We will hold a Congregational Meeting on Sunday, January 27 at 12:30 p.m. (as soon as the late service concludes). We strongly encourage all members to plan to attend. At this meeting we will elect officers, vote on the pastor’s terms of call, hear reports from elders and staff, and entertain new business. This is your opportunity to learn about all that’s been happening at HVPC and ask any questions that may be on your mind. Childcare -- with a bounce house! -- will be provided and the Deacons will serve a simple lunch. If you have any questions, please contact the church office (email@example.com; 215-947-5500).

CURRENT SERMON SERIES
Beginning Sunday, January 7, we will be looking at Romans for the entire year. You can always catch up on the latest sermons online by clicking here.
"The Book of Romans is primarily a work of doctrine and can be divided into four sections: righteousness needed, 1:18–3:20; righteousness provided, 3:21–8:39; righteousness vindicated, 9:1–11:36; righteousness practiced, 12:1–15:13. The main theme of this letter is obvious of course—righteousness. Guided by the Holy Spirit, Paul first condemns all men of their sinfulness. He expresses his desire to preach the truth of God’s Word to those in Rome. It was his hope to have assurance they were staying on the right path. He strongly points out that he is not ashamed of the gospel (Romans 1:16), because it is the power by which everyone is saved."
"The Book of Romans tells us about God, who He is and what He has done. It tells us of Jesus Christ, what His death accomplished. It tells us about ourselves, what we were like without Christ and who we are after trusting in Christ. Paul points out that God did not demand men have their lives straightened out before coming to Christ. While we were still sinners Christ died on a cross for our sins."
