I find myself in a strange situation these days. While the end of my ministry at Community Church is coming at the end of May, I still have a great desire to see this church grow and flourish. That involves planning and carrying out outreaches which bring people to our church.  One of last...

From the Pastor

It’s the week before Christmas and if you’re like me you’ve still got a lot to do to get ready for the Big Day.  It reminds me of a joke I once heard. “Why is Christmas just like a day at the office?”  Answer: “You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit.” That’s...

FROM THE PASTOR Recently I’ve found a new Bible translation called the Easy to Read Translation. It was originally published as the English Version for the Deaf (EVD) by Baker Books.

During my devotions this morning I read an article by James Banks called “The Perfect Prayer Partner” in Our Daily Bread. Many of you may have read it as well.  Dr. Banks, who is from Durham, NC, wrote this: “We never pray alone, because Jesus is praying for us. He hears us as we pray, and...

On the Friday of Labor Day weekend I picked Pat up at her school for a quick getaway and we drove to Winston-Salem to see our grandson (and his parents).
