At HPBC we strive to come alongside of our men and help them glorify God as they walk towards fulfilling His purpose for their lives. The Men’s leadership team meets on a regular basis to pray, plan, and strategize for meaningful ways to engage and invest in our men so that they connect with Jesus Christ, God’s Word, and other men. We encourage you to join us as we walk through life together.
This 25-Hour Overnight Retreat is designed to give men a break from the pressures and routines of life in order to help build meaningful friendships, and be challenged in the pursuit of becoming a holy man for God.

Tuesday Bible Study
TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
Tuesdays · 6:30 – 7:30am · Fellowship Hall · Teacher: David Borror
Beginning promptly at 6:30am, you’ll enjoy the fresh morning coffee, bagels and donuts, Bible study, encouragement, prayer, discussion, and community with other men.
Genuine Faith – the Book of James
Living out what we say we believe has always come with challenges. It was a major issue in the early Christian church, and James addresses the essential measurements that gauge the genuineness of a true, living, and maturing faith. What was a needed practical instruction in the first century, is equally as valuable and challenging in 2020.
Through this study, we will learn how to deal with trials and temptations, how enduring adversity ultimately brings joy, the value of extending mercy to others, the power of words for good not evil, and how to fight against the passions at war within us.
More than any other book in the New Testament, James spotlights the necessity for our actions to be in accordance with our proclaimed faith. We’ll be challenged to take a close look at our day-to-day lives and be affirmed by the overlap and be challenged by the gaps.
Special Feature: Pastor Chris Norman will begin this New Year study with a two-week equipping oriented series on how to effectively and meaningfully study God’s Word. This will provide an important foundation for us to get the most from our personal time in reading and learning from the Scriptures. Don’t miss the first two weeks – January 7 & 14. The study in James will begin on Tuesday, January 21.
WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY
Wednesdays · 6:30 – 8:00pm · West Fellowship Hall
Teacher: Matt Chandler, video teaching series
Study Facilitator: Mike Thomas
Beginning promptly at 6:30pm, you’ll appreciate the strong teaching ministry of Matt Chandler, along with the opportunity to be spiritually encouraged, pray for one another, and share in learning the Scriptures with other men.
Faith Works – the Book of James
Works don’t save us, but good works are to follow true faith as our beliefs and actions line up with each other. James clarifies what the Christian life should look like, providing practical wisdom for Christians and calling them to live out their genuine faith through good works. Perhaps more than any other book in the New Testament, James emphasizes the application of Christian belief.
Through this study, men will learn how to deal with trials and temptations, how enduring adversity ultimately brings joy, the value of extending mercy to others, the power of words for good not evil, and how to fight against the passions at war within us. Plan to join us for this spiritually challenging and highly practical study of God’s Word.
Wednesday Bible Study
SATURDAY MORNING OF PRAYER
Last Saturday of each month · 8:00am – 12:00pm · HS Room 36
This is your opportunity to join with other men in spending extended time with God in prayer—away from the cell phone, email, and the pressure of life.
Prayer begins as a large group, then men go off separately throughout the church for prayer and reflection with the Lord and His Word. Materials are available to help guide their time alone with the Lord. Men then regroup to pray and share about their time alone with the Lord.
Bagels, coffee and juice are provided.
