Theo Teaches Christian Theology to Children


We had a fantastic first Sunday evening discussion of "I Will" last week. If you were unable to join us, no problem, be sure to come this Sunday at 6:00 pm in the Reception room. But "I Will" is not just for adults and our youth. While the adults and youth are discussing "I Will", our children are learning from "Theo." What or who is Theo you ask? Theo is a great way to learn some basic Baptist theology in a fun and entertaining way. We will answer questions like, why do we believe the … [Read more...]

Submit and Win the Battle

War Room

I was inspired and challenged by the movie WAR ROOM that the church family recently went to see. The movie was a reminder that we need to be firmly rooted in God's Word to stand against Satan's attacks, and victory is ours only when we SUBMIT to God's authority. Bro. Rick has started a series of sermons based upon Galatians 2:20. I think this verse is so pertinent at this time as a reminder to believers what the walk of faith is all about.

Serving God: What is Your Motivation?

Batterson relates: Listening to Bach's music is a rapturous experience, … [Read more...]

A God-Sized Victory


As I mentioned in worship a couple of weeks ago I have been reading a book by Mark Batterson entitled "All In." It's a challenging book rich in spiritual insights. In chapter 9 of his book, Batterson contrasts the daring nature of Jonathan with that of his father, King Saul, as recorded in I Samuel 14. The Israelites were once again facing their long-time foe, the Philistines who had an army that heavily outnumbered them. Saul was poised under a pomegranate tree meeting with his advisers — … [Read more...]
