Back to Church

Back to Church It has been a long two months, but we are finally back to church. I want to thank you all for your support and faithfulness toward your pastors and church during this time. We are truly blessed by God to have each other and I believe that it will only make us stronger to face what lies ahead. If you are like me, then you probably have been reminded to be thankful for many things that we…

Time to Shine!

Time to Shine! If absence makes the heart grow fonder, then when we are able to reunite I’m certain that our church will be so much stronger and more focused on what God has planned for us in the future. I’m glad we get to use technology to communicate, love, and encourage one another for now; but I pray that sooner than later we can be face to face again. Stay strong in your faith and love your neighbor, because…

Red and Pink

Red and Pink Two colors that really go with the month of February are red and pink. We see advertisements plastered with those colors as ribbons around chocolate boxes and flowers to be sent to our true love, etc. But those colors have Biblical significance as well. Red represents the love of God perfectly demonstrated in the Blood of Jesus. Pink signifies a right relationship between a person and God, which was only made possible by Christ’s sacrifice. Keep God…

Tis the Season

December is here and many people have already finished their Christmas gift shopping, although I’ve barely started. Tis the season for family gatherings and memories to be shared, but the true purpose we celebrate is because God gave to the world the most important gift in the universe, His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. He gave because He loved us, so make sure love is your motivation for giving to bless others; and share His Gift by making Christ the…

Fall Preparation

Fall Preparation As October arrives, most of my plans to get ready for winter will be underway, from bagging leaves to getting the snowblower ready. Preparation is critical not only for surviving the colder months, but also to make sure our spiritual things are in order. We have a unique responsibility as Christians to show Christ when we get together with friends and family. Whether we are going to a fair or hosting a meal we should be ready to…

Wellness Check

Wellness Check August is National Wellness Month, but I’m not talking about eating right and getting into shape. I recommend that we take this time to check our spiritual wellness. Ask God every day this month to reveal to you what you are lacking in your spiritual diet and how you can exercise your faith more than you have been. If we fail to put what God gives us, as in our knowledge or talents, into action, then we are…

To Independence

To Independence July is a great month, long sunny days (I hope) and heat. This month though is known for July 4th our Independence, fireworks, BBQ’s and the like. Have you ever looked at the meaning of Independence? It means freedom from control. As I think of it, so does the Cross. We are free from the control of our sinful nature. Romans 6:11b (NIV) “count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” We have a…

Warm Welcome

Warm Welcome Summer is just around the corner and I’m sure you are excited, as I am to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather. I notice that when the temperatures are on the rise, people seem to be out and about more. When you are going into or out of a store, you can walk instead of run to and from your car passing people along the way. Maybe you walk or bike around your neighborhood or go places…

May Flowers

May Flowers Dear Church Family, They say April showers bring May flowers, I can’t wait. Have you ever considered the role flowers play in May? There are more flowers sold in May than any other. Why? As the ad goes “nothing says I love you more than flowers.” Mothers all over this world will receive flowers to say I love you. Flowers also say “we will always remember”. Memorial Day is set aside for that purpose. Dedicated to our fallen…

He is Risen

Easter is coming; it’s much later than usual this year and that’s fine with me. I much prefer a late Easter especially living in New England since celebrating Easter with snow on the ground just doesn’t feel right to me. Yet, even though the date of Easter changes each year, one thing always remains constant. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Heb 13:8) His resurrection from the grave defeated the powers of Satan, the world, and…
