We are deeply appreciative of the sacrificial giving of God’s people here at HBC this past Sunday for the building project at our school. This offering puts us that much closer to our goal as we look ahead to the summer months.  For some that may have missed last week, there are yellow envelopes in the pew.  Your special gift is appreciated.

Why Go to Church? One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, “I’m not going.” “Why not?” she asked.   I’ll give you two good reasons,” he said. “(1), they don’t like me, and (2), I don’t like them.”  His mother replied, “I’ll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church:  (1) You’re 49 years old, and (2) you’re the pastor!”

The HBC Ministry Statement:

Hardingville Bible Church exists for the glory of God.  We will strive to honor the Name of Christ, strengthen believers in the faith, share the Gospel with the lost, and stand for truth no matter the cost.

Milltown Pride was appreciated by all who viewed this film here at HBC.   Copies were sold both nights and may be available yet.  If you are interested in purchasing the movie – see Sharon.

The recent series of Sunday Morning sermons, Signs of Life; a five part series from the Epistle of 1 John is available on the church website to download or is available on CD.  Use the blue envelope.

Summer Ministries:  We have a team going to Bradford, PA, for a work project and a VBS; we will announce the team next week.  Our church mission board sent a special gift for Blaze [Australia, with a BJU team], Ben Ham [Philippines, with National Hoops], and a love gift to the Wilds for three of our young people working there this summer.
