A gift from the Twickenham Church of Christ in Huntsville, Alabama
The Canoe Church of Christ provided this 2010 van.
These much needed vehicles are only two examples how God continues to provide every need as we serve our community and church members. By God’s grace we are able to provide good, nutritious meals to about 400 hungry families each week. We have dozens and dozens of children each week at Sunday school who are fed both physically and spiritually.
We can ask for no more than to be used by God to love our people in Jesus name and invite them to follow him. Come for a visit and see what we are all about. We are an authentic community of “faith followers” of Jesus loving God, loving each other, and loving our neighbors in tangible ways.
Please pray for us that we will be a light to those in darkness, give hope to those in despair, and make much of Jesus to a community who desperately needs him.
Bandina Christian Camp
The El Campo church of Christ in El Campo, Texas provided scholarships for 22 campers from our church. Thy were accompanied by Billy Spaulding, summer intern Youth Minister Nolan Miller, Daphne German, and Rita Bruno.
Camp was very special, tons of fun, great singing, great food, and wonderful Bible teaching. Seven young campers from Hemley Road church were baptized this past week! Our joy is running over! Youth and adults are already excited about going again next year.
A special “Thank You” to Fred Franke and Project Nehemiah for making it possible to have a second van for the long trip to south Texas. Brother Fred has been a friend and partner of Hemley Road since our inception. We love you brother Fred!
Summer Youth Minister
We are all excited and blessed to have Nolan Miller with us for the summer to teach, encourage, and be an example to our youth. Nolan is an extremely talented young man and we expect God to do amazing things as Nolan loves our kids this summer.
Nolan comes to us from the Cumberland City church of Christ all the way from Tennessee. “Welcome to the family Nolan!”
Some Surprise Gifts!
We continue to be amazed at the many ways God faithfully provides our needs. Our forever family at the University church in Shreveport recently gave our church a nice big Ford van! What a blessing! They also were very generous in helping us financially.
Come See What God Is Doing
Please come for a visit and see first hand what God is doing in Bayou La Batre. We love hosting visitors! We promise to love you with the love of Jesus and to invite you to walk along with us as we follow Him. God is so kind to us all, let us give all we are to him!
