We are blessed with an amazing team of Wednesday Night Leaders. Our greatest hope for the middle school & high school students at HFBC, is that each student would be “forever-changed” by the love of Christ. Pray for each leader as they faithfully present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our HFBC students week after week. Also: pray for each leader as they faithfully live out God’s grace, mercy, & peace in the world.

KNOWING JESUS, THE ESSENTIAL TEEN 365 DEVOTIONAL (for 2021)
In 2021, I’m challenging our students to utilize the book: Knowing Jesus, The Essential Teen 365 Devotional. My prayer is that through the use of this simple devotional book (a Lifeway Resource), your child would grow in their faith in Jesus. Much of our HFBC Youth teaching emphasis at our February Strong Rock Retreat and expanded teaching throughout 2021 on Wednesday nights will center on the tremendous benefit of personal one-on-one time with God through personal Bible Study and Prayer. If your student doesn’t already have their copy, please stop by the HFBC Youth Ministry office, and pick one up for them. This is a free gift from HFBC to your child. We love them dearly. Thank you for the privilege of partnering in ministry with your family through HFBC Youth Ministries. In Christ, Jeff Ford ( email: firstname.lastname@example.org ) call or text: 706.809.**** / or call office # 706.200.1965
