Pastor Paul’s Check-in, March 10, 2021

Dear HLPC family,

I’ve heard great things from this past Sunday.  Kirby Moore, our chairman of the Deacons, shared some encouraging words and the HLPC bell choir served us well. In addition, Clif Wilcox preached an excellent sermon from Lamentations.  God has blessed HLPC in so many ways.

Connie and I spent some time with family in Florida.  We were able to see our son, Andrew, his wife, Christina, and our grandson, Linus, in their new home in St. Petersburg.  We then traversed the state to visit Connie’s sister and family in the Stuart area.  Along the way we celebrated Connie’s birthday.  It was a good weekend.

I’m looking forward to celebrating the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus this season.  This Sunday I want to look at “The Road to the Cross” with you as we prepare for Palm Sunday.  Last year, our Easter worship was livestreamed due to COVID.  Lord willing, this year we will celebrate together and do it outdoors.  We are planning to have an egg hunt for kids and serve coffee and donuts.  Please be praying now for good weather that day and, most importantly, God’s blessing on our worship.  Bring yourself, family and/or friends, and a chair!

Your Pastor,
