A Note From Dan

I remember when my kids were small and they were learning what it was like to trust. I would be in the pool and would want them to jump in the water to me. They were afraid to be dependent on me to keep them from going under water. When they finally jumped, that helped them to develop trust in me and each time they jumped that trust became stronger. Our relationship with Christ grows as we learn to trust. Trusting builds trust. Just like with my children, this trust starts out small and grows … [Read more...]

The dogwoods and the azaleas are beautiful and it is … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan

For the past three weeks we have had rainy Sundays, but the spirit in our worship and Bible Study has been anything but rainy. God has really rained down His spirit on us as we have worshiped together. Sunday we were reminded of a familiar passage in Mark chapter 2 of the men who took the paralyzed man to Jesus. Because of the crowd they could not even get close to Jesus so they lowered him through the roof. They went to great extremes to get him to Jesus. We were reminded by this passage the we … [Read more...]
