Staying In touch with God, Family, Church family, and the Community during this Pandemic

I do not know about you, but I see that I am a person of routine. This is becoming more difficult for me as I wade through these days surrounded by social distancing. To begin with, it was a “change of pace," but the new has worn off. I can see some good things that have come out of this time. I see that families are spending more time together. Without being able to go as we please, we find ourselves at home and spending time with our families and finding new ways, or in some cases old ways to … [Read more...]

Who Will We Reach?

“I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else's foundation, but as it is written, ’Those who have never been told of him will see, and those who have never heard will understand.’” — Romans 15:20–21 The apostle Paul knew who was supposed to be reached with the gospel.

What do you cultivate?

The last three to four weeks we have had some beautiful spring days, of course we have had a few stormy days as well. However, for me the sunny mild tepid days overshadow the threatening weather of Easter Sunday and April 19th. After the rain storms the grass is greener, the flowers are blossoming, and the garden plants are thriving! Mid-March I planted my spring/summer garden. It is a small raised bed (8’ x 8’) complete with 2 rows of green beans, radishes, yellow squash, zucchini, bell … [Read more...]

We are Still the Church

As I walk around the church facilities it is quiet. The ministries that once occupied these rooms are on hold and it is painfully quiet to me. You might say that the church is ‘on hold’ because of this pandemic but that is far from the truth. Times like this really show us that the church truly is the people not a building. From our Sunday morning online services, Zoom and group calls Sunday morning Sunday School, Wednesday night online bible study, and the many ministries going on around our … [Read more...]
