Weekly Youth Update: 12/15-12/21


This week, the youth have their yearly Christmas Party from 6:30-7:30 on Wednesday, December 17, in the Family Life Center! Last year was a blast as we reflected on the significance of Jesus’ birth and wrapped-up the fall semester! We hope that you join us!

The Homeland Park Youth will be attending the Clemson-Wake Forest basketball game on Saturday, January 24. The game tips-off at noon and will we leave from the church by 10:00 am that morning. The cost for the game is $5.

We have reserved 10 tickets for students and because we have a limited number available, the tickets will be reserved on a first-come basis. To reserve a ticket, a student must pick up a permission packet from me on a Wednesday night or Sunday morning, fill it out completely with parent signatures, and turn it in to me. The first 10 to turn in completed packets have reserved tickets and if we have more than 10 sign up, extra students will go on a waiting list.

Finally, we will not have Wednesday night services next Wednesday, December 24. Enjoy Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with your family!

Christmas Caroling and Chili Cookoff This Sunday


Join us again this year for a time of spreading Christmas cheer to our church members who are homebound and in nursing homes. They need to be reminded at Christmas that God loves them and so does their church. 

We need everyone to meet at the church on Sunday, December 14th at 4:00 PM. We will use the bus, van and other vehicles to split into caroling groups. You do not have to be a singer to do this, you just need to be willing to spread God’s love to those who need it. 


After caroling, we will all meet at the Family Life Center at 6:00 PM for a Chili Cook-Off. We are asking our members to bring their special chili dishes to be judged for the title of “Best Christmas Chili”. If you do not cook chili then bring some desserts or cornbread. HPBC will furnish the drinks and fixings.

Weekly Youth Update: 11/17-11/23


The Homeland Park Youth attended the ENGAGE retreat this past weekend! We had an amazing time of worshipping with youth ministries from other local churches, learning more about God, His plan for us, and fellowshipping with one another! A longer post will be up by next week detailing the trip and the amazing time we had worshipping God and spending time with His children!

This week, we have Bible study Wednesday, from 6:30-7:30. The Family Life Center will open at 6:00 for anyone wanting to hang out. Our “Relationships” Bible study series will wrap us this week as we finish our discussion on dating and marriage. Invite your family and friends and we are excited to see you there!

Our Jonah Series Concludes for The Wednesday Night Bible Study Tonight

How important is it to serve God with the right motives?



Chapter three of Jonah ends with God doing a great work through Jonah and in the lives of the Ninevites who repent and turn to Him. From a preachers standpoint Jonah was a success. He led a crusade that caused an entire mega city to repent from their sins and turn to God. Why not leave Jonah’s story with that great achievement? Chapter four shows that Jonah did the right things with the wrong motives. We cannot hide our motives from God. Thankfully God looks at who we are, more than what we do for Him. Those who serve God must not let sin enter their motives while serving. Jonah needed an attitude adjustment and God’s loving hand gave him one. Are your motives for serving God always pure? Have you missed the blessing of God at work due to your wrong motives? Join us tonight as we wrap up this amazing Journey of Jonah. We begin at 6:30 in the Sanctuary and would love to see you there!
