    Faith vs. Logic

    “For we live by faith, not by sight.” – 2 Corinthians 5:7 I have always said that faith and human logic do not mix. The reason I say this is because when I think about it, my logic tells me that my reach is limited to what my eyes can see. My faith ...

    From the Pastor’s Desk By the time you read this, Halloween will be over and we will be moving on to Thanksgiving and looking forward to Christmas. It seems like the year is flying by as we go from one activity to the next, barely stopping to take a breath and smell the roses. ...

    “God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.” – Hebrews 6:10 The Great Commission that Jesus gave us, His children, was to go and make disciples of all nations. When I hear those ...

    Light of the World

    From the Pastor’s Desk Light is a universal symbol for God and truth. Throughout Scripture, references to light defeating darkness and overcoming it abound. In movie-making, a famous phrase is “lights, camera, action!” It is a reminder that nothing happens until the lights hit the scene. It is the light that makes it possible ...

  • Sweeper

    August 20, 2019


    From the Pastor’s Desk Sometimes when I am looking for inspiration God surprises me, in a good way. Recently, a parent walked in with a bunch of nails and screws they had found on the street, which is not at all surprising given the construction going on across the street. As a problem ...

    Good News of the Holy Spirit

    “However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you (into close fellowship with you); but if I ...
