Over the summer, our wonderful Bible Life teachers will have a few Sundays where they will be out of town for vacation. Would you consider spending 1 Sunday in Children's Ministry as a substitute? We would love to have you and if you want to bring a friend to serve with you... the more the merrier :) Email me (ethan@hayshills.com) if you are interested.

Register today!

Children's News
by Ethan Graves

Is there anyone in your life who has been an important part of your spiritual growth? I know I can name more than one, but Mrs. Judy comes to mind as one in particular. She helped teach me at church when I was a boy. Her love for Jesus and us kids was so big not even Texas could hold it all. 

Here at HHBC, we have lots of opportunities for you to be like Mrs. Judy in the life of our kids. You could 

- Work as a childcare worker in our 2-year-old class on Sunday am  (contact Sandra McDonald  sandra@hayshills.com  for more info)

- Teach or sub in Bible Life for our Elementary kids 

- Work in AWANA in the fall as an administrative assistant, teacher, or a handbook leader

If you would like to talk about joining what the Lord is doing in HHCM please let me know ( ethan@hayshills.com).

Discipleship and Education
by David Sweet

One of our regular attenders, Jewell Dewberry, held a garage sale at her home last Saturday to help raise funds so that Carpenter's Helpers team can help more single moms and needy senior adults with home projects.  Thanks Jewell!  This team usually meets the last Saturday morning of the month for breakfast.  Contact Terry Parker for more info:  trtp@swbell.net

Men's and Women's Bible Studies do not meet tonight, but will meet next Wednesday, June 12 at 6:45 in Bldg. E.  Thanks adult Bible Life classes who have adopted a Wednesday night this summer to help with the kids as they study the parables of Jesus (in Bldg. A).  We need more classes to take Wednesdays in July!

Coming this fall to our Sunday afternoons:  August 18-September 22 "How We Got the Bible" This is a video-based course which is fast-moving and interesting.  Also October 6-November 10 "The Major Cults" led by Bill and Kathy Waller.  A study of the cults will sharpen your own theology! 

We welcome new members to our Restore & Rebuild Team (Transitional housing for single moms)  We will meet this Sunday, June 9 at 5 PM in Bldg. E.  Come hear the latest and help us make decisions that will most benefit these families and glorify Christ!

Pool-table tourney-party this Sunday, June 9, for College & Career, 7 PM at Swann's house: 106 Stageline Dr. Kyle.

From Pastor Aaron

I want you to pray that we'll pray. I know that may come across as a bit odd, but I want to ask you to pray that we'll pray.

I'm devoting the summer and fall to studying how to better encourage and lead our church to pray together. Lord willing, January 2020, we'll begin the year with an emphasis on prayer.

So I want to ask that you'd pray for my time of study and preparation over the next six months: for the Lord to give me wisdom and insight, for the Lord to strengthen my prayer life, and for the Lord to prepare sermons within my soul that will encourage our church to make praying together a priority.

I want to ask that you'd pray for the Spirit to prepare us a people: to create in us a desire for prayer, to create in us a willingness to set aside time for prayer, and to create in us a confidence that prayer changes things.

My reading list for the remainder of the year includes the following books, but I'd also love any suggestions you might have:

E.M. Bounds - Collected Works on Prayer
D.A. Carson - Praying with Paul
Bryan Chappell - Praying Backwards
Matthew Henry - A Method for Prayer
Timothy Keller - Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God
Paul Miller - A Praying Life
John Onwucheka - Prayer
Richard Pratt - Pray With Your Eyes Open
R.C. Sproul - Does Prayer Change Things?
A.W. Tozer - Prayer: Communing with God in Everything

Would you please pray that we'll pray?
