second hour

Sunday worship at HMC is from 10 am to around 11 am. 

Shortly after we finish worship, we start "Second Hour", with choices for adults and children. We mark the beginning of Second Hour with the ringing of a bell.

For adults: Each Second Hour session goes for approximately one hour and facilitation is shared among different people depending on the topic or series.

current adult second hour topics:

 

#1: the fruit of the spirit

 

Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. All of us desire to exhibit these spiritual qualities in our lives. But what does it mean to “live by the Spirit”? How much is up to us, and how much depends on God? In this study, we’ll learn better how to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in our lives and grow in Christ-like character. 

Each session is stand-alone. Attend once, drop in and out week by week, or come to all - you don't need to have been part of the earlier sessions to attend the later ones. No registration required.

Meets in: Library

Facilitator: David Cooper
Start date: November 17
End date: January 19

 

 

#2: the two questions
 

Share a little about yourself – and get to know others in the Houston Mennonite faith family. This Second Hour session is casual and relaxed, and designed to help us grow in relationship with each other.

Each session, there are two questions – one a basic “get to know you” question, and the second a little deeper and maybe a little more serious, too.

You can answer each question in turn - or say “pass” any time you like and just listen to others.

Each session is stand-alone. Attend once, drop in and out week by week, or come to all - you don't need to have been part of the earlier sessions to attend the later ones. No registration required.

Meets in: Pastor's Office

Facilitator: Various (see schedule below)

Start date: November 17

End date: December 29
