Member Lynn MacNaughton

It is with great sadness that our beloved member and long-time friend of HMPC, Lynn MacNaughton, passed away on Monday, February 12. A memorial service will be held at HMPC, date to be announced at a later time.  Please send cards and notes of remembrance and condolence to James MacNaughton, 7 Fredon Marksbro Road, Newton, NJ 07860.

 

Faithworks

This lesson is based on Genesis 9: 8-17 which refers to God’s promise to Noah and all mankind through the sign of the rainbow. We will discuss Noah’s faith and obedience in building the arch and how we can rely on God’s promises to come to pass when we believe. We will make tissue paper plate rainbows and do a fun arch quiz. I pray that the children can learn to rely on God no matter how big the storm may seem.

 

Reading Group @ HMPC

The Book Club meets on the 4th Friday

of the month and anyone is invited to

come and discuss the books. Our gathering time is changing from 1 – 3PM to 1:30-3:30PM so please make a note.

If you have never been a part of a book club or used to be and would like to join a club again, please consider joining the HPMC Book Group. There’s nothing to do: why not try coming for one meeting and see how enjoyable it is!
