Make Disciples

I have been so blessed to see our church staff and leadership go above and beyond during Vacation Bible School.  Mary Lou and her team of decorators, teachers, cooks and helpers gave the children and their families of the Homeland Park community a clear picture of who Jesus is.  I never grow weary of seeing people serve and children coming to know Jesus Christ as their Savior.  The purpose of VBS and everything else we do, is to make Christ known and grow disciples.  The great thing about VBS is that it is a “front door” to many who will prayerfully walk through and allow our church family to minister to them.  Please, pray for us we follow up with those who made decisions.  Pray that the seed that was sowed will gain roots and be washed away. [Matthew 13]

Also, I am looking forward to our Sunday Nights Alive Praise events that we will have this month.  I always enjoy the fellowship with other believers.  We are a church family! Families enjoy spending time together. Use these nights to invite those who may be curious about church.  The two greatest witnessing tools you have are your personal story of how you met Christ and an invitation to church.  Use them both and watch God do great things in your life and the lives of others.

In Christ,

Pastor James

Weekly Youth Update: 6/22-6/28

Last week, the Homeland Park Baptist Church youth joined the youth ministries from Southside Baptist Church and Eureka Baptist for COLA WARS! I'll have an update next week detailing more of the event, but we had an amazing time in fellowship, worship, and hearing the Gospel proclaimed! Check back next week for more information! 

This week, our church is hosting Vacation Bible School! We had a great turn out on our first night, both from participants and volunteers. Continue to pray for our group as the Gospel is shared and relationships are built. If you weren’t able to make it out last night, be here today through Thursday! Students who have just finished 6th-12th grade will be volunteering. Students who have just completed 5th grade will be attending VBS as participants.

This Wednesday, middle school and high school students are invited from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm for ultimate frisbee and flag football on the fields beside the Family Life Center. Plenty of water will be provided so all you need to bring is your game face! If the weather is too hot, we will move inside for basketball.

On Saturday, June 26, the youth will head to Six Flags for a day of thrills and fun! The cost for the trip is $30. To attend, they must have the appropriate forms signed and attend 70% of the Wednesday nights from now through July 22. A $15 deposit is due by July 8.

Below is the rest of our schedule for our summer activities! We pray these events grow us closer to the Lord and continue to deepen relationships. Also, remember our Wednesday night meeting times will still be each week, from 6:30-7:30! Our regular Wednesday night meetings will be just as exciting as the summer socials!
