The HPBC provides a baseball league in order to provide families with an opportunity for children to participate in a Christ centered activity. Our goal is to allow children to play and compete in a Christian atmosphere, and for their parents to have Christian fellowship. We desire for our players as well as families, to realize Jesus Christ should be the center of our lives. We encourage this through prayer, and a short challenge from God’s Word after each practice and game, and a concluding Award Ceremony, that has a Christ centered object lesson.
