    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.

    Ups and Downs

    From the Pastor’s Desk Surviving a trip to Six Flags with the youth has given me a deeper understanding of the ups and downs and twists of life. At times, we wish our lives could be like a simple train ride around the perimeter of the park, a simple whistle indicating when to ...

    I love Easter week. As we just celebrated Christ’s victory over death, I’m always taken back to that one Good Friday when I asked Jesus to take over my life. Going back in time, there was always a question that I would ask myself over and over. The question was: “If I ...
