Thanksgiving

Our Harvest Meal is this Saturday at noon. What a great time of fellowship we will have. I love the holiday season. As family visits, church activities expand and memories are made, my prayer is that each of you will make good memories through the end of 2016. No, not everything will go according to […]

Fall Is In the Air

Finally, the cooler weather of Fall is here! I don’t know about you but I am ready for it. The turning of the leaves and the cool, crisp evenings give most of us a renewed spirit after the long, hot summer. This Fall is filled with something that most of us will be glad is […]

Dog Days of Summer

The longer summer drags on, the more I look forward to Fall. You know what I mean? Frequently, we tend to look forward to things instead of making the best out of where we are. When we are young, we long to be teens. When we are teens, we look forward to being out from […]

Happy Birthday America

I love patriotic holidays. I love being a citizen of the United States of America. It is a great nation no matter what has been happening to her in the past 8 years. While you are in services tomorrow, remember that we enjoy our freedom to worship because God allowed this nation to be formed […]

Okay, Now What?

Easter is over. All the planning for church programs, hiding eggs (and finding most of them), wearing our pretty Easter dresses or colorful shirts, Holy Week activities, etc., are over. Now it is, in a sense, “back to normal.” But, why should that be? Aren’t we excited the other 51 weeks of the year that […]

Easter Week

This is the week of the year that many Christians consider the “Holy Week.” It brings to memory the sacrifice of Jesus for the sins of the world. As Christians, this is not an annual remembrance, however. Each Sunday we participate in communion and remember the death of Jesus. Easter is a special day that […]

Easter’s Coming

For the Christian church calendar, this is a busy time of the year. Palm Sunday is March 20th. This is the day the church celebrates as it remembers the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem the week of His death. We are amazed that the crowd here is shouting “Hosanna” and worshipping Jesus when we […]
