For Everything There Is A Season

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven" - Ecclesiastes 3:1

Indeed, the words of Solomon ring true, and the time has come for me to become a pastor. I am very thankful for the past two years and the wonderful privilege that I have had to serve as your Sunday School Director. I praise God for what He has accomplished during this time, and I have no doubt that He will continue to bless the Sunday School of Highland Park First Baptist Church.

As I follow God's call to serve as the pastor of Morningside Baptist Church, I want you to know how much I love each and everyone of you, and we will truly miss you. May you continue to serve to see souls saved, lives changed, and God glorified!

Sunday School Leadership Christmas Party

As my Mom used to sing to me when I was younger, "Christmas time's a comin!" That means that everybody puts on about 20 pounds, right? Well, that may be the case, but it is truly a time that we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It also means that it's time for our annual Sunday School Leadership Christmas Party! So, mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 9th at 6:30PM in the Fellowship Hall. As we have expanded our monthly leadership meetings to include teachers from the Children and Youth Divisions, we extend this invitation to them as well! The party will be a potluck, so keep an eye on your mailboxes with more details to follow.

I wonder how many desserts we'll have this year???

First, there was SALT, and now there's PEPPER! Over the past 18 months, the SALT class (stands for Sharing And Learning Together), which is a Co-Ed Young Adults class, has nearly tripled in size. Because of the amazing growth of SALT, we are growing a new class, and on Sunday, September 7th, PEPPER will be born!

PEPPER stands for People Enjoying, Pursuing, and Proclaiming the Everlasting Redeemer. Long name, so we'll just call it PEPPER! PEPPER will be taught by Jonathan Bennett who formerly taught the College & Career class. Here's the other pertinent info:

Teacher: Jonathan Bennett
Ages: Co-ed Young Adults, 18+
Location: Room 211

Please pray for both the SALT and PEPPER classes (as well as all of our classes) as we begin this new year of Sunday School ministry at Highland Park First Baptist Church!
