Your invitation to join us
Reach Up (to God) First we have to establish our “vertical relationship” with the Lord and get ourselves in line so that we can truly love ourselves the way He intends.
Reach In (to our church family) Then comes our “horizontal relationships”. It follows that if we love the Lord, we must love others. This year we are focusing on becoming a Proverbs 31 woman in our home, community and personal life. Find your spot in this process and be part of the blessed life.
Reach Out (to our community and beyond) God’s great love will then naturally also reach out beyond our church family to our world. We are to be the Lord’s hands and feet. What a privilege we have!

Women’s Christian Fellowship and Willing Workers’ Circle are open to all women of the church. In fact, you are encouraged to participate in both if your schedule permits. WCF takes care of “the nuts and bolts” of the church’s needs (like communion and nursery) and has quarterly events to provide fellowship times for all women of the church. In addition, due to the wonderful response of our congregation, we will again offer monthly service opportunities for the whole church to participate in. Willing Workers’ Circle meets monthly with fellowship and programs and these are held on Wednesday mornings. WWC ladies have a wonderful list of service projects planned as well. The Willing Workers Circle is continuing the theme from last year: REACH IN and take care of our church family, REACH OUT to do things for our community and beyond, and as always…
REACH UP TO THE LORD!

Women’s Ministries Ministry
Birthday/Anniversary Fellowship Janet Jordan 587-2351 The last Sunday of October, January, April, and July is when we celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Everyone is asked to bring sandwiches or dessert. Volunteers will prepare drinks, set out food. Set up and clean up of the fellowship area are included in the duties. Communion Judy Williamson 787-1979 Those who volunteer to serve in this ministry prepare communion for all services in one month. There are two volunteers/month, so please coordinate a routine with your partner that best fits your schedules. Laundering baptismal robes and towels are also your responsibility. Benevolence Meals Susan O’Hara 745-2867 This ministry’s purpose is to show love to hurting families of the church who have lost loved ones. The HCC staff notifies Susan, who then will coordinate the preparation and serving of a meal for the family at the church building. She will notify her volunteers as needed. Please notify Susan if you would like to help with this ministry. Angel Tree
Stephanie Evans-Miller 587-3658 and Jennifer Grashel This project will provide the opportunity to make some “special angels” in our church and the community joyful at Christmas time. Illness Meals Donna Dudgeon 334-9760 This ministry provides a meal for families of women who have been hospitalized or ill. When notified by the HCC staff, Donna will notify her volunteers to prepare and deliver a meal. Please notify Donna if you would like to join this ministry.
One time each month the volunteers clean the church kitchen and straighten up. The instructions are found in a notebook on the kitchen counter. Call Judy for any clarifications.
New Mothers’ Meals
This ministry provides meals for the mothers of newborns. Cammy will contact the volunteers as needed. Give Cammy a call if you would like to help with this ministry.
The nursery is available during both services Sunday morning, Sunday evening services, and Wednesday evening services. Children under 3 years old are welcome to play in the nursery under adult supervision. There are also positions for window registration and monthly cleaning of the toys. If you would like to join this ministry, give Angel a call.
There are many slots to fill. Please consider volunteering your time and talents: “many hands make light work”. Traditionally, these ministries have been Women’s Ministries; but in recent years here at HCC, many of these are now done as a family or couple. WCF invites you to consider how to live our legacy of love by helping as the Lord calls you in these areas. Please sign up in the lobby or contact the chairperson directly.

Willing Workers Meeting Apr. 10, 2013 @ 9:30 a.m. in Fireside Room Program: POTLUCK and Election of Officers + VBS prizes for “VBS store and Pocket Lady” Hostesses: Marilyn Fraunfeltner and Jean Knee Roll Call: VBS memories… Visitation: Betty Love and Anna Lou Corbin Devotions: Catherine Eddleblute Note: Prizes for the Pocket Lady need to be small and light enough to fit in her numerous pockets on her apron. She needs MANY such items because there are so many little ones that say their verse to her: What a wonderful reason to “stock up”! Prizes for the VBS store are redeemed at various point levels, so there is a need for little, inexpensive prizes (like stickers, minibubbles, decorative pens or pencils) through bigger, more expensive items (like Beanie Babies, craft projects, or a set of art supplies). Again, the little items are consumed at a much greater rate than the expensive ones. Watch for the display in April in the lobby where the congregation is going to be invited to drop off donations or bring yours to the April meeting!

Ephesians 3:17b-19 “I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge— that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
We have been blessed: Letâ€™s be sure to give Him our BEST!
With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saintsâ€Ś
Serve one another throught love.
I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing Your praise before the heavenly beings.
