Summer Sermon Series 2020

Liturgy of the Ordinary | Sacred Practices in Everyday Life
Join us this summer for worship, prayer, study, a summer all-church project, and actives for families, children & youth. Learn more here.

Our Summer Sermon series began Sunday, June 7, at 10 a.m. Based on Tish Harrison Warren’s book Liturgy of the Ordinarywe’ll learn how to become more aware of God’s presence in some of the overlooked moments and routines of our day and ask ourselves the question: How do we embrace the sacred in the ordinary and the ordinary in the sacred? This pandemic has forced us to both adapt and become more in tune with the rhythms of our daily lives. Come and discover the holiness of your every day.

Sundays

Worship (10 a.m.)
Since we will not be worshipping together in-person until it is safe to do so, you are invited to participate in an online service via livestream on these Sundays at 10 a.m. You have two options for this:

Instead of streaming, you may also call in for audio only via a cell phone or land line using the toll-free number 1-844-854-2222. Access code: 838675.

Each Sunday afternoon, a video of that morning’s online service will be posted to our YouTube Channel. You can subscribe here

Other Ways to Stay Connected

The Okayest Summer Ever!
Many of our summer plans have changed and yet that doesn’t mean we can’t make time for some God moments and a little fun! Beginning on Monday, June 22, we’re inviting our children and families to join us for six weeks of the most “Okayest Summer Ever!” Read more here. For PreK-5th grade families, but all ages are welcome to sign-up. Sign-up here by June 19. Contact Erin Tyler or Daniel Lyvers for more information.

Summer All-Church Project
Gathering around tables to share a meal and conversation is not just a story of Jesus, or one that we share in each week on Sundays but rather one that is happening all around us, all of the time. Learn more here about The Table – A Collaborative Cookbook from HRCC is a chance for your to share a favorite recipe (or four!) as well as a story about your time around a table. 

Lavender Labyrinth at the Tylers
Come take a walk along the labyrinth, enjoy the view of the mountains, and just Be for a short time. No need to let us know ahead of time, just park along the labyrinth fence. Please be mindful of the property and stay within the labyrinth area. Read more here.

Connect with a Friend
We have friends in our congregation who would love snail mail during this time when we are not able to meet in person. Most of these adults do not have internet. Would your child like to send someone a picture or write a letter once a week to someone to share some love? Email Erin Tyler and we’ll get you connected.
