Woodstock Baptist/Jasper Campus Pastor Eddie Rhodes preaching at the former Mt. Hope Community Church in Hill City. Mt. Hope will become the first satellite campus of Woodstock First Baptist Church located off Hwy. 92.

 

Two weeks ago, the Sunday morning service was a little different for members of Mt. Hope Community Church on Hwy 53 West, located directly across from Hill City Elementary.

Emblazoned on a screen behind the pulpit was “Woodstock Church/Jasper,” the church’s new name, and Eddie Rhodes from First Baptist Church of Woodstock was introducing himself to the congregation as the new campus pastor.

“Their leadership came to us,” said Woodstock First Baptist Church Pastor Johnny Hunt, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. “They came to us and they said they may lose what they had. They were at a point where they couldn’t pay their pastor. They could pay rent but there was no money for ministry and they needed help.”
