Welcome to HBC 

We believe that the gospel changes everything, and here, we hope you encounter Jesus Christ during our Sunday morning and Wednesday evening services.

Harrisburg Baptist Church has a rich history in this small Boone County community. For more than 100 years, we have sought to "Love God, Help Others and Be Thankful."

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming service. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our services and events have been modified or canceled. Browse our website for more information on what services are being offered. Let us know if you have any questions.

  • HBC resumes Wednesday evening services

    Modified Wednesday evening services have resumed at Harrisburg Baptist Church, beginning in September. Teens and adults meet in the church sanctuary at 6 p.m. for a book study on "James: Faith/Works" by author Matt Chandler. Pastor Michael Drews leads the group in discussion and a video lesson by the author is shown. Following the book study, there is a time of prayer.

    Kids also meet for continuing lessons and activities from "Bible Studies for Life." TeamKID, HBC's normal Wednesday night kids' programming, will not be held due to COVID-19 concerns. All kids in grades PreK-6 are invited to attend. 

  • Students receive supplies at HBC Back to School Fair

    More than 150 Harrisburg R-8 students receive school supplies during the third annual Harrisburg Baptist Church's Back to School Fair Saturday, August 1, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fair was held in a drive-thru format. We were not able to serve food or have games and a bounce house. We hope to resume a normal fair in 2021! Thank you to everyone who came to the fair, and to our church members for giving their time and resources to make the fair a success! Have a great school year, Bulldogs!

  • In-person Sunday services resume June 7

    After careful consideration, we have decided to resume our 10:30 a.m. worship service in person Sunday, June 7, 2020. This will include only our 10:30 a.m. worship service. We will not have Sunday school, and there will not be childcare during the service. 

    Below you will find some helpful information to help us do everything we can to mitigate the risk to those who are most at risk. We have made some temporary changes to ensure that we have done everything we can to be as safe and healthy as possible. 

    1. We love you, but we don't love your germs: If you are unwell, or feeling a little under the weather, please stay home. We will miss you terribly, but we want you (and everyone else) to be as healthy as can be.

    2. If you don't feel comfortable returning to church just yet, that's ok: Believe us, we completely understand. Just let us know, and we'll see what she can do to make sure you can still enjoy church from home.

    3. Masks are welcome, but please don't wear gloves: Masks are not required, but we understand if you want to wear one. The CDC recommends wearing masks when in public, in addition to physical distancing (6 feet) and washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. They do not recommend wearing gloves in a public setting, reporting that wearing gloves may lead to the further spread of germs.

    4. Please use the east door: Please use only the east door to enter and exit the church. This will help as we try to lessen the number of surfaces that are touched and have to be sanitized. 

    5. The basement is closed: Please remain upstairs during your time at church. The upstairs bathrooms in the education building will be the only ones open.

    6. Your seat may be different: We worked to make sure people could comfortably sit 6 feet apart. Seats that are not opened have been marked with tape, so your usual seat may not be available. Please take advantage of open seats, including ones on the side of the sanctuary. 

    7. Please remain physically distant: We want to hug your neck, too. But we're asking, for the safety of you and of others, and for those who may not yet be comfortable with hugs, handshakes, or high fives, to remain physically distant, at the recommended 6 feet.

    8. Wash your hands: If you or your children use the restroom, please make sure you or your children wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Germ-X is available throughout the church for your use.

    We can't wait to see you!
