Beginning January 24, HFPC will resume in-person and continue with online worship through our Facebook page.
Mask will be required. While some restrictions are being lifted in some places and for some people, the ongoing threat of the Covid-19 global pandemic will require that we return to church in a way that is measured and mindful of the needs of the most vulnerable among us. While some may begin to attend public worship in person, we know that some will need to continue to worship at home for some time.
We give thanks, then, for the promise of our faith—that the Lord God will bless and keep us, the risen Christ is with us, and the Holy Spirit connects us with believers near and far. We take comfort and inspiration from the example of the earliest believers, who “spent much time together in the temple” and “broke bread at home … with glad and generous hearts” (Acts 2:46). As we anxiously track the news in these times—with numbers of new cases, numbers of persons who have died, and numbers of those who are recovering—we remember the good news of the gospel: “And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47).
As this congregation begins to resume public activities, please know that we will do so through a careful process of discussion and discernment, with an abundance of caution and concern for those who are most vulnerable, upon consideration of the best scientific knowledge at our disposal, in the spirit of constant prayer, and with full trust in the grace of Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit.”
Worship – 10:15AM – Sunday

“We sing because we have something worth singing about.” So writes Noel Werner, music director of the Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton, New Jersey. Ask almost any member of HFPC what is most important to our church life and each would say, “Our worship.” In a day when people brand worship in many ways—traditional, contemporary, casual, liturgical—we like to say that we simply gather to worship the living God who has made us, saved us, and invites us to offer our words and songs of thanksgiving.
“The worship service is, to me, the core of our church and our reason for being. Our traditional style of worship glorifies God while teaching and uplifting the congregation.”
“The hymns of the church and the choir anthems are very important to my worship experience. I’m grateful for the dedication of our choirs and that we have both pipe organ and piano to lead us in our worship and make our worship meaningful.”
