Wednesday Ministries

Our Youth (Wednesday and Sunday) and Awana (Wednesday) ministries are canceled until further notice. We will re-evaluate conditions each week. In the meantime, the Associate Pastor of Youth and Young Adults and the Children's Ministry Director will be providing alternative options to help children, youth and young adults stay connected.

Sunday Services

In accordance with the Federal, State, local and Evangelical Friends guidelines we have recently received, it is recommended that we do not have more than 10 people in any meeting. Therefore, HEFC will not be holding Sunday Services or other activities (except for Food Ministry) for at least through the end of March. However, it is imperative that the congregation support the work of our church and all it's ministries by continued giving through our tithes and offerings. Some suggestions for submitting your tithes and offerings are:

  • Deliver your contribution to the church office during church business hours
  • Mail your check to the church at 6420 Mechanicsville Turnpike, Mechanicsville, VA 23111
  • Many banks offer online services where you can have them mail a check to the church
Together with the Lord’s help we will overcome! We need to continue to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, each other and our neighbors.

Food Ministry

Shoppers and guests arrive at 6:30pm and stay in your vehicle. We will bring food to you. There won't be any numbers.

Upcoming Sermons

April 5th, 2020 – The Miracles of Palm Sunday

I want to highlight 4 “coincidences” about this day in Jesus’ life called the Triumphal Entry. The colt that was right where Jesus said it would be. How He fulfilled scripture by riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. The people’s reception of Him as Messiah was unprecedented. And finally, the Passover Lambs.

April 12th, 2020 – Resurrection Sunday

Lots of people are living broken worlds, their lives shattered. Peter was such a person after denying he even knew the Lord. But Jesus reached out to him and restored him to usefulness again. Jesus, because He’s alive, is still resurrecting & restoring broken lives.

April 19th, 2020 – Fruit of the Spirit

I will be preaching on the “Fruit of the Spirit” in a 9-week series beginning April 19th. This sermon series will pair with RightNow Media teaching series called “Tasty” by James Merritt. Do the RNM lesson the week of the sermon on the same topic.

The first sermon in the Fruit of the Spirit Sermon Series is on love, Keeping Love Alive. We will learn what love is and how it acts, for love is a verb & verbs are action words.
