TODAY Bulletin 4/13/2014


This month we want to highlight a ministry tool we don’t often think about, our Youth Bus. This ministry tool is used to carry loads of kids and luggage to various places with the purpose of sharing the name of Jesus with others. Each summer, we board this bus to journey into the mountains of Colorado, down to sunny Houston, Texas and over to Nashville, Tennessee all to deliver the gospel message of Christ. We also encourage people around town through Camp Searcy. Lads lead in Nashville sharing the talents God has given them with others. Our children are given the chance to change the world through the use of this bus. Virtually every young person in our congregation rides this bus throughout their time in the children and youth ministries.

Noel - Update


Noel posted this on Facebook:

We are home from the hospital!!!

This is my first post since last weekend. As most of you heard, I suffered a MI heart attack in Austin, TX on Friday, March 28. On Sunday, I went into cardiac arrest in the afternoon, and was taken by ambulance to Arkansas Heart Hospital. On Wednesday, April 2, I had triple bypass surgery. I could not have been in a better place. Everyone at AHH was extremely kind, caring and gifted.

It would be impossible to respond to all the Facebook messages and comments my family has received. So let me say to EVERYONE how grateful I am for your prayers, and for your support for Lael, Joelle, and Natalie. Throughout all of this I have felt God's presence and your prayers.

I am home now and resting comfortably. We are not taking visitors for a few more days. One reason is if I talk it tickles my throat. If my throat is tickled, I want to cough. When I cough it HURTS my sternum. So like the Direct TV commercial might say.... "Don't take visitors."

I'm doing well and the surgeon believes I will make a full recovery in time.

I don't know who put the sweet sign in our front yard, but it was a very special thing for you do do.

Thank you again for your love for my family this past week!!

God bless,

Noel

All of our hearts stopped for just a moment when we heard that our dear brother Noel Whitlock had suffered a heart attack last Sunday. As a congregation, we are hurting. But, with eyes of faith, Lael summed up what we’re all thinking, “God’s hand has been in this every step of the way.” With our own Reid Thomas right there by Noel’s side when the attack happened, to the incredible care given to him at the Arkansas Heart Hospital, Noel has been under the Lord’s care. God hears our prayers. Keep them going!

Noel - Update


Today is Day 1 after triple bi-pass. Noel is free of the chest tube, balloon pump and heart line!!  Now it's time to rest and to recover.  He is stable and looks great and still has a great sense of humor.  He is being the best patient by listening to LAEL.  If all continues to go well, he may be home as early as next week!  Thank you, thank you for your prayers. No visitors at this time. We will let you know when he can have limited visits.  - Lael Whitlock


Noel - Update


Noel's surgery this morning went well. He had three bypasses and is now in recovery.
The family requests no visitors for 48 hours. Thank you for all of your prayers!


Noel - Update


Noel had a restful night last night. Pre-op tests were performed today to get ready for his surgery tomorrow morning. Please keep him in your prayers.


Noel - Update


The latest on Noel from Lael is:

Dr. Williams assistant was in a few minutes ago and said they have Noel TENTATIVELY scheduled for surgery at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Noel is awake and feeling well. No nausea. He is in good spirits.


Noel Whitlock


Our pulpit minister, Noel Whitlock, suffered a heart attack yesterday afternoon (March 30) while at the White County Hospital in Searcy. After being stabilized, Noel was transferred to the Arkansas Heart Hospital in Little Rock where he is scheduled for triple bypass surgery sometime in the next few days.

Please keep Noel, Lael, Joelle, and Natalie in your prayers. The church office will keep everyone posted on the latest information as it comes available.

No visitors are recommended at this time.

We have been anticipating today for several weeks. Our theme this morning is “Tearing Down Strongholds.” The elders have invited two local Christian counselors, Jim Galyan and Ryan Butterfield, to build interest for further instruction and assistance for anyone who may know someone dealing with an addiction. Our goal is not only to encourage someone to seek the necessary help, but to also equip us as a church family to love, encourage and support for those who struggle.

Our theme for both morning services will be “Tearing Down Strongholds.” We will be addressing some of the challenges and struggles many in this congregation are facing.

Carl Mitchell is known for many things, but at the College Church he is especially known as the originator and chief promoter of two of our signature initiatives – reading through the entire Bible in a year and the special contribution to support outreach which we have come to call Great Commission Sunday (GCS). When the former program was initiated, it was conceived of as an annual program to encourage all of us to be consistently in the Word, even if not all of us read through the Bible in each calendar year. When the second program was launched 5 years ago, he and many others hoped it would also become an annual project, but there was no guarantee that it would be.

Last Sunday was another very memorable and inspirational day at College Church! What a joy to meet new people who are visiting with us when we come together. Members, please keep an extra eye open for guests and make them feel at home. Let’s avoid the practice of passing by those we do not know without speaking. It’s always important for every member to be warm, friendly and inviting toward our guests.

If you are not part of a small group study, join us tonight at 5:00 when David Collins will be speaking, and young men from Harding Academy will lead us in an abbreviated time of worship. Immediately following the Harding Academy Chorus will be performing. Everyone is invited to hear the beautiful voices and songs of these gifted young people.

God continues to bless us with joyful worship assemblies, and many guests. Thank you for lifting up your voices in praise and showing kindness to our visitors.

Last Sunday was another excellent day and everyone present was blessed as together we gave praise and glory to God. I want to commend Todd Gentry and all the Harding students who led our 5:00  and 7:15 worship. What a joy to see young men who are developing into great leaders in the kingdom.

I want to personally invite our university students to our 5:00 p.m. worship. Our worship will be led by Harding students. Following the service all college students are invited to the Family Room where our elders, deacons and staff will host the Elders/Student Chili & Soup Supper. There will be copious amounts of food and desserts, so please come hungry.

We have started the year in a very positive way regarding our attendance and giving! It is exciting to think of the opportunities and victories God will provide throughout this year.

It’s been a few weeks since we had a Today bulletin, so I have a lot of catching up to do.
 
I want to thank Mike McGalliard for the excellent message informing us of the great need for Christian foster parents in Arkansas. Searcy Children’s Home (SCH) turns away 82% of the requests because there are not enough foster parents. This congregation has been a large supporter of SCH, but there is much more that needs to be done to serve the needs of these at-risk-children. If you are interested in serving as foster parents or respite care parents, contact SCH at (501) 268-3243. Keep this wonderful ministry in your prayers.

Next Sunday, December 29, the annual Area-Wide End of Year Service will be at College Church at 5:00 p.m. The West Side congregation is directing this years’ service. We are delighted the Highway congregation in Judsonia will now become a part of this service, along with Cloverdale and Downtown. Normally this event is on a Wednesday evening, but because the holidays fall on Wednesdays, it has been moved this year to Sunday. I will be looking for you next Sunday night!

Can you believe we are already midway through December? It seems like we’ve zoomed through 2013; a year to remember. It started off with the church fire in January, and ended with an ice storm cancelling Sunday services. The months in between were filled with uplifting worship services, numerous baptisms, enjoyable fellowship and an abundance of good works. Thank you for making this past year so memorable!

What a delight to worship with the College Church family! Thank you for being a church family that is just as devoted to fellowshipping and encouraging one another as you are to worshiping the Lord. How wonderful to see our children down front last Sunday to sing, “The Lord’s Army.” Remember, the Children’s Worship is dismissed until after the first of the year.

We have two coping seminars taking place right now. The second half of Mike Justus’ “Coping with Aging Parents” meets Sunday night in Room 121, at 5:00. As our society continues to age and people are living longer, this is becoming an increasing concern for many families. I know this seminar will benefit many in our congregation. Josh Strickland is leading “Coping with Grief” at the Rock House, 5 p.m. Josh is a licensed counselor and has done extensive work to help people who have experienced loss in their lives. If this seminar would bless you, we hope to see you there.

Harding’s Homecoming is a special weekend in Searcy! Hotels are filled, restaurants have lines, Race Avenue traffic is more crowded than usual, and the campus is swarming with alumni. This is when many return to a place that will always feel like “home” because Harding is where they first met their spouse, formed life-long friendships, and grew stronger in their faith. If you have “come home” this weekend, we are glad you are here! Thank you for joining us for worship, and we will enjoy the rich fellowship together!

My desire is you have been encouraged and inspired by them to personally play an active role in this year’s GCS special contribution. The goal is $250,000 and it will help support good works all over the world and several short-term student campaigns during spring and summer breaks. Thank you for the generosity you will display next Sunday!

What a privilege to be a part of last Sunday’s worship services! The song service in both assemblies was splendid, and it’s always a blessing to join with brothers and sisters and worship together. One highlight was to take a few minutes to honor Sam Billingsley, who is retiring, and to present him with a plaque. We wish Sam and Mary Sue the very best, and we are thankful they are staying right here with us!

Wasn’t last Sunday amazing? It’s exciting to have our Harding students back! It’s special to see brand new faces that will be part of our congregation the next four years. Thanks to every member who did a small part to make one or more of our college students and parents feel welcome. I’m looking forward to how our students will bless the College Church this school year!
All university students are invited to the Student Supper in their honor Sunday night following the 5:00 student-led worship. Members are asked to bring finger foods, sandwiches, chips, desserts, etc. We want to encourage all students and members to be part of this good fellowship meal. We look forward to seeing everyone there!

We have come to my personal favorite Sunday of the year! With university classes beginning tomorrow, this is the Sunday when hundreds of Harding students come through our doors, many for the first time. This is the Sunday when many parents and students take part in our worship assembly knowing a tearful goodbye awaits them after the final “Amen” (tissue available upon request). This is the Sunday when softy dads, with lumps in their throats, give the proverbial final embrace to their kid. This is the Sunday when somber moms will tenderly kiss a cheek, offer one last piece of parental advice, and bravely get into the SUV and cry.

TODAY Bulletin 8/18/2013


TODAY Bulletin 8/11/2013


Last Sunday was an incredible time of worship at College Church! The auditorium was filled to capacity and the song service was affectionately dubbed by Mike Wood as “Throwback Sunday” due to the use of vintage songbooks and no PowerPoint. The singing was absolutely inspiring. I had goose bumps listening to you sing “On Zion’s Glorious Summit.” Thank you for making each assembly an inspiring time of worship to God!

Today is Promotion Sunday when many of our kids get acquainted with their new Bible class teachers. We hope to close worship a few minutes early today to encourage parents to go by and meet their child’s new teacher.

We give God thanks for another wonderful Sunday together last week. I know that I regularly brag on our song service, but the past few weeks have been extra-exceptional. We have gifted song leaders who always do an outstanding job, but much of the thanks goes to every member who intentionally raises a voice to sing out a little stronger. God is glorified when worshipers “Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:19).

The Great Commission reminds us to “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:20). The Great Commandment instructs us to “love God,” and to “love your neighbor” (Matthew 10:27). Together these two words form the Great Opportunity. We love others because God first loved us. We tell the story of salvation because we have been blessed to have heard it. We are “Blessed to be a Blessing.”

The 2013 Vacation Bible School is now history and it was a tremendous success! Everything about this year’s VBS was excellent! Many volunteers from Cloverdale, College, Downtown and West Side worked hard to provide a spectacular VBS for our community.

TODAY Bulletin 6/30/2013


TODAY Bulletin 6/23/2013


Vacation Bible School begins Sunday night, 6–8:00, and goes through Wednesday. This is going to be another exhilarating and exhausting week, but VBS is supposed to be fun and leave you tired. Each summer the Cloverdale, Downtown, West Side and College Church congregations pool together their talent and creativity to produce a wonderful Carnival in the park and VBS. Seeing the faces of kids excited about singing, drama and Bible stories makes it all worthwhile! VBS requires an “all-out-effort” and takes an army of volunteers. Every person who helps in any way is making a big difference!

How great it was to be together in fellowship last Sunday! It was certainly a day to rejoice together and to weep together. We take great joy in the decision of Sienna Patten, daughter of Todd and Felicia Patten, to put her faith in Christ Jesus and be baptized by her father at Camp Tahkodah on June 5. Sienna is part of a very faithful and precious family, and it is uplifting to see parents leading their children to Jesus. Please join me in praying for Sienna and her new walk with God.

People are telling me they are going to be more intentional to share their fellowship with other believers anytime we are together.

Friends Day was a special day for College Church! The attendance was the largest it has been since before the “great fire.”  Children, youth and adult classes were filled to capacity. We enjoyed rich fellowship together in the assembly and the reception. I appreciate Todd and Debbie Gentry, Trish Price, and everyone who works with the College & Outreach Ministry for working so hard to prepare for the reception.

Last Sunday Bruce McLarty informed us of Sam Billingsley’s decision to retire this summer, August 31. Sam and Mary Sue first came to College Church 18 years ago so he could serve as our Family Life Minister & Church Administrator. Most of us have only a small inkling of all Sam does for our church family. He grasps the “big picture” as well as anyone and keeps all of our ministries functioning in unison. The elders know they can depend upon his capable oversight of day-to-day operations, and his personal care for members. His ministry is a blessing to us all.

The generosity of this congregation never ceases to impress me. The total from our special Disaster Relief contribution stands at $16,611. This will be used to offer immediate help for those affected by the tornado that struck Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Any remaining amount will go to refund our depleted Disaster Relief Fund. If you were unable last week and you would like to contribute to the Disaster Relief Fund, there are white envelopes provided on the tables in the Benson foyer. Insert your contribution into the envelope and place it in the collection plate this morning. As Sam Billingsley mentioned last week, there are names and stories of individuals whose lives have been touched and saved because of the generosity and service of College Church members. Another trip is planned to go to Hattiesburg on March 21-24. If you would like to go, contact Doug Yaeger, 279-3605.

It was announced last Sunday that today we will be taking up a special contribution for Disaster Relief. These monies will help those most affected by the recent Hattiesburg, Mississippi, tornado. College Church has traditionally responded by sending workers into areas hardest hit by hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and other natural disasters. This church has also been financially generous to fund relief efforts. As you entered this morning, you should have received a white envelope clearly marked “Disaster Relief.”

Taking part in this relief effort were Doug Yeager, Mike Caldwell, Trish Elmer, Bob Murdock, Farah Price and Aaron Copeland (Downtown). The group reported that they worked on a number of homes and that the need to return and help rebuild will continue for several months. In order to help with this special need, a special contribution will be taken next Sunday to enable our workers to help families in need of financial help to rebuild their homes. If you would like to help continue this recovery effort, please come prepared next Sunday to contribute to this need.

Congratulations to Sally Paine, Mary Lou Dunn and Sunshine School for the $1000 donation from the new Walmart Neighborhood Market at the grand opening. When you are in the new Walmart, make it known you are grateful for the generosity.

God is blessing central Arkansas with unseasonably warm weather in early February. We give Him thanks for another joyful and blessed Lord’s Day! Our worship time together is a little different due to the fire and water restoration at the building requiring us to worship at the Benson in the morning, and in the Family Room at evening time. Soon the auditorium will be better than before, and the walls will resonate once again with songs and sounds of praise to God. Thank you for your positive attitudes during this time.

God blessed us last Sunday with beautiful weather. Our attendance has slipped a bit, mostly due to the inconvenience
for many to worship in the Benson. But we are grateful for everyone’s presence and for the privilege of worship
together. If you are one of our guests, thank you for being with us today. You are always welcome!

I want to commend every College Church member for your dedication to be part of our worship assemblies and Bible classes. We had 1026 in classes last Sunday!

Now that the holidays are over and a new year has begun, this is a great time to find your place in one of our Sunday morning Bible classes. We average well over 1100 in Bible study each Sunday, and that means many of our classes are packed already, but there is always room for more. College Church has outstanding Bible teachers in our children, teen, college and adult classes. If you are not regularly attending a Bible study, check out the classes listed on the back page of the bulletin and visit around to find a class that’s right for you.

On Monday our nation will celebrate Memorial Day. As Americans, we enjoy incredible liberties and opportunities because of those who have served to defend and preserve our freedoms. It is appropriate to remember those who have served our nation, and especially honor those who sacrificed their lives for you and me. To our veterans here today, we extend to you our gratitude for your service!
