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.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, In an international cross-country race in December of 2012, a Kenyan athlete was winning. Unfortunately, he became confused with the race signage. He stopped, thinking he had crossed the finish line and won the race. But the finish line was actually a few yards away. The Spanish runner in second place was coming up quickly. He knew where the real finish line was. He started shouting to the runner ahead of him to keep going. But…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, As a little boy, I was afraid of the dark. As I got older, the fears kept coming. I was afraid of failing tests, getting cut from the team, not getting a Call into the ministry, of failing as a husband and father, that our daughter was going to die. Do you see a pattern? How about you? Do you have any fears? This weekend we are continuing our series David: The (im)Perfect King. In this…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, How are you going to celebrate your freedom this Independence Day? As we look around this Independence Day, we may not see freedom amidst the widespread slavery to guilt we feel within ourselves and see in others. Guilt isn’t remedied by ideology. It is only fixed by Jesus. I may not know the sins that are plaguing you, but I know what Jesus did. He died and paid for your sin, whatever it is. If you…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, We were doing some deep cleaning around the house not long ago and we ran into a few bins filled with pictures. One was a picture of eight year old me in my football uniform. When I saw that picture, my mind raced back to the brown dry grass football field of Album Park that we used to play on every Saturday morning in the fall. Parents would line the field, cheering us on. An announcer…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, What if you were offered a job where you are in charge? You set the vision, goals, and manage the whole thing. This job just might be the most important job you could ever have. And it will likely be the most difficult job you ever have. It is an honorable job, but it can also be very humiliating. Any idea what job I am talking about? Parenting. Parenting can be exceptionally hard. No two kids…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Truett Cathy was the founder of Chick-Fil-A restaurants. The business had a very humble beginning in 1946 with one small restaurant called The Dwarf Grill.  It was in this little restaurant that Truett and his brother came up with the chicken sandwich that so many of us enjoy six days a week. It took 21 more years before the first Chick-Fil-A restaurant was established in Atlanta. In the years that followed, Chick-Fil-A became a southern restaurant…
