Communications

ministries

Overview

The work of communication has actually been going on since the church began in 1898, but several years ago, the church decided that the conveyance of who we are and what we do in the name of Christ warranted more focused attention, and so, “Communications” became a formal ministry of the church. A logo and mission statement (displayed below) were created along with a more structured process for imparting information within the church family and to the larger community.

The work involves writing press releases to advertise coming events and getting those releases to the papers in a timely way. Often the ministry “reporters” will outline the details of a past event, perhaps including a photo, for publication in the local papers. Future events have also been publicized on the local cable information channel. HNCC’s regular worship and activity schedule is routinely aired, as well.

Communications also cares for creating and placing eye-catching signage at strategic locations around town to publicize events or provide direction to our location.

Publication of the monthly church newsletter and event flyers are also the role of Communications, as is archiving news stories and photographs of special activities. Over the last few years, Communications has been involved with development of the church’s website. The website is updated weekly, and generously managed, by a member of this ministry. The website is an exciting project that continues to evolve and become more user-friendly and valuable as more and more people become comfortable accessing the church’s news via the internet.

Mission Statement

To invite all people to the celebration of God’s grace and love, given freely to us in our Lord, Jesus Christ.

To be made alive by the presence of the Holy Spirit, who dwells in us and among us.

To be nourished and strengthened by the Word of God, revealed in the Old and New Testaments, given to us in the waters of Baptism and received in the celebration of the Bread and Cup.

To identify and celebrate the gifts that make us who we are and challenge each other to be who God has created us to be.

To be the living reminder of Christ, His real presence in the world in which we live and work.
