GOD’S HOLY WORD
God’s Word is the traveler’s map, the pilot’s compass, the pilgrim’s staff, the soldier’s sword, and the believer’s log.
The Bible contains light to direct you; comfort to console you; food to sustain you; wisdom to teach you; fire to warm you.
THIS BOOK REVEALS
THE MIND OF GOD,
THE STATE OF MAN,
THE WAY OF SALVATION.
Read it thoughtfully; read it frequently; read it prayerfully. Read it to be wise; believe it to be safe; practice it to be holy; memorize it to grow.
“One of the Greatest Women I Have Ever Known”
I write this article to you today with a heavy heart.
It is not because someone has died. It is not because someone has
cancer. It is because one of my closest and dearest friends and one
of the greatest women I have ever known is leaving us. Yes, by now
you know of whom I am speaking. I am speaking of Jeanette Ham.
And, when I say that she is one of the greatest women I have ever known,
I mean it. I say that not just because she has taken me under her
wing and helped me to be the best pastor I can be for Immanuel. It
is not just because of our friendship that has developed over the years.
It is not just because she has mothered me, protected me, and nurtured
me; even those are very important, precious and meaningful memories.
It is because she is one of the most godly women I have ever met.
She is the purist example of a Proverbs 31 woman. Her value is by
far much more than gold and silver and much greater than we could ever
have hoped to pay her.
In Service to Him,
JEANETTE M. HAM

SUBMITS RESIGNATION LETTER
Dear Willie, Deacons, and Members of Immanuel Baptist Church,
I have always prayed that God would direct me in my ministry at Immanuel Church, and when the time came that I should leave, He would give me peace in knowing I had fulfilled my task. On Thursday, July 14, 2005, I came to the realization that now was the time for me to step away from my position here at Immanuel and look forward to new directions God has waiting for me as I enter my retirement years.
With this having been said, I am submitting my resignation as Ministry Assistant/Administration of Immanuel Baptist Church effective Friday, August 12, 2005. I will truly cherish the 29 years and 3+ months spent with you. Immanuel has always been “my other church family”, and I will continue to love each of you and treasure your friendship. I thank you for being a special part of my life.
Even though my days on staff will end, my prayers will continue to be with you individually and as a church body.
With my love,
“Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise!”
