July Preaching Series 2021

This Sunday we begin our second annual July Preaching Series. Each Sunday in July, we will host a special guest who will deliver the sermon in our 10:00 am gathering. There are several reasons I’m excited about this preaching series, but the primary reason is that it allows us to hear the same gospel from faithful voices outside of High Pointe. I hope and pray you will be encouraged.

Who is coming?

How can you participate in this series?

Please join us in praying for the guest preachers to preach the Word with faithfulness and conviction. Pray for their families and churches while they are away. And pray for us that we would hear the Word and be faithful to obey.

Be sure to make every effort to be with us each Sunday in July that you’re in town. I am sure you will be blessed.

As always, continue to welcome all our guests. Not only will we have guest preachers in July, but already we are seeing LOTS of visitors in our morning services. This is a time when families moving into town are looking to find a home church. Continue to make all our guests feel welcome at High Pointe.

Pastor Juan
