“BE HAPPY IN THE MOMENT, THAT’S ENOUGH.
EACH MOMENT IS ALL WE NEED, NOT MORE.”
~ MOTHER TERESA
We’d love to have you at our Sunday worship services. If not in person, then live on your computer screen. You can do this by clicking on the below link below at 10:00 am Sunday mornings. If you have internet access, your computer should do the rest. If you can’t join us live, you can still watch the service anytime later during the week.

Our new study is from the book Where Prayer Becomes Real by Strobel and Coe. In this down-to-earth book, spiritual formation experts Strobel and Coe will show us how to:
Pray within the forgiveness Christ offers
Pray as one beloved of God
Pray as a way to open our hearts to the truth of ourself
Pray in a way that moves beyond cliches to where prayer becomes real.
This 8 week study will be a workshop with dedicated time to practice what we studied for that week. Call or email (email@example.com) now to reserve your book ($10). Some copies are currently available in Debbie’s office.

Continue to be safe and have a blessed Easter!
As more individuals are becoming fully vaccinated, the CDC has begun relaxing some safety guidelines that pertain to group gatherings including only persons who are fully vaccinated. This has created some confusion regarding the safety guidelines for places of worship, including HBPC, which have not changed. As a reminder, the following CDC safety guidelines should be followed when meeting on the HBPC campus.
- Correctly and consistently wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth
- Stay 6 feet away from others who do not live with you
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds or use Hand Sanitizer
- Stay home when you are sick
- Avoid poorly ventilated indoor spaces
- Avoid crowds
- Get tested for Covid-19 if you have symptoms or think you may have been exposed to someone with Covid-19
- Get vaccinated when the vaccine becomes available to you
Thank you for following these safety guidelines and helping to keep our community healthy!
Mayor Lenny Curry issued a mandate late Monday making masks mandatory in public indoor areas, unless you have breathing problems, are at a restaurant, or are under six years of age. In order to be in compliance, we are asking everyone over the age of 6 to wear a face mask. Thank you.
As we are all aware these are unprecedented times and we as a church have to remain strong, prayerful and hopeful. Please help in donating toward the COVID-19 fund which will assist those who have been affected financially during this crisis. The idea is to have the funds available for our own members and the community around us. Donations can be made on our church website online at https://www.mychurchwebsitegiving.com/App/Giving/hodg4140174 or mailed to the church office at 4140 Hodges Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32224. As always, your gifts serving God.....changing lives!!
