Happenings at HBC Sunday, December 5th!

Sunday, December 5th, Brother Lonnie will be preaching in both morning worship services. Rhonda and I will be out-of-town for our 25th Anniversary! I will be back preaching on December 12th. On that Sunday I plan on beginning a special Christmas series of sermons from the book of Isaiah titled "Christmas in Isaiah." The messages will be based on the following Scripture passages from this wonderful Old Testament book:

December 12: Isaiah 7:1-17
December 19: Isaiah 9:1-7
December 26: Isaiah 11:1-9

Don't forget to join us this Sunday evening, December 5th at 6:00 p.m. in the church sanctuary for Hebron's Christmas presentation . . .
"Sing! Choirs of Angels!"
Presented by: The Worship Ministries of Hebron Baptist Church

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
Our 5,110 International Missionaries receive over half of their support from the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Pray about what God would have you give above your regular giving. Envelopes for this offering our in the pews.

ABC Angels
Last Sunday we had a great response to our Christmas ministry of blessing the elderly and disabled adults in our community who have little income and lack family support. There are still some available ornaments on the tree in the glassed foyer representing individuals in need. Remember, please bring in all your items before December 8th. Thanks for your incredible generosity and for being a blessing to others!

Have a Blessed Week!
Pastor Joe

Happenings at HBC This Sunday, November 28th!

Sunday's Scripture Reading: Psalm 67, NIV

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm. A song.

1 May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine on us—

2 so that your ways may be known on earth,
your salvation among all nations.

3 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.

4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.

5 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.

6 The land yields its harvest;
God, our God, blesses us.

7 May God bless us still,
so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.

Happenings at HBC This Sunday, November 14th!

Plan on being with us this Sunday for a great day of worship!

Sunday is Operation Christmas Child Dedication day. Boxes for Samaritan's Purse should be brought with you this Sunday for this special time of dedication.

The Scripture for this week's message is Psalm 95. This is a tremendous Psalm of worship and thanksgiving. Mission flows from relationship. If this true, then who we are and what we do is determined largely by our relationship to God in worship. When the relationship is right, the mission will be too.

Psalm 95 (NIV)

1 Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.

3 For the LORD is the great God,
the great King above all gods.

4 In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.

5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.

6 Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;

7 for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.
Today, if only you would hear his voice,

8 “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,
as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,

9 where your ancestors tested me;
they tried me, though they had seen what I did.

10 For forty years I was angry with that generation;
I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,
and they have not known my ways.’

11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’”

For His Glory!
