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.

Come see us this Sunday; let's worship Him together.        ~Pastor Johnny D. Taylor

Change of Plans: SERVICES CANCELLED TOMORROW

OK, change of plans. Services CANCELLED for tomorrow. Too many streets, driveways and sidewalks with ice and snow on them, and more will re-freeze tonight. Everyone stay safe. Sorry for the mixup. ~Bro. Johnny
**************************************

Thank You Bro. Eugene!

Thanks to Bro. Eugene for clearing the snow at the Church. He's been at it for hours.


Benefits of Snow

Historic amounts of snow fell in Arkansas in Feb, 2021. And although snowfall brings many problems, it also serves many purposes for good, designed by our loving Almighty Heavenly Creator. Here are a few benefits of snow.
God bless,

HBC Church Update 2-11-21

God is good. Our ice storm was pretty mild here; we never lost power. All our buildings are fine and most of the ice is gone as of this writing (11 AM). The office is closed today but we plan to have it open tomorrow.
Also the girls are still planning the retreat at Siloam. They are very well connected with the Camp and conditions there, are monitoring constantly, and are trusting the Lord to give them a safe and blessed weekend. Please add your prayers to theirs.
Please stay safe and check on one another.
See ya Sunday (live or online)! God Bless, ~Bro. Johnny

HBC Church Update 2-5-21

HBC Update 2-5-21

 

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven   (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

 

Today is officially “the middle of winter”, the halfway point between winter solstice and spring equinox. And while we can still have plenty of cold and bad weather over the next month and a half, it’s good to be reminded that seasons come and seasons go. It’s just a matter of time before everything changes. We are not stuck in our current circumstances.

            And after a year of “hunkering down” we can find ourselves in a “midwinter” state of mind. On the one hand the “new normal” is not so new anymore. We’ve adapted to a lot of change, found our new rhythms, and life goes plodding on. We can sometimes wonder is things have ever been any different.

            But on the other hand we actually desire even more change. There are a lot of personal freedoms and opportunities that we still miss and long for the day of their return: times of safe gatherings, public events, to see the faces of our friends without masks, hugs, handshakes, visible smiles and loud singing and cheering to name a few.

            But not yet. It’s still “mid-winter” for both weather and life’s circumstances.

            So while we wait, while we yearn for more freedom and fun, let’s not fall into the trap of being so occupied with what we can’t do that we lose sight of what we can most definitely do.

            Here is a short list, in the context of the Church, that we can still for one another.

            We can still: Pray, care or others, worship, stay connected with others, encourage, appreciate, seek revival, study and grow, hold onto faith, hope, and love, and be good disciples of Christ. We can still live out the three purposes of a Christian in many ways: Love God, Value others, and Improve ourselves.

            Now I’m with you; I don’t like cold weather, and I look forward to hopefully getting back to some of the “old normal”. But if seasons are constantly changing, I can’t afford to wait on the right circumstances to occur before I live my life. Time is too short and life is too precious. I’ve got to see every day as “normal” for that day, filled with both obstacles and opportunities, and make the most of it.

            I hope you will too.

            God Bless,

            ~Bro. Johnny

 

“This is the day which the LORD hath made. we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

Foundations FAITH

One of the foundations of our Christian faith is our FAITH. Here are the three steps of faith, what genuine faith is and is not, and God's purpose in making us into people of faith.

Foundations: Prayer

The single most important activity for a Christian is prayer. It is the basis and support for our all-important relationship with the Lord God. Otherwise the single most common and effective temptation wins: we avoid God. Here's how that plays out in your daily life. God Bless, ~Bro. Johnny

Foundations: The Word of God

The foundation of our Christian faith is the Bible, Word of God. It is our ultimate authority, has power to change our lives, and is the daily bread of our souls. Here is how the Holy Spirit uses the Word to teach, encourage, protect, and develop us in our daily lives. God bless, ~Bro. Johnny

HBC Church Update 1-14-21

HBC Update 1-14-21

 

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,  (1 Timothy 2:1-3)

 

Like every other time in American history our country desperately needs our prayers. The Scripture above tells us clearly that the will of Almighty God is for us to live a quiet and peaceable life, and we can have that through answered prayer on behalf of our civil leaders. So for these next few weeks especially will you make prayer for our country a priority? God bless you as you follow His will. ~Bro. Johnny

 

One of our beloved Church Family attended worship last Sunday, was tested for COVID-19 on Tuesday and found to be positive on Thursday. Fortunately, they wore their mask the entire time and sat with family members only during worship.

            This underscores again the importance of following our simple but effective protocols.           While the vaccine is becoming available, we must all do due diligence in common sense protection.

  • Wear face coverings
  • Watch your distance, sitting apart from others except household members
  • Wash and sanitize hands often

            And if you feel uncomfortable attending Church in person, feel free to join us online and have “Home Church”.

 

THANK YOU for your generous love offering for our church Employees. It is greatly appreciated.

 

Altar call at invitation time is open again. We praise God for the salvation of s young soul Sunday before last! Many need to be able to pray at the altar, some need to be able to join the Church, and some need to respond to the Lord’s call to salvation. Keep praying for your Church! (This is all easier now that I’ve discovered I can wear a mask over my ear microphone! Who knew?)

 

Last Sunday we observed the Lord’s Supper in both services and it was a true blessing. A special Thank You to the Deacons and ladies who prepared and oversaw this beautiful Church Ordinance.

 

Last Sunday’s numbers were as follows:

Early service (8:45) –44

Late service (11:00) –64

Total – 108

Wednesday Nite Kids/Teens (1-13-21) – Kids 30; Workers 10.

Total Offering -- $5,346.00

 

Whether you are able to attend worship personally or not, please remember this is still your Church hone and family. If you have any needs or prayer concerns please let us know. We love you and want you to do well.

Remember also the Seven Activities of a good Church Member. We’ve had to adapt them but they still stand.

  • Daily Quiet Time with the Lord for personal worship, prayer, and Bible
  • Attend Worship, whether in person or online
  • Small Group involvement. Stay connected with a handful of your fellow church members for fellowship and mutual support
  • Serve the Lord through your Church. Use your gifts, opportunities, and prayers to minister to others
  • Give of your Tithes, Offerings, and time. Ministry, expenses, and missions must go on
  • Bring others, either to worship, into your Christian fellowship circles, or most importantly, bring them to Christ
  • Live a holy, Christ-honoring, Church-honoring life

 

And finally, beware of being obsessed with the temporary troubles of this life. Rather, be obsessed with the eternal blessings of our great God and Savior the Lord Jesus Christ.

God Bless you my Church Family of Friends

~Bro. Johnny

Foundations The Gospel of Christ

First in our "Foundations" series, the Gospel of Christ is the foundation on which the rest of our Christianity rests. There is nothing more basic... or necessary... that being certain of the salvation of your soul. Here is the "what, why, and how". It is important to our understanding to have simple definitions of our "churchy" terms. What do we mean by "saved", "grace", and "faith"?

Christmas, The Real Story: Mary

Christmas, The Real Story: Mary

December 27, 2020

Mary was a most remarkable young lady full of wisdom and faith. She stands as an example of what it means to trust in the Lord God with all your heart and to yield completely to His Divine will. With maturity far beyond her years she could face a life of great challenges and pray without reservation that the Lord have His will... no matter what.

God Bless,

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. (Luke 2:10-14)

Christmas, The Real Story: The Manger

The real story of Christmas as you've probably never heard it. Those weren't ordinary shepherds the angel spoke to, and that was no ordinary manger, but it was THE manger that became a crib for the Lamb of God. Also how Mary ended up there. God bless, and Merry Christmas ~Bro. Johnny

The Christmas Season is here, and though we’re in the midst of a worsening pandemic the Christmas message still rings clear:

 

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. ~Luke 2:10-14

 

 

Last Sunday we said goodbye to our beloved sister, Mildred Chavis. We’ll miss her sweet smile.

 

Our sympathy and prayers go out to Sister Jeanne Caldwell for the loss of her son Phillip. Please remember the family. Here is the link to the obituary page. https://memorials.fullerhalesouth.com/phillip-caldwell/4454732/index.php

 

 

LOVE OFFERING: We love and appreciate our Church employees for all they do for us throughout the year, and we’d like to display that with a love offering. We’ll take up a special offering for them over the next three Sundays. Please be generous as the Lord leads. Envelopes are in the Bulletins. (Make checks payable to Hardin Baptist Church. Donations will be equally divided among the four employees). You can also donate online through the Church website and by mail.

Church Employees are: Secretary Lisa Silvey, Worship Leader Mark Estes, Custodian Eugene Sullivan, and FLC Custodian Dennie Lawson.

 

Wednesday Night Kids’ Christmas party is this Wednesday at 6:30

 

Our stage remodel has been postponed until next year

 

Please remember our folks in prayer. We have a lot of seriously ill in our Church Family and they sincerely desire and need our prayers. Remember that as COVID-19 causes much sickness and misery, that’s on top of all that usually goes on anyway. It has become much more complicated to deal with surgeries, heart problems, breathing issues, chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes to name a few.

We MUST do our part and lift them up in prayer to the Great Physician.

 

You can find our Prayer List on the website under the “Members Only” tab. If you don’t remember your password call Lisa at the Church Office during regular hours.

 

And finally, here’s a line from an old favorite hymn.

“Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come. ‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.” (Amazing Grace)

 

God Bless

Bro. Johnny

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

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

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

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

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.

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

HBC Church Update 10-8-20

HBC Update 10-8-20

 

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.

 

This Sunday we will begin 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

Bro. Gene Stewart faithfully served the Lord and Hardin Baptist Church as a Deacon. At close of the 11:00 service this Sunday we will honor him and his service with the presentation of a memorial plaque to his family. Presentation made by Bro. Ronnie Palmer.

 

For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 3:13)

If the Lord is leading you to join the Church, accept Jesus Christ as Savior, or other needs, please contact Bro. Johnny. He would love to talk to you about it.

Adult SS classes: You may now meet if you desire. Please observe social distancing and masks. You may meet anytime, not just at 10:00 on Sunday morning, and you may choose a large enough place to meet that will allow for social distancing such as FLC, Library, or Fellowship Hall. Just contact the Office and reserve the area so we’ll know to clean it before and after. (no coffee pots or snacks please except what you bring for your own personal use.)

 

Anyone who wants a current or future Sunday School Quarterly please contact the Church Office.
