  • Adopted in 2007, our Vision Statement helps to define who our church is and where we are going: “From generation to generation, we will seek to proclaim the good news of God’s grace by following the example of Jesus Christ who ministered to

    the needs of others through teaching, serving, and loving God and neighbors.”

    A Love Letter... to the Army of Angels from HBC:

    Last week, and particularly on

    Saturday, an "Army of Angels"

    descended on our house and

    packed, boxed up, and trans-

    ported books, linens, CD's, cut

    glass, china and other kitchen

    equipment to the new house,

    and even brought food to sus-

    tain the other angels.

    Said Angels included Beth and

    Doug Heard, Jim and Judy

    North, Bonnie Madre, Susan

    McCauley, Alystra Barefoot,

    Susanna McKendree, Jane and

    Roy Austin, Frank and Mary

    Jane Ransom, and Jane and

    Pat Garvey. We actually

    looked up the hierarchy of an-

    gels, but it got too complicat-

    ed, so we have to assume each

    category was properly repre-

    sented! We are grateful be-

    yond words, and are touched

    by your thoughtfulness and


    Love from,

    Tom & Wanda Matthews

    The Month of April

    "The sun was warm but the wind was chill.

    You know how it is with an April day,

    When the sun is out and the wind is still.

    You're one month on in the middle of May,

    But if you so much as dare to speak,

    A cloud comes over the sunlit arch.

    And wind comes off a frozen peak,

    And you're two months back

    In the middle of March."

    ~ Robert Frost, 1926~
