Latest News & Announcements:

Updated September 22: 

  • Join Us for Brunch and Give to the Capital Campaign.  We’ve revised our goal to $20,000 and replacement of 2 units. 

    • We have currently raised $10,992 toward the campaign.  This means we have a ways still to go!  Please consider making an additional gift (or your first dedicated gift) to the campaign this Sunday to help us reach our goal and bring the campaign to an end.  Gifts can be made online, mailed to the office, or placed in the offering plate. 

    • There are two more silent auction items available to bid on: a beautiful gift basket from Four Horses and a Dog Winery and tickets to Jaeger’s Paintball and Laser Tag.  The auctions will end shortly after worship Sept. 25. 

    • Anyone who gives a gift in September or early October will receive a decorative sign with the children’s blessing, handmade by Pastor Mike. 

    • As a thank you, join us for another brunch after worship Sept. 25.  
    • Thank you so much to everyone who has already contributed funds and time to this project.

  • Help Stock our Local Food Pantry.  For our faith formation service project this Sunday, September 25, we are collecting food donations (we’re doing service projects the 4th week of each month).  These items will go to In As Much Ministry, the food pantry that serves our community. 

    • Food pantries are seeing many more people seeking food right now as grocery prices have grown and pandemic stimulus programs expire.  These are the most needed items in our community right now:  mixed fruit, mandarin oranges, tomato sauce, pancake mix, rice sides, pasta sides, powdered sugar, pudding, jello, mouth wash, Q-tips, and liquid hand soap. 

    • If you can't join us on Sunday, bring your items any time, and download this guide to talking about food insecurity as a family.  

  • Like beer and love God?  It’s time for another God on Tap!  Join Pastor Mike at Conrads in Liberty for conversation Tuesday, September 27 at 7:00pm.  We’ll talk about God, faith, and what’s happening in our lives, letting the conversation go where life and the Holy Spirit take us.  We’ll order individually, so if adult beverages consumed in moderation isn’t your thing or you don’t have time for supper separately, you’re welcome to order food and other beverages.  No need to RSVP. 

Past Announcements: 

  • Help Us Stay Connected. We’ve upgraded our church database and plan to produce a new picture directory later this fall.  Whether you’re a member or a frequently attending non-member, please spend a few minutes to verify that the information we have for you is correct and take a new picture.  If you can’t attend worship in September, we invite you to call the church office to make other arrangements.  If you’d prefer to use your own photo for the directory, you can submit them to cathy@hosannalutheranchurch.org

    • You have the option to create a Breeze account to access the church directory digitally (others’ contact information won’t be viewable until later this fall), view your own giving history, manage your electronic giving, and manage volunteering.  Everyone will still receive a printed directory and quarterly giving statements, so if you aren’t tech savvy or have no interest in an account, you won’t be left out.   

    • None of your information will be shared publicly on the internet.  Only verified members will be able to see directory information you allow us to share.  When you update your profile, you may elect to have some or all of your contact information kept private.  Our Breeze database is cloud-based, but it uses an HTTPS SSL encrypted connection in a PCI compliant datacenter, which is the same standard used for transferring credit card data. 

  • We’re Transitioning to a New E-Giving Platform.  Electronic giving is baked into our new database, and it offers simpler management for you and easier bookkeeping for us.  If you are currently giving electronically, we invite you to cease recurring gifts through Vanco Payment Services (our previous provider) and restart them with Breeze (our new provider, who processes payments securely through Stripe). 

    • If you initiated your previous recurring gift through the church office using a printed form, please call our administrative assistant Cathy in the office at 816-781-7991 to help you with the transition. 

  • Support Us when You Shop.  There are several ways you can support Hosanna! while you shop, at no extra cost to you!  Learn more online or visit the IT booth in the worship entry hall after worship.    

  • Join Hosanna’s Team as We Walk to End Alzheimer’s.  Hosanna! is sponsoring a team in the upcoming Liberty Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.  The event is scheduled for a Sunday morning, so we will gather ourselves to walk as a team on Saturday, October 8 at 9:00am at the church building.  You are welcome to join the team and/or donate today.
