Join us on the 4th of July weekend for our second drive-in worship service of the summer. A few reminders: The time has been shifted to 10AM because of the July heat. Our Sunday School classes will meet at 9AM. Please follow the health guidelines that we have all learned already especially social distancing and masks.Give people space. We want to care for and to protect each other. If you don’t feel well, it is better to stay at home and watch the worship service later in the day on our YouTube channel. If you want to hum along or sing quietly, please assess how close you are to others and wear your mask. If you think you are too close to others then you probably are. Communion will be provided in individual packets, but it is better to bring your own.You can stay in your car or sit outside in your own chair – whatever you feel comfortable doing.
A few special things about this weekend’s worship service: We continue in our Camp Christiime theme, and our Co-Pastor Ali Miguel will share a camp story called “The Palace Made By Music.” We will also be hearing about our new Peace Pole. and our Blessing Box has arrived.
A Note from Our New Co-Pastor:
Many of you already know me, but for those of you who do not, my name is Ali Miguel and on July 1st, I officially began serving New Horizons Christian Church as one of your Co-Pastors.
As of right now, my husband Adrian and I and our four children currently live in Medina, Ohio. We are in the process of selling our home and looking for a new home closer to Akron. In between house hunting and moving projects, I am also taking classes at Phillips Theological Seminary. I am down to my last three classes, which means I will finish the PTS Ministry Training Program in December. My life is a busy life, but it is a beautiful kind of busy and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Serving in this new role as Co-Pastor of NHCC, is something I have been excited about since the day I first submitted my resume for consideration. I mean, who wouldn’t be excited to share life and the Good News of Jesus alongside such a wonderful, kind, compassionate, generous, and loving community of faith. And now that so many things have changed in our world, it sure seems like the world could use some new life, especially from a wonderful, kind, compassionate, generous, and loving Body of Christ such as ours. Being able to do new things together as a loving Community of Faith, the loving Body of Christ, that brings new life to the world, is very exciting and energizing to me. The possibilities are endless!
So, let our journey begin. May it be a walk of faith that makes us stronger, brings us closer, and equips us to do the good work in our neighborhoods, communities, and the world. May it be a journey that shares the love of God with all we meet through everything we do.
In grace and peace,
