Summer Preaching Series July 30, 2023

This Sunday, we welcome pastor Omar Johnson
Omar grew up in Temple Hills, Maryland. He considered himself to be a Christian for much of his childhood into his early adult years. His lifestyle, however, increasingly testified otherwise. He loved and lived for the pleasures of this world rather than loving and living for God. In 2009, the Lord graciously intervened in Omar's life and saved him. He soon after joined Temple Hills Baptist Church where he remained for a number of years, joyfully serving as a member, and eventually, as one of the church's lay elders.

Omar went on to complete the pastoral internship program at Capitol Hill Baptist Church and an MDiv at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has been the senior pastor at Temple Hills Baptist since September 1, 2019.

Omar and his wife, Stephanie, live in Temple Hills with their three children: Cameron, Leah, and Chloe. We look forward to hearing Omar preach Psalm 73.

Giving at High Pointe
God is generous, and so he calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God in every area of our lives, including what we do with our finances. But as you may have noticed, we do not take up a collection on Sundays at High Pointe. Consequently, we’ve been receiving questions as to how to give. There are several ways you may give:

  1. Offering Boxes in Auditorium – You may place your offering in an offering box.
  2. Mail – You may mail your contribution to the church office.
  3. Text/Online – You may give by texting 84321 (it will require a first-time setup).
  4. Your Bank – You may give through your own bank via Bill Pay or ACH.

If you have any questions, go to this LINK. Our financial staff is also available to help or answer your questions. You may call the church office at 512-837-7725.

On-Call Pastor
To better care for you, High Pointe, we have an “on-call” pastor available for emergencies after office hours and on weekends. To reach the on-call pastor, call 512-837-7725, extension 1.

Preaching Schedule: Pray regularly for the ministry of the Word at High Pointe. Also, prepare for our gatherings by reading the sermon text, thinking it through, and asking questions about the text before Sunday. Here is a preaching schedule designed to help you prepare for Sundays:
