We will have a special time of prayer after the worship service this Friday, July 29th. All are invited to stay for a dynamic time of focused prayer. We will stay in the sanctuary and pray immediately after the sound system has been removed.
Sunset Felucca Ride
We have planned a Felucca ride on the River Nile on August 15. A “felucca” is the shallow sail boat used on the Nile River. It is for the quiet waters; it is not used at sea.
Here in Cairo, the family who owns and operates the felucca usually lives on board. Their belongings are stored in the bins of the benches that line the sides of the felucca. The large table in the center will be lowered to the level of the benches, and their bed rolls will be laid out on top.
By the time we come for our sail, everything is stowed away and the boat is clean and ready for visitors.
Welcome to our new pastor, John Carlock, and his family. He started his ministry to HCC last month. We will have an “official” Welcome Tea next Friday, February 8th. All are welcome to come and celebrate and fellowship with us at this special time.
You are also welcome to come and worship with us every Friday morning at 9am or for the other various meetings and fellowship times. As we unite to worship, hear the Word preached, study and share fellowship, we are strengthened in the Lord and build each other up.
New Living Translation (©2007)
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
John 18:36 New American Standard Bible (©1995)
Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”
But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children–
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
Hebrews 12:12-13 (LB)
“Take a new firm grip with your tired hands, and stand firm on your shaky legs, so that those who follow you, though weak and lame, will not fall and hurt themselves, but rather be healed.”
