The fortieth day of Easter is known as Ascension Day. On this Sunday, we remember Christ’s ascension into heaven. The ascension affirms to us that what God begins, God completes. Our God is a dependable God. If Christ ascended, that means he first descended. Because of the Fall, humanity was separated from God, but Christ came came down to us, paving a way so that like him, we can be reunited with God. Join us as we celebrate Christ not only ascending from death to life, but also ascending from life to life everlasting.

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. Dinner Groups are a great way to live IN relationship with one another and help you establish new relationships that could lead to great friendships.
If you are interested in joining or hosting a dinner group,  please sign up today!

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.

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!
