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 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.
