Pastor’s Message: Do You Believe?

Pastor’s Message: Do You Believe?

Do You Believe? “But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark... Read More

Pastor’s Message: Giving Up and Growing in God’s Grace for Lent

Pastor’s Message: Giving Up and Growing in God’s Grace for Lent

As Christians, we ought to never stop growing and being all that God has called us to be. Instead of seeking to give up sweets and caffeine and foul language, perhaps we can peruse this list by Pastor Phil Ressler to things to give up … and leave behind. Happy reading. Happy living. Ash Wednesday... Read More

Happy New Year!!! Time to Light Up the World!!! Isaiah 60:1 “Arise and shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord shines over you.” It’s 2017! What a grand (okay, it was often challenging) 2016 we had as a people and body of Christ. I can’t help but praise God and... Read More

Pastor’s Message: Thanks for Giving Yourself Away

Pastor’s Message: Thanks for Giving Yourself Away

I love these words in Acts 20:35, attributed to the Apostle Paul: “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way, we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “it is more blessed to give than to receive.” Our mission, as... Read More

We Press On … Shining Our Light for Christ

We Press On … Shining Our Light for Christ

God’s love drives out hate. It was Martin Luther King, Jr. who rightly said that “… darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” In the light of the horrific and senseless killings at the Orlando nightclub on June 12, 2016, I know that... Read More
