Songs of Christmas Ministry Web Banner

We have a convergence worship at HFFBC, meaning the implementation of historical and contemporary elements (traditional hymns, psalms, readings and contemporary songs) to bring about thematic and theological cohesiveness. Our primary purpose is to give glory, honor and praise to the Lord regardless of style.
