Missions Week 2013

  Designed by HMCC-AA Publications Team       This year’s theme for Missions Week is “Everyone. Everywhere.” Too often people see missions as something that only a select few get involved with or it has to be somewhere overseas, but this is a myth. All throughout the New Testament, we see that missions is something that every Christ-follower is called to do. Also, missions is supposed to happen wherever we are, no matter the...

Access Series: “Playlist”

  Designed by HMCC-AA Publications Team       Have you ever been asked, “What’s on your playlist?” In fact, you can find out a lot about a person by the type of music they listen to and what’s on their iPod. With every song, it shapes our mind and our worldview. There are lots of songs about love, relationships, success, identity and the list goes on and on. This Friday we are starting a...

The Cost of Following Jesus

  In our generation, we have domesticated the Gospel. When Jesus challenged people to follow Him, He demanded their lives. There was a cost involved in following Him; but we have drifted away from Jesus’ initial call. This is the reason why when we hear the Gospel message in a clear and unadulterated way, it cuts to our hearts. We must preach the Gospel and lay out the cost in following Jesus. Then, we must...

Spoken Word of Transformation

  It is hard to believe that we have started our 18th year of our church this September. This time of the year always brings excitement to my heart because we get to reach out to a new crop of students. The vision of transformation never stops. For the last 18 years, we have seen people come to the University of Michigan with different issues; but by the time they graduate, they experience God’s grace...

Handwriting Analysis

  Are you one of those people who always read the Chinese horoscopes on the place mats in Chinese restaurants? Why is it that we always read them again even though, we read it last time? I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s our desire to “know” and to be “known.” But for all of you, who have always wanted to “know” and dreamed about analyzing a person’s personality just from their handwriting, this...

Update on Team Hoyt

  It is hard to believe that Dick and Rick Hoyt ran their first marathon in Boston back in 1981. Since then, they have ran in more than 1,000 races. They were going to end their career with the 2013 Boston Marathon, but in light of the Boston tragedy, they decided to run one more race in dedication to the people who were affected by the Boston bombing. What a powerful story!

Reminders from Asia Trip 2013

  Photo by Duncan P. Walker       Whenever I spend time in Asia, God reminds me of things that He is doing around the world. This past summer God reaffirmed a lot of things we are doing as a church in trying to reach the nations with the Gospel. The reminders that God reiterated to me are: 1) ONENESS. There is power in unity. It was huge blessing to see all our HMCC...

7: Churches of Revelation

  Photo by HMCC-AA Publications Team       We are finishing off the summer months with our new sermon series called, “7: Churches of Revelation.” It is a good continuation from our “Bold” series on the minor prophets. The beautiful thing about the Bible is that it is “living;” therefore God’s Word is able to speak to us today. Even though, the seven letters in the Book of Revelation were written many years ago...

2013 4th of July

  I’m so thankful for all the military men and women, who serve and continue to make sacrifices for their country so that ordinary people like us can enjoy our freedom on this 4th of July. I have watched this video at least 5 times and every time it has messed me up. There is something about being reunited with your loved ones that melts my heart. One day, our Heavenly Father will welcome us...
