This is our 14th Annual Boil which we put on as a fundraiser for our high school summer mission trip to Weaverville, NC in July. We’re anticipating taking between 40 to 50 people this year, and on top of the per person cost of the trip, we are also using a charter bus which will cost $6,500 to rent for the week. Come on out and support a good cause while enjoying crawfish, shrimp and all the fixin’s, along with entertainment and a silent auction. Tickets are $25. If you are interested in sponsoring one of our students or would like to contribute toward the cost of the bus, please contact Daniel Robison (386-848-7101 / daniel@hclm.org).

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” (John 3:5-8)

Sermon Text: John 3:1-8

Kids Church: Week 5: Humility of Jesus (Philippians 2:3-8)

“Bottom Line: Put others first.”
