Welcome to the Hayward church of Christ website. Please take a few minutes to browse around and look us over. It is our aim to encourage, strengthen, and offer the way of salvation that God has revealed in His word--the Bible. We also want to provide resources and Biblically sound material for you to use in personal study. Feel free to contact us and let us know what you think. Or, better yet, come worship with us when you have the opportunity.
Thomas R. West
Memory Verse for May
(2 Corinthians 5:9) "Wherefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well pleasing unto Him."
ATTENTION: ( This weeks bulletin is pending)
Personal note: (From David Miller) Many of you ask about how my mother is. I know you have been praying for her, and I deeply appreciate this. She went home to the Lord at 11:20 New Mexico time on Tuesday. She was 85. Demetia and congestive heart failure had been affecting her for several years now.
My sister and I request that instead of flowers, that a donation to Manuelito Childrens' Home in her memory would be nice.
Thanks again for all your prayers and concern.
Due to the changes in the virus climate, we plan to start meeting at the building on June 7th. for worship. We will meet for morning and evening worship at the scheduled times, but not morning Bible class just yet.
This is if no new outbreak in the virus happens before then.
We still need to be vigilant to protect each other.
This is for those who feel comfortable in public, and are not ill.
What to expect when returning to Worship:
Looking forward to serving you all online this Sunday at 10:45.
Note that the bulletin is not being printed on paper at this time. It will be online Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Below these announcements is a link. Just below "Current Bulletin" Or you can just click HERE.
Ongoing message until the status is changed:
Regarding the offering. (members only)
It is suggested that you set aside your offering and have it ready for when we can meet again. Or you can mail a check to the building if you prefer, drop it by the building if you happen to be by here (mailbox is on the East side by the door) when going to the store, etc.
Call Tim Brown if you wish to electronically contribute directly. He can give you the information.
We will be streaming Wednesday Evening but have no assembly at the building. (unless this is updated.)
Please continue to be in touch with each other and certainly pray for a swift end to this.
What good can come out of this?
We know that The Lord works in mysterious ways. We can't often see what He intends accomplish by events.
Shouldn't the keepers of true peace, love, and joy, be ready and anxious to take advantage of the situation and show them what we have? (That's us)
Door handles are a prime place for cross contamination and for bacteria and virus' to spread. The most used door handle is in a public restroom.
After washing your hands, use a towell to turn off the faucet, then the same towell to open the door. There is a garbage can by the door to dispose of the towell.
This is a good practice all the time, not just in an situation as we are in.
Outside door handles can be worked with a sleeve, or a pencil, umbrella handle, etc. We will attempt to keep doors open, or attended to avoid contact.
Push the exit bar with your arm.
If you go to the market, etc. keep two clean sets of nitril or latex gloves on hand. Cash is dirty..... always..... The pin pads, and gas pump handles are also filthy. A glove is a good investment.
