Dear Faith Family,

Lottie Moon was sent as a Southern Baptist missionary to China from 1873 to 1912.  She saw firsthand the world’s greatest problem - LOSTNESS. Meeting so many people who had never heard the gospel compelled her to write letters to American churches describing the need for greater missionary presence. 

She pleaded for increased prayer and financial support to send and sustain more missionaries.  This challenge became known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. 

Every year, Southern Baptist churches collect an offering to send and support missionaries to be steadfastly present among those who have never heard the gospel.  In 2021, Southern Baptist supported over 3,600 missionaries and planted almost 23,000 churches on international soil.  There were almost 593,000 people who heard the Gospel and 177,000 new believers.

There are several ways that you can join us in supporting the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.  First, you can designate a gift in any amount by indicating the amount on the memo of your contribution.  100% of your gifts to Lottie Moon enable gospel transformation among the unreached!  Second, you can use the Lottie Moon Mailboxes in the foyer of the Worship Center.  Instead of mailing Christmas cards to church members, just put them in the Lottie Moon Mailbox and donate any postage to Lottie Moon.  Finally, you can join us in praying for Southern Baptist Missionaries by clicking this link to the Week of Prayer.

Advent, meaning coming, is a season of reflecting on and anticipating the birth of Jesus and his second coming.  Use the link below to download a family advent guide which includes a weekly devotion exploring the themes of peace, joy, hope, and love.  Family discussion questions and a nativity craft are also included.  Copies will also be available in the children’s building.  click here for children's family advent

May these resources deepen your longing for the coming of Jesus.

“The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.  We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

Church Trustee Needed

Hewitt First Baptist Church is in need of a third church Trustee. This Trustee will serve for a three year term. This Trustee will again be able to be re-elected for another three year term.

This trustee will be selected by the entire church membership by a vote taken during a regular or called church business meeting. Candidates for this vote can be nominated by any First Baptist Hewitt Church member. These candidates will be placed on the ballot along with a candidate selected by the church Deacon Body. All church members will be considered by the Deacons for their final recommendation of the person to also be placed on the ballot. The nominee receiving the greatest number of votes will be declared a duly elected Trustee. That person will begin serving the three year term on the day of election. Thus the by-laws requirement of three trustees will be satisfied.
