Prayer Concerns

Please join together with the HCC family

and lift up these concerns to the Lord.

They are many and diverse, yet each

one so very important.

You can request prayer, or send prayer updates

by clicking the box below. Please designate if the requests are

"confidential", or for the entire HCC family.

Confidential requests will be shared with and prayed for

by our Pastoral staff and Elders only.



- FOR THOSE WE ENCOUNTER EVERYDAY who do not know the saving grace of Jesus Christ. That we may share the Good News in effective ways that bring them to the point of considering what God has done through the death and resurrection of His one and only Son, Jesus Christ. So many of our family, friends, work associates, schoolmates, etc. do not know His saving, loving grace!

- FOR THE HCC BODY: May we continue to devote ourselves to PRAYER, being WATCHFUL, THANKFUL, and PROCLAIMING the GOOD NEWS of JESUS CHRIST in our homes, with family and friends, where we work and play! May we be FULL OF GRACE, WISDOM, TRUTH and LOVE in every way as we REACH UP, REACH OUT, and GROW TOGETHER!
