Thanksgiving Banquet & Concert

There is much to be thankful for when we stop and look back at the wonderful things God has done in our lives over the past year. Souls saved, lives changed, and the blessings that God has poured out on our families are just a few. This will be our 10th year celebrating those everyday miracles and we would like to invite you to join us as we do.

This year returning for the 4th time will be Living Proof Gospel Music with their brand new album. This two family bluegrass gospel group will be a blessing to each one of us as they play and sing songs like: There’s No Power in the Water, King of My Heart, Gospel Ship, and What Heaven Means to Me. You won’t want to miss this amazing night.

Final Care Sunday

When the darkest days of your life come, when the one you have loved the most has passed away, who do you turn to in your hour of need?  Most often it is those in the Final Care Industry (Funeral Services).  We are most familiar with the Funeral Director and the Preacher, but there are a lot of people working tirelessly behind the scenes to serve you in having closure and peace in those dark days ahead.

Grace Baptist Church would like to honor all those hard workers in the Final Care Industry.  Everyone from the florist to the grave digger, from the hearse driver to the door usher.  We will have a gift and special recognition for all involved and pot luck dinner to follow the special service.  The public is invited to the service and the free potluck dinner.

Brady Family Singers

Steve Brady was just a child in the 70s & 80s and a member of a large singing family.  They called themselves "God's Brady Bunch."  Laura Caplinger was also in a large family of girls and sang under the name "The Caplingers."  Steve and Laura met, fell in love and married.  Now with children of their own they are missionaries with Bearing Precious Seed and now their family travels and sings.

We at Grace Baptist Church of Huntsville, TX are pleased to have the next generation of singing famlies come to sing and preach for us on Sunday, March 25th.  I hope you will come and be blessed by this lovely family.

Bluegrass Gospel Concert and Dinner

As I was praying about who God would have us to bring in for our annual Thanksgiving Banquet, I learned about a family of young people with bright smiles, a good attitude, and a sweet sound.  I heard they were going to be at a church, not too far away, so I made the trek to go hear them for myself.  I listened, tapped my toe, smiled and enjoyed the music for the first half of the concert, then they took a short 5 minute break. That's when it happened; we scheduled The Doucettes Gospel Bluegrass Band to join us for our Thanksgiving Banquet.  Invite a friend and come enjoy great food, fellowship, and sweet southern gospel music.

Veteran's Day Ceremony

Veteran's Day Ceremony

General Douglas MacArthur, supreme commander of the Allied occupation of Japan considered himself, "a soldier of God as well as of the republic."  He believed that democracy rises out of Christianity.  He so much believed this that he pleaded with Christians to send 1,000 missionaries to Japan.

We owe our veterans so much.  Without our soldiers there is no freedom to spread the Gospel, and without the Gospel there is no freedom for the soul.

During this Veterans Day Ceremony we will honor all veterans in attendance (Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, & Merchant Marines). Giving each a gift of gratitude for their service, and providing a free dinner for them and their families.

Teacher Appreciation Sunday

A few years ago I returned to my hometown of Vincennes, IN.  Sure I caught up with friends, ate at my favorite restaurant, Bobe's Pizza, and showed my family where I grew up, but no return visit home is complete without stopping by the old school house and saying, "Hi," to your favorite teacher.  Whether it be elementary, intermediate, middle school, junior high, high school or college, we all have our favorite teachers.  Sunday October 8th we at Grace are going to honor those favorite teachers.  All teachers in attendance (active or retired) will be recognized, given a special gift, and provided lunch.  Invite your favorite teacher to join us for Teacher Appreciation Day.

i am n - Mission's Conference

In northern Iraq, radical Muslims (ISIS) spray-painted the Arabic letter ن, or “N,” on the homes and businesses of Christians. The property owners were publicly identified as Christ-followers and given a choice to convert to Islam, leave or die. The courageous believers refused to deny their faith, and more than 100,000 fled with little more than the clothes on their backs.

As Grace Baptist Church host our annual Mission's Conference, the theme for this year's conference will be "i am n" Each day we will hear from Missionaries "that are n"

Thursday the missionaries will be n prison

Friday Missionary Ed and Janice Seale n Mexico 7:00 pm

Saturday Missionary family n Mindanao 1:00 pm

Sunday Missionary Josh & Natalie Aaron n Australia 11:00 am

Each service Pastor and Evangelist Mark Thrift will be n the pulpit preaching from God's Word.

How much more interesting would your life be if you were followed by a soundtrack everywhere you went? My children often tell me, "You have a song for everything."  Well if that is true it is only because I immerse myself in music.  Come immerse yourself in music with a message as gospel heritage singer and recording artist Shawn Drewett praises the Lord in Song at Grace Baptist Church in Huntsville, TX

Vision Sunday 2017

A stranger came into the old abandoned church and saw what was once the verse Proverbs 29:18 in wooden letters above the pulpit.  With just the first letter of the first word missing a "W," the sign now read, "here There Is No Vision, The People Perish..."

I trust that each member of Grace Baptist Church of Huntsville, TX would want to take part and share in the vision of the church.

Prophet's Chamber Preacher

The phone rings and there is a missionary on the other end of the line.  "Preacher would we be able to use your prophet's chamber?"
