Living Proof Simulcast
Saturday, September 13
If you’ve ever enjoyed studying the Bible through Beth Moore Bible studies, you’ll love experiencing her teaching via simulcast. Beth’s mission is to guide women everywhere into a richer, more fulfilling relationship with the Father.
Hunter Street women are invited to attend a Live Simulcast of Beth Moore’s Living Proof Conference on Saturday, September 13 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Gardendale’s First Baptist Church. Ticket are $22 (includes lunch) if purchased by September 4 and are available in the church office. For more details contact Shannon Prado.
Foster Parent/Respite Care Training
Could God be calling you to protect and restore children in need by serving as a foster parent or a respite care provider? Hunter Street’s Orphan Care Ministry is the place to start as you learn more about nurturing children in need.
Training is required to provide Christian homes for foster children. The Orphan Care ministry partners with Alabama Baptist Children’s Home to provide training. There are several requirements including passing background and finger printing checks. To find out more, contact Jodie Frye. The next 10-week foster parent training course begins on September 14. Childcare will be provided.
Nominate A Deacon
Deacon nominations are now being accepted.
Church members may nominate men to serve as Deacons. Is there a man who you, after prayerful consideration, believe should represent the Lord and Hunter Street Baptist Church in this position? If so, please complete a Deacon nomination form in the Church Office. Nominations close September 3.
Career Transition Mentors Needed
The Career Transition Ministry at Hunter Street is a resource for those looking for a job.
As this ministry expands to assist more people, we’re seeking mentors, especially females, to help job seekers. What does it take to be a mentor? Consider this “job description” and seek the Lord’s wisdom to see if He is leading you to be a mentor.
Duties. A CT mentor will work one-on-one with a job seeker to provide spiritual help and encouragement. Men will work with men, women will work with women.
Skills. A desire to help others through a stressful life situation and the ability to meet periodically during the job search.
Qualifications. A man or woman who is a well-grounded, mature Christ-follower. A Human Relations background is not required. All career types are needed.
Training Provided. Mentor training will take place on Sunday, July 10. For more information contact Joan Landrum.
Why Me? What Now?
Do you know someone who is going through cancer treatment? Have you ever thought or asked: “Why me and what now?”
Hunter Street’s cancer support ministry, Rays of Hope, will look into this question and seek biblical answers at the September 14 meeting. Brian and Karen Rosenow will be our guest speakers.
Please join them as they take a biblical approach in exploring trials and tough times of this journey. They’ll also address coping strategies during times of diagnosis and beyond. The meeting starts at 5:00 p.m. in Room E301. Anyone is welcome to attend, including patients, family and friends.

Men’s Basketball League
The Hunter Street Men’s Basketball league will begin play on September 15. Now is the time for individuals to register and come out and have some fun. Games will be played on Monday nights in the Gym.
The fee is $30 per player and forms are available at The ROC desk and online. The deadline to register is September 2. Contact Collin McNiel if you have any questions. All teams need to have at least one-half of their team made up of Hunter Street members.
Science and Religion–Are They in Conflict?
Has science disproved God? Or do new scientific discoveries actually provide compelling support for faith? According to a recent survey, 55% of American adults believe that “science and religion [are] often in conflict.” This same attitude can be found among young adults. Nearly a third of young adults with a Christian background say “churches are out of step with the scientific world we live in,” and a quarter of them think “Christianity is anti-science.”
Join us at the Hunter Street Student Building for the Science and Faith Simulcast on September 21 from 5:45 to 8:00 p.m. This is a worldwide simulcast event that will be of interest to everyone, but it will be especially helpful for parents and their middle school, high school, and college-age children. Childcare is available, birth to K-5, by contacting Mary Beth Rush.
The simulcast features Oxford University Professor John Lennox and New York Times bestselling author Stephen Meyer, two of today’s leading speakers and writers on the intersection between science and faith. The simulcast will be emceed by bestselling author Eric Metaxas, whose speaking style has been described as “a combination of edgy wit, charm, inspiration, evangelization, [and] thoughtfulness,” making him a highly sought after public speaker, especially on college campuses.
“You know, I guess I should think about faith and the spiritual dimension of life. But I have never given church or Christianity any thought at all!”
“It’s not that I don’t care about God or religion, I just don’t know anything about God.”
These statements characterize many of the unchurched people living in London. It also clearly illustrates the challenge of sharing the gospel with unchurched, post-Christian, postmodern people. However, as Christians, we are a new creation and have been reconciled to God and have been given the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:17-18)!
We are seeking 2 or 3 more people to help us engage the unchurched people of London and expose them to the Real Jesus and the Real Gospel. Our team is going to London October 17-25. Contact Spencer Knight. to find out more about this exciting opportunity.
English as a Second Language Ministry
The ESL ministry at Hunter Street offers classes four times each week to internationals who wish to learn conversational English.
Many of the ministry leaders have been involved in ESL for several years, while some are just beginning to serve in various opportunities. Teachers, greeters, and those who bring refreshments all fulfill a vital role in this ministry. In addition to classes offered on Sunday mornings and twice on Wednesday, lay ministers and students observe special occasions, such as birthdays, holidays, and other celebrations. Many of the workers seek to build ongoing relationships with the internationals who come. Over 30 different countries have been represented in the classes over the past 12 months.
Additional workers are needed now and all Hunter Street members can be involved through prayer and by referring (or bringing) new students to the ESL classes.
ESL meeting times are Wednesday, 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. To find out more, contact Karla Luttrell.
New! Zumba® classes are back at The ROC. Classes are offered at 9:15 a.m. on Mondays Wednesdays or Fridays. Classes are $4 per session. Check the calendar at roc.hunterstreet.org for the complete schedule or visit The ROC Welcome Desk.
