Through the season of Lent, we journeyed through times in Scripture when God said “no.” And though in our lives, we wrestle with many “no’s,” we are also presented with many “yes’s” too! Throughout this season of Easter, we will be rejoicing in the “yes’s of God! Yes to new life, yes to redemption, yes to forgiveness, yes to life everlasting! Join us for the next few weeks as we study times in Scripture that God said yes, and also as we look at our own lives and examine our response to God’s goodness.

Christmas In July

Operation Christmas Child

As you may already know, HNAZ has partnered with the Operation Christmas Child organization to help bring joy and spread the word of Jesus to children all around the world for many years.  Last year was the first year for HNAZ to serve as a collection site, and we were blown away by the generosity of our own church congregation, and other churches around our community.  This year, we’ve set our goals even higher.  We want to go above and beyond, but we need your help!  
We will be collecting items to include in Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for a packing party in July.  Items that can be donated are plastic cups or water bottles, flashlight with batteries, pencil case, solar calculators, fidget spinners, matchbox cars, marbles, monetary donations for soccer ball/pumps and to cover shipping costs.  Donations can be made the same way as your regular tithe, but be sure to designate as “OCC.”
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Laura Zahm, Brittney Brumbaugh, or the HNAZ Office.

Red Cross Blood Drive

The Red Cross will be hosting a blood drive at HNaz on Friday, June 10th from 1:30 - 7:30 PM.  Register today and receive a free ticket to Cedar Point upon donation!

Sunday Morning Electives

John Trout will continue leading a study through the book, "The Softer Side of Leadership." This study makes a case for leadership skills and provides practical ways to develop them and put them into action. The author, Dr. Habecker, draws from his own experience, other leadership experts, and from the Bible.

Being chosen by Jesus has beautiful and far-reaching implications. We are loved because He is love. We are saved because He is merciful. We belong to the family of God because Jesus invites us, making the Bible and all its promises as true for us today as it was for God’s chosen people. Join us for the next 6 weeks as we utilize the new series “The Chosen” to guide us through Jesus’ life and early ministry. We will use this TV series to help facilitate conversation and more closely examine Scripture. We will meet Sunday mornings in the Refinery, at 9:30am starting Sunday, May 22nd!

Graduation Sunday

If you, or your child, is graduating this spring - let us know!  We would love to celebrate them on Sunday, May 29th during worship service.

Dinner Groups - Summer 2022

Dinner Groups are designed to be an environment where you can casually sit around a table with others that you worship with, but might not know that well yet. It is a chance for you to hear and share your story with others.
