Our Core Activities
We are a network of singing ensembles; rehearsing in groups of up to 16 participants, meeting in homes. About once monthly we gather all ensembles together for mass rehearsals.
A typical HtH weekly gathering consists of a family-style meal, music rehearsing, learning and discussing, and praying together. Most often this happens Tuesday evenings from October through May.
If you would like to join our gatherings, please
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
Music with a message! Our repertoire is specially selected to serve our missional pillars of building community, expanding worldviews, developing leaders, and fighting for justice.
Many of our songs have been composed or arranged specifically for us through our HtH Composers Guild, consisting of HtH leaders, participants and friends! If you have some ideas for songs that would fit for HtH, please let us know!

Few experiences build community faster than gathering together around a table to share a meal or feast!
We are so grateful to many friends of HtH who give of their time, talent, and treasure to supply meals for our ensembles.
If you are interested in serving HtH through preparing meals,
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
We devote time in our gatherings to learning, particularly topics related to leadership and justice. We aim to to develop our character and our capacity for leadership. We aim to raise our own awareness of injustice and develop healthy responses to it. Resources may include Bible study, books, videos, articles, guest speakers, conferences, and Learning & Serving Trips.
