When I sit back and consider what God has done through our Highlands Campus over the last year and a half, I am legitimately amazed. It reminds me of that famous William Carey quote from 1792-
Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God.
We launched HBC with just over 30 people, and as of today we already average over 100 in attendance. We’ve seen a church body emerge that loves God deeply and loves each other. We’ve rejoiced in baptisms, we’ve cried through trials, and we’ve prayed for God to continue his work.
This Sunday is an especially big moment, because for the first time HBC will be having services at our new location: 307 NJ-94, Vernon Township, NJ 07462 (across from the Highlands State Bank).
The Lord has seen fit to abundantly bless us with this location, and we want to use it to glorify him by making and maturing disciples of Jesus. We want to be faithful to proclaim the gospel clearly in the center of Vernon, and to minister the gospel as we love the people of Vernon.
There’s a ton of excitement about our new location, and we are anticipating a big crowd Sunday at 9:30 AM. If you live in the Vernon area and need a place to worship, come worship with us— we’ve got a seat saved for you. If you’re a part of the Green Pond campus and you’re looking to visit our new Highlands campus location, consider waiting a few weeks as we get settled in.
God has immensely blessed both our Green Pond and Highlands campuses this year. His Spirit is using his word to change lives, and we are thrilled to be participants in and beneficiaries of his work.
Praise God with us for this past year of Highlands ministry at Cedar Mountain School. Pray with us that God will glorify his name in our new home. Pray that people would be drawn to attend HBC. Pray for the making and maturing of disciples of Jesus.
