For many years Hodges has participated with The Salvation Army in the Angel Tree program to bring joy to needy children at Christmas. The Outreach Committee is looking for someone to take over the coordination of the program this year. The Angel Tree program runs from mid-November through mid-December. Written instructions will be provided and former coordinators will be on hand to assist with questions. This is a very rewarding ministry. If interested please call Carolyn Wohlwend at 904-821-0400.

Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle in October 2018. Although the storm is long over, the damage to homes and businesses remains. HBPC, in coordination with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, is planning a mission trip to Panama City.
- The 4 1/2 hour trip to Panama City will be provided.
- Volunteers will be staying at Gulf Beach Presbyterian Church. Please bring your own linens, pillows and sleeping bags.
- Kitchen facilities will be available for breakfast and preparing sandwiches for lunch. We will visit local restaurants for dinner.
- A $120 deposit made payable to HBPC is required to cover the cost of lodging. Other expenses such as meals and incidentals are not included.
Please contact Jim Pellot at 904-992-8711 or email@example.com for an application or additional information.
As hurricane season has officially started, the HBPC family needs to start thinking about preparations again this year. Clink the link below to view the City of Jacksonville's 2019-2020 Preparedness Guide.
Please be aware worship will be moved to the Fellowship Hall until the repairs in the sanctuary are complete.
Please be mindful that while the Fellowship Hall is set up for worship, activities that are usually held there should be moved elsewhere until the repairs are complete.
It has come to our attention that we need to be careful not to place plastic of any kind into our paper recycle bin in the parking lot. One specific example mentioned was the little plastic windows on mailing envelopes can spoil a batch of paper being recycled. It only takes one small piece of plastic to ruin a batch. Please be careful and ensure that if you have any envelopes with the plastic window that you remove it before placing the paper in the bin.
Also, the Times-Union recently ran an article about recycling. One item that we have mentioned before, and to remind you of again, is to remove all paper labels from metal cans before recycling the cans. Similar to above, a paper label can ruin a batch of recycled metal. And, we have the perfect place for those labels, yep, our recycling bin!
Thanks for your efforts in keeping our bin full of recyclable paper only.
