Church Meeting ~ Reserve the evening of Wednesday, July 13 at 7 pm.  The Deacons will present their proposal to restructure the way we allocate offerings and the way we keep funds in so many separate accounts.  They also report that our weekly general fund offerings have not been keeping up with our expenses.  This meeting will be a time of discussion and then for a vote to approve the proposal from the Deacons.

Love INC ~ Please pray for a member of the Hamilton Community.  There is a 62-year-old gentleman from a Hamilton community congregation that had a kidney transplant 29 years ago, unfortunately that kidney is functioning at 16 percent and is failing.  We are asking God to provide a donor who has Type O blood, preferable under 65 years of age and no history of diabetes to provide this gift of love.  Please pray for this family during this trying time and if God is moving you to find out more information regarding what it means to be a donor please email Pastor Steve at Harvest Christian Fellowship at [email protected]
