First Sunday? Here’s What You Can Expect
Anytime a person attends a church for the first time it comes with fears of the unexpected. Consider yourself normal. I (Pastor Tim) pray these short notes and FAQ’s will help settle your heart on what a first visit to HHPC might be like.
How Do I Get There?

What do I wear?
In terms of ‘dress’, HHPC is a “come as you are” church. Some men wear blue jeans; others wear dress shirts; a few wear ties. Some ladies wear pants; a few wear dresses. In the summer, shorts are preferred by some. Seriously, I think wear what is most comfortable.
How old are people?
At HHPC there are children and adults of all ages. There are lots of couples; lots of singles; middle-age; upper-age. You will not feel “out of place.”
What is the music like?
A blend of contemporary and traditional. HHPC worship offers a wonderful variety – guitar, piano, organ, vocal ensembles, choirs, and yes, for those who grew up like me, we also incorporate traditional hymns! We worship the One True God, encouraging your participation.
What is the preaching like?
I preach from one book – the Bible. The sermons are roughly 20 minutes long. I have two goals in preaching. One, theological truth – what does God’s Word say? Two, relevant application – what does it mean to me? Want an example? Click HERE to listen.
Are visitors singled out?
No. We verbally welcome all of our guests. We want you to feel welcome at HHPC, but we don’t want you to feel embarrassed or singled out. During our Fellowship Time, you can expect friendly people to introduce themselves and welcome you.
Where do my kids go during the service?
A nursery for infants and young children is available. During the service there is a Children’s Message; after the message the young children may leave for Children’s Church. Of course, parents are welcome to keep their kids with them.
Can I talk with a pastor?
Yes, of course! Please speak to our Assistant Pastor (Jerry Brundle) or me anytime. You may ask any question(s) you like.
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday Morning!
