The Bridge

Summer greetings to you all.   I hope your summer is going well and are able to find time for rest at some point.  Below is a list of things going on at HTLC and ways to get involved.

This past week the council met, along with 10 visitors, to discuss the proposal to place the Saturday 5:30pmworship service on hiatus while the worship committee and myself work together to reevaluate the ministry.  After much fruitful and informative conversation, the council voted in favor to place the Saturday service on hiatus.  Worship will take place this Saturday, June 16th, but then will be placed on a hiatus until further notice.

We are gearing up for another Food Distribution on Saturday June 23rd.  If you are interested in volunteering you can sign up in the entry way of the church.  We NEED volunteers.  Please sign up this weekend on the clip boards in the entry way.

Vacation Bible School will take place August 5-9th.  This year our program will be "God's Good Creation."  Registration forms are located at the Usher station in the back of the church.  Please pick one up for your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.  More details can be found on the web page by clicking on this link http://www.htlcdbq.com/children.html

Our grief support group has begun and will meet every Sunday from 4-5:30pm in the conference room.  The journey of grief is a painful process, and you do not need to walk it alone. We would like to encourage you to come to the special seminar and support group offered here at HTLC called GriefShare. The materials specifically address topics and issues for those who are grieving thedeath of a loved one.  You could be grieving a loss from this year or 20 years ago, all are welcome to come and join us. GriefShare meets weekly and the content is Christ-centered and biblical. You will find this to be a place where you can be around people who understand the pain of your loss. You will be prayed for and learn valuable information that will help you through this difficult season of your life.  This program is open to all members and non-members.  If you know someone who is hurting, please pass this information along to them.

We are still in need of volunteers to help assist in leading worship.  If you are willing to help Usher, be a Communion Assistant, Reader, Altar Guild, etc please click on the link for the appropriate service time and sign up using Google Doc Forms.  When you sign up, you do not need to click save as it automatically saves itself.  You just need to log out and your entry will be saved.
