We, of course, need your help to make this a success!  Beginning in January tickets will go on sale.  Tickets will be $20.  You are encouraged to come ready to make bids on some exciting items that will be available!  Let’s work together to reach out to our community and share what we’re able to with them. 

 
OPERATION INASMUCH
Saturday, April 14, 2018
 
“Truly I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of these my brethren, you did it to me.
 (Matthew 25:40)
 
Operation Inasmuch (OIAM) is our one-day mission blitz within our community.  Projects are chosen through various local organizations with whom we work.  Projects can range from construction projects … building a deck, repairing a roof, installing siding, upgrading bathrooms, etc. … to painting to yard work, landscaping and cleanup to baking and delivering goodies to local fire departments and rescue squads.  So don’t think you can’t participate if you don’t know what to do with a tool belt or power tools.  There are projects for every age and every skill level.

OTHER MISSION PROJECTS
 
MENTORING AT SPOTSWOOD ELEMENTARY –  Do you have any spare time between 4-6 pm on a week day?  Would you like to make a difference in the life of a child?  We can reach out into our community by building relationships and sharing the love of Christ with children at Spotswood beginning in January with our new mentoring program.  No experience is necessary … just a willingness to play board games, read books, help with  homework, share some smiles, and make some lasting memories.
 
MISSION TRIP – Each summer we have a group of volunteers go on a mission trip.
 
DRESS A GIRL AROUND THE WORLD – Dress a Girl Around the World is an organization that clothes children in various parts of the world with at least one high quality dress.  These dresses are hand delivered with smiles, prayers and often a Bible or a cloth doll that matches the dress.  Sadly, for most of these precious girls, the handmade dress they are given will be the only dress they ever own.  Each year we hold Sewing Circles as we come together and sew these dresses.  We also have individuals, groups and other churches who sew and donate dresses.  In 2015, we had over 190 dresses made!!  If you, your group or church would like to get involved, please contact the church at 540.433.2456.
 
SATURDAY COMMUNITY BAG LUNCH – HBC has served our neighbors lunch each Saturday morning for over 20 years.  We have 10 teams who rotate on a weekly basis.  Each Saturday morning between 11 am and 12 noon, they prepare a hot lunch for those in need within our community and also send a bag lunch home with each person.   If you or your group would like to volunteer one Saturday, please contact us to find out how to get involved.
 
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD – Thank you to all who prepared shoeboxes.  The boxes have been delivered and we look forward to participating again in Fall 2018. 
 
SALVATION ARMY – The Salvation Army has between 50-60 people staying in their shelter daily, and they need churches and organizations to provide meals.  We would like to put together a team from HBC to provide at least one meal a month.  Please contact the church office (433-2456) if you would like to be part of this team.
