New Hebron Baptist Church

Monthly Newletter

 Note From The Pastor:   


“We have only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered…Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves…The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Dear church families,

As many of you may aware Gentry Terrell, 5 was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, stage 4 Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gloma (DIPG). Gentry is the daughter of Brydon and Amy Terrell, the granddaughter of Tommy and Teresa Terrell and Stacy and Lisa Nolan.

According to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, DIPG is a very aggressive growing tumor that starts in the brain stern, controls breathing, heart rate, the nerves and muscles that help us to see, hear walk and talk. Symptoms include problems with balance and walking, eyesight issues, difficulty chewing and swallowing, nausea and vomiting, headache and facial weakness or drooping. Due to the tumors location in the brain stem surgery is rarely an option, making the cancer difficult to treat.

This is where we are asking all area churches to become a part of the hands of Christ. We want to reach out to this family in their time of great need. Reminiscent of the miracle where Christ fed 5,000 with just 5 loaves of bread and two fish, we can show this young family true Christian love in our community.

On Sunday, February 4, 2018 we are planning a “Loaves and Fishes Day” as a way for all area churches to help. On that day, organizers are asking churches to take up a collection, if each person only gave $1.00 what a difference that would and could make. Like the loaves and the fish that day long ago, this family will be forever blessed.

Love to all, Bro, Mike

Total Given $2,202.00, Thank You for giving to the Lord!

Reminder:

Our Wednesday night meal team leaders wish to share a reminder! The Wednesday Night meals are intended to enhance our Wednesday Evening Church Activities. The sale of plates covers only the cost of the food prepared by our team members which requires a lot of work. This is not a “Fund Raiser” rather a means of providing a reasonable priced meal for those that attend Wednesday Evening Services. That being said, we will no longer be able to provide “To Go Plates” with the exception of: Shut-ins and Wednesday night attendee’s/workers that can’t get to church in time to eat. Please help us with this matter!

Meals are served 5:00 – 5:30 PM each Wednesday. Please take advantage of the opportunity for some good fellowship time before Prayer Meeting and other activities each week. Meals are $3.00 per person and it must be paid on the Sunday Prior to each Wednesday or no later than 8:00 AM Monday in the church office.

            Tim and I want to thank you so much for the $25.00 gift card you gave each of us. It was so unexpected and a real encouragement.

            We so enjoyed our time with you. The food was delicious and we continued to enjoy it throughout the next week.  Thank You!

                        In His Grace, Tim & Helen Anderson

Dear Friend,

            Thank you so much for your generous gift and precious card! I don’t know how you know, but it always comes right when I need it most. May God bless you. Your gift blessed me.

                                                Love In Christ, Sharon

Bro. Mike & Newhebron Baptist Church Family,

            Words cannot express how much my family and I appreciate all the prayers, love and kindness that everyone has shown us during the loss of our dear sweet Ginny. We would also like to express our thanks for the wonderful and delicious meal provided for all of our family and friends. The visits, monetary gifts and flowers were also greatly appreciated.

            Ginny touched many lives, how many, I truly did not realize, but as her Mother, it makes my heart fill with joy. I thank God for the precious time we had with her. I know the days ahead will be difficult, but as a Christian, I know who holds the future, and our hand.

            We love each of you and thank God for you,

            Brenda Rainey and family

NOTES From Bro. Jerry

          Super Bowl Sunday! Every Sunday is SUPER if you are in God’s House! As I write this article I am reminded of this morning’s worship service. The music really brought us into God’s presence. Thank you Worship Choir for all your extra time in preparing to lead God’s people in worship. Well done! In order to fill the choir loft (chairs) this year we need you to help us. We have started rehearsal on Easter music and it’s not too late to begin rehearsal with us each Sunday evening at 5:00 PM. May we all be found faithful in using our God given talents (musical) for His glory. What better place than in God’s house. And all God’s people said: AMEN!

                                                                                                      May God Bless, Bro. Jerry Peagler
