Trunk or TreatTuesday, October 31st6:00 PM

Each year more and more children and their families from our community stop by for this outreach event. Please bring your vehicle with candy to give out to the children in our community who come through our parking lot, as we reach out to their families. Dressing up and decorating your trunk is not a requirement to participate but is always appreciated. As you can imagine there is a large demand for candy as well. If you would like to donate candy please bring it to the HPBC Bible Study Office when you come to church.

Fear Not and Hold On

Satan’s desire not only wants to hurt you physically, he wants to kill your joy, crush your spirit and strain your relationship with God. Paul talks about this battle in Ephesians 6.

HPBC Youth Corner

HPBC Youth Corner
On behalf of the youth of HPBC, I want to thank everyone for the hospitality you all have shown this summer to our youth.
