New Small Group

Single Adults

A new Small Group for single adults is meeting in Room E307 Sunday mornings at 11:00. This group is for those who are single again because their lives have been affected by death or divorce. Meet with others who have been through similar life experiences and be encouraged for ministry where you live, work, and play.

Will You Pray?

Moms in Prayer is a group of mothers and grandmothers who are serious about the discipline and power of prayer.

Women of all ages are invited to visit a Moms in Prayer group to experience the blessing of praying for your children and their schools. Two groups meet at Hunter Street.

Focus on Trace Crossings Elementary – Meets the third Wednesday of the month from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in Room E113.

Production Team Volunteers Needed

The Production Team at Hunter Street is a group of highly motivated, committed, and enthusiastic servants who value excellence and one another.

We strive to create a worship service environment that is comfortable and inviting and that points people to Jesus. Experience is not necessary. We will train you!

There are several new opportunities to serve including camera operator, lighting operator, lyrics/graphics operator and live stream producer. Contact Donny Young to inquire.

Trunk or Treat

October 29

Small Groups have a great opportunity to live out what it means to be real church at our Trunk or Treat event this year. Groups are encouraged to start planning for their “trunk” and to be ready to provide the “treats” for our many trunk or treaters. What a fun way to serve together! Trunk or Treat will be on Wednesday, October 29. Invite someone you have been building a relationship with where you live, work and play.

Kids from preschool to grade 6 are encouraged to wear their favorite non-scary costume and collect candy from decorated cars. Trunk or Treat is open from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in our church parking lot

Hot Dog! A free hot dog dinner will be served, starting at 4:30 p.m. by the Hunter Street Student Building.

Don’t Forget the Candy. We’re collecting bags of candy (no gum) to give out that night. Bring your donation to the Church Office or Small Group. In the event of rain, Trunk or Treat will not be held. There is no rain date. As a reminder, there will be no other activities that night and Trunk or Treat has a “no pets” policy.

New Life Men’s Bible Study

A group Bible study for men who are struggling with or in recovery from alcoholism or substance abuse meets on Wednesday evening.

The purpose of this group is to grow in Christ-likeness by studying God’s word, ministering to one another and sharing common experiences from our alcoholism or substance abuse.

For more information about time, location and materials, contact Kevin Pitts, 205.266.2731 or Brian Hinton, 205.985.7295. Your information is kept confidential.

Missions Sunday

November 2

On November 2, our church will celebrate what God has done this year through missions and will provide you opportunities to discover where God may be leading you to go in 2015. You’ll hear stories from our members, have a beignet in the gym and even see live goats and learn how they are connected to missions. Most importantly, you will learn how you can pray, give and go.

An important part of this day is helping to feed hungry people. You can participate in two ways. Cash and checks will go toward world hunger relief and will help feed hungry children with our International Mission Board missionary partners in Niger. Second, snack items (protein/meal bars, pop-top fruit cups or puddings, cans of Vienna sausages, small packs of cookies and peanut butter crackers) will be collected for the Baptist Friendship House in New Orleans. This is a Hunter Street ministry partner and a ministry of the North American Mission Board.

Did You Know?

Worldwide, 870 million people don’t have enough to eat – and the vast majority of them have no idea how much God loves them.

Global Hunger Relief is the new name for the World Hunger Fund which uses 100% of your gifts to feed hungry people. The goal of GHR hunger projects is to see communities and lives transformed … for today, tomorrow, and forever. GHR funds are used in gospel-centered hunger projects that share God’s love in both word and deed. GHR partners work to help people discover the new lives God offers them, learning how to provide for themselves and share new life with others.

Career Transition Mentors Needed

The Career Transition Ministry at Hunter Street is a resource for those looking for a job.

As this ministry expands to assist more people, additional volunteers are needed.  The CT Ministry is seeking mentors, especially females, to help job seekers.  

What does it take to be a mentor?  Consider this “job description” and seek the Lord’s wisdom to see if He is leading you to be a mentor. 

Duties.
  A CT mentor will work one-on-one with a job seeker to provide spiritual help and encouragement. Men will work with men, women will work with women.

Skills.  A desire to help others through a stressful life situation and the ability to meet periodically during the job search.

Qualifications.  A man or woman who is a well-grounded, mature Christ-follower.  A Human Relations background is not required.  All career types are needed.

For more information, contact Joan Landrum.
