We need Easter Egg candy! We are stuffing eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt again this year and that means we need candy! Individually-wrapped candy can be dropped in the red bin at church. This fantastic family-friendly event is a great way for us to reach out to the community. We are also looking for people to help out at the Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20. Click here to check out areas where you can sign up to volunteer!

Are you registered for Life in the Valley? We want to let you know who we are and why we do what we do as a church. This class was designed for those who are new to HVCC as well as long-time attenders. If you would like to become an HVCC member, you will have that option at the end of the meeting. Join us on March 24 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Lunch will be served. To sign up to attend, please email Lori at by Friday, March 22 so we can plan accordingly with food and class materials.

Would you consider joining the Information Center team? We need a few more people who are willing to help out on Sunday mornings. All you need is a smiling face and a heart to help those who have questions. You don’t even need all the answers! Just take their name, and we’ll get back to them. If you could help us out by serving, please email

New life group! On Friday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., this men’s and women’s Life Group will be watching a video series on the Book of Judges starting Friday, March 29. The Book of Judges cracks a window into the depths of the human soul as it tells the story of a nation struggling with its identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arose who seemed ready to save Israel from its oppressors, but in the end each proved to be a flawed savior. Contact Lorie Rule at to sign up or for more information.

20's and 30's Women's Life Group: Before the world began, God knew His people would face hardship, so He gave us the Bible. Starting on Tuesday, March 26, Beck Bailey will be hosting a Life Group at HVCC for women in their 20's and 30's. They will be going through a nine-week video-based Bible study from RightNow Media on the book of Ephesians and will be encouraged to live well by living out the gospel. This group will gather in Club 45 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. If you are interested in digging into God's Word, please email

Hidden Valley is celebrating its 20-year anniversary this year! To mark this grand event we are putting together a video that will give a little history and also present what makes HVCC special to our attenders. We would like you to be a part of that video! Come in on Saturday, March 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and tell us why Hidden Valley is special to you. Come ready to share what you love most about our church. It only needs to be a few sentences. Please let Lorie Rule know you’ll be coming by emailing

World Vision Update! Between the two campuses, $886 was raised. We were able to purchase 4 goats ($350), 8 chickens ($100), $196 worth of medicine and $250 worth of water. Thank you for your generosity!

If you are a member of HVCC and would like to nominate someone for the Leadership Team, you have until April 1. Please send an email with the name of the person you would like to nominate to or write it on the tear-off section of your program on Sunday and put it in the offering box. Note: Nominations cannot be anonymous, so please make sure to fill out your contact information before submitting.

For those of you who watch our Sunday messages on the local cable channels, please be patient because the provider has hit a few snags with an update. We are told it may take a few weeks to fix. Videos of the messages can also be watched online at

Of course I’m mature, right??? Some of the synonyms for mature include words like old and ripened. It sounds a lot like brown-spotted bananas. Maybe that’s not really what God wants for us when He asks us to move towards maturity. We’ll see you Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. as we continue our series Trash to Treasure. Children’s programming is available during both services.
