I bring you greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is with pleasure that I share a heart felt welcome to each one of you as we the Spring Hill Baptist Church Family share our Dedication service with you. I would like to thank each one of you for being a part of our special day.
The Old testament warrior Joshua stated so eloquently in Joshua 24:15 "And if it seem evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
We have taken up the mantle here at Spring Hill Baptist Church that we will serve the LORD our GOD, and to this purpose we have chosen to add to the edifice that was here and to improve this House of Prayer. We have decided like Nehemiah that we are doing a good work and cannot come down off the wall until the job is completed. You are here today to help us celebrate a job well done. GOD has truly been good to me, who would have thought eighteen years ago that we would be enjoying Sunday school classrooms, a choir room, choir stand, handicap accessible restrooms, a computer lab, and not to mention a brand new Pastor's study. GOD is truly wonderful and those are just some of the things HE has done. I could mention the Pavilion and toddlers play area, the basketball court or the church van. I encourage each of you to take a look around and behold the beauty of the Lord in this place.
I thank GOD for the opportunity to serve you as Pastor and to be a part of this grand under taking. There was some faithful visionaries who started this renovation project with us, but were called from their labor to rest before the completion of this project, and we celebrate their spirit here today also. We know that they are in that cloud of witness looking down from Heaven.
We can truly accomplish more together.
