Dear Church Family It takes “guts” to stand up for what you believe in.  To stand in the face of power and authority and seek justice and equality in a non-violent way is a very courageous and often dangerous position to take.  Am I talking about John Lewis who recently passed into glory.  You bet [...]

Dear Church Family, I confess…..wait for it…..if you are expecting me to say something that will be shocking, sorry to disappoint.  I confess:  I AM AN OPTIMIST!  And boy do we need a huge dose of optimism in our country right now.  In fact we need more optimists.

Dear Church Family, Terri and I were married in 1975.  That’s a long time ago, do the math.  We were mere college “kids.”  So, I have a question for all you married couples, whether you have been married for decades or for just a few years.  As a bride and groom were you ever more [...]

Dear Church Family, As I write this on Monday it is the official start to the 2020 Hurricane season and right now there is tropical disturbance over the Yucatan Peninsula which may develop into the first hurricane of the season.  Talk about overlooking something.  With what has gone on these past few months with the [...]

FROM THE PASTOR Dear Church Family, As many of you know I grew up in Florida and one of my favorite hobbies was surfing!  I lived just a few miles from the beach and even before I could drive I would grab my surfboard and hitchhike, yes that’s right, hitchhike, out to the beach.  Surfing [...]

Dear Church Family, They say change is good for you. They say change is inevitable and growth is optional. They say true life is lived when tiny changes occur. All these things are true but sometimes change sucks. Over the last few years we have seen a lot of change in the form of how [...]
