We seem to have a lot of Holidays, maybe more than ever. But truth be told we do not hold all of them in the same level of esteem. There are religious holidays, which I would hope and pray rank very high with most. There are holidays to celebrate famous people- but as we now […]
A couple of weeks ago, Pastor Phil and I did back-to-back sermons with the same title, Do Not Be Afraid. It was by coincidence, but in retrospect, we both felt it was needed and it worked.

So, it didn’t […]
One of the ministries we have been blessed with over the years is our prayer chain. Each week they receive the prayers of the people from the list on Sunday, and they pray for those folks throughout the week.
