The Youth of our Congregation are sponsoring the Thanksgiving Food Drive.  For three weeks, November 3 - 18 the youth of our congregation are asking that you bring non-perishable food items to donate to our food pantry.  The goal weight of food that we are challenged to raise this year is 3,645 pounds. The goal weight is based on the weight of all our confirmation students and adult volunteers.  The food will be brought to the food pantry and distributed to under resourced families here in our community before Thanksgiving.  If every person in our congregation brings 10 pounds of food we will go over the goal weight with no problem.  Thank you for responding to Jesus’ call to feed the hungry.

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 at 6:00 PM in the Learning Center room 208.   Our November meeting on the 21st will continue the series What Cancer Can't Do and our topic is "Cancer Cannot Overcome Your Courage".

Our HSLC Family and the community is invited to our Thanksgiving Eve Service and Fellowship on November 21 at 7:00 PM.  Please bring a pre-sliced pie and  join us after the service for fellowship.  Childcare is provided for infants - 3rd grade.  The music will be contemporary.

HOPE IN THE DARK is the theme of a 3 week discussion group being offered by Pastor Frank.  You will  discover how God can meet you even in life’s most difficult moments.  We will be reading a book together by Pastor Craig Groeschel titled Hope In The Dark.  We will meet Wednesdays, Nov. 28 and Dec. 5 and 12, 6-7:30 PM.  The cost of the book is $15.  Scholarships are available.  Click here to register or contact the office at 624-9663 or  Childcare is available upon request. 

Travel on the church bus with the group from HSLC to the Christmas Pageant!  We will attend the 2:00 PM show on December 2.  If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Cindy Miller at (561) 743-0588 or  Space is limited.  You will need to purchase your own tickets and choose your seats at

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!
