Harbour Lake Baptist Church

Dear HLBC Family,
 
Just a short note to remind you of a couple of things.
 
First: Our annual Israel Revival is quickly approaching. The dates for the revival will be October 8th through October 13th. We will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday October 8th and Monday through Friday, we’ll begin at 7:00 p.m. Please see our website (www.hlbconline.org) and Facebook page for the nightly lineup of preachers. There will be much singing and praise and worship before the nightly messages as all of our churches work together. Again, this year, Pastor Afif Saba, of the Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Nazareth, Israel, will be with us for every night of the revival. He will be speaking nightly (not preaching), updating us on what’s happening in the Good Shepherd Baptist Church. I always look forward to hearing about the miracles that God is performing in their midst. We are eternally blessed to have the opportunity to participate in what God is doing in Israel among the Arab speaking people. I’m still amazed at how God has used 5 small churches to do the monumental work He’s doing through Afif and the church there. May God be glorified!!!
 
Second: there will be two prayer meetings to include all of our churches prior to the start of the revival. The first prayer meeting will be on September 21st at 7:00 p.m. at Northbridge Baptist Church at 1160 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. Charleston SC 29407. Then on October 5th, we will gather again at Tall Pines Baptist Church at 7:00 p.m. at 645 Treeland Dr, Ladson S.C. 29456. I want to encourage you with every fiber of my being to attend these prayer services. Things happen when God’s people gather to pray. The adverse of that is unfortunately true as well. As Dr. Charles Stanley has rightfully said, “Nothing of eternal significance will ever happen apart from prayer.” I hope and pray that you will do all you can to make these dates a priority. I will be praying that God will enable you to place these dates and times on your calendar.
 
Third: because we had to postpone our last Experiencing God session, that means that instead of finishing on October 1st, we will extend the last class to October 15th, (remember, the revival starts on the 8th so that night is out). This coming Sunday night, September 17th will be what you studied for last weekend. We will just continue on as usual. Please plan to be in your group this weekend. Let’s not stop the forward progress that I know we’ve all made in our relationship to Christ through the Experiencing God study. If you’ve gotten behind, please ask God to help you get caught up and back on schedule. Facilitators, please touch base with all your students and remind them as well as encourage them to be in attendance this weekend.
 
Finally, just another reminder that Miss Betty Shieder is still in search of a temporary place to stay. She will need to be in a new place by October 1st. If you can help in any way please call Teressa or Ira and let them know at 843-797-2982. Miss Betty is on a waiting list at the Collins Park Apartments, but she’s unsure how long it will be before there is an opening for her.
 

Until All The Nets Are Full,

Pastor Jimmy Fuller
