Thanksgiving Supper and Service

Thanksgiving Supper and Service

Tuesday, November 25

All of our families have special Thanksgiving traditions that we like to share year after year. Our church family is no exception. One of our traditions takes place on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, when our church family—children, youth, and adults—gather in the Great Room for our midweek meal, which includes turkey, dressing, and all the fixings. This year’s Thanksgiving meal and communion will be on Tuesday evening, November 25, at 6:00 p.m.
 
Following the meal, we will share in a service of Thanksgiving and communion, thanking God for all of our blessings and for the ultimate gift Christ gave to us.
 
Join us for this special tradition as our church family celebrates Thanksgiving and shares in communion together.

Advent Devotional Guides Available

Advent Devotional Guides Available

For several years, our church has provided an Advent devotional booklet to be used during this season. This year’s booklet is titled “Wait for the Lord,” and contains the writings of Henri Nouwen, one of the most popular and beloved spiritual writers. Nouwen offers insights that will add meaning and reflection to our spiritual journey through Advent. The booklets are available for you to pick up from a basket in the Great Room or on the table near the Chapel.
 
We are also providing a resource for our children to use during Advent that will enhance their season of preparation and waiting. Their booklet is titled, “Guess Who’s Coming for Christmas,” and it comes with a sheet of Advent paper chain links to use with the children. These are available for pick up in the children’s area of our church.
 
It is our hope that this resource will become a part of your faith journey through this season of Advent. We hope that the words contained within it will find their way into your heart and will be a source that will nurture your spirit as you prepare to celebrate the coming of our Messiah – Jesus Christ.

Hanging of the Green

Hanging of the Green

Sunday, November 23

As we prepare our hearts and lives for the Advent season, we joyfully prepare our sanctuary for this special time of celebration. On Sunday evening, November 23, we will gather in the Great Room for fellowship and a breakfast supper at 6:00 p.m.
 
Following the meal, our church family will gather in the sanctuary for the Hanging of the Green service. The Youth Choir will lead us in song as our sanctuary is adorned with the beautiful wreaths, garland, and candles that set the scene each year and prepare us for the celebration of Advent. Join us for this service of preparation as we anticipate this season and the celebration of the birth of the Christ child.

This year, HHBC’s summer mission trip will take our team to the heart of Europe, to serve alongside Dianne and Shane McNary, CBF field personnel in Slovakia. The McNarys live in Kosice, Slovakia, and minister in several communities in both Slovakia and Czech Republic.

The Slovakia Mission Trip leadership team is hoping to gather a team of 10 – 12 adults, with a variety of skills and an eagerness to share God’s love in the Slovak communities.

The mission trip will take place from June 13 through June 22. Team members will minister to the Roma and Slovak communities by working through churches, schools, and other local partners. Projects may include landscaping public spaces, teaching English as a foreign language, promoting good nutrition and health, and caring for and showing love to marginalized children.

Two information sessions have been held to provide more details about the mission trip. Additional information sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, December 3, at 5:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m and Thursday, December 4, at 7:00 p.m. in the church parlor. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the trip should attend. Prayerfully consider if God is leading you to join the team and be the presence of Christ to people in need of God’s love and care.
