Take It With You 09.15.19

Explore and Inspire Scofield’s commentary suggests two marks of false teachers: “(a) erroneous doctrine concerning Christ’s Person; (b) erroneous attitude toward the world”.  To assume that everything we hear or read about God is ‘true’  can open our hearts and minds to false teaching. Those who have a world viewpoint can sometimes use God and […]

Explore and Inspire PARENTAL NOTE: The subject matter for today’s TIWY is kind of heavy. My daughter and I were on our way to school the other day, and in the first two minutes of our ride, listening to NPR, we heard three stories: one referencing last week’s mass shooting in Odessa, TX, one of […]

Explore and Inspire I love inviting people to Snyder. I’m on the faculty at a Christian school here in Fayetteville, and when we get new families moving in, I always invite them to worship with us.  I send them notes with links to our church website, children’s programs, and other items of interest. Inevitably, the […]

I knew the call was coming. It just came sooner than I expected. We were out of town with family for Labor Day. When the name showed up on my phone with an incoming call, I had to step away from the crowd to take it. It was Barbara Helton calling to let me know […]

Our Sunday School class has been studying I Peter the last month or so. As we continue to “READ” through the Bible in 2019, this book will be your reading assignment. Let me make your day…. it’s only 5 chapters! You’ll find Peter’s words to be challenging as he implores us to live holy lives. […]

Explore and Inspire Imposter syndrome is real! What do I mean by that?  Have you ever had to do something new – fill a job role, step into a new position, or take on a new responsibility-and felt woefully unqualified?  That often leads to imposter syndrome – this feeling that you are not really qualified […]

Pastor’s Perspective 8-20-19

On Sunday, October 6, Snyder Memorial Baptist Church will celebrate its 70th Anniversary. It’s hard to believe I’ve been here for 16 of those years – Oh! This is Giles, by the way. In those 16 years I have worked alongside talented and Godly ministers and stood in the legacy of those who preceded me. […]

Explore and Inspire After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son so He can give glory back to You. For You have given Him authority over everyone. He gives eternal life to each one You have given Him. And this is the way […]
