SHINING STAR NEWSLETTER
To be an excellent fellowship of worshippers that populate heaven with the souls of each generation; to be an impactful, transformative church that witnesses and testifies to the truth of God – The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit with love, integrity, and sincerity.
To do ministry in excellence by advancing the Gospel of Jesus in worship, Christian education, congregational care, evangelism, and community development.
" 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. 11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus." Romans 6:8-11

What is Palm Sunday and why do we celebrate it?
Palm Sunday is a celebration for honoring Jesus Christ’s victorious entry into Jerusalem. While this was a joyful, special occasion for his followers, this event took place towards the end of his days on Earth before being crucified.
Building Lives Around Sound Truth
In pursuit of the WORD, we intend to have a BLAST (name of Worship Service).
The Life Changing Power of the Cross and Resurrection
“Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14-6 NIV
You can’t bury POWER, for it won’t stay there. You can’t bury TRUTH, for it is not dead, and you can’t bury LOVE, for it can’t be contained. Jesus is ALIVE! HE won the victory over sin and death. HE is still the same, even after EASTER He will still be the same, for HE never changes. “Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 NKJV HE has made a way for us to live free. No other truth has the ability to change lives and future living as the message of the cross and still so many choose to reject it. Don’t be one of those, try building your
life on the WORD of God!!!
In an effort to be more efficient and precise in tracking contributions, everyone over the age of 21 is asked to consider placing all cash givings (tithes, offerings, other) in an envelope with a printed name, address and contact number. This will assist in updating our membership roster as well.

60 Minutes “Round Up"
The 60 Minutes “Round Up was held on April 3, 2022. The purpose of the “60 Minutes Round Up” was to make everyone aware of the 60 Minutes Ministry. It is our prayer that everyone become a part of a 60 Minutes Group where you can share some exciting times with us. 60 Minutes the educational as well as the relationship building aspect of Star Hill. Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32
I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE 60 MINUTES MINISTRY.
The goal of the ministry is to fulfill all of the core values (Grow, Serve, Belong, Share and Celebrate) of Star Hill Baptist Church through an organized, balanced approach within the context of an hour, not in an hour, but within the context of an hour. It could be said that the 60 Minutes Ministry is a purpose driven Sunday School. However, it is much more than Sunday School or another name given to Sunday School. It is an integral part of “How We Do Church At Star Hill.” The
60 Minutes starting time is 9:30 am and ends at 10:30 am.
