Greetings Church Family,
Thank you for being so understanding and supportive of the last-minute decision we had to make this past week as we moved to one 11:00 service. Again, this was precautionary, but we felt it necessary to keep our people safe. Good news - we will be back to our current Sunday schedule, with two Sunday school times (8:00, 10:00) and two worship times (9:00, 11:00). Hope to see you Sunday morning.
There has been a change to our Trunk-or-Treat this year. We had originally planned a drive-through Trunk-or-Treat, but unfortunately due to Covid-19 we are unable to do that. So, instead of having an on-campus event this year, we are going to help equip you to go out in your neighborhoods and communities to spread the Gospel.
Sunday, October 25th, we will have bags of candy available for you to take home to use for this Halloween. It will include tracks and invitations for you to invite people to Hopewell. We are excited to hear what God is going to do through YOU with this outreach.
Please continue to pray for the Leadership Team as they seek the Lord about nominees to serve on a Pastor Search Team. The Leadership Team members are Brett Hurst, Rusty Reese, Matt Cox, Eric Massey, and Barry Ladd.
Please join us as we pray for the men who will help fill the pulpit.
The following men will be preaching on the upcoming Sundays…
October 18th - Dr. Emir Caner
October 25th - John Simmons
November 1st - Ryan Phillips
November 8th - Kenneth Aycock
Upcoming dates to remember:
- October 25 - Pick up candy bags and Church information to Reverse Trick or Treat.
- November 4 - Children’s Ministry Operation Christmas Child packing party.
- November 8 - collection of Operation Christmas Child boxes.
- November 15 - Annual Church Meeting. 5:00-6:00 p.m.
- November 29 - Acts 1:8 offering begins. Be in prayer about how you can give this year.
As new information comes to light, we will do our best to communicate with you, our church family.
Thank you for your faithfulness to pray. Please be patient as we all wait together to see what the Lord has in store for Hopewell Baptist Church.
The staff and leaders are available if you have questions.
Blessings and love,
Dr. Kent Barrett
Hopewell Baptist Church
