From Our Family and Music Minister | This week, we celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. The 4th of July is usually associated with family gatherings, picnics, fireworks, parades, and barbecues. However, we cannot celebrate our independence as a nation without remembering those who sacrificed for our freedom today. So many men and women lost loved ones trying to have a better future for their families. We must remember that freedom in the United States was not a free gift. It had a significant cost.

From Our Family and Music Minister | As a child, one of my favorite summer activities was swimming. But before I knew how to swim, my dad got us a little kiddy pool that he kept in the backyard all summer. One hot afternoon, I ran out the back door and went to jump in the pool, when I came to a sudden stop and saw a pool full of creatures with claws. I later learned that these were crawdads mixed in with a few crabs the neighbors’ teenage son had caught and was trying to keep alive until they cooked them.

From Our Pastor | When we think about the direction and focus of our lives, few things have more impact than our priorities.  Yes, we have responsibilities, commitments, and obligations, but most of those are shaped by our priorities.

From Our Pastor | As we live our lives, there is nothing more important than experiencing God’s presence.  We desperately need His light in times of confusion, His guidance in decisions and His strength in trials.  We need Him for the meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in life.  We need Him.

From Our Family And Music Minister | I love to watch competitions and people compete, especially if I have someone for whom to root. One thing I find entertaining is how quickly someone jumps from supporting a losing team to a winning team instead of remaining loyal. If they were true fans, they would be fans no matter how well they did. They would stay through the thick and thin no matter the sacrifice. When it comes to a task that God puts on your heart, how hard is it for you to remain loyal to the task when adversity strikes?
