Sunday worship guide
We belong in community, so let’s connect!
Let us know you were here, any prayer support you could use, or what you would like to know more about as you consider exploring the gospel and connecting with our faith community.
Welcome to today’s worship gathering
Whether you’re just beginning to explore the claims of Jesus or are seasoned in your faith, we are glad you are here! We believe that Jesus makes a difference in all of life and that we are able to best experience that in community. As you’ll see today, we worship God through a variety of ways including studying the Bible, praying, singing, & more. We like to weave in and out of traditions like liturgical reading as well as contemporary and dynamic expressions of worship–all of which are meant to help us recall, reflect upon and respond to the good news of Jesus found throughout the story of redemption in Scripture.

Combined all-church gathering next sunday and no sunday morning worship gathering aug 28
Note that our next all-church worship gathering will be held on August 21 at our Wallingford Expression at 10:30 a.m. and the following week, August 28, we will not be meeting for Sunday morning worship but rather will be encouraging everyone to participate in our All-Hallows Camping Trip at Taidnapam Park (see below for details).
Imagine! Kid’s Camp
It was a hit this past week with 70 students participating and volunteers representing from every Hallows Expression and even seven from a partner church in Dallas, TX (121 Community Church)! Thank you for praying and participating! Please keep praying for the children who heard the gospel and even responded to it this week–some for the first time!
All Hallows Camping Trip
August 26-28, Taidnapam Park | Many of us have experienced summers in the past growing our friendships with one another through our All-Church Retreat or even informal camping trips together. Well, this summer, in lieu of a 2022 All-Church Retreat, we will be offering an all-church camping trip Friday-Sunday, August 26-28th to close out the summer and re-connect going into the Fall. We have reserved the group camp that includes a large kitchen shelter, RV sites and tent sites. It’s $75/site, not including food. If you’d like to offer group meals or help organize the trip, please contact Kim asap. If you are new to the Hallows community or new to camping in general, don’t worry! We can help you borrow/acquire the gear needed, plan meals and basically make sure you have a great time enjoying nature with new and old Hallows friends. Reserve your spot today!

Worship through Giving
Thank you for giving of your time, talents and treasures to support the ministry efforts of and through your Hallows community. If you would like to give financially, you can go to our Giving page.
More about Communion
Today you’ll have the opportunity to take communion during the gathering.
Communion is also known as the Lord’s Supper and is a symbolic act of worshipful obedience whereby followers of Christ eat bread and drink juice in rememberance of what Jesus did for us, how He did it and why it was necessary (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
If you have yet to put your trust in Jesus, you are encouraged to refrain from eating the bread and drinking the juice. You are encouraged, however, to use this time to pray or meditate upon what you have heard and seen today. May you earnestly approach God with your questions, struggles, doubt, sin and even consider asking Him to teach you who He is.
If you are beginning to believe in your need for salvation and want to put your trust in Jesus for your rescue and reconcilation with God, tell Him! Acknowledge that you are more weak and sinful than you previously believed but through Jesus you believe you are loved and accepted because He pays the debt, bears the punishment and offers forgiveness and new life to any who would repent and believe in Him–including you!
If this is a prayer you are earnestly praying today, share it with someone (like a Christian friend or a Hallows pastor) so that you can grow in your faith in community!
