Helping people discover Christ through the seasons of life

When we talk about opening your heart's door to friends and strangers, we're talking about building community.  That's something missing from today's society--real community. Except, of course, in small towns.  Someone said, "The nice part of living in a small town is that when I don't know what I'm doing, someone else does." That's how I felt growing up in a smaller community for sure.  It seemed like I could

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…" Matthew 28:19-20 What a great Sunday!  Still excited for what God has done and the future of disciple making that is going to take place through you, the church.  Remember that all of us are called to make di

“To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps.” – 1 Peter 2:21 This verse has continually been running through my mind this week.  It is our key verse for this series but I still can't just shake it off and that is what I love so much about Jesus.  He continually challenges me on all levels to consider others so much more than myself

What a great week and your generosity has been seen again through your giving to the Salvation Army and helping them with Thanksgiving to needy families. Thank you and we will never know this side of heaven of how much our giving can make a difference. I pray that you will continue to examine your life and what ways you have not been generous.  Maybe it is with your time or using your talents for God's service.  I do know that if we will se

Last Sunday we learned that the word "called" in the Greek is kaleo (kal-eh'-o); and it means to "call", bid, call (forth). 1 Peter 2:21 tells us, "To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.” Jesus calls each us to the ministry of caring.  We are to follow His example and Jesus did all He could when He was moved to compassion. W

Our District Superintendent Steve Hoffman challenged us Sunday with the fact that God will go to any lengths to reach someone with His Message of Hope.  The question for each of us is, "Are we willing to do the same?" We know that God is pursuing lost people even before others do and that He is looking for spirit-filled and spirit-directed people to do the same. So many times we don't keep our eyes and ears open to see the needs of

Sunday we wrapped our series on Traveling Light.  I hope this has been a series that has helped you to know that our hurts, habits, and hang-ups do not have to get the best of us. One quote that keeps running through my mind, "Is that God never wastes anything that happens in our life."  It truly believe that.  I have seen that in my own life. I am still amazed that God takes everything that goes in our life from childh

Sunday we looked at the question, "What negative emotional door have you left open?" All of us in life have dealt with hurt, disappointment and the pain that comes with it. Many times the wound runs deep and the pain is still sharp. Often is the case we have stuffed the hurt deep down and have not taken the time to allow God to deal with what we have kept bottled up so for so long in our life.  When we stuff our hurt, it ends up coming

Sunday I asked you the question what is controlling or mastering you?  “…for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him….”  2 Peter 2:19 . There are so many things in that go in our life and so many things that we allow in.  Items such as social media, television, people (relationships), work and church life. There are substances that can end up being our master as wel

I hope you survived Sunday mornings message.  It can be a tough one when we have turned God into a functional Savior.  Meaning that we trust in money and use God.  Instead of trusting in God and using money. In our world today it is so easy to get caught up in trusting money to provide our happiness and our security.  "If only I can make enough or just have a little bit more" or "If I only could have a months long
