As announced last week, the Deacons Committee is very pleased that Rev. Joshua Sklar will begin a six-month renewable term as HBC’s Interim Minister with the service on January 2nd, 2022. Those of you who have been tuning in to the online services during the past couple of months will have seen services led by Pastor Josh.

Pastor Josh brings a wealth of experience in congregations of all sizes to this position. Because of the alarming increase in the number of daily Covid infections of late, only prerecorded online services will be available until is deemed safe to reopen. The Deacons and Directors will prioritize working with Pastor Josh towards the reopening of the church.

Pastor Josh has expressed a keen desire to work with the Deacons in developing opportunities for the congregation to get to know him as he begins his work with us. Details will be forthcoming as they are developed.

As Deacons, it is our fervent hope that the church doors will be reopened to in person worship services early in the New Year.

In the meantime, we thank members and adherents for their patience and support during these past very difficult 20 months. We wish all of you happiness and health in 2022.
