Youth Trip to Winter Jam UPDATE

Image
WE HAVE MOVED OUR DEPARTURE TIME FROM THE CHURCH UP TO 2:00 PM TO MAKE SURE WE DO NOT GET TURNED AWAY.  THE BI-LO CENTER WILL BE PACKED!
Friday - February 8th
Featuring Toby Mac
Other Guests: Red, Matthew West, Jamie Grace, Newsong, Sidewalk Prophets, Royal Tailor, Jason Castro, OBB, Capital Kings and Speaker: Nick Hall

Pastor James will be taking our youth and their families to WINTER JAM!  This is a concert with many of today's most popular Christian bands and singers. At the heart of Winter Jam is ministry and it's commitment to no tickets and only $10 at the door. (You may also want to bring $ for food and souvenirs.)  This remains a unique characteristic to Winter Jam and underscores the importance of making the event affordable for families, individuals and groups of all sizes.

We will leave the church parking lot at 2:00 pm.  We need to get there early enough to get a place in line due to those arriving later often being turned away because the Bi-Lo center is full.  Bring a…

As we get older, our lives begin to get stuck into a pattern of daily events that become routine, religious and habitual.  We wake to eat breakfast, go to work or school, come home, rest, begin our evening regiment of activities with our family, watch a little television and go to bed only to get up the next morning and do it all over again.  The benefit of having a routine keeps us focused and disciplined, unless the routine is destructive.  The pattern of our lives produce a fruit in our lives that not only help sustain us but impact those around us.  Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit because you can do nothing without me.” - John 15:5 (HCSB)  The word “remains” three things:

1.  Jesus gives us a place.  Do you remember the last time you had a family dinner? From an early age I was taught how to set a place setting.  Put the fork on this side, make the blades of the knife face this way, fold the napkin like so…

The Church In Tin Town

CHURCH HISTORY THE CHURCH IN TIN TOWN BY Ellen B Watson Greenwood, South Carolina
It all began with a tattered Christmas card, a boy who needed help, and a young woman who cared.
Homeland Park Baptist Church had its seed planted in a Christmas card written to a lonely little boy in a reform school. A newspaper account of a youngster in trouble burdened the heart of a young Christian lady, Miss Frances Murphy, who later married Clyde Glenn. At Christmas time she sent a card to the little fellow. In a few weeks a soiled envelope with a child’s handwriting was received. On the same Christmas card that had been sent was this simple message, “Please find my mother and tell her to write me.”

With assistance from postal authorities the mother was finally located in an area south of Anderson known as “Tin Town.” From this meeting with the mother and subsequent visits into the community, the need for God and His Word was felt by Miss Murphy. Feeling the Holy Spirit leading she made plans for a Sunda…

New Improvements

Image
We would like to thank our Building Maintenance committee for their work in improving our church for the glory of God and the spreading of the gospel. After only a week, they have fixed their first work order by securing some loose pews in the sanctuary. They also did some upgrades to make entering the left side of our church safer.


New ramps and rails for the left entrance of our church
End caps for the safety rails leading to our Family Life Center.
If you notice items that need to be brought to the Building Maintenance Committee, please fill out a work order which can be found in the office or your Sunday School class room.  Thanks again Odell and Larry! We appreciate everything you are doing! Everyone remember that the greatest journeys start with a first step! Let us walk together.
