Tomorrow is Presidents’ Day; government is off and schools are closed.  As we consider past presidents of our great nation, most think of Washington or Lincoln – great men no doubt.  May I share a quote from the greatest president in my lifetime, perhaps in history: Ronald Reagan. In 1977 he wrote: “Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business … frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite.”  Reagan set forth a plan for the New Republican Party and was successful.

Today is your Pastor’s spiritual birthday!   It was 41 years ago today that God’s grace was made plain to me as a 12 year old boy.  I sought forgiveness of sin and found it at the Cross.  My life has never been the same!

Missionary Notes: HBC sends financial support to 33 missionaries every month.   We recently increased the amount given to several of our missionary families.   Our missionaries respond to a questionnaire every year, and we evaluate their needs.  Those serving on the church Mission Board are:  Bryan Lloyd, Glenn Carlough, Kathy Connelly, Deb Greenwood, Wayne Wright, Steve Wescott, and Pastor.  Gloria Nelson serves as the missions treasurer.  We look ahead to our Annual Missions Conference –  March 20-23.  Your faithfulness in giving from week to week enables us to care for these missionaries supported by HBC.
