Hereford News


For the special this week at the Hereford Community Church Pastor Opdycke read a quote from the poet Longfellow. Then she told a little about two books she recommended that everyone read. The first book is called “The Preachers Wife” and the second book is called “The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent.”

The sermon title was “Living Compassionately.” The scripture in 1John 4:19-21 tells us to love God and to love each other. Pastor Opdycke told two stories to illustrate. The first story was about a young boy in Israel who was terrorized, but he felt no hate for those people. The second story was about a young girl that hit and killed a woman on a bicycle while driving her car. The husband of the woman killed not only forgave the girl, but led her to Christ and helped her get on the right track in life. When people mistreat us, we are to live compassionately and love them — not hate them. 

Next week the sermon title will be “Living Consistently.” 

The Church held their quarterly business meeting before the service on Sunday. They discussed routine business matters and reports were given. Some upcoming dates to put on your calendar are Aug. 18 will be Hereford Day. There will be a potluck dinner at the church and entertainment. Oct. 6 will be the day to stuff Christmas stockings. There will be a potluck dinner that day. The congregation plans to attend a Rockies game. More information will be coming soon. Also the church will be celebrating their 75th anniversary soon. A committee will be forming to make arrangements.
