New Ministry - Shiloh, a Place of Rest

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 7:30pm on the first Wednesday of each month, beginning March 1 (after the Ash Wednesday gathering) 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.

Christmas Eve at Huron Hills

Please join us at Huron Hills Church for Christmas Eve observances.
We will have a slightly shorter gathering at 5:30 in the Sanctuary, during which our HHKids ministry will lead us in some singing. The 5:30 gathering will also have videos and other features
to delight younger children. 
All are welcome to join us for a more traditional service in the Sanctuary at 7pm (kids too!).
As always, we love having people of all ages in our gatherings. The sound of squirmy kids is the sound of the future of the Church. That said, our Welcome Lounge will be open to parents with squirmy kids. The service will be shown on a screen, and kids are free to read, color, and play.
The Welcome Lounge will not be formally staffed, and there will be no formal children's programs for the evening.
