The Determined Sermon Series Resumes This Sunday

"Every Christian ministry is one generation away from oblivion. We must be intentional, be on our guard, live the gospel and share it!."
I will be unpacking this and more as we continue our Determined series. We will be in Nehemiah 7. Don't let all the names confuse you, there are some life changing truths in the text. See you Sunday AM at 10:30 am.

In Him,

Pastor James

Would You Like To Serve As A Messenger?

Each year our members have an opportunity to serve as messengers on behalf of our church to the Saluda Baptist Association.  What does a messenger do?
  1. Messengers are members who are in good standing with the church.
  2. Messengers represent our church at Saluda Baptist Association meetings for a term of one year by speaking on our behalf and voting. (Our church is allowed 15 messengers)
Let Pastor James know this Sunday (September 21) if you are interested in serving as a messenger.

Weekly Youth Update 9/15 - 9/22

Wednesday night, we continue our “Relationships” series by studying how we interact with our parents. The discussions have been a  blessing thus far and we look forward to continuing to grow closer to the Lord as we understand how He wants us to live! Bible study lasts from 6:30-7:30 and the gym doors open at 6:00 for anyone wanting to hang out! We look forward to seeing you there!

Revival at the Park, our church-wide revival, will be September 28 – October 1. The services begin at 7:00 each night. The last night, Wednesday, October 1, is youth night! Miguel Chavis will be sharing God’s Word with us as Mosaic from Anderson University leads us in worship. Prior to the youth night service, we will host a pizza dinner in the Family Life Center at 6:30! We hope that you’ll join us and please be in prayer that revival will occur in our church and that salvation will spread through Homeland Park!

The Homeland Park youth will join other area churches for the ENGAGE student rally from November 14-16 at Camp Longridge in Ridgeway, South Carolina! The cost is $99 and to be able to attend the trip, students must attend 50% of the Wednesday nights between now and November 12. A $30, non-refundable deposit is due October 15. If you have any questions, please email me at!

Look forward to seeing you this week!


Praying For Revival Part 1

As our "Revival At The Park" approaches, we must prepare ourselves for the work God wants to do because revival begins in the life of the believer before the church. For this week please pray for the following areas:
  • Pray for Revival to begin in our hearts.
  • Pray that God will give each speaker the appropriate message to be delivered.
  • Pray that people's hearts will be drawn to the services.

Special Guests Share How God Is Working Around The World This Sunday Night

This Sunday evening, September 14, we have a special Sunday evening service at the church at 6:00! Two guests will be sharing about the work God is doing in Africa! We cannot publicize more than this concerning the nature of their work. This will be an encouraging time of worship, prayer, and fellowship as we learn more about the work God is doing around the world and how we can serve Him in Homeland Park!
