When God's goodness comes to you, the proper response is to sing.  Throughout the gospel of Luke, we see this pattern carry out through four specific encounters.  Over the next four weeks, we will be diving into the songs of our Savior, the songs of Advent.  Songs of hope, waiting, celebration, and faith.  Join us as we actively wait for our God to meet with us again.

7 Day Musical Devotional Resource

Songs tell a story.  And the song of this season is to recognize and sit in the hardships of life.  Each day of this week, we've created a devotional based around the songs we sing here at HNaz while we wait.  Songs of hope, lament, expectation, and preparation.  We hope that as you sit and wait for the Lord, your whole self will grow closer to God.

2022 In Review

In looking back over this past year, we're reminded of God's blessing and faithfulness.  Through this reflection I hope we are also inspired to continue living, "Up. In. and Out." Thank you for your continued investment, faithfulness, and sacrifice for HNaz and God's Kingdom overall." -- Pastor Bobby Kemp
