X-TRA REHEARSAL SCHEDULE:
In the past, Sunday afternoons have seemed to work best. Please make every effort to join us on the following dates!
Sunday, Oct. 29th – 3:30-5pm
Sunday, Nov. 5th – 3:30-5pm
(Possible date) Sunday, Nov. 19th – 3:30-5pm
Sunday, Dec. 3rd – 3:30 til ??
PERFORMANCE: Sunday morning, Dec. 10th – both worship services
FYI – beginning this Wed evening, Oct. 18th, we will have a uniformed Lubbock Police Officer in our Commons from 6-8pm.
This is due to repeated situations where, on Wed. evenings, church members have been approached by strangers off the street looking for various types of help. Sometimes these strangers are nice, but not always. And a male is not always near by when this happens. Further, in light of recent shootings in churches throughout our nation, wisdom dictates we err on the side of caution.
When I was Youth Pastor at Southcrest we employed a uniformed officer to be on site every Wed. evening for the same reasons.
Employing an officer is like insurance – you hope you never need it, but when you do – you’re so very grateful you have it.
Due to a Business Meeting on the 25th (see below), and in light of the fast-approaching Halloween holiday, I am postponing our next biblical study series (a systematic study of the book of Revelation) and addressing a topic with which millions of people are fascinated, especially this time of year: Paranormal Activity.
This Wed. evening, Oct. 18th, join me in the Worship Center at 6:30 as we dive deep into the Scriptures and see what God has to say about the metaphysical dimension, addressing questions such as:
- Are ghosts real?
- Can our loved ones communicate with us from the dead?
- What is a biblical response should I ever encounter paranormal activity?
The Bible has much to say on this topic. But, most people (sadly, including Christians) form their opinions from Hollywood scripts rather than the Bible.
See you Wednesday, Nick
This is an outstanding – and simple – way to “be Jesus” to others. We have 96 shoe-sized plastic boxes available in our Commons. Pick one up, fill it up, and return it by the due date of Sunday, Nov 5th!
Sunday, Oct. 29th, is our first semi-annual Special Offering for our Building Program. Twice a year, once in the Fall and again in the Spring, we will allow people, who feel led, to give over and beyond their tithe to the building of our additional 16,000 sq. ft. of Biblical education space.
There will not be two different “passings of the plate” on the 29th. But rather, a one-time “as usual” offering letting the people know that, if they desire, they can place an additional offering in the plate to go toward the Special Offering.
Wed. evening, Oct. 25th, we will have our regularly scheduled Church Family Business Meeting. However, in addition to “business as usual”, presentations will be made by our Personnel Team and Deacons. You need to be there. If you’re not there – and you find out later what was said – you’ll regret you missed it.
The local Body of Christ known as Bacon Heights Baptist Church began assembling together in 1967. On November 12th, we will, both, commemorate and celebrate what Christ has done, and continues to do. We will have one worship service that morning at 10:30. No SUMMIT Groups. Due to expected crowds, overflow areas will be set up. Following the worship service, a “come & go” reception will take place in the Commons from 1-3pm.
