Each of us has been impacted by evil and suffering.  Have you wondered why is there evil in the world and what is the reason we have to suffer pain and distress?  HSLC will be providing a three session class in February on the first three Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 PM in the church sanctuary that will examine these issues: Questions About Evil and Suffering: Philosophical, Theological, and Psychological Perspectives.  The remaining class is:  Tuesday, February 19:  Meaning in Suffering: Psychological Insights and  Personal Experiences.  The community is welcome.  For additional information, please contact Doug Wessel at 605-641-6110 or

On Sunday, February 24, we will gather as one community, one family, to worship together at one service.  We have a special music collaboration planned with the HSLC Choir and Doctrine.  Immediately following the service, we will fellowship together with a BBQ lunch.  Childcare is provided for the event for Infants - 5th grade.  We look forward to worshiping with you.

Caring Card Ministry

Making cards to send to those who are shut in, grieving, suffering or celebrating something special or just a note to say “Hello” is what we are all about. If you are interested, join us and have a creative hour of fun on the 2nd Sunday each month at 12:15 PM in the Learning Center room 208. Please contact Jamie Johnson 561-351-7233, with any questions. No experience is necessary.

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 February meeting on the 20th will continue the series What Cancer Can't Do and our topic is "Cancer Cannot Shut Out Your Past Memories".

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!
