You are invited to join the Hillsdale Baptist Church family for public worship services, or online at http://www.HillsdaleBaptist.org, this Sunday morning, February 14, 2021.
Hillsdale’s associate pastor, Brian Barber, will be teaching the auditorium class at 9:15 AM, and Pastor Smith is preaching in the 10:30 AM worship service. I invite you to download the student lesson for today’s message that is titled, Faith: “As for God, His way is Perfect,” and is taken from the Book of Job, chapters 3-9.
With the holidays behind us, and recent health trials passing, Hillsdale’s pastoral staff quartet is excited to be singing together once again, with this Sunday’s number titled, “Everlasting God,” arranged by Mac Lynch.
We will, by God’s Grace, do more than survive; we will thrive!
The world has offered nothing, but “bad news” this past week (and every week), so I encourage you to be in God’s Word and spend time in His presence to combat the negative influence. Try to block out the noise of the world, and perhaps the noise within your soul. Focusing on God’s Word will bring the needed “good news” that is so important!
I am not a plodder by nature, and that means I struggle when God providentially says (through His Word or circumstances), “Slow Down; Stop; Meditate on this!” I had planned to take no more than two weeks to study the life of Job (and we will study at a rapid pace); however, as I reviewed and pondered spiritual principles from his trials, I realized how much we all need to be encouraged to keep our focus on the LORD. I pray our study in the Book of Job will bless you as much as it has me!
Two Evangelists and Two Powerful Sundays
Providentially, God has brought to our ministry three beloved evangelists in the first two months of 2021. Evangelist Tom Farrell was mightily used by God to stir our hearts in January. February 21 and 24, we are blessed to have Evangelist Ron DeGarde, his family, and team with us for Sunday’s 9:15 AM and 10:30 AM services, and Wednesday evening, 6:30 PM. An unexpected joy is the opportunity of having you meet Evangelist Bill Rice III, Sunday morning, February 28, 2021.
With the heart of a shepherd,
Travis D. Smith
