  • The Spirit Of Life

    Contributed on Sep 24, 2018

  • Spiritually Paralyzed

    Contributed on Jul 9, 2018

    Spiritual dryness, or spiritual paralysis can slip up on us when we least expect it. How does our spiritual life compare to the plight of the crippled man by the Pool of Bethesda?

The next Sunday we talked about how the Holy Spirit indwells you. We have looked at how Jesus is the Living Water in our lives and that if we accept ...read more

  • Joy In Work

    Contributed on Apr 2, 2018

    A short devotional about renewing our joy in the work we do as if seeing it from God's point of view.

    You’ve probably worked with a guy like Bill. You’re working away when you hear him say out loud, “Just trying to make it to Friday.” Outside his cubicle, co-workers laugh.

    Last Sunday evening in our evening service, we discussed in detail the importance of having a quiet time with the Lord.

    Grandma’s Hands When I stand at the graveside for an elderly person, I think about the life they have lived, that dash between the birth date and date of death.

    Contributed on Mar 7, 2012

    HOT AIR When we were building this sanctuary we were discussing whether to put paper towel dispensers in the new rest rooms or those hot-air hand dryers.
