150th Church Anniversary
January 17, 2019
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.  Philippians 1-6
 
Calling all cooks and all who love to eat!  As part of our special 150th year celebration we are compiling a cookbook.  It will include pictures of past members who were amazing cooks and their recipes from our last church cookbook.  Please write down your recipes on an index card and make sure to include your name.  There will be a basket in the foyer for you to drop off your recipes.  Also recipes can be emailed to Jeannie Petit at theglengang@gmail.com.
 
Do you have photos and other documents about HBC’s last 150 years or perhaps memories of our beloved church?  There is a basket in the church parlor and outside the church library to drop off items.  Make sure to include your name and contact info so we can return the items. We plan to use for slide shows on Sunday mornings, memory book and updating our digital archives.
 
Make plans to join us on Easter Sunday, April 21 as our former senior pastor, Dr. Tom Reynolds, will bring the morning worship message and special music presented by our adult choir.
 
For the fall we will have a “Homecoming Service” on Sunday, September 29.  Our guest speaker will be Fred Anderson as he portrays 19th century Baptist leader Dr. William Hatcher.  After the service there will be a dinner on the church grounds and old-fashioned time entertainment and games.  A special cookbook with classic HBC recipes will be available for purchase.  Proceeds will benefit HBC mission projects.
 
The final event of our yearlong celebration will be a “Service of New Beginnings” in January 2020.
