    , “If your church was removed tomorrow from your neighborhood, from the community, would anybody notice?” I know you would notice, but what about the people in our community?

    Salt~N~Light Witnessing Pastor Glenn Newton July 7, 2002 "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?

    A short vesper or devotional on keeping your light burning for Christ. It uses the lighthouse as an example.

I have considerably ...read more

    Developing a Disciple’s Attitude In a classic comic, Calvin and Hobbes are talking about the New Year when Calvin says, “I’m getting disillusioned with these new years.

  • The Gladness Of Sadness Series

    based on 49 ratings
     | 14,323 views

    In one of the most profound, and paradoxical texts in the Bible, Jesus declares in Matthew 5:4: “Blessed are those who mourn; for they will be comforted.”

    The Gladness of Sadness I like to begin my messages with something that makes us laugh when I can (though some of you probably wouldn’t necessarily call it humor). As we approach the second Beatitude however, I realize that frivolity isn’t called for today. In fact, this character quality is ...read more

    We can con our coworkers, fool our friends and family, play charades with church members, and even deceive ourselves, but we can’t masquerade before the Lord because He sees right through our masks.

    Pursuing Purity in an Impure World I remember seeing a cartoon that shows a pastor and his wife deep in conversation. The wife says, “Today let’s do something different. Why don’t you be charming at home and grouchy at church?” Ouch. That really doesn’t apply to me…because I’m often grouchy in ...read more
