Giving Christmas for Families

Giving Christmas is an opportunity for your family to bless someone this Christmas season.

Giving opportunities are listed in the Giving Christmas catalog. Take some time with your family to decide together what is right for your family in terms of time, energy and resources, and experience the joy of serving together this holiday season.

Poinsettias for Christmas

Order a red poinsettia in honor or in memory of someone special this Christmas.

The flowers cost $15 each and will be displayed during Christmas. On December 21 a recognition program will be included in the bulletin and flowers may be picked up after the third worship service that day. To order your poinsettia, visit the BookStore or the Church Office. Please order by December 7.

Why Give?

The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 16:17, “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God that he has given you.” As followers of Christ, we are called to give of the blessings we have received to bless others.

When we give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions, we are helping send and support our missionaries who share Christ’s love with the lost and hurting. One hundred percent of the offering is used in this one sacred effort.

Help For Job Seekers

Have you been out-sourced or down-sized and feel stressed or discouraged?

The Career Transition Ministry is not a job-placement service, but rather a helping ministry for those seeking a job. Specialists and mentors can assist you in refining interviewing skills and provide spiritual help and encouragement along the job-seeking process. To learn more about this ministry, contact Jim Burks.

Marriage Prep Class

For those engaged or considering marriage, Marriage Prep is a ten-week class to help you prepare for a God-honoring marriage.

Topics include God’s design for marriage, conflict resolution, managing finances God’s way, biblical roles of husbands and wives and more.

There is a $35 charge per couple to help offset the cost of materials. Some preparatory work is required, so please contact KC Armstrong to register and receive further instructions, or to inquire about more information. The Marriage Prep class is a requirement to be married at Hunter Street or by a Hunter Street minister.

Singles Winter Retreat

February 6-8, 2015

The Single Adult Winter Retreat is just around the corner and registration is now open! February 6-8 we will enjoy the beautiful scenery atop Taylor Mountain at Lake Guntersville State Park as well as four sessions of teaching and corporate worship. Cabins will sleep four people and are equipped with a full kitchen and family room area. The retreat includes plenty of free time to explore the state park on Saturday, such as hiking 36 miles of trails, fishing for large-mouthed bass, spotting the many bald eagles that call this area home, or enjoying a round of golf. The cost is $149 and covers lodging, four meals, drinks and snacks for the weekend. To register or for more information, visit HunterStreetSingles.org.

How Does Our Giving Make an Impact?

What happens when our church partners with IMB and gives to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions?

Missionaries are able to share the gospel with unreached people groups, train believers to start new churches, assist in the planting of new churches, show Christ’s love to those in distress, and, most importantly, work to spread the kingdom of God. According to IMB’s 2013 Annual Statistical Report, our missionaries shared the gospel with 1.7 million people, trained 23,000 nationals to start new churches and helped plant 6,200 churches. While those statistics are exciting, there are still over 4 billion people who remain lost. More giving will allow IMB to send more missionaries so that more people are reached for Christ.

Mission Opportunity in London

Mid-February

Hunter Street will send a missions team to London in mid-February to work alongside Highgate Road Chapel as they offer Vacation Bible School to children in their neighborhood. Team members are needed for this trip. For more information, contact Spencer Knight.
