Join us on Sunday, May 12th
as the
Sonshine Singers present the beloved
play, “I AM A PROMISE”. This upbeat
Christian musical promoting the unique and
special nature of all of God’s children, and
the importance of choosing God’s path for
our lives, is sure to delight. What a
wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Please come fellowship with us - bringing a vegetable, salad or
dessert. The church will provide meat and lemonade.

May 2013 Issue
A Devotional Thought from the Pastor’s desk:
Sometimes You Simply Have to Take Him at His Word
We have all been shaken by the Boston Marathon Bombings. Terrorists succeed when terror takes
up residence in our minds. Events like these shake us deeper than we realize. Preoccupation with
terrifying events makes it hard to recover our “peace of mind”. Our faith tells us that we must find
someone we can trust. Without someone, whom we can completely trust, inner peace becomes
impossible. Then Jesus comes and says to us. “Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God,
believe also in Me.” (John 14:1). We might ask ourselves, have I ever received what Jesus
promises for no other reason than it is Jesus who is speaking? He says, “My peace I give to you,
not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be
afraid” (John 14:27). Can we turn our faces to Jesus and simply take Him at His word, stop being
afraid and trust completely in Him?
Oswald Chambers says, “with regard to troubles that are pressing in upon you right now, are you
looking unto Jesus (Hebrews 12:2) and receiving peace from Him? If so, He, Himself, will be a
gracious blessing of peace for you.” As the hymn says, “I need no other resting place. . . .” But if I
only try to worry my way out of the problem, I destroy His effectiveness in me. We become
troubled in spirit because we have not, as the old hymn suggests “. . . turned our eyes upon Jesus.”
We are too aware of our terrifying circumstances just as Peter became too aware of the wind and
the water when he tried to walk to Jesus across the sea. When a person confers with Jesus Christ,
the confusion stops, because there is no confusion in Him. Try it. Sounds too easy doesn’t it? But
have we given it a try?
Dr. William “Bill” Hardison, Jr.

Mission Moment
Thanks to those who donated money to purchase blank DVDs for Camp
Alkulana.
Volunteers are still needed for our May mission assignment which is to prepare
and serve breakfast to the homeless at Oregon Hill Baptist Center on May 16.
Let Tiffany know if you are interested.
Please continue to buy items for the food closet. Needed items include:
powdered milk (in single pouches), soups, canned meat, canned fruit, cereal,
oatmeal, peanut butter, jelly, mac & cheese, and spaghetti sauce.
As always, thank you for your continued support of our mission projects.
Your Help
is Still Needed . . .
The summer and early fall
consumption of soda is
great in many households,
so let’s continue to help
the Ronald McDonald
House by saving your pop-
top tabs. Drop your tabs in
the container in the main
hallway or you can give
them to Shep. This is a
great cause and your cur-
rent and past help is
greatly appreciated..
Thank you.

The Library Corner of Our Church
Sunday School Update
Rev. Duganne has expressed an interest in the award of the High Attendance
banner. To make it accurate, I will divide the members present by the total number
of members in each class each Sunday. To date, I have already made an error in
my calculations. On March 31st
, the first Sunday the banner was awarded, Johnny
Butler’s Young Men’s Class should have received the banner with 100% present.
Congratulations to this new growing class!!!
The total in Sunday school for the month of March was an amazing 253. This is
the highest total I have recorded since starting in October, 2012. Keep in mind
there were five Sundays plus Easter which would account for the higher number of
attendees. But, this is an indication we are growing with the excellent lessons
provided by our teachers.
DINNER ON THE GROUNDS, sponsored by the Sunday school, will be held
May 19th
with Book Club meeting immediately following. The book is one
everyone would enjoy. Please refer to the Library article in this Candle. Keep
praying that our “family/members” who previously left us will return for our
church’s annual “Dinner on the Grounds”. Possibly this is the occasion to welcome
them back into the fellowship. They are still in our hearts and on our minds.
Linda Eades, Sunday school Director
Our Library has received many newer donations and is always open for members
and friends to enjoy. Please come up and take advantage of newer magazines as
well as a book you could enjoy. As summer (hopefully) approaches and school is
in recess, more time will be available to read for pleasure rather than what’s
required. Our children/youth books have increased and are in the far corner of the
Library.
Proof of Heaven, A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife was written by
Eben Alexander M.D. This is the book we will review on May 19th
right after
“Dinner on the Grounds”. This will be our third book involving trips to heaven
that the Book Club has discussed. If you have not stayed for the discussions we
enjoy, please take this opportunity to do so. We love to have new members with
which to fellowship.
As always, thanks to those who donate books and/or magazines. Ask Barbara
Richards or me to help you if you need a book or magazine and cannot find
something of interest.

As our Wednesday night programming draws to a close in May, I want to thank all those who
are responsible for making it “happen”:
Cherub Choir - Ashley Morgan and Kim Morris
Sonshine Singers - Monica White and Darryl Emerson
Sonshine Ringers - Carolyn Hardison and Mary Ann Johnson
Youth Choir - Bill Duganne, Susan Butler, Monica White, Bob Turner and Darryl Emerson
And of course it would not “happen” without our cook extraordinaire, Norma Gilbert and all
her helpers and dishwashers.
Mostly it would not “happen” without you. Thank you for your support!

  • 2. A Devotional Thought from the Pastor’s desk: Sometimes You Simply Have to Take Him at His Word We have all been shaken by the Boston Marathon Bombings. Terrorists succeed when terror takes up residence in our minds. Events like these shake us deeper than we realize. Preoccupation with terrifying events makes it hard to recover our “peace of mind”. Our faith tells us that we must find someone we can trust. Without someone, whom we can completely trust, inner peace becomes impossible. Then Jesus comes and says to us. “Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.” (John 14:1). We might ask ourselves, have I ever received what Jesus promises for no other reason than it is Jesus who is speaking? He says, “My peace I give to you, not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid” (John 14:27). Can we turn our faces to Jesus and simply take Him at His word, stop being afraid and trust completely in Him? Oswald Chambers says, “with regard to troubles that are pressing in upon you right now, are you looking unto Jesus (Hebrews 12:2) and receiving peace from Him? If so, He, Himself, will be a gracious blessing of peace for you.” As the hymn says, “I need no other resting place. . . .” But if I only try to worry my way out of the problem, I destroy His effectiveness in me. We become troubled in spirit because we have not, as the old hymn suggests “. . . turned our eyes upon Jesus.” We are too aware of our terrifying circumstances just as Peter became too aware of the wind and the water when he tried to walk to Jesus across the sea. When a person confers with Jesus Christ, the confusion stops, because there is no confusion in Him. Try it. Sounds too easy doesn’t it? But have we given it a try? Dr. William “Bill” Hardison, Jr. Canal Cruise with VIP See Richmond from the historic canal - We will leave the church at 10:00am Tuesday, May 28, 2013 on the church bus to take a cruise on the canal. The cost is $5.00 per person. Everyone is invited. We will have lunch afterwards at the Tobacco Company. Commitment Sunday, May 19th Sign-up sheets will be on the upstairs walls for you to sign for a committee of your choice. Please prayerfully consider how God can use you through Westhampton Baptist. Barbara Richards Chair, Nominating Committee

  • 5. The Library Corner of Our Church Sunday School Update Rev. Duganne has expressed an interest in the award of the High Attendance banner. To make it accurate, I will divide the members present by the total number of members in each class each Sunday. To date, I have already made an error in my calculations. On March 31st , the first Sunday the banner was awarded, Johnny Butler’s Young Men’s Class should have received the banner with 100% present. Congratulations to this new growing class!!! The total in Sunday school for the month of March was an amazing 253. This is the highest total I have recorded since starting in October, 2012. Keep in mind there were five Sundays plus Easter which would account for the higher number of attendees. But, this is an indication we are growing with the excellent lessons provided by our teachers. DINNER ON THE GROUNDS, sponsored by the Sunday school, will be held May 19th with Book Club meeting immediately following. The book is one everyone would enjoy. Please refer to the Library article in this Candle. Keep praying that our “family/members” who previously left us will return for our church’s annual “Dinner on the Grounds”. Possibly this is the occasion to welcome them back into the fellowship. They are still in our hearts and on our minds. Linda Eades, Sunday school Director Our Library has received many newer donations and is always open for members and friends to enjoy. Please come up and take advantage of newer magazines as well as a book you could enjoy. As summer (hopefully) approaches and school is in recess, more time will be available to read for pleasure rather than what’s required. Our children/youth books have increased and are in the far corner of the Library. Proof of Heaven, A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife was written by Eben Alexander M.D. This is the book we will review on May 19th right after “Dinner on the Grounds”. This will be our third book involving trips to heaven that the Book Club has discussed. If you have not stayed for the discussions we enjoy, please take this opportunity to do so. We love to have new members with which to fellowship. As always, thanks to those who donate books and/or magazines. Ask Barbara Richards or me to help you if you need a book or magazine and cannot find something of interest.
