Walk God’s Way…

As many of you know, I grew up in a small country town located in Conecuh County about 100 miles south of Montgomery. My Father was a farmer. One of my fondest childhood memories is walking barefoot and following the “cow trails” through the pastures on the farm. (I was “barefoot” from April – October at least.) For those who aren’t versed in farm life, cow trails are the paths the cows would walk throughout the pasture; traveling from the barn to the pond or various other points in the field. … [Read more...]

A Note From Dale

Lanelle and I are most thankful for the privilege of serving the Lord by serving You,His Church, His People, Eastern Hills Baptist Church. You have been so warm, receptive and friendly. Lanelle is a great judge of churches, and she keeps commenting on your friendliness, I agree. Friendliness is a key indicator of the church health. On a Friendly-Scale of one to ten, you are a ten. That’s great! Keep up the smiles, hugs, and handshakes. An interim pastor has to be a “faster pastor.” An interim … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan

We were challenged this past Sunday to “Be a Barnabas” and to follow the example of Barnabas and be an encourager. I hope that you have found opportunities in your life this week to practice this principle and be an encouragement to others. We look forward to this Sunday and to be anticipating the message that Dr. Huff will bring. We are grateful that God has led him to Eastern Hills during this interim time. Dr. Huff also challenged us to finish the commitment that we as a church made for … [Read more...]

With what are we Filled?

Sunday, Dr. Dale Huff had a very inspiring, challenging and convicting sermon as we seek God’s leadership in the search for a new senior pastor. He challenged us to “grow” during this interim. He shared we must BE: 1) Prayerful (for His will not our own); 2) Faithful (in our Attendance, Service and Giving); 3) Patient…it will take time. Don’t run ahead of God. Dr. Huff’s Scripture passage was Philippians 2:12-13. Consider a portion of this passage.....continue to work out your salvation with … [Read more...]

A Note From Greg

Happy New Year! Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your strength. And love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37 New Year’s Resolutions: A time for new beginnings and a time we can reinvent ourselves. Maybe one of the things we should strive for this new year is to know God better. There is no doubt we all would love to know Him better. We would all like to know that we are walking in the center of His will. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord … [Read more...]

A look back & beyond…

2017 is almost over. Christmas will be here in less than a week! We celebrate the Joy & Hope of this season as we look forward to the adventurous days ahead. Simultaneously we pause to remember the events of this past year. For some of you this past year contains milestones for which you are gratefully excited: graduation from high school or college, the birth of a child or a grandchild, a new job, a promotion, happy family gatherings and more. For others reminiscing contains more pain than … [Read more...]

A Note From Greg

Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year! It is a great time to tell people about Jesus. Everything points to Him. From the evergreen representing Eternal life to Holly representing the crown of thorns and death of Jesus. Even the music playing in the background when you shop, often times is about Jesus. It’s an easy thing to say to someone. “I love that song” It reminds me of…..” It is also a great time to invite people to your … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan

Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  It is also the busiest time of the year. From Christmas shopping to Christmas parties many times we are exhausted by the time Christmas day gets here.

There are many opportunities around church to help you get into the Christmas Spirit and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in the coming of the Christ Child. On Sunday afternoon at 3:00 PM will … [Read more...]
