Hanover Baptist Church Events

Tonight we shared a wonderful array of berry-themed treats: homemade strawberry ice cream, blueberry compote, fresh-picked strawberries, strawberry shortcake, a delightful fruit tart and strawberry pie. It was absolutely necessary to sample every one!

While we enjoyed the berry-ness, we discussed our new mission statement/motto: Real people of real faith, meeting real needs. We looked at the three sections of the motto and scripture that will guide us in each of those areas. It was a great blessing as we continue to move forward serving the Lord.

Tonight the MCT met with Darrell Webb and Vince Blubaugh, SBCV church strategists, to discuss our church mission statement. We’ve made great strides in bringing the mission statement together and we all agreed on a new motto for our church. Look for an announcement on May 31st.

Campfire Fellowship

As always, a special event for young and old(er) alike. We had perfect weather and the evening kicked-off with a great devotional by Pastor Crookshank. Pat and Rondel coaxed a warm and inviting fire from slightly damp wood where we enjoyed the light and a chance to roast our hotdogs and marshmallows. This evening’s s’mores were creatively made with marshmallows and oatmeal cookies for a sugar rush we won’t soon forget!

Pastor Crookshank brought a selection of his antique lanterns and regaled the youth with their history as he brought them to life in the late twilight.

Work Day

From 8:00 AM — Noon, members of all ages pitched in to work around the church. You can see the results in the landscaping/mulching around the front of the church and where weeds were scraped out of the parking lot. Step around back to see the new play set for the kids!
