Praise & Prayer Worship Night (Thu 11/7)
You are invited to the fourth Worship Night that will be taking place this Thursday, November 7th, 7:00pm-8:00pm. The time will be led by Ron Taylor and Dave Lippman. Come join them for a restful night of worship, reflection, fellowship and refreshment as we spend some intentional time in God’s presence at the Mount Hermon Prayer Chapel. The theme for this Worship Night is The God who Sees me. There will be coffee, tea, and cookies available outside afterward. Everyone on the mountain is invited! This is open to anyone on the MHA staff or in the Mount Hermon community or who you think would enjoy attending. For more information, contact Keri Lippman, Reservations and Events Services Registrar at 831-430-1212.

Operation Christmas Child (Mon 11/18)Mount Hermon’s Operation Christmas Child packing party has previously and graciously been led by Lisa Galleguillos.  This year, Lisa is transitioning the leadership over to Ramohna Jones. We will be having our packing party on November 18th at 6:30 pm.  It will be in the Newton Building/children’s day camp building, across the street from the field. We will be folding and filling  shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, clothing and school supplies.  Those shoeboxes, along with an introduction to the Gospel, will be delivered to under privileged children, around the world, as part of Samaritan’s Purse, headed by Franklin Graham. All Mount Hermon staff, residents, volunteers and their families are encouraged and more than welcome to attend. Children may participate, providing they are supervised by an adult. We ask participants to please bring items to pack and/or a minimum of $9 to go towards shipping the boxes.  Items most needed are crayons, combs, boy’s t-shirts in all sizes, hairbrushes and bathsoap.   Checks may be made out to Samaritan’s Purse or Operation Christmas Child. Refreshments will be provided. Any questions may be sent to [email protected] or her cell # 810-623-2949. If anyone wants to donate, but cannot attend, their donations may be dropped off at 80 Forest Rd.
