Pastoral Update: Wednesday, August 3
Greetings and blessings from Shawn and me. We had a wonderful time of vacation and are glad to be back home. I wanted to go ahead and send you my weekly update early in order to inform you of some new developments pertinent to our church. This is probably old news by now because the Enola pipeline is really fast—but I regretfully want to inform you that Pastor Jonathan Puckett, who has faithfully served as our Youth and Children’s Director for the past five years, has been called and has accepted the same position at one of our sister churches, Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church. He will begin his ministry there on August 17. We all wish him, Sara and the children, well as they follow the bidding of the Lord. I hope that you will continue to pray that the Lord will use him greatly as he continues to minister in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Needless to say, we will immediately begin a search for a new minister for our youth and children. Our deacons have already been tasked by the Church Council with doing some preliminary work to select and present the names of five persons who will serve as a Search Team. They will present those names to the Church Council for approval (as required by our Constitution and Bi-laws) on Sunday evening, August 9. (
Note: Church Council members, please meet in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m.) The Church Council will approve the selection of the Search Team and will present their recommendation to the church during a special-called business meeting at the end of the service on August 16. At that business meeting, we will also present Budget, Deacon, and Ministry Team recommendations for your consideration two weeks later (August 30). Please pray that God will faithfully select and guide this team to search for that special, called, and anointed person who will lead our ministry to children and youth.
Although we are living in unprecedented times, our God has not been caught off guard by this development. The Lord always has a plan and He will certainly complete His purposes for Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. We will excitedly look forward to see what blessings He has in store for us in the coming months and years. While this selection process moves forward, I fully expect that some of you will step forward and faithfully lead both our children and our youth through this transition process. If you are willing to serve, please let either me or Brandon Dixon know.
For those of you with children who would like to attend our Sunday morning worship services, I want to make you aware that beginning this Sunday and each Sunday afterwards, we will have some activity packets available for you so that they may have some. The packet will be age-specific and will include: (1) a listen closely sheet; (2) a small manipulative Bible story book; (3) a packet of colored pencils; and (4) a special gift. Please come and pick those up at the front of the church before each service and join us for worship. Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday for Bible study and again this next Sunday. Finally, may the Lord bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you now and forever more.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Jack

A Welcome from our Pastor
You are cordially invited to drop in on us at Pleasant Hill and experience what God is doing. We are a group of imperfect people who desire to worship God, lift up the name of Jesus, Love all, Reach all, Teach all, and Send all of His disciples into a broken world. Come as you are. We are saving a place for you.

If you are looking for a church home, we hope and pray that you will venture up to “The Hill.” We are located only four miles from I-40 and yet have the feel of a small country church that is made up of a fellowship of believers who are bursting with love and are excited about loving, reaching, teaching, and serving all that come seeking a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. We have a rich history of faith, obedience, and worship and believe that this is the time for Pleasant Hill to continue to be the great beacon of faith that it has been for generations, as well as begin to strengthen our fellowship and outreach. The church stands looking out over the community of Enola, with gorgeous views of the mountains and orchards that surround her. That’s why we affectionately call our place, “The Hill.”

It is my privilege to lead this amazing church to carry out our vision to lift up the name of Jesus, to preach the Word of God, to reach the lost, and to teach, disciple and ready God’s children to reach out to a lost and dying world. Sound like a great place?
You bet it is! Come on out and see.

Dr. Jack R. Hodges, Jr., Senior Pastor
