Call to Worship                           

We have come as the body of Christ to do Holy business for our King. We have come in troubled times, but we have high spirits.  We know the  Eternal One is still on the throne.  Saints, lift up holy hands, lift high your voices and praise the Sovereign One.  Mighty is our God, holy are His judgments, and He is altogether lovely.  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

It is time again to think about in-house Christmas cards exchange for our in-house members.  Our Youth and Christmas cards committee will again collect, assemble and distribute Christmas cards from and to members of our regular attending congregation only. You are welcome to bypass the cost of postage stamps by bringing your cards to the church and disburse your Christmas cards free.   You may bring your cards from now until Sunday, Dec.10, as the last Sunday for drop-off. Collection boxes will be placed in the Church vestibule. You may also drop them off at the church office.   

Please get your cards in to us early so that all can have their cards before Christmas!  Safety procedures will be taken in the handling of received cards as well as the distributions.   

Further info will be given regarding dates persons may drive-by to pick up cards—if needed.



All persons who have had changes in your name and or mailing address are asked to please forward this information to the church office.  This will aid in our end-of-year mailings.  Thank you for your prompt response.



“Sweet Hour of Prayer”—Prayer Meeting

Again, all are encouraged to meet this Tuesday for a special time of prayer for our church body.   Pastor Sholar has asked that we continue to gather in the Chapel Sanctuary at 12noon and assemble for prayer for one hour, uniting in prayer before the LORD.  We are blessed to know--and are assured--God hears and answers prayer—we want to be faithful to continue in prayer.   Please plan to attend.

“…And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you;

seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”      Luke 11:5-10

  I Love Jesus

I love Jesus, He’s my Savior,

when the storms are raging, He’s my shelter,

where He leads me, I will follow,

I love Jesus, He loves me.


I love the Lord and I won’t take it back,

I love the Lord and I won’t take it back,

I love the Lord and I won’t take it back,

He has been so good to me.


So good, so good, so good, so very good,

so good, so good,

He has been so good to me.


Bless that wonderful name of Jesus,

bless that wonderful name of Jesus,

bless that wonderful name of Jesus,

no other name I know.


There’s power in the name of Jesus,

power in the name of Jesus,

power in the name of Jesus,

no other name I know.


So good, so good, so good so very good,

so good, so good,

He has been so good to me.


I love the Lord and I won’t take it back,

I love the Lord and I won’t take it back,

I love the Lord and I won’t take it back,

He has been so good to me.


Min. Nickolas B. Turner


Nickolas Brandon Turner was born on May 16, 1996, to his wonderful parents, Ronnie and Shellaine Turner. He grew up in West Louisville with his twin brother, Nathan Turner.

Nickolas (Also known as Nick) gave his life to Jesus Christ when he was in eighth grade by hearing the Gospel message through Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). His passion for Jesus and basketball has given him a unique platform to share the Gospel message of Jesus Christ on and off the basketball court.


Nick is a graduate of Boyce College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. In addition, he played four years for the Boyce Bulldogs College Men’s Basketball Team. He is currently pursuing a Masters of Theology degree at Campbellsville University. Nick is employed at Christian Academy of Louisville as a High School Bible Teacher, 7th Grade Boys Basketball Head Coach, and Assistant High School Track Coach.


Nick is newly married to his best friend, Cheyenne Turner. They met at Bible study in the winter of 2015. Two years later they served alongside one another for three consecutive summers with the Project Jesus outreach ministry. On October 11th, 2020 the couple officially tied the knot.


At the age of 27, life still seems to be just beginning for Nick. However, he is humble, excited, and grateful for his calling to the Gospel ministry. On July 28, 2019, Nick accepted his call to the ministry to preach the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, and was licensed as a minister by his former pastor, Rev. Joel A. Bowman Sr. at the Temple of Faith Baptist Church. Currently, Nick serves at Watson Memorial Baptist Church as a minister and Sunday school teacher under the pastoral leadership of Senior Pastor, Rev. Dr. Toussaint Adams.




Responsive Reading for the Month of November, 2023:

Catechism – a set form of questions and answers to teach the tenets of the Christian Faith:

Question: What is faith in Jesus Christ?

Answer: Receiving and resting on Him alone for salvation as He is offered to us in the gospel.


Question: What do we believe by true faith?

Answer: We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the   right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead.

                     “Count Your Blessings”

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,

When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,

Count your many blessings—name them one by one,

And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.


Count your blessings—name them one by one.

            Count your blessings—see what God hath done.

            Count your blessings—name them one by one.

 Count your many blessings—see what God hath done.
