A Prayer for Our Nation

Our loving heavenly Father, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, in these special times let us be mindful of your Sovereign rule. The Psalmist said it long ago “if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3). You sit above all the affairs of man.  You reign over all, [...]

Expanding Our Vision

A few weeks ago, we shared with you some specific new ideas and plans for our church, plans which are not really that new but may sound like they are.

Walking in the Truth

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” (3 John 1:4 ESV) “There is nothing more contrary to God than a lie.” (Thomas Watson) How do you think about truth and lies?  Is lying that big of a deal?  Is telling the truth really all that important? [...]

Receiving the Supper

“For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” 1 Corinthians 11:26 We live in a day and age when shallowness and triviality seem prevalent in the church.  To be serious and reverent is often seen as old-fashioned or even legalistic.  But the Bible [...]
