Dear Church Family,
A milestone is a stone marker that is placed on the side of a road to mark the distance from a given point. In 2015 our church has the potential of reaching some significant milestones. One milestone we will celebrate this year is our 85th year in ministry! Whether you were here in those early years or if you have recently joined us, we can all celebrate the fact that The Hill Baptist Church has sought to make Jesus known. I trust that our celebration of the past will fuel our passion for ministry today.
Another milestone that we will reach this year is adding a new Sunday morning worship service. Our church hasn’t had two Sunday morning worship services in a long time. Launching a new worship service is a great undertaking and requires much faith. However, if we want to see another 85 years or more of fruitful ministry we must be willing to take these giant steps of faith!
This year will most certainly provide many other opportunities to walk by faith and not by sight. Are you up for the challenge? I don’t know about you but I want God to use me in a mighty way this year. I want to be open to His will. I want to be more concerned with what He wants than what I want. I want to be the person He wants me to be. Is that your desire? If so, submit your life afresh to the Lord right now. Tell the Lord that you want to follow Him this year more than in years past. If we will be available to the Lord, then I believe 2015 will be a year of significant milestones for our church.
