"Making Love Last A Lifetime: Biblical Perspectives On Love, Marriage and Sex"
Youth News In honor of Father's Day, we won't be having UMYF tonight. Next week (6/27), get ready for our annual Beach Sweep on the Isle of Palms! We'll meet at the CLLC at 5:00.
Family Ministries is proud to announce the next Families to Families Work Day being held on Saturday, July 10th. We are looking for individuals, families, teens - anyone who would like to spend a few hours helping a fellow Hibben member. Email email@example.com or call 452-7265 if you are able to help. Let us know how many adults and kids are in your volunteer group and what hours you are available that day. We will match you with a need and contact you with the details closer to the work day. We are also accepting requests for anything you would like a hand with around the house - whether it be weeding, cleaning a fan you can't reach, or changing a filter, to name a few things. There is no fee for this service - it's just a way for families to help, connect, and extend our brotherly and sisterly love for other Hibben members.

Welcome to Hibben!
We are here this morning to worship God. Through our songs, words of praise, prayers and scripture reading, we give honor and glory to God. Wondrous things happen as we worship. Lives are changed. The presence of God brings hope, comfort, healing and joy. Let us worship in gladness. Jesus, the Lord of Life is with us.

The Seekers Class is beginning a new study "Making Love Last A Lifetime: Biblical Perspectives On Love, Marriage And Sex" by Adam Hamilton. This study explores love, marriage and sexuality from a biblical perspective. Its purpose is two-fold: to help participants understand God's plan and purpose for love relationships between men and women and for the covenant of marriage, and to offer real help for achieving the kind of relationship God intends for every couple. The Seekers Class offers adults of all ages the opportunity to discuss a wide range of contemporary and traditional Christian issues. Come, participate, listen, learn and enjoy.
