Pastor’s Pen

        Have you ever noticed that the only people who truly welcome change are wet babies? Two guys were drifting out in the sea in a raft and things didn’t look good for their future. Finally one of them, frightened, began to pray: “Oh Lord, I’ve broken most of your commandments. I’ve got some pretty bad habits – I drink, I curse, I steal, I treat people like dirt. But if my life is spared now, I promise that I’ll…

Switch Youth Group

There is a danger in our society today. It has the power to direct our lives toward life or death, and has already attached itself to every living person!         Figure out what I’m talking about? Your tongue! James 3 says that your tongue is like the bit you put in a horse’s mouth—with it you can steer a powerful animal the direction you want to go. Or like the rudder of a giant ship—with that relatively small piece you can…

Randy’s Parchment

        Living in the rural area that we do, most of us are quite familiar with the growth process of both plants and animals on many of our local farms.  Growth in the physical realm, whether it be of plants, animals or humans, is both expected and anticipated, with the expectation of new life or fruit.  Fertilization from both the male and female entities must take place for growth to begin, and then water and nutrients are given for…

Our character, Al Urgic (Brian…

Royal Rangers Boys Program

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”                                2 Timothy 1:7         The school year is winding down, and spring is winding up! Looking back over the last year, a lot of fun was had and a lot of scripture learned. Memorizing Bible scripture was something we did a lot of. We’re proud of how the boys did!        Looking back to March 17, everyone enrolled in Royal Rangers was able…

Mpact Girls Program

        In February, the church basement became a construction zone for our construction teams to build a graham cracker house or boat or whatever their imagination could think of!  Not only did our construction teams have a great time, but we raised money for missions!  This money will be brought to Great Girls Escape camp to support the ministry of Damascus Road Project. This ministry is dedicated to fighting the evil of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. We will be…

Women’s Ministry

        While sitting in the dentist office last week I thought that a person really needs to keep up on their brushing  and flossing in order to have a good check-up with the dentist.  The same thing is true with Jesus and your spiritual life.  In order to be prepared and ready for what comes your way, you need to do daily reading in God’s word and be in prayer each day.  Just like brushing your teeth each day, you…
