From the Pastor’s Heart


You might be surprised to know how many people meet for prayer and Bible study on Wednesday night. Or should I say, how few

As we begin to pray and prepare for Bible study, my heart is discouraged by the empty chairs in the room.

If you believe in the importance of prayer and review of Scripture, and are able to be present, you should be here.

If you want to encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ, and be encouraged by their company, you should be here. 

If you yearn for the Lord to bless His church, and believe He will if we join together to ask Him, you should be here.

If you have a heart for those who are hurting or searching for God and in need of prayer, you should be here.

If you are aware of the need to be reminded of truth and how to apply it to everyday life, you should be here.

If you do not have a reason to be absent, you should be here. 

I hope you will join us Wednesdays, 6:15-7:15 p.m. in the large classroom near the fellowship hall – so we can pray and study God’s Word together.

Friends on a Journey of Faith


“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Mark 12:30

Loving the Lord should be an easy thing, right?  Often times we think this is one of those easy verses we learn as kids or early on in our faith journey, but there is so much packed into this one verse.  The Lord wants our whole being.  That means that this is the hardest commandment to follow, but it gives way for all the other things He desires for our lives.  When we love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, then as challenges arise we are able to handle them the way that He would call us too, with His love.  This causes us to have general good faith in others, because we want them to Love the Lord just like we do.  At an age when youth and children are bombarded with social media, this verse is even more important.  We often try to compartmentalize ourselves and social media allows us to do that even more.  For those who don’t see us every day it can be tempting to only show the best part of our lives or even to reinvent ourselves on social media.  However, if we are to be true to God with our whole being then we should always challenge ourselves to be real with ourselves and others .  When we are truly showing this to others and living it ourselves our world starts to transform, because we are letting the love of Christ truly guide us in all aspects of life.
