Welcome 

Welcome!   Hardin Baptist is a multigenerational, SBC Church that is growing, friendly, and excited about what God is doing in our Church.

The Church in short: Average attendance for worship is around 160, with a great Nursery and Children's Church.

Worship is a blend of mostly hymns with some contemporary music, and some great soloists.

Classes (including nursery) for all ages at every service. (see schedule on left)

Located about 3 miles west of White Hall on Highway 270 (Sheridan Highway).

We love the Lord Jesus, one another, and would love to include you in our circle of family and friends.

Thankfulness is the pathway to happiness, especially when it is expressed directly to our Heavenly Father, the giver of all good things.

He has blessed us with so much to be thankful for, and we can choose to to have a thankful heart.

HBC Church Update 11-24-20

 

Week of prayer for Lottie Moon International Missions begins this Sunday with special offering for the month of December.

In depth prayer stories are available at www.imb.org/lmco

Online giving can now be designated for Lottie Moon International Missions. Please be generous as the Lord leads. The whole world needs the Lord in these difficult days.

 

Our condolences go out to Bro. Philip Smith for the loss of his brother, Roy Lee Smith. Please pray for the family.

 

Remember to pray extra for our members in Healthcare/First Responders work. They are weary, stressed, and dealing with all the usual problems that the rest of us are, in addition to serving our community, Church,  and fellow man in this seemingly unending crisis.

Here is a list to help you in your specific prayers for them. (sincere apologies if I leave anyone out.): Shonda; Edie; Larry K.; Ashlea K.; Lisa and Keith W.; Jane; Tana; Lacey; Rebecca G; Linda C.;  Heather S.; Estee S.

 

Are you feeling isolated, separated from loved ones this holiday season? Then remember our military around the world who experience this at most holidays and special events in their lives. Thank God for their service and sacrifice.

 

Don’t forget to have “Home Church” if you are not attending services in person. It’s easy to slip into neglecting having “Church”, whether you usually attend or not, and the holiday season and crazy times make it even more difficult to be consistent. But these circumstances also make it more important to maintain regular worship times where you consciously put the Lord first in all things. Church house or your house, do not forsake “the assembling of yourselves together” (Hebrews 10:25).

 

With so much need around us we are often overwhelmed… with prayer requests!

Someone recently asked me what to do with the endless flow of prayer requests. “No wonder we’re told to pray without ceasing!, she said.

So I gave her my three step process. Here goes.

1. Pray for each one once.

2. Write down the ones that are near and dear to you so you can keep up with them and continue praying for them.

3. Delete the rest, trusting the Holy Spirit to bring them back to mind if He wants you to prayer more about it.

 

God Bless,

Bro. Johnny

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

 


Be Happy Anyway, Key #2: Prayer

The second in our series "Be Happy Anyway", God teaches us the cure for all worry and anxiety; Prayer. We also discover that His purpose in prayer is often much different than our own. Here is why the Lord commands us to "Pray without ceasing". God Bless, Bro. Johnny

HBC Church Update 11-6--20

HBC Church Update 11-6-20

 

FROM THE PASTOR: Well election day is over, but the election is still up in the air as of right now (11/6/20, 10:54 am). And no matter what the results end up being, we are all good Christian Citizens who will remember that what unites us in Christ is far greater than what divides us in earthly matters, including politics. DO NOT allow the true Enemy which is Satan to build discord and division in the Family of God. After all, you have already been elected as a representative of Kingdom of God, an Ambassador for Christ.

God bless you my dear brothers and sisters. ~Bro. Johnny

 

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” (John 13:34-35)

THERE IS STILL A LOT OF LOVE IN THE WORLD TODAY.

God’s love for people has never changed, and He has sent millions of His loving Children into our society.

Look at YOUR WORLD; not at a screen but at your own personal experiences. In this year have you personally experienced more love or more hatred toward you? Have you had more blessings or more curses? Have you interacted with more friends or more enemies? Of all the people you have encountered this year have most of them been fundamentally good folk or wicked folk?

And what about you? How much love and care have you shared this year? How much harm have you deliberately done to others? Is life really so horrible?

Don’t buy into the popular lie that our society is full of devils and our times are so bad that we’re living just short of apocalyptic tribulation. We are Christians. We are Americans. No one in history has had a better life.

With Thanksgiving approaching, let’s get an early start on keeping the Lord’s commandment -- “…in everything give thanks…”.

 

I’ll start.

I thank God for the massive outpouring of love I have received as of late from my Church Family during Pastor Appreciation Month.

I thank God for the massive outpouring of love and support I have received concerning the loss of my father.

I thank Him for my family and the Lord’s answering of prayers, for jobs all around, for people who need me, and a basically safe society to live in.

And in case I haven’t told you lately, I thank God for you.

 

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you (Philippians 1:3)

 

Now it’s your turn.

 

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things.(Philippians 4:8)

 

God Bless,

Bro. Johnny

In God We Trust: The Conscience of a Nation

The Lord Jesus has called us to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, to be a source of influence and truth. In this election year it is very important that Christians remember our hope is not in man but in God Almighty. Here is the part we are to play in the healing of society and our nation.

God bless,

Bro. Johnny

Thank You from the Taylors

Dear Church Family,

Thank You so very much for your love, support, and prayers during the recent loss of my father. Your Christian compassion and concern have been a genuine source of help and serenity to my heart throughout these days. The Lord blessed Dad with 98 years, and he served the Lord for over seven decades. I thank God for my good Christian heritage. And although we know he is in a far better place in God’s good Heaven, Mom and my family will still miss him and his gentle spirit. So please continue to hold us up in your prayers. We love you all very much and thank God for you.        

Bro. Johnny and Miss Evelyn

Mr Doyle Taylor, father of Bro Johnny Taylor, has gone home to be with his Lord.  Please keep Bro Johnny and Evelyn, his Mom, and the rest of the Taylor family in your prayers at this time.


In God We Trust: Race and Prejudice 10-18-20

In God We Trust: Race and Prejudice

In our series on current events and social issues we look at racism and racial prejudice.

And though the simple answer is that God is against it and so should the Christian be, it is a complex and far reaching issue.

Here is what racism if really about, where it comes from, and how to be aware of it.

God Bless

Johnny

We need candy for our Wednesday Night Kids and Teens. Please bring it by the Church before Wednesday, Oct 28th.

Please be in prayer for our teens as they struggle to deal with the loss of a classmate. There are questions about tragedy that are hard enough for adults to grapple with. It’s even more difficult for our kids. Remember this is on top of everything else that has turned their world upside down this year.

So love on those you care about. Give them something that is comforting and will never change no matter what happens in the world around them. Share your love, faith, and hope you have in Jesus Christ. They really need it right now.

The National Elections are upon us (Tuesday, November 3rd) and everyone has an opinion. A Church is required to be nonpartisan first before the Lord, and secondly by the IRS. In our Church we have members who strongly identify with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. And while our policy is “no politics in Church”, we are obligated before the Lord to preach and teach the truth concerning the social issues of the day.

 

Last Sunday we began a sermon series entitled “IN GOD WE TRUST”. Over the next weeks we will cover topics such as the Christian and Civil Authority, Law Enforcement and Self Defense, Abortion, Homosexuality, Climate Change, Racial Relations, and others. The Almighty has much to say in His Word about all these issues. We want you to be informed voters, and informed Disciples of Jesus Christ. Pray for us as we address these “hot buttons”. God bless you as you seek to better follow the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

There are Voter Guides in the Church foyers, provided by the Arkansas Family Council

In God We Trust: God, Government, and the Believer

How should a believer in Christ live in an unbelieving society? What should our attitude be toward civil authority? What do we owe human government as Children of God and Citizens of the Kingdom of God? And you'll be shocked at who the Bible calls "ministers of God"!

God Bless,

Johnny
