Adopted in 2007, our Vision Statement helps to define who our church is and where we are going:
“From generation to generation, we will seek to proclaim the good news of God’s grace by following the example of Jesus Christ who ministered to
the needs of others through teaching, serving, and loving God and neighbors.”

A Love Letter... to the
Army of Angels from HBC:
Last week, and particularly on
Saturday, an "Army of Angels"
descended on our house and
packed, boxed up, and trans-
ported books, linens, CD's, cut
glass, china and other kitchen
equipment to the new house,
and even brought food to sus-
tain the other angels.
Said Angels included Beth and
Doug Heard, Jim and Judy
North, Bonnie Madre, Susan
McCauley, Alystra Barefoot,
Susanna McKendree, Jane and
Roy Austin, Frank and Mary
Jane Ransom, and Jane and
Pat Garvey. We actually
looked up the hierarchy of an-
gels, but it got too complicat-
ed, so we have to assume each
category was properly repre-
sented! We are grateful be-
yond words, and are touched
by your thoughtfulness and

The Month of April
"The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day,
When the sun is out and the wind is still.
You're one month on in the middle of May,
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch.
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back
In the middle of March."
