Sunday our high school graduates did an outstanding job leading us in worship. It was a special time when we could commission our graduates as they go forth in planning for their future. They will be on their mission field as they prepare for their future. It was great to be a part of sending them out. Congratulations to our high school class of 2019!
Vacation Bible School is one of the most important weeks in our church. It is a week packed full of Bible study, worship and a lot of fun for our kids. Please be in prayer for this week as we have the opportunity to touch a large number of kids with the gospel. It takes a lot of workers for this week to be a success. We look forward to having a fun week but a week that will make a huge difference in the lives of many kids.
We have the opportunity this year to be the host state for our Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting. Before our convention begins, we have the opportunity to join with many other churches in our state to conduct an evangelistic blitz in the areas around Birmingham. We have joined with First Baptist Church in Pelham and will be working in Shelby County. This will take place on the Saturday before the convention begins. We need volunteers to help us as we share the gospel and make an impact for the Lord in Birmingham. We will leave from our church at 6:30 am and travel to FBC Pelham and have training for the day beginning at 8:30. We will then be off in groups of three to share the gospel. We will be given information to share and literature to give to those we will talk with. We will leave Birmingham at 4:00 and be home by 6:00 PM. I hope that we can count on you to help us represent Eastern Hills for Crossover Birmingham. Please call the church office to get your name of the list to help us with this opportunity or sign up in your Sunday School class.
We hope that you will plan to be with us this Sunday as we worship together on this Memorial Day weekend.
