Welcome to the Troy, Texas Church of Christ Web Site, and our NEW meeting
house. We invite you to spend some time looking around on our web site.
Troy Church of Christ has been a beacon of good news to the lost and a sanctuary
of rest for saved souls. Our focus continues to be on that Church you can read
about in the New Testament of your Bible. Whatever we do either in words or in deeds, we do it by the expressed authority of Jesus Christ as revealed in his Word.
We are guided by these principles:
- We want to speak where the Bible speaks and to remain silent where the Bible is silent in all matters that pertain to religion.
- In everything religious, we must have a "Thus saith the Lord" authorization for all that is done.
- If you cannot find it in the Bible, do not do it.
"If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen." -- 1 Peter 4:11.
If you have any question, please visit our "Contact" page and ask any question of a religious and Biblical matter that you may have. Every Bible question has a Bible answer.
You are invited to come and worship with us whenever you happen to be in our area. You will find us --
- Exalting God
- Encouraging each other toward spiritual maturity
- Equipping each other for Ministry
- Evangelizing the World for Christ
- Seeking to be Christians only
Please tour our site to find out more about our church and how we can serve you.
P.S Whenever you see the words "The Church" we expressly mean "The Church of Christ"

H. K.'s Letter for September
August 30, 2013
School has begun!Fallis right around the corner (Sept. 22nd). This week has been one of the hottest weeks for this summer. As I set here on Monday morning (Aug.26th) writing this the forecast for Thursday through Saturday is to be in triple digits. By the time you get this you will know if this is true or not.
I am sending this visit (letter) to you early. I wanted you to know about this coming Sunday, September 1st. September has five Sundays in it and Jan and I are taking the first Sunday of the month to go see Mom in Weatherford. Brother James LeFan will be speaking at both services (AM & PM) at Troy. I appreciate and love this brother in Christ and I know you do also. I envy you for being able to sit at the feet of such a great teacher/preacher of God’s Word. I want to take this time to thank those (I know they do not want the praise and notoriety) for making sure brother LeFan got to Troy safely (due to all the construction) so you all could enjoy hearing God’s Word proclaimed by him.
WOW! That is the only way I can express my thanks and appreciation and love to all of you who have written and sent cards to my mother. She wanted me to let you know how much she appreciates all of you. Your kindness and love expressed to her means a lot to the Ballard family. As I have announced (perhaps some of you missed
it) I corrected my announcement about her address. Here is the correct address:
Bertha Ballard, 904 South Lamar, Room 101, Weatherford, Texas 76086. To put your
minds at ease for those who have sent her a letter/card addressed with the wrong number – Mom did receive your letter/card. If your letter/card was returned due to the incorrect address please forgive me. Now you have the correct address.
Also I want to remind you that the Ballards now have a home land line phone number it is 254-624-4209. As I shared last month please allow time as you call. Please be patient if you call this number, allow enough time for us to hear the phone ringing and if we are at home we will answer.
As the year is coming to an end please share with me about how you BE STILL AND KNOW THAT GOD IS WHO HE IS? I continue with my personal study on how others accomplish this in their lives. Please help me by sharing how YOU follow Psalm 46:10 –BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. You can contact me either by email (email@example.com) or call me (254-598-9079 or 254-624-4209)) or snail mail me (4330 Lone Star Trial. Temple, TX 76502) or drop a written note in the box located in the foyer labeled BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD? (please feel free to use the 3X5 cards sitting beside the box).
I also want to go on record saying how much I appreciate the men who helped in
our prayer time last month on Aug.18th. On this night we had our annual prayer time for the Troy ISD and others in other schools for the new school year. Thank you Billy, Jack, Bob, Barry, and Ken for your willingness to serve in leading prayers that night. I also appreciate Jack and Joe for stepping up to the plate to direct, lead and teach the adult bible class on Sunday mornings. You are loved and we are blessed having you as a part of the family of God here at Troy.
As I conclude our time in our visit this month I have another request. Please be
praying for the upcoming House to House Heart to Heartedition. You should be receiving it (in Troy) sometime in September/October. Please be praying for this ministry that we support. If you are outside of the mailing area remember we have extra copies in the foyer.
I love you all, Be still and know who God is,
