Exciting Times

by Justin Morton

Have you noticed? Right now is a very exciting time for us at Walter Hill! So many wonderful things are taking place, bringing about great excitement. I want to highlight just a few of these exciting things.

This morning, at the close of our service, our shepherds will officially install and welcome Charlie Davidson, Dan Holt and Jordan Pack as the newest additions to our deacons. Each of these men are well qualified (I Tim. 3:8-13) and have wonderful family support. While all three have already started working in their respected areas of service, we cannot wait to see all the good that comes from their work for the Lord and His Kingdom.

Over the last couple of months, we have had several new individuals and families place membership. We are extremely excited to be working with these families for the glory of God. And then there is our Bible classes. Last Sunday night we had 182 people present to study God’s Word. Were you one of them? If not, why not? Make plans to be here tonight and again on Wednesday evening. Our teens just had 39 in their Wednesday night Bible class last week! And we can’t forget about our children’s classes. Many of our children are learning new Bible verses every week, and each of us has an opportunity to join them in memorizing God’s Word.

Walter Hill is experiencing exciting times; however, we cannot become complacent with where we are. Let’s keep striving to excel, not because of the attendance numbers we put on the back board, but because we want to know God and bring glory and honor to Him (Col. 3:23).
