Trunk or Treat

TRUNK or TREAT Wednesday, October 3 0   6:00 PM Each year more and more children and their families from our community stop by for this outreach event. This year we are holding this event a day early to give more of our families an opportunity to participate. 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.

If you would like to donate candy, please bring it to the HPBC Bible Study Office when you come to church.

They loved their friend who was paralyzed so they took his mat, went to the roof and lowered him at Jesus’ feet. Notice what Jesus says next . . .
