EACH MOMENT IS ALL WE NEED, NOT MORE.”

Happy summer from the preschool! If you love children and would like to share a children's story or Bible story with our young friends we would love to have you visit. Please contact the preschool directly and we will talk about what gifts you would like to share with our little ones. Once school starts, we can set up times for you to come and visit with them.
Contact me at 904-254-7304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are currently taking a break from camps as we start to ready our rooms for the 2022-2023 school year.We would love to have continued prayers as we prepare our hearts for the new school year.

We are updating all our volunteer records. If you are actively supporting an event or ministry with your time and energy, we thank you. The first step in updating is to have all volunteers go to our website and read our Volunteer Handbook of Policies and Procedures and the Sexual Misconduct Policies and Procedures for HBPC found at this link https://hbpcusa.org/serve/volunteer-handbook. Once you have gone over the information in these handbooks, please fill out and submit the confirmation.
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!!
