PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Some of have left the Christian Church because they heard that Christianity hinders scientific progress. But Scripture shows that Jesus loved the natural world and taught us to investigate it so that we might know the Creator even better. When we look at Jesus’ words, we will be encouraged to study science, and discover how the world works. Did you know that many leading scientists of today are Christians? Francis S. Collins, a physician and the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, When you read through the Gospel accounts you see Jesus interacting and mixing with all kinds of people. Is there an account or type of account that stands out to you? Here are some of the accounts of faith that stand out to me: The woman who was healed after twelve years of bleeding (Matthew 9), Martha confessing that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God who is to come into the world (John 11),…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, We live in a time of division. It’s like we can come up with any reason to dislike or even hate someone. Teams people cheer for, political parties, view on mask-wearing, decision on vaccinations, gender, and race… all of these cause division between people. At the time of the early Christian church, there was opportunity for extraordinary division.  There were five groups of people: Jews, who thought they were better than everyone else; Gentiles, who thought…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Have you ever missed a text message? Maybe it was because your notifications were turned off. Maybe it was because your phone was turned off. Or maybe it was because you were in one of the stores where cell service is next to impossible. Whatever the reason, you missed the text. I remember being in Pick-N-Save with a friend. We purchased everything on our list, only to find out once we got outside that his wife texted…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Things don’t always turn out as we expect them. For example, the craft on Pinterest looks great but what you made doesn’t look anything like it. Your team loses even though they were a heavy favorite. You go to check your email but there is no internet connection. You learn that your favorite pizza place no longer does delivery. Sometimes our expectations are not met because we have unrealistic expectations. I still think I can put…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Some things have changed. How many of you remember… Being tethered to the wall while talking on a corded phone? Having to get up to turn the dial on the TV to change the channel? Kids staying out until after dark playing outside, and no one worrying about it? Many things have changed. You may argue that these changes are for the better, or they might be for the worse. But one thing never changes. Jesus…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Here’s a tale with a truth.  There were two men sitting in nice chairs waiting just outside the pearly gates. One man had a suitcase and a large bag. The other man just waited patiently. The one with suitcase and the large bag began to show the other man what was inside his bags. He pulled out diplomas, letters of accommodation, letters of recommendation, pictures of his children, pictures of the beautiful homes he lived in,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, I’m not sure what your parenting experience is but parenting is a piece of cake . . . until you become a parent. When I wasn’t a parent, I knew all the answers. But then, I became a parent. Parenting is tough work. When we parent, we can be too stern and we can be too hands-off. On top of that, each child is different and so we need to adjust how we parent each of…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, What do you do when you sin? Most people try to cover sin up. They hope nobody will notice and so they pretend it doesn’t exist. People attempt to cover up their sin by… Denying they sinned. I didn’t do it. Rationalizing their sin. Everybody is doing it. It is not that bad. No one will get hurt. (That is a really big lie, by the way.) Blaming someone else or the circumstance. He did it.…
