From the Finance Committee
After a long period of prayer and discussion, the Finance Committee has recommended, and the church leadership (Pastoral Staff/Operations and Personnel Committee) have accepted, that the Life Resource Center (LRC), the church bookstore, be closed. While the LRC is a ministry, it is operated at a significant loss. COVID-19 impacts, as well as competition from Amazon and other online competitors, were major factors in this difficult stewardship decision. The church leadership is prayerfully considering alternatives to the LRC.

KIDS MINISTRY 

Kids Ministry Sunday Schedule Changes
Hoffmantown Kids ROC (9:30 Worship for Kinder-4th graders) will begin meeting twice a month rather than every week beginning this Sunday. We are beyond excited to welcome our elementary school age kiddos on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sunday in the Worship Center. Please remember many of these children are just now learning to sit in Big Church, so there may be a little extra wiggle while they adjust. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we come alongside these parents teaching their young ones. We will have Praise Packs available for all children in the foyer on these days. If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact Sarah Goodrich in Kids Ministry at sarahg@hoffmantown.org.

 

Volunteers Needed/Registration Now Open for Risen! A Family Easter Journey
At Risen!, families will discover who our Savior is and where He is found. Risen! Is for families with kids 2 years through 6th grade. Families will embark on a 45-minute journey through several stations to discover why Jesus came for us, where He is now, and how we can join Him there. We need adults to serve in a variety of roles over the course of several 2-hour shifts. More information and volunteer registration is available at hoffmantownchurch.org/kids/risen-volunteer/. Registration for a specific time slot for families is required for this event. To register your family, go to hoffmantown.org/events/risen. The deadline to register is Friday, March 26th.
