•Attention Members and Visitors:The Kid’s area is undergoing a little facelift. The Sunday School classrooms were temporarily relocated on April 8th and 15th. We are hoping things will be back to normal on April 22, 2018. During this process, the new fellowship hall is being used for storage. Therefore, that area will be unavailable for use until April 24th. Keep checking back for updates as more information becomes available.Also, the new doors have been installed (right side of church at top of ramp and left side of church next to the heat/air units). Those doors are now EXIT ONLY doors or they may be entered with a church key. The only entrance doors will now be the front door and the door entering the fellowship hall under the portico. This has been done to improve the safety/security of our members, visitors and facility. •Don’t forget that it is time to sign up for Vacation Bible School (scheduled for June 10th - 15th). You can do so in the church vestibule.•We are still collecting money for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions. Our church goal was set at $2,000.00. We have received $1,185.00 towards this offering. We still need $815.00 to reach our goal for this year.•Posted by David England: “A great time was had by one and all last night (April 15, 2018) at the March Gladness celebration conclusion at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church! The music was excellent, the fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ across the “hill” was great, the deserts were perfect, and the butterscotch pie was to die for. It was good to see so many friends that you know there. Bro. Jones took the pie in the face graciously and it was a night to remember.There is some talk about returning the favor in a month and sponsoring a “thank you” desert meal for them. Stay tuned!”•There will be a Concealed Carry Deadly Weapon (CCDW) class on Saturday, April 21, 2018 beginning at 8:00 a.m. Byron Richardson, with the Lebanon Police Department, will be the instructor of the class. The class is 7 hours long (6 hours class time plus 1 hour of range time). It will be held at the Lebanon Police Department. The class costs $75 and can be paid on the day of the class. The participant will be required to have his/her weapon at the class plus 20 rounds of ammunition. There is a sign-up sheet on the table in the vestibule.•Men's Day is scheduled for Sunday, April 22nd. We will have a men and boys breakfast at 9:30 A.M. We encourage all men and boys to come eat breakfast with us and ask that all be praying for this special day in our church.•The next meeting of the MHBC Security “Safety” Team will be on April 24, 2018 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. There are two funds available to provide monetary support for the safety of the church facility, our members, and visitors: “Video Survellience Fund” or the “MHBC Safety and Security Fund.” •Every Sunday morning at 10am, we have a special time for our kids called Mountain Movers.Sometimes it may be a devotion, a short video, or our puppet “Mountain Man” with an important lesson... it’s a fun and inspirational time for the kids before they go to Sunday School. Also, during the morning worship service we have a time called Children’s Church, where the kids come to the front of the sanctuary for a short message and when that concludes all children, ages 5 and under, are invited to our children’s area to continue children’s church.I encourage you to bring your children, they are never to young to start learning about Jesus. It’s a beautiful sight to see kids learning, having fun and growing in their faith.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org call her at (270) 849-4768.
The five people who will constitute the Pastor Search (Pulpit) Committee include the following: Charlotte Benningfield, David England, Margaret Pyles, Jim Sabo, Jr., and Don Veatch. Please pray for this committee daily as they commit to finding the next pastor of MHBC. May God’s vision for our church be what is sought as we go forward.
