CHURCH-WIDE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Transition Team Update

This Sunday Joe Long will be speaking on “Problems or Possibilities?” –Numbers 13:17-20; 30-31

The Transition Team and Elders would like to thank everyone who attended the Congregational Meeting this past Sunday. We were encouraged by the turn-out and church body support.

An Encouraging Word: Did you know that Hoffmantown, Road Runner Food Bank, and Kennedy Middle School partner together to serve the families around the school on the fourth Saturday of every month? This past Saturday the Jersak K-Group and others from the congregation volunteered for this outreach and served over 80 families.  There is no greater joy in serving God as you serve others together with your friends. It was a fantastic, well-organized morning where God poured out His blessings on the community and the volunteers. If you or your K-Group want to know more about this ministry, please contact missions@hoffmantown.org, or the Mission Office care of Adrienne Mouck at 858-8660.
