2020 Theme: Moving Beyond Obstacles
“You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God, I can scale a wall.” Psalm 18:28-29
With all the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic travel restrictions, stay-at-home orders, and other unknowns for November 2020, the previously scheduled HPBC Annual Meeting in Kona will instead be virtual.
The Arrangements and Programs Committees are recommending to the HPBC Executive Board that rather than an in-person Annual Meeting, a video update with celebrations of what God has done in the past year along with updates from SBC entities will be distributed to Hawaii Pacific Baptists.
The video update will include many of the same elements we usually experience in our Annual Meetings including music, scripture, prayer, updates from Hawaii Pacific Baptists along with greetings from our Southern Baptist Agencies.
We will also get updates from Hawaii Baptist Foundation (include a special memorial moment for Arnold Goto), Hawaii Baptist Academy, and International Ministries. The video report will also include reports from various HPBC Committees.
The President of our Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Executive Committee, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, will not only bring greetings, but he will also share our Annual Message.
The 2020 Annual Meeting will be streamed live on Facebook Live @hawaiibaptist on Thursday, November 5, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. HST
The video will be made available on our HPBC Vimeo Page
after the stream for churches who wish to gather to view it together.
November 5 @ 3:00 pm
