Be Thankful

by

Back in 1988, a Polish railway worker named Jan Grzebski was hit by a train. He survived … but just barely. For the next 19 years (until the year 2007), Grzebski was in a coma. He awoke in 2007 to a whole new world. Nineteen years earlier, Poland was a communist state. Grzebski noted that […]

The Missed Call And The Spilled Drink

by

I recently read a story about a man who attended a worship service with his wife for the first time. He forgot to switch off his phone and it unfortunately rang during the opening prayer. More unfortunately, the preacher scolded him. Even worse, the members admonished him after the service for interrupting the silence. As […]

Why Bring Your Kids To Church?

Once again, you are sitting in worship or Bible study, and your child is restless. Perhaps they’re even a little boisterous and noisy. You try to calm them down, and things just seem to get worse.

It was an awesome time that God used to draw us closer as a youth group and recharge our spiritual batteries.

Running From The Savior

by

There’s a story about a woman who was driving down the street one evening when she noticed in her rearview mirror that a huge truck seemed to be following her a little too closely. She sped up in an attempt to create some more distance between the two vehicles only to discover that the truck […]

Work Camp 2021

God was glorified during Work Camp 2021! This year, we had 60+ people come and help to serve our community. Thirty-six women worked extremely hard to keep us fed throughout the week. We built six ramps in four days! Several houses were power washed. Gutters were cleaned. Dozens of trees were cut down (they never […]

How The Apostles Died

by

All of the Apostles suffered intense persecution, and all but one died because of their faith. This should serve as our permanent reminder that our present sufferings don’t compare to the abuse that they experienced. Matthew was killed by a sword wound in Ethiopia. Mark was dragged by Horses through the streets of Alexandria, Egypt […]
