Ministers On Call
Our ministers will be on-call during the weekend should a ministry need or emergency arise. To reach the minister on call, call the church office (919-833-4617) after 5 p.m. on Friday and press number 8. That will connect you to the minister on call for that weekend.
Special Christmas Sunday School Program
All adults are invited to meet in the Fellowship Hall on December 15 for the Special Christmas morning program. Coffee, juice, and doughnuts will be served beginning at 9:15 a.m. and the program will begin at 9:45 a.m. The story of the birth of the Christ Child taken from Luke 2, special music, and Christmas memories are a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season at Hayes Barton.
Hanging of the Greens, December 8, 5 p.m.
This year we will have the beautiful Traditional service. All our choirs will sing and we will experience the beauty and meaning of how we decorate our Sanctuary for Advent and the worship of Jesus.If you are able to park off-site (Underwood Elementary, First Citizen Bank, etc.), this will help open up spaces for our visitors and seniors. Parking attendants will be around to help as well.
Christmas Mission Offering
Our goal for this year is $18,000. Be on the lookout for an offering envelope either by mail or around the church. There are four options to choose from and your offering will be divided equally among the options you have chosen (choose as many as you desire). Our special missions projects include Global Missions Offering, Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, HBBC Missions, and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines Disaster Relief. We want to encourage all of us to give boldly and generously.
