As we approach the Easter season, it has become our tradition at Burnt Hickory, as a Body of Christ, to prepare our hearts for this special time by turning to our Lord, Jesus Christ. One way we can do that is through LENT Bible Readings and prayer. We invite you to join us in preparing for Easter by reading the complete story of Jesus’ birth, life, death and His glorious resurrection. Make this a focus for you and your family’s daily life and see the light of Jesus shine brightly from your hearts.

CLICK TO JOIN THE BHBC PRAYER MOVEMENT

BHBC Prayer Movement

The vision of the BHBC Prayer Staff and Leadership Team is that everyone in our church will know through experience and practice that everything they seek to accomplish in their personal growth and in their service for the Lord must first begin with prayer - that each person will seek personal cleansing, repentance, and supernatural praying. We want our church family to view ourselves first as people who pray and then as people participating in organized prayer through our prayer movement.

The goal for our church is that we will be a "...house of prayer..." (Isaiah 56:7). So everyone is encouraged to be part of the BHBC Prayer Movement in addition to other areas of service. If you would like to know more about opportunities for service, see further down.


Opportunities for service:
