Youth Lake Day

skiing, and eating.

We will enjoy a wonderful cookout, welcome the new seventh graders, and say goodbye to our graduated seniors. If you are planning on attending, please call the church office or let Cass know by Sunday, August 9. Bring your bathing suits and be prepared for an awesome time in the water!

Praying in Color for Children

Praying in Color for Children

Praying in color has been described as “an active, meditative, and playful prayer practice.” It is the process of using paper and coloring tools to create a visual reminder of time spent in prayer.

During our Prayer Service time in August, our children will be given their own Praying in Color notebook. The children will have a table set up for them in the Great Room where they can work on their prayers during our Prayer Service time. This prayer discipline will encourage our children to listen to the prayers of our church family and to embody those prayers in art.

Join us on Wednesday nights, as we gather around the tables for food, fellowship, and prayer.

Taize Services Resume

Taize Services Resume

This summer our Taize worship services were suspended during the
months of June and July due to so many special summer activities
that have involved our church members. These worship services of
prayer, song, and reflection will resume on Tuesday, August 18 at
7:30 p.m. in the chapel.

If you have never experienced Taize, you are encouraged to give it a
try. What should you expect when you come? You will hear a guitar
guiding you through songs that will become prayers of the heart, you
will hear scriptures read and prayers offered, there will be soft
candlelight and a quiet place of rest and reflection. Nothing is
expected of you. It is simply an opportunity to be present with God,
and to enjoy a few moments of peace from the stresses of your busy
day.

HHBC to host CBF/GA Middle Georgia Neighborhood Picnic

HHBC to host CBF/GA Middle Georgia Neighborhood Picnic

Sunday, August 23, at 5:00 p.m.

CBF/GA has launched a new neighborhood concept by grouping
CBF churches together in regions, so that the churches can work
together to minister in their communities. In an effort to get to know
our neighbors in the CBF/GA Middle Neighborhood, we will gather
in a casual backyard picnic at HHBC on Sunday, August 23, from
5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. As we enjoy grilled burgers, activities, and
fellowship, we will meet new friends and learn more about the
churches in our area.

Following this initial event, our churches, together, will decide how
we want to impact our part of the state in missions, ministries,
worship and fellowship. We hope you will be a part of this
innovative approach, which resulted from the recent discernment
process conducted by the Coordinating Council of CBF/GA.
More details will follow, including opportunities for HHBC church
members to serve as hosts for this event as we welcome our CBF
neighbors to our church home.
