Third Sunday Covered Dish Fellowship
Join us after the services – bring a dish to share with the group…
A couple of years ago, we decided it would be nice to celebrate Thanksgiving with our church family. During that same year, we adopted a Hispanic church to be a part of our church family. Within that Hispanic church, there were many countries represented, from Honduras to Guatemala to Puerto Rico and even Cuba, and many others. So, we decided to make our Thanksgiving celebration an international dinner, celebrating the different cultures that are part of our church and a part of our great United States. It has been a wonderful time of thanksgiving and celebration. This year, our celebration will be on November 14th at 6:30 pm. Please come and celebrate our great country that is represented by so many different countries. We would love to have you with us.
Offices will be closed Thursday and Friday.
Laurel Hill Baptist Church invites all to hear a presentation given by Jews for Jesus on Sunday, December 2nd – at 6:00 PM. The topic will be “Hanukkah Message”.
Jews for Jesus is an agency that proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world. The late Moishe Rosen, a Jew who has believed in Jesus for over 35 years, founded the organization. However, Dr. Rosen was quick to point out that he did not “start” Jews for Jesus. “Jews for Jesus began about 2,000 years ago, around 32 C.E., give or take a year. Jesus’ first disciples were Jewish, and there have been some Jewish people who have believed in him ever since.”
The organization has permanent branches in eight North American cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Washington D.C. and Fort Lauderdale) as well as over 127 volunteer chapters spanning some 41 states and five countries. The group’s international branches are headquartered in Johannesburg, London, Paris, Odessa, Moscow, Essen, Rio de Janeiro, Kharkov, Dnepopretrovsk, and Tel Aviv.
To the Jews for Jesus, believing in Jesus makes sense in light of the Jewish Bible and in light of their
experiences as “believers.” For those who argue that Christianity contradicts the meaning of Judaism, the Jews for Jesus say there are answers, which their representative will be happy to discuss after the presentation.
David Liebman is a missionary at the Washington, D.C. branch of Jews for Jesus. David received his theological training at Phoenix Seminary. He and his wife, Rachel, have both helped lead a short-term missions program, Massah, in Israel and India. They have one son, Micah.

A PRAYER OF THANKS
“Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross. And thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my Savior. Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live for You. Amen”
May this day be a day of joy, warmth and celebration in knowing that our Savior has been born, died and was resurrected to save us.
