On the evening before his crucifixion, Jesus celebrated the Passover (the last Supper) with his disciples. What was the significance of this event for the Jewish people? What meaning does it have for Christians? HSLC is offering a five-session class during Lent that will consider the Exodus of the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt, including the Biblical account in the Book of Exodus, the historical background, and the archeological evidence. The fourth session will examine the implications of the Sinai Covenant that God made with them during the Exodus for the future of freedom in America. The culminating class will involve participation in a Jewish Passover Seder.  There will be two options of class time each Wednesday: 12:00 – 1:00 PM in the sanctuary (Feel free to bring lunch if you wish.) and 6:30 – 7:30 PM in Room 203 of the Learning Center.

Everyone has family & friends who have been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer creates a crisis for
those affected by cancer, the entire family, and their loved ones. The diagnosis is frightening. The treatment is difficult. The aftershocks are long lasting. Families facing cancer often look for a place where they can find the support and understanding they need to cope with the long term effects of cancer.  It was for this reason that the Cancer Support Ministry was founded at HSLC in 2018.  Join us the 3rd Wednesday each month at 6:00 PM in the Learning Center room 207.  Our next meeting will be on FEBRUARY 21.

Are you looking to socialize and enjoy time with other couples?  Do you want to expand your Christian friendships?  Join us the 2nd Sunday of the month at 6:00 PM in the Learning Center room 203 for fellowship with other couples, hosted by Lois and Marty Light. For information, please contact the church office. Childcare is available upon request! Contact the church office.  Our next meeting is FEBRUARY 18 due to the Super Bowl.

A new church app is available!  This app does everything the old one did and more!  In addition to giving, the church calendar and church directory, the new app will also have all event sign ups in one place.  You can also watch each Sunday's service with the app.  We encourage you to watch the video and download the new app.  As always, if you have any questions or need to troubleshoot, please contact the church office at 561-624-9663.
