From The Pastor

As we enter the month of May, we look forward to the summer months. Some great things will happen in the months ahead.

First, VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is coming. VBS weeks are exciting, energetic, amazing times. Vacation Bible School is one of the most evangelistically focused things we do. For five days on the 7 Points Campus and five days at Broadway, hundreds of beautiful children will be immersed in a world of Bible study, exciting activity that reinforces what they learn, and people who love them in the name of Jesus. We will have the chance to influence children and their families we may never meet any other way.

Please be praying for VBS Directors Susan Lambert (7 Points) and Rachel Barnes (Broadway) and for our Children’s Minister Stephanie Gilliam as they lead an army of volunteers. If you can help with VBS on either campus, please let one of these hard-working ladies know and I am confident they can put you

to work. It will be a great week you will not soon forget.

As you know, Ryan Tyler recently moved to a new position on our staff. After guiding our youth ministry for more than eleven years, Ryan became our Discipleship Pastor. He is doing a great job already. Please be praying for Bro. Ryan as he gets adjusted to his new role and gets his hands around some very significant responsibilities, making our small group Bible studies more effective at reaching and discipling people and increasing the effectiveness of our Guest Services ministry. If you are looking for a place to serve, please see Bro. Ryan. He can help you find the right place.

If you are not currently involved in a small group Bible study, please talk to Bro. Ryan or stop by the Next Steps table in the lobby after the service on Sunday and let us help you find the right place to plug in. You will not regret it. You will be amazed at how fast your small group will become family and make you feel even more connected to the church. It is primarily in those small groups where we do life together.

God is doing great things in all four HBC campuses and I am grateful that He has allowed me to have a small part in that. Please pray for 7 Points, Broadway, The Well Church Florence, and The Well Church Huntsville. I love this church family and I am so glad God has allowed me to share the journey with you.

Your Pastor,

Bro. John Brock
