They were and are a “great cloud of witnesses” in allowing the light of God to shine through them so we may follow the path to Christ and in being the church.  We journey together with Christ and each other so that God’s kin-dom (God’s kingdom connecting all together) … Read More

It was a gift of God’s grace to be away with Lew for his mother’s memorial service in Ohio. We were blessed by your thoughts and prayers for our journey and our time with family. We heard stories about the uncles teaching the cousins to “parachute” out of the barn loft without a parachute and other practical jokes. We heard … Read More

Pastor Debbie is on vacation and Charlie Robinson has gladly agreed to preach and enter our weekly pastors blog.  Enjoy! Jason had just come home for the first time from the hospital.

We’re into Legos in September. It is all about connecting! Every Lego block has wholes and knobs so that the blocks can be connected and something created. A Lego is not designed to stand alone.
