You are invited to join Hillsdale Baptist Church for today’s worship services. Associate Pastor Brian Barber will be teaching our auditorium class Bible Study, and it will be broadcast live at 9:15-10:10 AM.

Hillsdale’s morning worship is at 10:30 AM. I am beginning a new series today titled, Persevering in Tribulations, and taken from Paul’s Second Epistle to Timothy. Written during the apostle’s second imprisonment in Rome, the letter was not only a letter of exhortation to a young man Paul described as his “dearly beloved son” (2 Timothy 1:2), but was also his last will and testament.

The title of today’s message is, “Suffering, Serving, and Soaring in Trying Times.” Please clink on this link for student notes: 01 – Suffering, Serving, and Soaring in Trying Times – April 11, 2021 student blank

Today’s sermon will consider the spiritual requisites, and disciplines for ministry that Paul encouraged in Timothy. We will notice the ministry of Onesiphorous, a man who had sacrificially served Paul at a time in his life when he desperately needed a friend who would unashamedly minister to him in prison.

I pray this study will renew a passion for the LORD in your heart, and a revival for ministry and serving others in trying times.

With the heart of a shepherd,

Travis D. Smith
Senior Pastor
