Day 9 – Thankful For My Church HWC

Today, I am thanking God for my church family at HWC. We have been members for 5 years and it’s a great honor and privilege to serve under the leadership of Pastor Randy and Lucie Needham.

When we discovered HWC, from the very first day we knew this is where we belong. We have experience love on a new level and they have redefined what family is for me.

Those that are planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. (PS 92:13)

A church serves the local community and that is simply what we have experienced.

The church is not the building but community of believers, body of Christ.

    I just checked out the website of your church and notice the Morning Service shedule, I will watch the live video streaming, this Sunday, as my church meet in the afternoons and the time zone in the UK, will allow me to.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you and your family and may His face shine on you all.
