Thoughts On Palm Sunday

  By: Carren Marvin You may or may not celebrate the Lenten season, Palm Sunday, or Easter. I have mixed feelings about American holiday traditions, but the week before Easter seems a welcome opportunity to reflect on a significant day in Christian history.   On the day that has become known to us as Palm…

What Is My Purpose?

Retirement is that day in the far future that everyone looks forward to. No alarm clocks, no rush hour traffic, no meetings. But I loved my work in education. I loved learning myself and felt it was meaningful and gave me a sense of purpose. When the day for me to retire came in December,…

A Fraction of a Christian 

  By: Haley Wilson It is so very easy to become a fraction of a Christian, but is that what we are commanded to do? Can you be a Christian a quarter of the time? Are you giving half the effort God deserves? Are you only coming to services half the time? Are you attending…

Living by Faith

By: Craig Collier Many people have a favorite book of the Bible—one that they turn to regularly to help them cope with troubles, to remind them of important truths, or to rejuvenate their faith.  For me, that book is Habakkuk.  That is probably not near the top of the list for most people, but I have come…

I Can Be Your Friend

By: Amy Cavataio God truly blessed us to have been part of such a loving congregation during Bill’s battle with cancer. The outpouring of physical, emotional and spiritual support means more than you’ll ever know. We are told in Prov. 17:17, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” I praise God…

Practice Makes Permanent

 by Carren Marvin As a high school English teacher, I try to inspire teenagers to adopt the lifetime habit of reading. To help them, I use the analogy of an athlete in training. “You can’t get better at your three-point shot or have the stamina to run a marathon without a lot of practice,” I…

Because I’m Happy…

By: Paulette Bush “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice”,Philippians 4:4. Rejoice:  to be joyful, to be happy. “He who trusts in the Lord, happy is he”, Proverbs 20:16. Happy, like: “sing and be happy”; breathe happy (Febreeze); “sleep happy” (Mattress-firm)? No. Rejoice and be happy in the Lord! “Happy are the people…

Where Are You God?

By: Becky Traywick Where Are You God? Isaiah 60:21b “I am the Lord; in its time I will hasten it.” Whenever I go through difficult times I often wonder “God, where are you?” I’ve even had the misconception that I have sinned in some way that the Lord has turned a blind eye to my…

We Are Family

By: Haley Wilson Galatians 2:6 “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” In our walk, the weight of the world can be hard and get extremely heavy to bear. We have jobs, school, family, problems, problems, and more problems. Not only do we have to deal with our problems, we have to deal…

I Can Do Anything

First of all, let me give honor to God who’s the Head of my life! About two months ago I made a commitment to completely surrender everything to God. And from that moment to build a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to work on being able to testify what He…
