A Few Notes:
- Promotion Sunday in School will be this week. All will meet together at 9:45.
Four new Adult Classes will also begin on Sunday.
As we look ahead to Sunday, our choir will sing and I will speak on Strengthening Souls at the 11 AM service. This will be from Acts 14 and the experience of Paul discipling new converts. At our 6 PM service; we will conclude our study of 1st Thessalonians with the message Final Exhortations to a Faithful Congregation from chapter 5. We will also have a report on the recent FFBC meeting at Tri-State.
I’ve been thinking …
The record of the New Testament indicates extensive care for new converts. It sort of reminds me of a nursery. The Apostle Paul, especially, followed up on those who came to Christ and nurtured and strengthened these new believers. As I think of this special “strengthening” ministry, I am challenged about our ministry to believers. Are we effectively fortifying adults and young people for the challenges that lie ahead? All of us involved in teaching ministries here at HBC need to evaluate our effectiveness in strengthening believers. We will visit this theme this Sunday morning as we continue to gear up for fall ministry. I hope to see you Sunday, promptly by 9:45.
