Finishing Strong

year end

Dear Church Family,

What a year we have experienced together at Hardy Street Baptist Church!

Could we have imagined God’s work in just under 365 days? We celebrated baptisms and mission trips, Bible studies and building renovations and much more as a faith family this year. How can we measure the impact of so many kids engaging with God thanks to the most incredible kids and student ministry volunteers?

What a remarkable year of ministry with renovations to our preschool and student ministry areas topping the list as well as the addition of several new staff members. We housed the WCU Winter’s School of Music, added an orchestra, and we sponsored missionaries around the globe who are changing the world for Christ.
