Or give to Kim Benningfield Skaggs for the GAs. Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated! Bill Approval Committee Meeting after the morning worship service on February 25, 2018. We are in the process of developing a Security “Safety” Team for MHBC. The next meeting will be on February 27, at 6:00 p.m.  Anyone interested in being a part of the team is encouraged to attend. You are not required to have a concealed carry license to be part of the team. There are many positions available for men and women. Contact Mckenzie Hardin or Kaylene Poff if interested or have questions. Bro. Billy and Dr. James Jones of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church (the Philistines), have agreed to a March Gladness Sunday School Attendance Tournament that will take plane in the month of March! The tournament will be played on the Sundays of March 11th, 18th, 25th, and April 1st. The two churches will compete with Sunday School outreach and contacts that can be scored and tabulated. Each class will have their score cards tabulated each Sunday morning on an official score card. Each contact made that week is worth 2 points, and a visitor that is invited to Sunday School and comes to the class on one or more of these three Sundays—is worth 3 points each! The winning church will be treated to a desert meal served to them by the opposing church. The opposing church’s pastor will also get a pie in the face! Of course, we want MHBC to win the March Gladness tournament, and see Bro. Jones get the pie in the face. Invite others to our Sunday School class and help MHBC in the March Gladness Tournament. Hopefully, it will be a lot of fun, and get folks to Sunday School to feast on the Word. The 4th Annual Couples Retreat has been scheduled for March 9-10, 2018 at Barren River Lake. Couples of all ages are invited to attend. We hope you will be able to join us. It is always a great time of fun and fellowship! There will be an evening session on Friday night and two sessions on Saturday morning.  Bro. Billy and Sue Ann will be leading us in this time of celebrating marriage. The cost for the retreat will be for your room at $94.00 plus your meals.  We will eat at the lodge where they have a wonderful buffet or you can order off the menu. If there are couples that would still like to be a part of this year’s marriage retreat please let Bro. Billy or Mark Carney know.  Those who have signed up have until March 5th to pay.  Make your check payable to the church and put on the memo line that it is for reimbursement of room at the marriage retreat.
Kaylene Poff is taking care of sharing our prayer concerns during the week.  If you want to be included on the email list that gets the prayer concerns/updates or you want to add someone to the prayer list contact Kaylene at  kaylene@pcscomputer.net  or call her at (270) 849-4768.

Billy Compton, Interim Pastor

Billy and his wife, Sue Ann, will be leading the 4th Annual Couples Retreat in March.  See more details about this event below. What an exciting time for our church! Taking Aim: Growing in Christ  Philippians  Most of you will be glad to know at the time of this writing there are only 55 days of winter left for 2018. This means some of you are looking forward to spring. It will be the growing season again. What an exciting time! Spring time will help you to understand the spiritual growth Paul was writing about in Philippians as he encouraged the Christians there to grow personally in their relationship to Christ. He also admonished them to grow together as a church family. Wow! That’s a lot of growing! How did Paul expect this positive change to take place?   Paul knew these believers in Philippi needed to become focused on hearing a word from the Lord. This word was “joy.” He wanted them to have “the Christlike mind that brings Christian joy,” being determined to grow in Christ and to eliminate as many distractions as possible.  I challenge you to make every effort in the coming weeks to be committed to active Bible study, worship, prayer, and ministering through the work of our church. Philippians will encourage us in how we do this. I invite you to join me for  the first sermon in the Philippian sermon series entitled, “Joyful Living in a Grumpy World” from Philippians 1:1-8. I look forward to seeing you Sunday at MHBC.  “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus”         (Phil. 1:3-6). Prayerfully,  Bro. Billy     (January 26, 2018)

Posted: February 12, 2018 by Bro. Billy God Calls at Christian Camp                                                     On Monday, July 15, 1963, I packed up a week’s worth of gear and headed to Camp Joy in Brownsville, Kentucky. It was hot and muggy outside, but I didn’t care. I was ready to take on the responsibility of counselor for eight ten-year-old boys through a week of camping: swimming, hiking, baseball playing, praying, studying the Bible, and much more. I was prayerfully hoping I would make a difference in these kids’ lives by sharing my Christian walk with them.  God had something more in store for me than I realized. He guided me day-by-day, until by Friday, I felt the Holy Spirit nudging me to answer a call to be a pastor and serve in full-time ministry. Wow! I was telling others God would work in mysterious ways His purposes to reveal when I realized He was speaking to me. I went home with a calling and a new direction that began fifty-five years ago.   God is still working to call young people when they draw aside and participate in a camp experience where they can focus exclusively on their spiritual lives. However, these experiences cost money. Kids need the funds to go to camp. Our kids at MHBC are worth your continued prayers and financial support. Many of you demonstrated your financial support last Sunday, February 12, as you participated in the youth spaghetti luncheon. Those attending donated $614.02.  Thank you to Erin Cox, along with the volunteers and youth, who worked this event.   Thankfully, Bro. Billy Why Have a Safety/Security Team and Proactive Safety Protocols? Safety means taking reasonable measures to make the place(s) where we meet safe and to be ready to respond to various emergencies, whether natural (such as tornado, flooding), accidental (such as fire), medical (such as heart attack, stroke, fall), or secondary to a violent act. These are several reasons to form a Safety/Security Team or to form proactive safety protocols at church.  According to statistics done by the non-profit Faith Based Security Network, in 2017 alone there were 117 violent deaths—defined as homicides, suicides, and aggressors killed in action—on faith based properties in the United States.

The Rev. Billy Graham, the Christian evangelist whose worldwide crusades and role as adviser to decades of U.S. presidents made him one of the best known religious figures of his time, died Wednesday (February 21, 2018) at age 99 at his home in Montreat, N.C, Official Obituary of Rev. Billy Graham
Prayers lifted for Rev. Billy Graham’s family and friends at this difficult time.  He was such an amazing spiritual man! So many national and world leaders looked to him for guidance! His leadership for our country and the world will be missed! He was a good and faithful servant of God and now he is in heaven with God! Thank you Bro. Graham!
