God has truly been at work this past week! Below are a few reasons to stop and give Him praise as we head toward Easter Sunday along with our church financials through April 5th.
I'm so grateful, in the midst of this crisis, to continue to be able to worship each week through our live stream on Facebook and on HHBC.net. More than that, the gospel is reaching further than ever before as people watched from 7 different states and 4 different countries this past Sunday!
Life Groups online are also reaching more people! This past Sunday we saw over 100 children join a life group via Zoom and our student ministry is even seeing new students join life groups each week. If you, your child, or your student would like to join a life group, email Brian Freerksen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our food pantry ministry continues to meet the needs of over 80 people each week with many first time needs being met. In addition, the food pantry ministry received a $14,000 check from a member of the community to help continue to meet the needs of the community! Praise God that He provides in incredible ways and thank you to all of our food pantry volunteers who are doing such an amazing job each week!
This week, as we head toward Easter, is our week of prayer. Andrew Murray wrote, "We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth." To join in praying with us visit hhbc.net/prayer.

Thank you for continuing to be a generous church! One reminder is that the new Charitable Contribution Act that was signed into law encourages Americans to contribute to churches and charitable organizations in 2020 by permitting them to deduct up to $300 of cash contributions, whether you itemize deductions or not. You can always give to Hyland Heights online at hhbc.net/give, by dropping your offering by our offices, or by mailing your offering to our office at:

"For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” ~ Matthew 17:20
