THANK YOU, JERRY JOPLIN
I’ve always loved Jerry. But words cannot convey what he has meant to me & my family this past year following the death of my son. I will miss serving every day with Jerry, however all of us pastors know this: God calls us by assignment. And when God’s present assignment is completed, we absolutely must be prepared to accept the next one. Jerry’s final Sunday to preach here at BHBC, as our Sr. Pastor, is June 8th. Let’s FILL the church! Due to scheduling conflicts, a church-wide reception will be held two weeks later for the Joplin’s on Sunday, June 22nd.
THIS SUNDAY, 6/1
Choir: “It Would Take a Cross”
Preacher: Jerry Joplin
YES! CHOIR REHEARSAL THIS WED, 5/28 – IN BERGSTROM HALL; 7:15pm

Just in case you missed this powerful video I showed this past Sunday in both worship services…..
CHRIST & CHRISTIANITY
It’s been my personal observation that many people make the mistake of basing their understanding of Christianity on the actions of Christians. This will always give a flawed picture of Christianity – because mankind is flawed. Make certain to base your understanding of Christianity not on Christians, but on Christ. Look at the evidence, yourself. You decided if Jesus was truly who He said He was.
Three very good sources (aside from the Bible, itself) are written by Josh McDowell, Lee Strobel, and C.S. Lewis, all former atheists: McDowell’s “More Than a Carpenter”, Strobel’s “The Case for Christ,” and Lewis’ “Mere Christianity.”
GREAT BLOG – “Are We Headed for a Crash? Reflections on the Current State of (Christian Musical) Worship”
Been preaching this for about 14 years now. The blogger is spot-on (my opinion, as a vocational worship/music pastor.) No judgmental spirit here. Just a good word of caution, based on honest observation. More like a “warning light” on the dash of a car. Solid food-for-thought.
