Note From The Pastor:
My Dear People,
Below is an article that I recently read that I felt led to share with you! Please read it and take it to heart! It was written by Blogger, Author Tim Challies –
7 things your church needs from you. Continued From Last Month
…Live Like a Christian All Week Long
It is easy enough to be a Christian at church, but then you get home. But then you go to work. But then you go to school. And then you’re surrounded by people acting ungodly, and even worse, you’re left along with your own thoughts and your own desires. Yet your church needs you to live like a Christian all week long.
Make your devotional life something you do not just for the good of yourself, but for the good of others.
Each of us faces different challenges and different temptations. But one key to living like a Christian all week long is spending time in Word and prayer every day. Make this a priority no matter how busy you are and no matter how crazy life seems. Make this something you do no matter how badly you’ve sinned and how little you feel like doing it. Pray day-by-day not only for yourself, but for your church. Take that membership directly and pray through it from A to Z, and then start over.
…Get to Know People Not Like You
Churches are involuntary communities—we don’t get to pick who comes to them, God does. So what we have to do is learn to live with these people and learn to love these people, even when they are very different from us. “For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” If your church is divided so that all the young adults hang out together and all the older folk hang out together, or if all the people with accents hang out together and all the people without accents hang out together, that makes a statement about the gospel—that the gospel is not big enough and powerful enough to really make people love one another even though they are different.
So commit to get to know people not like you. There is no reason you shouldn’t be able to say that some of your best and closest relationships are with people who are very different from you.
Few things reveal the heart better than money. Money has an amazing way of displaying what you really believe and what you really value. No matter who and what stage of life you are at, there is no better time than now to learn to be generous with your money. Here’s what the Bible says: “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” You must give, and you must learn to do it cheerfully.
Here are just 2 quick tips:
- Remember that it’s not your money. The money belongs to God—He just gives it to you to manage it. And He means for you to manage it well and to his glory.
- Give to the Lord first. I know people who say they can’t give to the church, and yet they’ve got a new cell phone and are carrying a cup of Starbucks into church every week. That doesn’t compute. Learn to give the first and best of your money to the Lord. The harder that seems, the more you need to do it.
…Be a Great Church Member
Make yourself invaluable to your church, and do this by serving other people. I love reading about Dorcas, the woman Peter raised from the dead who was described as being “full of good works and acts of charity” (see Acts 9). “When Peter arrived, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him weeping and showing tunics and other garments that Dorcas made while she was with them.” Dorcas was a great church member. She loved people so much, and did so much good to them, that the whole community mourned when she died.
Would that be you? Would the people of your church weep as they remember you for all the good you did to others? Find the place you can serve your church, and serve there without fail, without excuse, without requiring praise and accolades. Do it for the good of others and the glory of God. - Copied

Thank You Notes
Dear Newhebron Baptist Church Family,
There are certain people we thank in our prayers, and one of those people is you, and this comes to say, “May God bless you forever for all you so thoughtfully do.”
We love and cherish you all for being there for my mama and us. The Hiel family
Dear Church Family,
Our family would like to thank everyone of our church family for the prayers, visits, calls, food, text, donations to building fund, hugs and kisses during this difficult time. John loved each and everyone of you; his wish was to get to come to church one more time. This was because of the love that he had for his Lord and his church family.
There are no words that can be said to thank Bro Mike and my Sunday School class for all the support that you have given me and my family.
When you think there is no way, that is when God really shows you what He can do. This was what he can do. This was what He did on the Sunday that the love offering was taken up for our family. We just can’t express our thanks for the love that was shown to us that day.
Thank you again for your love and support, and please keep praying for our family.
Love to all, Elizabeth, Van, John Jr., Candy, Temo and Grandchildren
Dear Newhebron Baptist Church,
Your kind and thoughtful expression of sympathy is deeply appreciated and gratefully acknowledged.
Thank you so very much for the beautiful flowers and your much needed prayers for our family.
The Vonice Thompson family
