From the Pastor, September 17th 2020

Dear Church Family, In the next few weeks we will be closing out our series; Christ in You, The Hope of Glory.”  We’ll conclude with a deep dive into understanding what the Bible says about spiritual gifts.  Next to views of the “end times,” spiritual gifts is one of the most misunderstood areas in the [...]

From the Pastor, September 10th 2020

Dear Church Family, “Rain, rain, go away, come again another day….”  It’s another rainy day today and it appears it will last for the next 24 hours at least.  But at least the NFL football season begins this week AND the Cubs are still in first place in their division! Well enough of trivial things.  [...]

From the Pastor, September 1st 2020

Dear Church Family, It’s the first of September and school has begun and summer is over.  Soon we’ll see the weather change, getting cooler, leaves changing colors (and falling).  Eventually, as time marches on, we’ll see a resolution to the Covid-19 pandemic and hopefully things will “return to normal” at church.  Time will tell.  But [...]

From the Pastor, August 25th 2020

Dear Church Family, Thom Rainer is a SBC church consultant, cultural influencer, researcher, and extensive writer/author.  I recently read an article he wrote entitled; “Five Types of Church Members Who Will Not Return after the Quarantine.”  Obviously I read it with interest and came away with a sobering outlook on the future of the church.  [...]

Dear Church Family Viclav Havel who was President of the Czech Republic and quite the writer and philosopher as well as a committed Christian said this: “The tragedy of modern man is not that he knows less and less about the meaning of his own life, but that it bothers him less and less.”  I [...]

From the Pastor, August 12th 2020

Dear Church Family Has anyone ever asked you what your “disposition” is?  Not sure what I mean.  Well let’s look at the dictionary definition; one’s customary frame of mind, or as one’s nature or temperament.”  Your disposition is not something you occasionally choose to do; your disposition is who you are and how you behave [...]

From the Pastor, July 28th 2020

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 [...]

From the Pastor, July 23 2020

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. Among my personal heroes is Lee Trevino, [...]

From the Pastor, July 8th 2020

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 [...]
