From The Pastor

That your JOY may be FULL

What is worldliness and why is it so bad? This coming Lord’s day we will be in 1 John 2:15-17 where John tells us, “Do not love the world or the things of the world.” The Bible teaches us that the world and the things of the world are constantly seeking to pull us away from God. When that happens, we lose our joy and purpose for life. 

Dr. Robert Jeffress and Ellis/Hill BMA Associational Meeting

What an exciting evening of worship and praise we have planned for this Sunday evening! Dr. Robert Jeffress is going to be with us and I am so thankful for this man of God. He is a powerful voice in our nation for good and we need to encourage and pray for him. Invite your friends, neighbors, and family to come and join us. Then, Blanton and Jamie Feaster are going to be our featured soloist along with our choir. It is going to be a great evening to exalt our Savior, Jesus Christ! 

Student Center Dedication

The Student Center dedication was great! A big thank you to everyone who helped make it a special evening. The room was packed and God was with us. I am excited for our students as they worship and reach out to bring others to Jesus. A special thanks to our Student Pastor Jimmy Brock and our Director of Communications Chance Hagerman for their leadership in this project. 

Now we still need some help with the cost of the renovation. The cost was $77,000. If you would like to give an offering toward the student center, that would be great. We are going to designate our Christmas offering, the Gift for the Savior, to go toward this fund. 

Fall Festival

The Fall Festival is going to be so much fun! Thank you so much for the candy. Please continue to fill the buckets with candy for these children. Now, don’t stay home and think there is nothing for you to do. Come and help us. Just your presence will be a big help among all those kids. So, put on your farm clothes and come join us. 

Deacon Ordination

On November 5th, we will have a deacon ordination in the evening service. These six men have a proven record of service and love for our God and our church – Joel Brown, Terry Lawrence, Johnie Ozymy, Wendell Prewitt, James Strength, and Jody Ussery. Mark your calendars to attend this very special service. 

Fill The Pallet Collections

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and not everyone has food in their pantry or refrigerator. Each year our church prepares Thanksgiving baskets to help those who are in need. If you know of someone in need, please give their name to Pastor Jeremy. All the remaining baskets will help our community through Waxahachie Care. 

This Sunday we will begin collecting canned goods. There will be a place near the doors to place your canned goods. Thanks so much for your compassion and help.

 

I love you and I am glad to be your pastor and friend,

Bro. Richard
