What is God calling us out of or away from?

I cannot believe another year is drawing to a close. With Thanksgiving Day behind us, we can give thanks for our Savior as the Christmas season is here. I am thankful for each of you who have worked so diligently to set up for the Christmas Hayride. I am thankful for each of you who have volunteered to be here one or more weekends.

The Purpose of Discipleship Ministry

The purpose of our Discipleship Ministry at South Hills Baptist Church is just four words (and one hyphen): Becoming and Building Disciple-Makers. It’s so simple, and yet implicit in the phrase itself is the truth that discipleship is a life-time process. ...

Back to Normal

Summer has come to an end, school is back in session, and schedules are back to normal. Well, if we can call hectic and chaotic normal? This summer has been a great time to spend with family on vacation and at camp as we learned to deepen our relationships with God....
