Concerns & Opportunities
Fellowship Dinner
Hibben's Youth would love to lend a helping
hand to our church family during our annual
Spring Serve event. Do you need (free!) help
with yard work, light house work, or other
small projects? We are taking requests to
provide assistance on Friday, April 3. If you
would like to be included, please contact
Elizabeth Connell at 843-813-8700.
NEXT Sunday, March 29
The Hibben Worship and Nurture Committees will
co-host our annual Palm Sunday Fellowship Dinner.
This year’s dinner will also recognize new members
joining over the past year. All members, along with
their families, are invited to gather in the CLLC
immediately following the one combined 10:30
worship service. Because all new members will
be our honored guests, each family is asked to bring their favorite dish
(enough for your family and a few extra, please). Fried chicken, red
rice, green beans and beverages will be provided.
Sympathy
The congregation lifts John Elliott and his family in prayer following the
death of his wife, Barbara, on March 12th. Funeral services were held in
Walterboro at the Parker-Rhoden Funeral Chapel, followed by interment
at Black Creek Baptist Church Cemetery in Hendersonville, SC. We
entrust this family to God’s comforting care during their time of grief.
Know Your Ministry:
Spiritual Gifts for Every Believer
The Galileans Life Group invites you to join us for a study of our spiritual
gifts as outlined in Romans 12:4-8. As Christians, we have each been
given spiritual gifts that we are called to use to reach out to others in
service and love. In the book "Know Your Ministry: Spiritual Gifts for
Every Believer,” we will take a look at what each of our specific gifts are,
and how we might use them every day as we share the love of Christ with
others. The class begins Sunday, March 29th. Study books are available
in the church office for $10.00.
GROUP YARD SALE
Do you need to simplify your life and get rid of stuff?
Would you like to support Hibben and its ministries?
Here is a great opportunity! On April 11th Hibben
will host a multiple family yard sale in our CLLC.
Each seller will be responsible for their own space
setup, pricing, selling, and clean-up. All we ask is
that you donate 10% of your proceeds to any Hibben
ministry. For more information, or to sign-up as a
participant, contact Jennifer at [email protected]
After March 28th we will open space to friends of
Hibben, if any remain. So, register soon!
The Table
Hibben continues our ministry of acceptance and assistance to our
neighbors, The Table. We gather the third Saturday of each month from
11:00am-1:00pm and offer a free meal. We also provide a grocery bag
full of food for each family who attends and we offer activities and games
for children, blood pressure checks, and haircuts. The Table needs your
financial donations to help cover the cost of food which we purchase
through the Lowcountry Food Bank and we need volunteers/servants
willing to cook, serve, and fellowship with our neighbors. If you are not
presently involved in an outreach ministry at Hibben, this is a great one!
The Trustees are looking for volunteers to help
spruce-up the church grounds.
If you’re
interested in volunteering, Mike Simms, Joye
Wells, or Harry Bregel can give you more
information. Show your pride in Hibben and
help make it look its best!
