Mask Update

We have updated our mask protocols in part with the CDC and NMDOH updates from last week. If you have been fully vaccinated + 14 days or have had COVID-19 and antibodies are present in your blood test, please feel free to not wear a mask here at Hoffmantown. If not, we encourage you to continue wearing your mask. We also encourage you to do physical distancing, when possible. In working with our children (who cannot be vaccinated), we would ask you to wear masks. If you are concerned about being present in our worship service with mask-less people, we are offering room B100 to anyone during services. B100 will require a mask during that time. Thank you so much, church, for your patience, humbleness, and spirit of cooperation during all these difficult months.


New Summer Sermon Series

Nine character qualities. Qualities that impact a Christian’s life. Evidence of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We call them “the fruit of the Spirit.” Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Deep down, we know that a healthy, Christian life is a fruitful life. The model for fruitfulness is God, our Creator, and Redeemer. In this sermon series, we will examine how each character trait is to be cultivated in our lives. Our families, friends, fellow church members, and our world are craving for us to exhibit this type of fruitfulness to them. Join us this summer as we become more fruitful!


Prayer Needs for Hoffmantown: (Please Pray with Us!)
1. For the Lord to show the Hoffmantown leadership the right people for our Children’s Ministry Lead and Kids Express Director.
2. For the Lord to encourage our Christian servants to volunteer to help with VBS and be working in the hearts of all the children and volunteers who come to VBS; that they will learn to know, love, and proclaim Christ.
3. For the Lord to encourage skilled Christian musicians to come forward with an interest in being in our orchestra. Specifically, a drummer, and violinists.
4. For the Lord to bring help for our janitorial, set-up, and maintenance department – whether it be full time employees, or volunteers to come forward to help. Help us to use what He gives us.

Destination Dig (VBS 2021)

VBS 2021 is headed to present-day Israel where discovery awaits at Destination Dig. Kids will unearth more than dirt as they dig up exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. As junior archaeologists, kids will explore real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus! Along the way, they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13, that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.

Hoffmantown Kids VBS is a FREE EVENT, June 7-11th, for kids who completed kindergarten through 6th grade. Registration for children is available at: or in the Kids Ministry Foyer.

It takes over 100 volunteers to do Vacation Bible School for our community. Will you prayerfully consider serving with this awesome team? We are currently seeking to fill lots of volunteer roles with all kinds of skill-sets both in classes with kids and not. We have a place for you! The Volunteer booth is in the Fellowship Mall. You are welcome to contact Sarah Goodrich at to sign up or for more information.

Specifically, VBS is looking for a great Recreation Team Leader. This person should enjoy playing games (both with water and without) with kids completed 1st-completed 6th grade. Games usually include large group games, relays, water games, and more. We are more than happy to train if this is something you would enjoy but do not have experience doing. If this is something you can see yourself doing, please stop by the VBS tent or email Sarah Goodrich at


Kids Ministry Leaders Needed

Kids Ministry is experiencing lots of growth in our Nursery division (2 year olds and younger)! We are needing to add more leaders to care for and teach our littlest ones. We have openings during the 9:30am service in our infant and toddler rooms. Nursery team members serve one month at a time during the 9:30am service. So, as a team member, you would serve one month, attend service the next month, and then serve again the following month. We are anticipating this growth to continue as we head into the fall so this is an ongoing need. To serve, please contact Sarah Goodrich in the Kids Ministry at or 858-8601.



Mission Prayer Moment

This week the Mission Council is praying for continued unity within the Mission Council. The Mission Council works hard to make sure that our church is going in the direction that God would have us go to spread His Word. They do this by being in constant prayer and communication with each other, and by keeping their ears open to where God leads Hoffmantown. Please join the Mission Office in praying for the Mission Council.
