Let's Go Christmas Caroling on December 13!

Join us again this year for a time of spreading Christmas cheer to our church members who are homebound and in nursing homes. They need to be reminded at Christmas that God loves them and so does their church. We need everyone to meet at the church on Sunday, December 13th at 3:30 PM. We will use the bus and members vehicles to split into caroling groups. You do not have to be a singer to do this, you just need to be willing to spread God’s love to those who need it.

Share The Light of Christmas at Our Christmas Eve Service at 7:00pm

You are invited to our Christmas Eve Worship at Homeland Park Baptist Church. We will gather in the sanctuary for a brief time of worship and celebration of the most beautiful gift ever given, the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Pastor James will also have a children’s message for all who attend. Dress for this service is “Christmas Casual” so bring your family to worship with your Homeland Park family. We hope to see you here. 

 "For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on His shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." [Isaiah 9:6]

Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes Are On Their Way, But There Is Still Time!

Arthur and Lou Ellen Higgins
Sending the shoe boxes to Concord Baptist Church's Drop Off location.

Yesterday, sixty-four shoeboxes were sent from our church family to Operation Christmas Child to be distributed all around the world.  Thank you for all who gave and prepared these boxes.  It is amazing to hear stories of how each box ends up in the hands of a specific child that meets their specific needs whether it be a pair of socks, toothbrush, doll or toy car. Pray for the hands that deliver these shoeboxes and for those that receive them.  Thank you church for reaching our world!

If you would still like to prepare a shoe box for a child there is still time. You prepare a shoe box and take it to Concord Baptist Church.  Here are the drop off times.

  • Wed, Nov. 18: 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
  • Thu, Nov. 19: 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Praying for Paris Tonight!

Monday Night Prayer Meeting(Every 1st and 3rd Monday Night of the Month)

Tonight we will be specifically be praying for the victims, survivors, governing officials and public servant in Paris in light of their recent attack.  As an American we can emphasize with them after the tragedy that hit our shores on September 11, 2001.  If you remember, there were a lot of people searching for God's hand in the midst of that tragedy and our Parisian brothers and sisters are doing the same.  Pastors and churches need our prayer support.  Sure you can pray where ever you are, but having the encouragement of others while you pray is powerful.

We will meet in the Family Life Center tonight at 6:00 pm.  Everyone one is welcome!

Farewell Reception for Jason and Elizabeth Elvington on November 18

It is bittersweet for me to announce that our youth pastor Jason Elvington has accepted a call to serve as the University and Youth Pastor at College Heights Baptist Church in Plainview, Texas.  We are sad to see he and Elizabeth go, but know God is leading them in this direction.  We want to send them off in a big way.  

We will have a farewell reception for them this Wednesday Night (November 18) in the Family Life 6:30 pm. The menu will be pizza and a cake.  We would also love, for some of our folks to bring some other desserts as well.

Jason's last Sunday with us will be November 22nd.  Please be in prayer for he and his family during this transition.  Pray for our church as well, to find the person God will provide to lead our youth.

In Him,

Pastor James
