THANK YOU FROM THE KNIGHT'S

Thank you Hilltop Baptist Church Family for giving me the privilege of being your Pastor for five years now. Johna and I are truly appreciative of your love and generosity.  We have already enjoyed some of our Sonic gift card. We have taken time to smell the roses, and are looking forward to cruise'n. We truly feel blessed being able to serve at Hilltop and for such a great, loving church family. We are excited for what God has planned for Hilltop in the future.

Thank you again for the great surprise!

December 25, 2014
On behalf of Hilltop Baptist Church, we would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas! We pray that you all know the TRUE reason for this day, the Birth of Jesus Christ. If there any of you out there who do not know The Lord and would like to have Jesus in your heart or have any questions on HOW to receive Jesus into your heart, please feel free to contact our Pastor or any of our Church staff... or Deacons at the Church. We would also like to say Merry Christmas to all those in the Military who are out protecting our Country, and are not able to be home with their families. May God continue to protect them, keep them safe until they come home, please be with their families and give them peace and comfort on Your Birthday Heavenly Father. Please bless and keep everyone reading this safe, and full of the Holy Spirit today and everyday. Thank you God, for giving us the Birth of Jesus on this day, and for loving US enough to send Your Only Begotten Son to die on the Cross for us and rise again on the third day so that we, Your Children, may live a wonderful life and be able to go to Heaven and be joint heirs with You, Heavenly Father, and live with You in the streets of Gold. Thank you Dear Lord for Hilltop Baptist Church, for all our staff and members, and for giving us a truly fantastic, God Loving, Bible preaching, Pastor to lead and guide us from Your Word!! May you all have a Wonderful Christmas day today and remember the True Reason for the Season, Jesus Christ. Luke 2:1-20. God Bless you all!!!

December 20, 2014

We have such a busy day coming up tomorrow, on The Lord's day. First, starting at 10 am, we have our Christmas musical which we all know will be superb!! The choir and the music director have been working very hard on this for many months now!! Then, tomorrow evening, at 6 pm, we have our Candlelight Service. This is such a beautiful way to hear the story of the Birth of our Lord from Scripture and sing praises to Him. Our offering at this service will be a designated Christmas gift to help purchase and install a vertical platform lift. We would LOVE to have everyone come and join us at Hilltop Baptist Church for these services as we celebrate The Lord's Birthday!! Isaiah 9:6

 

December 14, 2014

What a wonderful Sunday service we had yesterday! Great singing from our choir, a beautiful musical special from a terrific mother and daughter duo, and as always, Pastor Allen was on fire for The Lord with his message, "All I want for Christmas" which comes from the scriptures Luke 2:8-14. For those of you who missed yesterdays service or would just like to have a CD to enjoy anytime, please feel free to inquire about a copy with any of our Church staff. We have so many events coming up in the next couple of weeks so please keep following us on here to stay updated!! God Bless!

December 5, 2014 

It is just a few more weeks until Christmas.  Because of all of our busy schedules during this time of year, it is good to remind ourselves of the truths given us in John 3:17:  For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

 

Jesus is God’s gift to this world.  God’s desire is for Jesus to be our personal Savior and to fill our hearts and lives with His love. Christmas itself is a grand opportunity to say “thank you” to God for the gift of His precious Son.

 

Please make plans to join us for our candlelight service on Sunday night, December 21, at 6:00 p.m. in the auditorium.  We will sing Christmas carols, have special music, and read the Christmas story from scripture.  Our offering at this service will be a designated Christmas gift to help purchase and install a vertical platform lift for our Church.  We, like the wise men of old, should present our gifts to Him.  I hope you will join us for this special service.

 

Our prayer is for every family and individual to have a joyous and Merry Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year.

 

 

Merry Christmas,

 

Pastor Allen

 

 

 

Pastor Bill Knight went home to be with the Lord this morning, November 13, 2013.  Please pray for his family during this time and ask God to provide them with peace and comfort.
