Weekly Update 3.12.18

Over the past week, we’ve lost a lot of things.  We lost a hour of sleep Saturday night.  We apparently lost a pile of snow that was suppose to come our way.  And as of yesterday morning, I hope you’ve lost your enemies.  As we explored the Sermon on the...

Weekly Update 3.5.18

What a great Sunday together yesterday!  I really enjoyed fellowshipping and worshipping will you all.  And since you all came to church with no expectations of a good sermon, I’m sure I knocked it out of the park (that’s a joke but if you missed yesterday’s sermon, you might want...

James 1:22-24— Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he...

A huge shout out and thank you to everyone who came out Saturday morning to help with the first Upward Evaluation Day for this season.  Not only was there plenty of help to make the workload light, but there was also a great sense of fellowship as we all were...

After church yesterday, Allison and I had the privilege to join several families from church who had invited us out to lunch.  As we walked up to the restaurant, one of the pre-teen kids ran up and opened the door for us.  He smiled knowingly has he held it open...
