Coronavirus Updates

In person attendance of Sunday morning worship services is cancelled for the foreseeable future.

We will provide a live video stream of the service, Sundays at 9:30am...see below for 3 ways to stream the sermon live.




The COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity for us, as followers of Christ, to serve our community and share God’s abundant and endless love for people. There are ways we can serve through HVC but we encourage you to have open eyes and hearts to see the opportunities that God places before you every day.

“For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.” (Galatians 5:13)

 

God at Work?

During hard times, God is often visible and at work...serving, loving, growing, supporting......sometimes through people, circumstances or by "hearing" a truth quietly in your own heart. Share your experience!

Ways you can support those around you
Serve the older people in our congregation

Because this population has a greater health risk if they contract COVID-19, we can help reduce their exposure in the following ways:

  • Go grocery shopping
  • Pick up medications
  • Run other errands
  • Call to connect/check in
Donate food to HVC for children who receive free or reduced-price meals at school

We are collecting food and assembling bags for families from Warren Elementary and Cockeysville Middle Schools to pick up at the Point. Other food items are welcome, but those listed below are most needed. You may drop food at the Point on weekdays from 9 to 5pm. Please drop your donation off in the bins outside The Point church office building.

  • Bread
  • Crackers
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • $10-15 gift cards to Walmart, Target or local grocery store
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned veggies
  • Cereal
  • Snack foods (granola bars, Goldfish, pretzels, etc)
  • Soup
  • Fresh fruit (bananas, oranges, apples)
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • Pancake mix
  • Syrup
  • Beans
  • Tortillas
  • Toiletries
Invite others to stream the service on Sunday

People may be more receptive to a virtual invitation to church. It’s also an opportunity to share the hope and peace that comes through Jesus Christ during this uncertain time.

Watch on the HVC website.
The stream starts Sundays just before 9:30am.

Care for our healthcare workers and their families

The healthcare workers in our congregation may need support in a variety of ways as they are taxed in the coming weeks as the coronavirus continues to spread. This may include caring for children, helping with household responsibilities, running errands and more.

Pray for your neighbors, friends and family

We are glad to pray along with you! Send in a prayer request.

Our government leaders and medical personnel on the front lines of the pandemic can use our prayers, as well as those suffering from the coronavirus and the economic impact from it.

Let us pray with you

Write notes of encouragement or scripture verses

These notes can be put in the food bags we’re distributing or given to your neighbors. As followers of Christ, we live with a peace the world does not understand. Share that with others. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)

Stay connected and offer support to neighbors, family and friends

As our physical contact with others is decreasing, we can still FaceTime, call or text those in our lives. www.zoom.us is a free and easy-to-use videoconferencing tool.

Offer a word of encouragement or scripture verse on social media

We can all use encouragement and hope, the real hope in Christ. If you don’t know what to post, consider sharing HVC’s Facebook posts or those from Next Gen.

Look for "God sightings"

Please share with us a moment, interaction or observation you've had of God moving in these challenging times. During hard times, God is often visible and at work...serving, loving, growing, supporting......sometimes through people, circumstances or through "hearing" a truth quietly in your own heart. Share a sentence, or more with us!
