This Week’s Worship Service (August 9, 2020)
Today, John Torrison will preach about “No Other Name But the Name Jesus (Hebrews 7:22-28).” Today’s songs will Victory In Jesus by Eugene M. Bartlett, arr. by T. Cottrell, Hosanna (Praise Is Rising) by Paul Baloche, Brenton Brown, arr by Dan Galbraith, and King Of Kings by Brooke Ligertwood, Jason Ingram, and Scott Ligertwood.
We are looking forward to seeing you again this Sunday at 9:30am as you feel comfortable attending! There are some things we would like you to keep in mind for the safety of the congregation. First, masks are mandatory by everyone attending on-site, per the governor’s orders. We also ask that you continue practicing social distancing habits by maintaining 6 feet distance between family groups; as you take your seats in the worship center, please keep three (3) empty seats in between family groups. We will be doing our part to keep our building sanitized; please do your part by washing your hands often for at least 20 seconds. For more information and a list of frequently asked questions concerning our reopening plan, visit www.hoffmantownchurch.org/reopen.
We understand that many of you may not feel comfortable or may have concerns about returning, and we want you to know that there is absolutely no pressure for you to attend on-site until you feel ready. We would encourage you to continue to be discerning if you are in a higher-risk category. If you currently have any symptoms or have been around anyone with coronavirus recently, we ask that you please stay home and watch online until you are free from symptoms or exposure to COVID-19.
We will continue to stream our service live on Hoffmantown.Online, Facebook, and YouTube, and we’d love for you to join us on any of those platforms. For those that decide to join us in person, we look forward to seeing you again!

Disciple Maker Training
Women, mark your calendars for September 1! Would you like encouragement and training in making disciples? Whether you are personally making disciples now, or would like to get started, a new monthly class called “Disciple Makers Training and Support” will give you instruction and encouragement for a lifetime of disciple making. Jeni Civerolo and Leslie Fuentes will be starting this class based on the book, Personal Disciple Making by Chris Adsit on Tuesday, September 1 from 6:30-8:30pm, in room B100 at Hoffmantown. We will meet the first Tuesday of each month. Because we will be meeting only once a month, we will need 14 months to complete the course. You only need to bring two things: a heart for disciple making, and the book. A notebook will be provided along with SNACKS! If you would like to sign up or have any questions, please contact Leslie at (505) 259-6428, or Jeni at (505) (463-0170).
Tuesday Afternoons is a time for widows and widowers to come together and study the Word of God, pray together and join each other in fellowship and fun. Currently, we are having this event as a Zoom meeting. Our next Zoom get-together is on Tuesday July 28 from 1:30-3pm. For questions, or if you don’t have the Zoom link, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 858-8633.
COME HOME- Sunday School Class through ZOOM
If you have not been able to connect in a Sunday School class since COVID hit, please email us at email@example.com. We would be happy to work with you and get you into a ZOOM online class. If you know of someone who is not connected into a Sunday School class, please invite them into your class.
Daily Prayer Reminder
Remember, 6pm we pray! Each and every day! We are praying for our new pastor, our pastor search team, and our church family. This is one way we can pray together as a church body during this time of sheltering in place.
STUDENT & FAMILY MINISTRIES
AWANA Volunteers Needed
We are preparing for another year of Awana here at Hoffmantown. We will be offering in person club attendance as well as remote learning for kids 2 years-8th grade. We have a need for leaders in all clubs, but the need is critical in our preschool and K-2nd grade areas. We are anticipating yet another year of growth as we have grown 15-20% each year, the last 2 years. Families are hungry for their kids to be able to attend some type of activity in person. We believe the Lord is going to bring more un-saved kids to us then ever before. So, we need help. In order to serve, you will need to pass a background check. You need to be available 6:00-8:30 on Wednesday evenings. Awana experience is not necessary, we will teach you! If you are interested please contact Sarah in Kids Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about Awana at Hoffmantown can be found at https://www.hoffmantownchurch.org/awana/.
Kids Express Preschool is seeking a few Co-Teachers and Substitutes
Hoffmantown Church membership is not required for this position. We are seeking born-again Believers to help lay a strong spiritual and academic foundation in our preschoolers. If you are interested, please contact Darlene Dickson at email@example.com.
Robert and Cirena Smith
Robert “Smitty” and his wife Cirena are our beloved missionaries who work with Ethnos 360 in the Philippines. They are stateside on furlough, and have expressed some needs they have. If you are interested in coming alongside this Hoffmantown family you can contact Adrienne Mouck in the Mission Office at Missions@hoffmantown.org or (505)858-8660. Their needs are:
• Eventually we will need a new used vehicle as the one we are using now is only available until the middle of October. We’re hoping to leave our daughter with a safe reliable vehicle when we return to the Philippines next year.
• With our daughter starting college soon at GCU, she will need a laptop of her own. She is hoping to get the new Mac Book Air. School starts online after Labor Day but Lord willing she’ll move onto campus late September.
• More of a wish than a need is to have a washer and dryer so as not to have to go out each week to the laundry mat.
• Ministry donations are also welcome and can be made directly at https://ethnos360.org/missionaries/robert-and-cirena-smith.
Elders: Tom Caudill & Ben Wyne
Deacons: Allan Rider & Drayton Boozer Operations: Sam Mouck
