UPCOMING EVENTS + HAPPENINGS
We believe that following Jesus leads us to a place of uncommon unity where we lay aside the labels that usually divide us for something much more life giving.
To embrace our unity and live it out in the real world, it’s not enough to simply say we’re different. We must BE different. This is why our core values of Love, Acceptance, Compassion, Inclusion, and Transformation are not just words – they are woven into the fabric of who we are. People and relationships were important to Jesus, so they are important to us; we invite you to experience the HSC difference in action!
Wherever you are in your life’s journey, we know that the transforming power of a relationship with Jesus Christ is the critical ingredient. We welcome you with God’s grace and open arms – today, right where you are.
PASTOR CHRIS + SUSAN BEATTY
Chris and Susan have a heart for the local church and to serve families throughout Anne Arundel County. Together, they dream of the big things God will do through HSCC, and they celebrate the amazing things God has already done. Having been at HSCC through all her seasons, they are in awe of the faithfulness of God throughout the life of His church here at HSCC. Chris and Susan have watched as God has sustained His church over the years, and they’re honored and humbled to serve HSCC and God’s people alongside so many talented leaders.
Chris is from a mixed family (one Catholic parent and one Methodist parent) and graduated from Regent University, while Susan grew up attending a Baptist Church. Between them, they’ve attended and served in churches of every denomination and flavor imaginable. They truly believe that the local church is the hope of the world. Chris and Susan take no credit for themselves – they give the glory for any success in their lives to the providence and grace of God who has consistently brought amazingly gifted people into their lives time after time. They want you to discover your identity in Jesus, and the freedom of following Him.
Chris and Susan have two daughters, one son, and a very spirited dog.
