From The Pastor
Our 2019 Global Missions Celebration is Sunday night, September 29. While we will celebrate all that the Lord is doing, our spotlight will be on our international partnership in Uganda. Please make your plans to attend. Go ahead and make your reservations as soon as possible. You can do that on the App, the website, or the card in your worship guide. Our GMC has become one of the great highlights of our year. As always, this one will be a night you do not want to miss.
Overflowing joy in spite of circumstances, deep relationships unbroken by time and distance, and genuine partnership in the work of the gospel are all produced in us when we live out of who we are in Christ Jesus. IDENTIFY: LIVING FROM THE INSIDE OUT is our new series from the book of Philippians. In this letter written by the Apostle Paul from prison in Rome, we learn what that looks like in our lives. Join us on Sunday morning as we work our way through this important book.
There are two new faces you will be seeing around our offices. Cyndi Rogers is our new Ministry Assistant to Bro. Chris and Stephanie. Cyndi and her husband Jeff are new to the HBC family and they are the parents of two children. She served as Children’s Minister at Agape Baptist Church in Scottsboro and has done VBS and children’s small group leadership training for the Alabama Baptist Convention. Teresa Pace has also joined us as Ministry Assistant to our Youth, College, and Worship ministries. Teresa’s husband Darrell is Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Tuscumbia. The Paces spent 7 years as International Missionaries in Bosnia and are the parents of four daughters. We welcome both of these ladies to our team.
SMALL GROUPS, SMALL GROUPS, SMALL GROUPS! Have I mentioned lately how important they are? If you are not connected, let us help you find the right one. If you have gotten disconnected, this is a great time to jump back in. I am sure your group misses you. You will be blessed and they will be blessed.
