"We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by."

​- Will Rogers

HSLC is joining the MISSION! What is the mission? Throughout the year, the Southeast division of the Honor Flight Network, flies local WWII, Korean & Vietnam War veterans to Washington, DC to visit the memorials built to honor their service and sacrifices. The top priority is to give America's most senior heroes — survivors of World War II and veterans of any war with a terminal illness who wish to visit their memorial. Since America felt it was important to build a memorial to the service and the ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Honor Flight Network believes it is equally important that they actually get to visit and experience their memorials.  Click here to learn more about Honor Flight Network.

The next Honor Flight returns on Saturday May 21 to Palm Beach International Airport. Would you please join us as we welcome them home? The crowd gathers at 6:30PM, the plane lands at 7:20PM.  For more information, please contact Cara Rucker at

What: HIS KIDS and Soulfire Family Beach Day Event
When: May 22,2022 at 12:30
Where: Juno Beach, Park at the back of United Methodist Church and a walk across the street to the beach

Come join HIS KIDS and Soulfire families for a day at the beach! Swim, laugh, eat, bask in the sun, and build your faith-based friendships. Lunch will be provided.


Mindfulness (aka meditation) has been proven to reduce the stress of everyday light, as well as being useful in treating medical issues such as cardiovascular disease, depression, and PTSD in both adults and children.

Join Autumn Light Ministry as we welcome Etan Boritzer in an exploration of the meaning of mindfulness along with a guided practice session. Etan will explain the general principles of mindfulness and then lead an easy, seated meditation to give us insights into the inner calmness that can be achieved by us all. The technique taught by Etan can be applied to everyday situations with our families, friends and society. We will meet in the HSLC sanctuary and you are invited to stay for light refreshments following the session.

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 Worship Center Family room.  We will host our first in-person meeting since 2020 on May 18!

Calling all women!!!  Come build your faith-based friendships every second Friday of the month at 6:30 PM right here at the church! Bunco is a fun and easy game played by 12 or more moms with food, fun, and friendships. Bring your laughter and a dish to share.  For more info or to sign up please contact Diana Cosgrave at  We will meet in the Learning Center room 203/205 the 2nd Friday of the month. Our next meeting is May 13.

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.

How You Can Volunteer at HSLC or Help Those in Need

We’re all connected

Those of you interested will make arrangements using the flowers provided.  Flower deliverers will have 3-4 in which to take flowers to.  Let’s cheer someone up with flowers blessed from our worship and prayer!  Please contact Mary Ann Williams at: if you would like to participate.
