Dear Hillsdale Family and Heart of a Shepherd followers,

I am looking forward to being back in the pulpit at Hillsdale Baptist Church this Sunday morning for our Missions Emphasis month.

October is dedicated to setting forth Hillsdale’s vision for world evangelism; however, this Sunday morning I am concluding my series on “The Lord’s Commandments” in the 10:30 AM service.  Our study this morning will center on the 10th commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Covet” (Exodus 20:17).

As part of our monthlong Missions emphasis, Hillsdale is welcoming a different missionary each Sunday throughout October.  Last Sunday, our missionary to Lebanon, Fady Maalouf reported on his ministry and outreach in the Middle East.

Today we welcome missionary pilot and Bible teacher, Dave Spangler to our Sunday services.

In addition to his ministry training national pastors in the Caribbean, Bro. Spangler is an active pilot assisting Operation Renewed Hope with that organizations disaster recovery ministry.  Bro. Spangler recently flew a Hillsdale team to Houston, TX  to assist churches in recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey.  He has also been making missionary aid flights to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria.

Bro. Spangler will be teaching in Hillsdale’s 9:15 AM Adult Bible Study and reporting on his ministry in the 6:00 PM services.

Today’s Scripture reading is Hebrews 11-13.

With the heart of a shepherd,

Pastor Travis D. Smith
