Have you ever imagined living in a society in which you could not access God’s Word? For us, that scenario is impossible to imagine.

Sunday morning was a time of joy, hearing the stories from the mission trips in June. I hope you were encouraged and challenged by those who shared. Will you join us next Summer? Or even before then! We take trips to Mexico, Honduras and other places. Start asking God where He would have you go. The answer just might be across the street....Keep Reading

I was warned about becoming friends with members of the church you serve. Fortunately, I neglected that advice and have made friends within the churches I have pastored. Sometimes it can lead to challenges and heartbreak, but the rewards are absolutely worth the risk....Keep Reading
