Weekly update

What a blessed couple of weeks we have had at Church Hill Baptist. We have had many students leaving for college, some for the very first time. We are in constant prayer for them.
Our Sunday school and AWANA programs are now up and running. What a blessing it is to serve in these ministries! These precious children and young adults are the future preachers, preachers wives, missionaries, deacons and general servants of Christ. This past Sunday and Wednesday we welcomed Evangelist Seth Ferguson to Church Hill Baptist. For his Wednesday sermon, you can click on the bottom of this page. For a young man, he certainly brought an old-fashioned fire with him. He is off to Howland, Maine to preach this coming weekend. We wish him very well.
Since we are talking about preaching, I have to say I have never, ever heard a boring sermon here..... Pastor Wiley has been on fire lately and if you have missed any installments of his "But we preach..." series, please download them and listen. Wheeeewwwiiiieeee, talk about fire from above!
We want to congratulate Pastor Josh Lovelace, as he was officially voted in as the Pastor of Truth Baptist Church in Jefferson. Praise the Lord! Woo Hoo!! (Hankie raised in the air!)

Looking forward we have missions week beginning Saturday October 3 with a "meet the missionary" night at 5 pm. Please sign up to bring casseroles and salads. I am getting hungry already (it does not take much). Be prepared to spend the rest of the week with us as the conference goes straight through Wednesday night. We have missionaries and preachers lined up. Look for a blessing and plan to be there!
As for the Jones family, the Lord is moving! We will be making some major changes soon, please pray for us as we enter the next very exciting part of our life! This time we are stepping out of the way and letting the Lord have the reigns. For 37 years I followed me. Now it is the Lord's turn.
Thank you all and may the Lord richly bless you.
