Global Mission Conference

September 19, 2014 | by: Brenda Ellison |0 Comments

In July 2004 our family flew across a good part of our world to embark on an adventure that would change our lives. Our sons were 4 and 7 years old and we took them on our first family mission trip to Ukraine. Faith, flexibility, and adaptability were qualities we thought we had before this trip. Soon we found we knew nothing about such things. God taught us so much about Himself on this trip. We had no control over where we went, our schedules, or what we... Keep Reading

Dry Times in the Word

September 11, 2014 | by: Pastor Byron Peters |0 Comments

You probably know the feeling. You wake up one morning, flip open your Bible, and think to yourself, “For the last two weeks I’ve been reading my Bible just like always, but now that I think about it, I really haven’t gotten a lot out of it lately.” Why is that? Why is it that sometimes it seems every word on the pages of the Bible shimmers with glory and application, and other times it’s like eating Shredded Wheat without th... Keep Reading

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Cor 1:3-4 (ESV) Do you remember how you felt when you learned that he died? Can you recall the many times you have been ambushed by a sound, a smell, a song that always reminded you of... Keep Reading

Discovering Beauty

August 22, 2014 | by: Caleb Wilkie |0 Comments

This summer, I rediscovered the hobby of my youth: drawing.For much of my leisure when I was a boy, my face would be hovering all too close to the paper, carefully observing the stroke of the graphite, obsessed with obtaining the perfect line and image. School has been a real pain for art. Summer classes, however, have allowed me some freedom to explore that wonderful medium in new ways. It’s a funny thing about art in that it is the constant pursui... Keep Reading

Why Should We Prepare for the Lord’s Supper?

August 14, 2014 | by: Rick Hawkes |0 Comments

1 Cor 11:27-30: Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. Westminster Larger CatechismQ171 How are they th... Keep Reading

More than Verbal Assent

July 31, 2014 | by: Peter Brinkerhoff |0 Comments

A couple weeks ago, a friend said to me: “Instead of asking yourself ‘what do I believe about Jesus?’ – ask yourself: ‘what does my life say about what I believe about Jesus?’ Only when you answer that question truthfully will you know what you actually believe.” Yes, I realize that loving a friend sometimes requires telling the cold, hard truth, but this question was jarring. No cop-outs here. My life does reveal... Keep Reading

Considering the Lilies

July 10, 2014 | by: Kelli Allen |0 Comments

A very smart person once said that objects in motion tend to stay in motion. I can attest to that truth in the context of my task-oriented mind. My brain seems to engage in planning mode before my feet hit the floor in the morning and can easily continue on that track until my feet are back in the bed at night. I feel at home with Scriptures about productive ants (Prov. 30:25), but considering the lilies (Luke 12:27) makes me a bit uncomfortable. In our g... Keep Reading
