The HBC Back Page is a weekly column appearing on the back of the church bulletin each Sunday, often including church news, anecdotes, book reviews, or comments from Pastor.


This year for summer camp, we decided to do something a bit different and send our teens to The Wilds of New England instead of the original North Carolina version. Having been a community center for many years, the New Hampshire campsite became a Christian conference center but was later abandoned. Through a series of providential events, the director of TWNE, Rand Hummel, worked with others towards continuing The Deering Center through The Wilds Christian Association, answering a longtime prayer and desire to establish a conservative Christian camp in New England. Though the ministry has a unique and smaller feel to it, the biblical philosophy and lively program of The Wilds continues. We are excited to take a group to experience it firsthand in just a few weeks. Please pray that real change and healthy friendships will be established and continue as a result of our week at The Wilds of New England this year.


Pray for our young people during these weeks!
