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.
