at 10am - The Beloved

Perhaps the greatest voice Jesus ever heard was a voice from heaven declaring, “You are my son - the Beloved - with you I am well pleased.” Join us as we dare to believe this voice speaks to us over and again.

During Worship 

We welcome kids ages 3 years through 5th graders to join in on this interactive and fun worship in Kids’ Town during the sermon. They will be dismissed from the Worship Center.

Please make sure they are wearing a name tag and keep your phone on vibrate when they are in our care. Pick your child up promptly when worship concludes.

The Nursery is also open.

January Love 1st Challenge

In 2021 we began growing as disciples by challenging ourselves to Love First. Because you were so generous in our Love First Challenges in 2021, we are extending the challenge into 2022 as we continue to grow deeper as disciples.

Random Acts of Kindness

January’s Love First Challenge will be extending random acts of kindness. This might look like dropping by to surprise a neighbor by raking his or her yard, paying for the person behind you in the drive thru line, helping your child create an arts and crafts project to share with a friend, or dropping off treats or groceries to someone you want to remind of your care!

Use the hashtag #HOCCLoveFirst on your social media accounts to help us keep track of our efforts. We want you to share and inspire others, whether that be on Facebook, Instagram, or whatever social media platform you use. Need more ideas of random acts of kindness? Stay tuned to Facebook each week for examples of ways you can extend kindness and Love First.

Ladies Wed. AM Class Winter Study

We are studying Daniel in the Bible and two books by Dr. David Jeremiah entitled, “The Handwriting on the Wall” and “Is This The End?”. You may pay cash or make a check out to Beth Fore for $10. This will cover the cost of the two books.

We have a wonderful opportunity to grow and mature in the Lord this year and to build deeper relationships with God and with one another.  Studying God’s word and enjoying fellowship with our sisters is a great blessing at HOCC, and we hope you will choose to be a part of this class this year!
