Dear Harvey Browne Family,
The operations of Harvey Browne have had to shift during this past week. Kentucky government officials have deemed that non-essential businesses must close or operate remotely. Due to this decree, we are no longer able to host operating hours in our office, but we are instead operating “remotely” from home. This means a few changes – phones will not be answered by a person, but please leave a message and we will call you back at our earliest convenience. We will be picking up our mail only a few times per week, but letters still get to us! Most importantly, if you have questions for the office, please e-mail Cheryl Granger (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Samantha Lund (email@example.com).
Worship Services – The Session has voted to have no worship services or activities through April 20, 2020. However, we will have videos on our Facebook page and on our website/YouTube.
Building & Office Hours – Our building is currently locked and only accessible to essential personnel if necessary. Our office is currently operating remotely, so if you have questions the best option is to e-mail either Cheryl or Sam. We strongly encourage members to follow the recommendations of state, local and federal governments to not gather unnecessarily and stay home if you are over the age of 60.
Help continue to support HBPres financially– When we no longer are able to host worship services, we also can no longer pass an offering plate. Income is vital because we still need to pay utilities, ministries, and staff. We are developing an electronic way for members to continue to support HBPres and will share its availability with you as soon as possible. Until then, please continue to send your checks by mail to HBPres or sign up for an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) for your support to happen automatically and easily. EFT Form Questions? Speak with Cheryl Granger.
We want to keep you informed! If you do not currently get our e-mails or text messages and would like to be added to our distribution list, please let us know by calling the office.
How do I watch a sermon or devotion? To view a video, Click on the YouTube channel link at the end of this post. We’ll also be doing specialized adult devotions and children’s messages by video, so check back often to ensure you see it all!
Do you need assistance? HBPres recognizes that we have members who are over 60 or who may need assistance retrieving prescriptions, groceries, or other necessary items but may not be able to do so. Please reach out to our office if you need an extra pair of hands because we have volunteers available to assist with these tasks. Let’s support one another and assist each other when we need it – call the office for further details.
Presbyterian Women- We have created a HBPres Presbyterian Women page to help circles stay informed. Click here to visit.
Did we miss something? Questions/Concerns are normal. Don’t be shy – give us a call in the office and we will help you to the best of our ability.
Thank you for remaining a connected family during these challenging days.

I sat down on a Thursday morning a few weeks ago next to my bowl of cereal and morning paper. The headline read, “Food stamps cut 36 dollars a month, more cuts still being debated.” Thursday is one of my two mini-fast days. In order to lose some weight, I had been eating 600 calories two days of each week. I stayed on my regular diet the other days. I have now reached my goal and am simply trying to maintain my weight, so I still eat my 200-calorie breakfast four days a week. Odd isn’t it, to be reading about people not able to get...read more
I had to twist and turn one night recently trying to get to sleep. I was having trouble making the pain in my back go away. I have gotten to that wonderful age where you have to turn just a certain way to finally get comfortable enough to go to sleep. Age does have its woes, doesn’t it? But Saturday morning finally did come. I had a wedding rehearsal on Friday night that was filled with joy and excitement. I find particular delight in doing a wedding for someone I watched grow up in the church. I went for my walk early, rain was...read more
