    I was walking our dog Millie early Sunday morning before services and saw daffodils coming up in the neighborhood! You know what that means! From the hard, cold ground of winter flowers will be blooming soon. From the gray, cold, seemingly lifeless winter, trees will be budding, migrating birds will be returning, and the earth will be coming to life everywhere, reminding us that what appears to be lifeless in the winter season isn’t lifeless at all!

    What are the two times of the year that people are most likely to come together with a church? You got it — Christmas and Easter! When you think about it, what better times to come together with a church than those two times, when pastors and churches in their messages and music have the privilege of celebrating the Good News of Jesus’ birth and His death and resurrection! And our prayer is always that someone’s attendance on those high, holy days will be the opportunity for God to speak and God to work and God to save, that may change a life forever!

  • Lenten Season, Our Call to Pray

    Pastor Ben

    Feb 8, 2016

    Remembering why we’re doing what we’re doing is one of the keys to staying on track, maintaining passion, and not getting discouraged. Why are we doing what we’re doing as His church? Because God has chosen us to set the world right, to spread the good news of Jesus, and to be His ambassadors. And friends, every lesson you teach, every casserole you cook, every honest day’s work can be a means of life-changing grace if done in Jesus’ name! Christ said He would “build His church,” and he’s invited us to be a part of what He’s doing. Let’s accept the invitation, let’s respond to the call! Let’s follow Jesus and make Him Lord of our lives every single day.
