Prayer Walking Ministry Begins Saturday, May 28

By God’s love and grace, He has blessed our church beyond measure. He continues to give us a presence in the Homeland Park Community as well as an impact on our region's state and world. When things are going well, the temptation is to stay in a comfort zone, unfortunately the Bible says nothing about doing that. 

Did you know that Homeland Park Baptist Church originated at a church plant to reach the people of the down and out “Tin Town” community. Small tin shacks stood cramped close together where our field and family life center are now. A few people had a burden for those in need and did something about it. 

While our church has a burden for our community today, we must be out “in” our community. Starting on May 28th @ 10:00 am I will begin this new ministry of prayer walking in our community. For one day a month I will be walking the streets of Homeland Park for the sole purpose of praying for those people and houses that I pass. I am prepared to do this alone, but prayerfully invite you to join me. 

The greatest way to get a burden for our community is to be in the community and pray for them. If God gives us the opportunity to interact with people I will but the primary purpose is to pray. If you are older and cannot walk then drive. There will be prayer guides, directions and a celebration time at the end of the walk. Ask God if He would give you the burden to pray and walk with me. I can’t wait to see what He is going to do. 

In Him, 

 Pastor James

Confession, Reflection and The Lord's Supper

Yesterday, our church observed the ordinance of the Lord''s Supper or Communion as some call it.  Our church is blessed to have a committee that prepares this for us on every fifth Sunday.  This practice is designed to take us back in our hearts and minds to that dreadful night where Jesus sat at a table with His disciples to prepare them for His pending crucifixion .   The purpose of the Lord's Supper is not for us to go through the motions, but to remember all that Christ did for us.  His body was broken and blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.  Communion is a time to reflect, appreciate and give honor to Jesus for what He endured for us. This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
