Unlimit Yourself

Posted by    |    July 18th, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Reid and I were in need of spiritual nourishment today, so we went to the 11:15 am service at Higher Mark Church this morning.  Most of you are probably not aware of Higher Mark — a small church located in a shopping center off W. Camp Wisdom Road in South Dallas — but you should be.  We’re talking about a full on, roof-raising gospel Baptist church headed by Pastor Billy Adkison.  Don Ollie is the Music Director, and you don’t get that position at this church unless you know what you are doing.

Pastor Adkison can flat out preach.  His sermon, “Unlimit Yourself,” could have been written specifically for me.  He called on all of us to toss away the impediments and barriers that keep us from using our gifts to serve the Lord.

I get a little antsy at the one hour mark of most services, so I was really surprised to leave a full three hours after we got there, totally energized by a congregation that welcomed us with open arms, hugs, and prayers.  Reid and I witnessed the power of a fully engaged, small congregation singing, praying, and helping each other in a way reminiscent of another era.

I am a member of Highland Park Presbyterian Church, but I fully intend to stop by from time to time to visit my new found friends at Higher Mark Church.  And you should, too.

    I attend Gateway Church in Southlake but I am definitely going to make a special stop to Higher Mark! I’ve already heard their choir sing outside of Church, can’t wait to be apart of it inside!!

    Sounds like a “must” experience. Thanks for sharing!

    Word!

  4. I’d never heard of Higher Mark before, but it’s on my list of great churches to experience now. I love leaving a sermon and feeling refreshed and ready to tackle a new week with God’s guidance!
