Free Greek Class in Person County

There will be an exciting opportunity to learn to read your New Testament in Greek! Dr. David Black, Professor of New Testament and Greek at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, will be offering a course at Bethel Hill Baptist Church. It is entitled “Greek For Dummies”. This is open to anyone over the age of 10. The class will begin in mid-January at Bethel Hill and meet weekly on either Monday or Thursday night from 7-9PM (no later than 9). You don’t need any foreign language experience, or even a high school diploma! There is no fee for this course! The only thing you have to purchase is Dr. Black’s textbook, “Learn to Read New Testament Greek” You can get that on for about $15 used. The course will last 8-9 months (taking some weeks off). By the completion of the course you will be able to read and translate your Greek New Testament! This is open to anyone who is interested. Homeschoolers are welcome. Pastors are welcome. Church members are welcome. Unbelievers are welcome too!

If you are interested (no commitment needs to be made right now) please email Jon Glass at by December 30th. Also, let me know if you prefer Monday or Thursday evening.

Volunteer Announcement #5

Dearest Volunteers,

You might not have the ability to view videos because not all of us are blessed with highspeed internet service.

I'll be managing Ye Olde Warehouse this weekend, so I am pumped about a chance to serve students and to serve you and with any of you who feel the Lord sending you this way.

Speaking of that, only come because God is indeed sending you. Now, wait, that's not me being a meany, that's just my way of saying it is not my intention that anyone be guilted into serving. It should be an act of joy provoked by the Spirit of God. Know what I mean?

So, the gist of this video is a begging of servants to come out to serve this Saturday night, November 15 from 4:00 PM - 10:00 PM or in one of the partial night windows, meaning from 4:00-7:00 PM or 7:00-10:00 PM.

We think we'll have a decent group of volunteers on Friday night, but the more the merrier there as well.

Also, it's stated in the video that I love it when people come up with ministry ideas that they can bring to the table. We can do all sorts of sports related things or even craft-related ideas.

I really want all of us to own the ministry, so the more ideas that are generated by the church teams or by individual volunteers the better we are.

BE CAREFUL: IF YOU COME UP WITH AN IDEA IT SHOULD BE AN "I THINK, SO I WILL" type of idea, not simply a "I THINK, SO Y'ALL SHOULD" type of idea. I can be an "I THINK, SO I NEED" or an "I THINK, SO WE SHOULD" type of idea too.

I love to hear from you all!

Love in Christ,
Romans 12:1-2

Mumble Gets and Quits a Job

Election Results, Part 1


It would utter foolishness to let your hearts be troubled this morning. God is immovable, unshakable and in total control. Regardless of who won, God is King, President and Unanimously Unelected LORD; HE is Sovereign and HE is the Boss.

So, rest in Christ this morning. Don't worry about the parties, revel in the Person of Christ.

Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on earth. --John Wesley
