Holy Spirit Lutheran Church has an Honor Garden and Gathering Area between our Church Sanctuary and the Learning Center. The Honor Garden has a brick paver pathway that contains commemorative bricks.  Purchasing a  brick is a great way to honor a friend, family member,  or memorialize a loved one.

 

The Honor Garden enhances our beautiful campus and is a permanent tribute to our family and loved ones for years to come.

 

Bricks are four inches tall by eight inches long (4”x8”).  They can be engraved with three lines, each 18 characters (including spaces) in length.  The cost of each brick is $75.

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.  Our next meeting will be on February 15.

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 Lois & Marty at 941-468-0841. Childcare is available! Our next meeting is FEBRUARY 12.

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.
