We are quite confident that the messages Tom will preach will be biblical, edifying, and will produce great good. Our aim is to serve the church and our community with messages from the Bible that promote Christ-like living. Please come hear him preach and tell others about it as well. You can help us get the word out by sharing this post on social media, please. We plan to record the messages and make them available here.
Fellowship is important to us. We do enjoy getting together for a shared meal. Great cooks always at Maple Hill. Looks like #30 is too busy eating to look at the camera.
These backpacks are loaded up and ready to help some young person get a good start at school in Marshall County, Kentucky. The folks at Maple Hill Church of Christ are generous. It is our desire to make an impact for good in our community. How thankful we are to Beth Baker for her organization of this effort. Certainly we all are praying for the young people in Marshall County to put forth great effort to learn much in the coming school year. Thankfully, Marshall County has loving, kind, and good teachers in our school system. We know that the young students will use the backpacks well and we thank the Lord that we could help. Above all, our continual prayers will rise to the Father that He will protect them and give them great success. We send these backpacks out with love from Maple Hill.
I hope this site will be one that proves to be helpful to you and one you will want to visit regularly. I’m David Lemmons, and I preach for the Maple Hill Church of Christ in Benton, KY. We will seek to post items in the category of Bible study and activities of the church. We welcome you here and hope you will tell others where they can find us. We have many files we want to present here, but we ask for your patience as we begin the process of starting a site. It will be our desire to encourage you to go back to the Bible for answers to questions and problems you confront day by day.
