Right now, our pastors and staff (and probably you, too!) are in the process of preparing ourselves for a new phase in the life of the church—you’ve probably heard it by now, but the Governor’s Office is moving the state into Phase 1 of the coronavirus response plan; which means Hyland Heights is reopening the doors soon! You can find out what Phase 1 looks like for our church at hhbc.net/coronavirus.
For me, this moment in our lives has brought to mind a moment in Scripture where we also see people preparing themselves for a new phase of ministry to take place. It’s the major account that we have of a man named John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Jesus’ ministry here on earth.
