Audio recordings of sermons now available:
Did you miss a sermon? Oh no! But fret not, all is not lost; audio recordings of Lant’s and Scott’s sermons are now available on the church website, www.thcpc.org. All of the August sermons have been successfully added. There are also some (but not all) of the sermons from earlier in 2014 and 2015. To find them, either go to this link: https://www.thcpc.org/sermons/ or, from the church homepage, select “About Us” and then “Sermons” to see the list. (Sometimes you may need to click on “Browse Series” once you are on the “Sermons” page to see the most recent addition.) Sermon recordings should normally appear on the website the same afternoon they have been delivered.
