Behold the Savior

How great it’s been, for the last two Sundays, to focus on the meaning of Christmas Carols through the preaching of God’s Word! I’m so thankful to God for a Pastor who approaches weekly sermons creatively and carefully. This coming Sunday, our church family will have the opportunity to encounter and respond to Biblical truth in song for the entire service, under the ...

Hospitality

This is a time of year that provides our church family with another opportunity to choose where our focus will be. As Thanksgiving and Christmas approach, we tend to “get back to basics” and “focus on the things that are truly important” such as “family and friends.” I suggest that this is the perfect season in the life of our church to rededicate ourselves to ...

In retrospect, this document was his own version of “I Am a...

Community in the Body

One of my favorite aspects of “I Am a Church Member” is the opportunity our Sunday morning Small Groups have to reflect upon and apply the theme from the previous week of the sermon series. As I reflect upon the overall discipleship goal of our church (that we become and build disciple-makers to the glory of God) I continue to marvel at the awesome way that small group...

Unity in the Body

Yesterday was another great day of worship at South Hills Baptist Church as we entered week two of our church-wide series “I Am a Church Member.” There has been a lot of excitement leading up to this series and now we are experiencing even more excitement as God is teaching us how to be effective, Biblical church members....
