Strong day at HGBC yesterday. Pastor preached a powerful word out of Ephesians 2:8-9.

We learned these truths:

God makes the purchase

God sets the agenda

God takes the initiative

God does the work of salvation


We also celebrated with several who have finished our Discover HG class and were baptized. It is a great testimony to the work of the Lord and their obedience.

I love being a part of these services.


Here’s the set list from yesterday:

God of our salvation-Whickam


Rock of ages-Crowder

All I have is Christ-Sovereign Grace Music

Man of sorrows-Hillsong


After a full morning of great services, we ended the day with a Night of Prayer at our Main campus. We dedicated the evening to worshipping the Lord through song and prayer. There were prayers for the world, our country, our leaders, our Pastor and his family, our pastoral staff and various leaders at the church, and our congregation. It was great to see them gather in small groups and voice their prayers out loud. I am thankful for what God is doing at Hickory Grove!

Great day on Sunday!

Pastor preached out of John 8.

Powerful message on how we can learn to handle opposition as Christ did and also learn the intensity of being a believer.

Here’s the set list:


Jesus Reigns-Northpoint

Let creation sing-Hillsong

Jesus paid it all-Stanfill

I wonder-Leeland

For the sake of the world-Johnson

Your great name-Grant









I’m the kind of guy that only likes certain kinds of music at certain times of the year. For instance, Christmas music should only be played in December. That makes everything right with the world. Also, I do not like listening to secular Christmas music. Call me a grinch, I’ve heard it all my life. I don’t get into songs about mistletoe or trees or anything like that. Resisting the urge to Jesus Juke here, I like songs about Christ’s birth only at Christmas time.

Well, I broke my own rule yesterday. Hillsong has a new Christmas album out and I really like it.  I was listening to it on Spotify yesterday. By the way, if you don’t Spotify, go here now… It is called, “We have a Savior”. It’s very rootsy and different from the plethora of Hillsong albums. Check it out and tell me what you think. Now that I have listened to it, I’ll delete it from my playlist until December…gotta keep it real…
