William Butler Yeats, 19th-century poet and dramatist, said, “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” I realize that the original context of that statement is different than how I’m using it today, but I think Yeats’s statement could apply to our student ministry!
On August 6, our students transitioned their Wednesday evening activities to the Family Life Center for “ENCOUNTER”…and more than doubled (nearly tripled) attendance with 172 participating! This past Wednesday night our students and leaders blew the roof off with more than 235 in attendance!
Michael McDaniel is not just filling pails as he leads our students; he’s lighting fires. And I’m thrilled to tell you that he is bringing the Word in all three services this morning. I understand that Andrea has written him a great sermon and…I’m kidding! Seriously, you are going to love Bro. Michael’s authentic, plain-spoken style. And I trust that you will bless him today with your undivided attention as the Lord speaks through His servant.
If you would like to interact with Bro. Michael’s sermon using your smartphone or mobile device, you can do so by typing into your web browser or by scanning the QR code nearby.
If you’re a guest with us today, we welcome you to Hilldale Baptist Church! Whether this is your first time or your first time in a long time, will you be so kind as to complete the guest registration slip to the right and drop it in the offering receptacle in just a little while? Thank you ahead of time for blessing us in that way.
I hope you know that God loves you…and so do I!



Bro. Larry
