MESSAGE FROM LEAD PASTOR GREG NICHOLSON
In 1981, the fifteen founding members of HCC dreamed of having a vibrant, growing church. That didn’t happen right away.
When I came here in 1988 we prayed and worked hard to become self-supporting by 1991 but, like most new churches, we hit a growth plateau in the 18-25-year range. The church then either declines or some type of catalyst stimulates growth.
God blessed us with that catalyst in 2007 and by 2010 we were experiencing crowding issues so we began holding dual worship services. That bought us one year and in 2011 we entered into a complete renovation of our building. The vision was that this would accommodate our needs until we were close to 400 in attendance in the two services. We had almost reached that goal in early 2020 but then the world was shuttered by COVID-19.
God has been blessing us during the COVID years and we have discovered that we are one of 1% of North American Churches that have experienced financial and numerical growth from year-to-year since 2019. We are almost at that target of 400 again. The time for us to act is NOW! “We Need to Make Room for More”!
God has blessed us with a vibrant, growing, multi-cultural, disciple-making church that strives to make Jesus known. In order to create more disciples, our leadership feels that we must increase the size of our building. Leaving out anyone who needs to connect with Jesus isn’t an option for us.
I am asking you to prayerfully consider making the most generous contribution that you have ever made to “Making Room for More”. We firmly believe that God will provide the resources.
