Our first Youth Camp Fundraiser went well. Thanks to your generosity and appetites, we raised $600 for students going to camp. This fundraiser would not have been possible without the leadership of Andrea Frailey. She not only organized this fundraiser but also recruited parents and leaders to meet her at 7 am Sunday morning to cook. Thank you to Andrea Frailey, Meshelle Peavler, and Margaret Nyoni for giving your time to cook so early. Thank you to our students who worked hard, and to our church family for your generous gifts and fellowship during the taco lunch....
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 groups of 8-24 people can accomplish that mission....
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....

Racism in any form is sin. These displays of white supremacy are satanic. There is no place for racism in Christianity or the church. We must speak out and live displaying the grace of Jesus Christ. Every race, ethnicity, and nationality are welcome at South Hills....
What an amazing journey Embrace Grace has been! Our first semester had exactly zero attendees. Though disappointing, we knew God put this dream in our hearts to continue with this ministry. The next semester, we had two lovely ladies, followed by four, then three, and now…six! Six beautiful girls will be treated to the largest baby shower we’ve ever hosted!...Keep Reading
What are some of your favorite gospel accounts or scripture verses that reveal Jesus’ character? Is it His interaction with the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4? Is it the way Jesus rebukes religious hypocrites in Luke 11? Is it the way He restored Peter in John 21?...Keep Reading
I'm so thankful we worship together every week. Sunday was exciting as we began our worship service with baptisms. I wish we could do that every week. There are four people waking up today with a new perspective and commitment to Christ....Keep Reading

Every Wednesday evening (with few exceptions) I have the privilege of conducting the rehearsal of our worship choir. Anywhere from 10 to 30 of us spend an hour (7:30-8:30) in the Choir Room (Rm. 100) preparing anthems and new worship songs we will lead during our weekly Sunday worship gathering and occasional special worship services. ...Keep Reading
We have made it to the final week of school as the month of June is around the corner. Summer is here (though the first official day is June 21st) and with summer comes a variety of emotions. Teachers and students are celebrating and rejoicing greatly with excitement. On the other hand, some parents are excited while others may not be nearly as excited for various reasons....Keep Reading
