PASTOR’S MESSAGE  Dear Friends, Allegations. Threats. It was a really tough week for Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh. All over what supposedly happened 35 years ago. I don’t know what happened 35 years ago between those two if anything. So I will not excuse or blame anyone. But what if what you did in high school or college was brought to the public’s attention? How would that go for you? What if what you said, or even just…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE  Dear Friends, Don’t leave. A number of years ago, a young man was very frustrated because God wasn’t answering his prayers the way he wanted God to answer them. So in his anger, he left. He walked away, quitting church and Christianity. Last Sunday night, the Chicago Bears were pummeling the Green Bay Packers. It wasn’t even close. And the Packers’ best player was carted off the field before half time. A lot of Packer fans left…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, In recent blog posts, we have been looking at “acceptable sins.” These are sins that have so permeated our culture they seem acceptable, but they are not. In this post, I challenge your hearts with a description of a core sin of our culture: lust. More people, both men and women, are viewing pornography than ever before. When it comes to pornography, the excuses sound like this: it’s not hurting anyone, it’s not someone else’s business.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Words are powerful. God said, “Let there be,” and there was (Genesis 1:3). Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17). Human words aren’t that powerful when compared to the words of God, but they are impactful.Gossip seems like a necessary part of our everyday life. Gossip flourishes at every level of society. It seems to be an “acceptable sin.” We cannot protect ourselves against it because…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Do you know of any “acceptable” sins? There aren’t any. But sometimes, we live like there are. One example of this is envy. In Matthew 20, a landowner goes out and hires various workers at various times of the day, from very early in the morning until it is almost quitting time. At the end of the day, he pays them. Whether they worked twelve hours or one hour, they all got paid the same amount…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Any struggles with temptation this summer? The devil doesn’t climb the fence at the highest spot. He comes to the fence where it is the lowest. The point is, know your weaknesses because that is likely the place where Satan will attack you. The Bible says that the devil is like a prowling lion looking for someone to devour. While a lion may look harmless in the distance of the cavernous zoo display, it would be…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, ‘Tis the season for back-to-school shopping, and depending on who you are, you may or may not be happy about that. I’m not much of a shopper. I’m more of a buyer. I have in mind what I want and the price I’m willing to pay before I ever enter the store. So, I’m not much into looking around, let alone actually touching the clothes or trying out the toys. If the store has what I’m…

He has given us everything even though we are not deserving, “For His mercy endures…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Does your conscience ever bother you? Remember grace. Grace is undeserved love. It’s “while we were still sinners Christ died for us”  and “the Lord our righteousness.” Grace covers all the A-B-Cs of sin.

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Hearing someone call your name can mean lots of emotions: pride, confusion, fear, and joy. Fifteen years ago this past week, the call we got shook my family to its core when our daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  Jacky’s heart and my heart were already about waist high that morning, because we knew what the doctors were looking for. But when the doctors called us over and the diagnosis came… our hearts splashed onto…
