Caring for Your Soul

“You have one soul;  gaining the whole  world will not help  you if you lose it.”  John Ortberg.  What is your soul?  How do you care for it? What does my soul do?  This is the theme of our new discussion groups.  Men, join us Wednesday mornings, 7-8 AM.  Women, join us Tuesday mornings, 7:30-8:30 AM.  Everyone is welcome.  Pastor Frank will facilitate the discussion.

 Blessing of Backpacks and Diaper Bags

In honor and recognition of our youth returning to school and preschool we will have a blessing of all backpacks, diaper bags and teachers' briefcases at all four of our worship services on August 11 & 12.  We encourage our youth and parents to bring their backpacks, diaper bags and teachers' briefcases to church and place them up  front by the altar for a blessing at the beginning of the service.

All HSLC Events Available Here.

Those who are battling cancer, survivors, spouses, friends and family are invited to share concerns and experiences. We will take a journey to discover ways in which the church, God’s promises and others with similar situations can ease our pain and fears. If you would like more information please contact Cindy Miller at 561-743-0588 or or come to our next meeting the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

Ministry News

Village of Hope Haiti

Our Medical Team who traveled to Haiti in February brought back the disturbing news that infants and mothers were starving from lack of nutritious food.  The Village of Hope Health Center offers a Nutrition Program which can save these infants and moms.  However, the program is extremely underfunded.  Our Pastors and Medical Team members appealed to us, the congregation and friends of HSLC, to help alleviate this problem with our financial support.  And, you came to the rescue with an overwhelming response.  By combining our Lenten offering with your individual donations, to date, we have raised $22,612.00.  This is amazing!!!  Countless additional lives will be saved by the expansion of the Nutrition Program.  Your love, care, and generosity have enabled this to happen.   Thank you and thanks be to God!
