We need one more Drama King! Are you able to do a 3-5 minute reading with a bit of feeling behind it? We could use your help for our Easter Series. You will be given a script and it does not need to be completely memorized. If interested, please contact Scott Craddock: scott@hiddenv.com.

KidZone is wrapping up their study on Kindness this Sunday! We’ll be discussing this big question: How can I be kind to people I don’t get along with? We’re going to finish off the month in Matthew 5:43-48. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us who deserves kindness and that is EVERYONE. Come learn how to be kind to people who aren’t kind to you this Sunday.

We welcome Gary Halverson to our Leadership Team. Would you commit to praying for him as he helps HVCC fulfill our mission?

Renata Feiner has joined HVCC as our Communications Coordinator. She will be assisting the staff with our communications and social media strategies.

Blended families are wonderful yet they do come with some unique challenges. We have a blended family life group that will be starting on Monday, April 2 and last six weeks. The time is 6pm - 8pm. For more information, contact Debbie James-Rideout: debjames04@gmail.com.

We are quickly approaching Easter! Easter is a great time to invite family and friends to join you as many are open and wanting to attend a service to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. Please be in prayer about who you can bring with you!

  • Good Friday Service will be March 30 at 6pm. We will be doing baptisms at this service. If you are interested in being baptized, please email Scott at scott@hiddenv.com.
  • Easter Sunday Services will be at 9am and 10:30am.
  • Breakfast with the Easter bunny! We will again be hosting a free pancake and sausage breakfast with the Easter bunny on Saturday, March 31 from 8am - 10:30am. This is a great opportunity for HVCC to serve our community and invite others to church on Easter. We will be giving each child up to 5th grade who attends the Easter Bunny Breakfast some Easter candy. If you are able to donate individually wrapped Easter candy, please leave it in the red container in the entryway at HVCC.
  • We are looking for volunteers to help us set up, greet, assist in applying temporary tattoos, serve and clear tables, serve in the kitchen and to help clean up. If you are interested in helping, please send an email to admin@hiddenv.com.

HVCC will be hosting the Global Leadership Summit again this year. We want you to join us for this amazing conference that is filled with vision, inspiration and practical skills you can apply. Start planning ahead to join us Thursday, August 9 and Friday, August 10. Watch for more information coming soon, including registration and cost.

We want your gallon-sized ice cream buckets! We’ll be needing buckets (no lids) for the upcoming Feed My Starving Children packing event and for our Easter Breakfast. Please drop them off in our kitchen labeled “events” prior to Sunday, March 4.

Fakebook.  Can we be perfectly honest? We all like gossip. The Bible compares gossip to your favorite food -- a hot fudge sundae. (Proverbs 18:8) The Bible also says that gossip is wrong. So how do we get rid of something that we like so much? Join us on Sunday at 9:00am or 10:30am to find out what to do with gossip.
