On the table outside of Nikki’s office are Bible Studies and Devotion books. These are studies we have received as samples from Lifeway and cover many topics. Please take as many as you want. We don’t want to discard them if someone could use them.


Don’t forget to check out Brother David’s Mid-Week Devotion on the book of Psalms. They are uploaded each Wednesday on the sermon page.

From Our Pastor

“Who can you trust?”  How often have you heard or asked that question?  It seems as if every day brings news of duplicity, fraud, failure, and irresponsibility.  All of us have had the experience of being disappointed by someone whom we trusted.

God plainly tells us not to put our trust in man.  All men are sinners.  Some men are wicked.  Many men are compromisers often with the worst evil imaginable.

However, the Bible also warns us about putting our ultimate trust in “good” people.  Why?  Because they are only human.  Psalm 146:3-4 read, “Do not trust in princes, in mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.  His spirit departs, he returns to the earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.”  Even good people with the best intentions cannot be our ultimate source of help.

Where can we look for help?  Psalm 146 gives us the answer.  “How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God” (verse 5).

Why is God worthy of such trust?  Verse 6 reminds us of God’s sovereign power in being the maker of heaven, earth, the sea, and all that is in them.  God created everything by His unlimited power and rules over it to fulfill His plan.  There is nothing that can hinder God’s desire to help us.

We can also trust God because He is faithful (v. 6b).  There is no situation that is outside of God’s concern for us. Verses 7b-9 describe God meeting the needs of those who are wronged, hungry, imprisoned, blind, bowed down, strangers, fatherless, and widowed.  No matter what we face, God is concerned and involved.

Last, we can trust God because He is eternal (v. 10).  This means more than God will always exist.  It means that time has no effect on God.  He will not lose any power or capability in time or eternity.  He will always be the Almighty God.

Even the best intentional people will fail us at times.  God never will.  Trust Him.  He will never let you down.
