PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, As you can imagine the young people of Bethlehem were not lining up to go to college to study to be shepherds. Shepherding was one of the least glamorous jobs of all. The shepherds were on call 24/7. They needed to provide food and water for the sheep, protect the sheep, and take care of any need that might arise. The shepherds were around the sheep so much that they smelled like sheep. It was not…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Let’s take a stroll down memory lane. What was on your Christmas list when you were in elementary school? High school? What does your Christmas list look like this year? My guess is that as your lists between grade school and high school were different, so your list this year is considerably different than it was in back then. But even though the lists are different, there is a connection – hope! Hope in Jesus is…

But what about in your life? Who or what is…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Picture in your mind an orange tree. Got it? What kind of fruit is an orange tree going to produce? Easy answer. Picture in your mind someone who loves and trusts in Jesus. Got it? How is that person going to act, think, and talk? Easy answer. Jesus says in Matthew 7:16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? This weekend we are continuing our series…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, I cannot tell you how many times my parents told me, “Luck won’t get you anywhere, you have to persevere.” Back then I thought they meant high school, but that lesson has carried through the different seasons of my life. The definition of perseverance is “persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success”. Perseverance can be hard because it often takes time or patience and it is often uncomfortable mentally, physically, emotionally, or…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Genesis 6:11-12 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. Corruption typically happens because people are striving either for power, wealth, or comfort. For many power, wealth, or comfort is the “win” of life. But for Jesus the “win” came through giving up all of those things. He gave up everything. This weekend we are…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, John Chrysostom was a leader in the early Christian church. He was known for his preaching, public speaking, and writing. His straightforward speaking was not always well received. Reportedly he angered the Emperor Arcadius. Arcadius wanted to punish Chrysostom, so he brought in his counselors. One said, “Confiscate his property.” But one responded, “that will only hurt the poor to whom he gives all that he has.” Another said, “throw him in prison.” Someone responded, “no,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, The people in the Old Testament used several different words for worship with various meanings. Included in these meanings are hands of praise, boast, celebrate, dance, make music, confession, thanksgiving for things not yet received, bow down, new song, and loud shout. This week Pastor Frosty is going to bring us a fantastic message based on a psalm of praise, Psalm 100. And he is going to lead us to see: “what is the best kind…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, One child gets in trouble and blames his sibling. Maybe it goes something like, “He hit me first.” Blaming someone else or excusing ourselves is a common character trait of sinful people. It started with Adam and Eve. Adam blamed Eve and God in one sentence. “It was the woman you gave me,” he said to God. And it is still the same today. Often our reaction to sin is to blame someone else or excuse…
