THINK ABOUT THIS AND THAT

John Piper once said, “Sin is what you do when your heart is not satisfied with God.” That is a sobering thought.  I might add that temptation is Satan’s way to make you dissatisfied with God. On Sunday we will explore the topic of temptation: what it is and how we can withstand it with God’s...

Next Monday our nation celebrates Labor Day.  It is a day we recognize the hard work that so many people have put in. Crown Ministries estimates that over a 50-year span, the average American spends about 100,000 hours working.  Genesis 2:15 tells us that “The Lord God took the man and...

In just about one week we will have our Mega Sports Camp outreach.  I applaud the work that Mark and Kimberly Kovach have done in carrying out the vision for this, and I know that there are countless others who have worked diligently in preparing for this event.  As I write this week I...

Next Sunday we are going to have the first of a series of Missions Emphasis Sundays.  The purpose of these meetings is to hear what God is doing around the world. Our COGs show us what God is doing here in our immediate area, but Missions Sundays are intended to show us what God is doing in...

This Sunday, May 31st our COGs will meet.  These Community Outreach Groups are designed to help us become more involved in reaching out with the Good News of Christ. Many of you might be unaware of the scope of our outreaches through the COGs, so several weeks ago we had a meeting with...
