Interim Pastor: Dr. David Kimberly 1302 Pecan St., Bandera, TX 78003 Bible Study begins at 9:15 a.m. We have study groups for every age. Worship begins at 10:30 a.m.
It is with a heavy heart that the decision has been made to cancel all further church services and activities until further notice. At this time, we are hoping to be back with business as usual by the first Sunday in April. We will keep everyone updated regarding this issue. Please pray that this is resolved as soon as possible. This decision was not an easy one to make. We can still turn to our Lord with all of our fears and concerns but for the time being it will be on a personal level. The Lord will get us through all of this. We must remain strong in our faith. The deacon body, pastor and church staff will remain available by phone if needed.

"From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of My hand. No one can undo what I have done. Isaiah 43:13
From The Heart of God-(title) "I want you to understand all that 'from eternity to eternity' includes. It means that not only can no one undo anything I have done, but that no one can undo what I have said, either. It's true that I often interact with My people with a softness in My will; like Moses, you can change My direction with your prayers and pleas. And, also like Moses, you can forfeit promises that might have applied to you if you had been careful to believe and follow Me closely. But when I have spoken My promises and purposes to you, and you have believed them and been careful to align your life with them, you never need to worry about losing what was promised. No matter how things look, My words will come to pass. Whatever circumstances or arguments come up against them, no matter how unlikely My words may seem, they cannot be quenched or deferred by outside interference. The things I have spoken to you are a sacred trust, and you can hang on to them relentlessly without fear. This may be hard for you to grasp, because you don't know anyone else whose words are unfailing. In the world, you can never be certain that people are able or willing to keep their word. But I am always able, and I would not have spoken My words if I had not been willing. I see the end from the beginning, and I would know if I were giving you false hope. When I speak hope into your life, that hope is real. It is certain. Hang on to it as the voice of an infinite, all-powerful God who cannot fail. You can listen well only when you remember this about Me and cling to who I am.""
(The following is a prayer that Bro. Tiegreen offers) "Eternal God, I'm so used to human wisdom that I forget how eternal and invincible Your words are. Help my spirit to get a true sense of their weight, and forgive me whenever my heart questions Your faithfulness. Nothing and no one can alter what You've spoken." Church Family, our Lord gave us His Word that He will always be with us and He can't lie. Believe Him, pray much, and Know that He loves us and His perfect love casts out all fear. Bro. David Kimberly
