God’s Welcome: Hospitality for a Gospel-Hungry World  by Amy Oden

For the season of Lent, a significant cross-section of our congregation has considered Amy Oden’s book which pushes Christians to the depths of hospitality. This has been a useful tool in HCOB’s year of hospitality and will be available for anyone to take home and read after Palm Sunday.  

From Audrey's Desk - April 2017

The transition from March to April brings with it the hope of spring. It has always made perfect sense to me that it is during this seasonal change that we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus. A season that is abounding with images of re-creation and new life is the perfect time to remember the resurrection of Jesus and the new life he offers to each of us.  Holy Week is a special time in the life of the Church, carrying us from Palm Sunday to Easter morning.

From Tim's Desk - March 2017

This year, the season of Lent begins on March 1 with Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time for us to journey closely behind Jesus as he prepares to head to the cross and the resurrection. It is a time for us to focus on our spiritual selves, our true selves in Christ Jesus.
