Summer is here, and we can't wait to spend time outside relaxing at picnics, competing at volleyball, and Lord willing witnessing our brothers and sisters get baptized in the lake! Because not only does summer bring so many great outdoor activities in the city, it also means that we get to enjoy various events put on by HTC that only happen in the summer. So, as you start to look at your summer and make plans, we would encourage you and invite you to join us for as many of these events as you can!

For any questions or to request more information, email


Join us every Monday night at Montrose Beach beginning June 18th through August 30th starting at 7:00pm for our summer volleyball league! Anyone is welcome to join a team, regardless of skill level. Sign up to join a team here.

Church-Wide Picnics

Throughout the summer, we have three church-wide picnics hosted by our different congregations. This is a great time to get to know other HTC congregants from the different congregations and share a meal together! Food will not be provided, so please plan to bring something for yourself and something to share. 

Community Groups

During the summer we will have community groups gathering to study the Bible, pray, attend city events, and hang out. Contact for more info.
