A Mission Field Almost Five Hours Away

On Sunday, July 25th at approximately 1pm, some of us will leave the church parking lot and travel to Hollis, Oklahoma.

We will work on various indoor and outdoor projects on the property belonging to Westview Boys Home, a wonderful mission organization that our church has supported for many years.


Created for Fellowship

Years ago, I used to meet a group of guys at six every Saturday morning to play golf.  I didn’t have any children in those days.  I can barely remember life before children…


The Ignored Chapter

Did you know that those who practice Judaism, people who are traditionally, but not limited to, Jewish people who worship our God but reject Jesus as the Christ, completely avoid Isaiah chapter 53?

It shouldn’t be surprising, but I find it amazing that the chapter is skipped entirely in Judaism yearly reading programs.  You don’t have to believe me; Just conduct an online search and you can easily verify this for yourself.


Fight for Encouragement

I have never witnessed more discouragement that what I see now in the world around me.  It never surprises me to see people who don’t know Jesus discouraged, but for Christians, this should not be.

I’m not saying that Christians are immune to discouragement, we certainly are not, but we should have a distinct advantage over those who are not Christians.


Spiritual Maturity

In 1 John 2:12-14, John writes,

12 I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. 13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. 14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.


Summer Plans

How do you plan this summer to bring glory to Christ? 

Here are some suggestions:


Do You Know Someone?

Do you know someone who used to worship at this church?  Do you know someone who used to visit?  Was it in the recent past or the distant past?

Are you willing to invite that person or persons to come back?


The First Four Words

To me, some of the most important words in the Bible are the first four, Genesis 1:1,

In the beginning God…


The Last Week

What would you do if you only had one week left to live?  This week we begin a new series in Matthew that I’ve entitled, “The Last Week.”

In this new series, as we progress through the Book of Matthew, we will examine through the eyes of Matthew (and borrowing some details from Mark, Luke and John) what Jesus did in his last week on earth in human form.


The Bold

At the end of Matthew chapter twenty, there are a couple of blind men who Matthew tells us in vs 30,

…cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!”

I think it’s too easy to quickly pass over a story like this.  We reason that, yes, they cried out for Jesus to help them, but wouldn’t anybody who was blind do the same?
