Potluck and games – January 31, 2020

We look forward to gathering together on Friday, January 31 for our first ever HCC SOUPer Bowl (please note that we will not be viewing American football but will be having fun with some games of our own).

This potluck will run a little differently, so please note the changes:
Groups/Families of 3+ please bring a pot of soup/stew to share.
Couples/Singles (this includes youth attending without family) please bring drinks or loaf of bread to share.

We will gather at 5:30pm, pray and then begin tasting all of the delicious soups!  At about 7pm (if the green space is available) we will invite any to join us who would like to participate in some group “Minute to Win-It” type games.

Since we are a blessed community, we would also like to be a blessing to others. During the SOUPer Bowl event, we will be collecting 1K bags of rice for the Family Fund.  They will use our donations to supplement the food bags that are given to the Sudanese refugee families that they support.  Thank you in advance for your generosity!!

HCC Christmas Eve Service – 2019

HCC’s Christmas Eve Service is planned for Tuesday, December 24 starting at 7pm. This is our annual tradition with reading the scriptures and singing some favorite Carols. There is always a Christmas Story for the children and the tradition of lighting the candles starting from the Christ Candle on the Advent Wreath.

Christmas Carols at the Basilica – Dec 12 @ 7:30pm

Christmas Carols at the Basilica will be celebrated on Thursday, December 12th from 7:30pm – 9:30pm.

Come and join us in worshiping and proclaiming the truth of Jesus’ birth! The angles proclaimed the good news, and we want to follow their example. Come and rejoice with us! Our Savior was born in Bethlehem many years ago and is born again in our hearts today.

The lovely tradition of hearing the scripture that recorded Jesus’ birth, and singing carols in response, has filled the Basilica with wondrous music for many years. It is heartwarming to hear carols familiar to us from country to country, and year to year. There is one universal church, and you are welcome to join and participate or be blessed by hearing the good news!

This is a combined churches service from St Clare’s, the Basilica, and HCC. It is an Interdenominational, International, English language service, and all are welcome. Many from HCC take leading parts in this lovely, yearly service. We hope that all those who are not usually able to attend church may come to hear about our Lord’s birth.

The Basilica is located on Al Haram St, Korba, Heliopolis. Copy and paste this link for a map to find the Cathedral Basilica:

All are welcome! Please invite your friends and neighbors too.

 

Worship Evening Friday, October 18, 2019 at 7pm

You are invited!

You are invited to join with us for an evening of worship on Friday, October 18, starting at 7pm.
What a joyful time – to come and worship the LORD. We are blessed with this freedom here in Egypt, and we are very grateful for this. It is a significant time, when we gather in Jesus’ Name and unite to worship, pray, and read the Word together.

As we humble ourselves, come into agreement with the Grace and Truth that Jesus brought, and in agreement with each other in praising and rejoicing in the LORD, please consider these scriptures:

Psalm 104:33
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

Psalm 146:2 I will praise the Lord while I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

Romans 14:11 For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall give praise to God.”

Welcome Meal (Potluck) – Friday, September 13, 2019 @ 5:30pm

It’s almost like a new year here at HCC, when many new comers arrive during August and September. Also, many of those who traveled for the summer have returned.
Well, it’s more like a Family Reunion! Time to get caught up with what folks did during the summer, and a great time to get to know our new arrivals.

We will meet in the fellowship hall at 5:30pm. Please bring plenty of your favorite foods to share. We need to just sit and talk to those who have moved here and share some of our own experiences about adjusting to a new culture.

This is a great opportunity to connect and reconnect and encourage each other, and to have a bite to eat.

Farewell Brunch for Pastor Dan & Kathy @ 10:30am on Friday, March 8, 2019

Pastor Dan and Kathy’s time as our pastoral couple is coming to an end. We know that we will miss them very much. Even though we are an expatriate church where people are continually coming and going, it is always hard to say “good-bye.”

We are planning this Farewell Brunch to give everyone a chance to say “good-bye” and share what’s on their hearts.

The brunch will start right after the worship service, at 10:30am on Friday, March 8th. It will be potluck style with everyone bringing lite foods to share.

We will have time to bless and encourage Pastor Dan and Kathy as they prepare for this transition and the next steps in their lives.

Christmas Eve Candle Light Service – Monday, December 24, 2018

HCC’s Christmas Eve Candle Light Service will start at 7 p.m. on Monday, December 24th.

Each year, we are blessed to be able to gather together to worship, praise, sing carols and lift up the name of the LORD Jesus as we celebrate the remembrance of His birth on earth. What a privilege and pleasure to do so here in Egypt, the country that Joseph and Mary brought Him to not long after his birth.

Come and celebrate with us! All are welcome.
