Because He Too Has Suffered

By Sheri Boulet / a few hours ago

My Mama is in the hospital. This has been the theme for our lives over the last couple of years. But this time, something is different. We have seen doctor upon doctor here in our little town. And they have given her the care that they could within the scope of their practice. But it […]


Lacking and Slacking on Elders

By Steven Lewis / a day ago

The Bible uses Elders on a constant basis to raise up the next generation whether bad or good.  Even Moses recognized elders out of respect not because he was subject to them in spirit but because an elder is worthy of the respect. When his Father-in-law Jethro who was not a Jew made statements to help […]


God Revealed

By Phyllis Corbin / a couple of days ago

GOD REVEALED I think it would be everyone’s desire to know God! In fact, it should be more important to know God than anything else! Because a correct understanding can lead to eternal life! John 17:3; 8:24; It should be more important than to defend a particular view of God, even when that view is […]

By Don Doran / a few days ago

When disease, financial problems, family situations or the multitude of lifes other things happen, how will we survive? “I prevented the dawning of the morning, […]


Are we the stained glass crowd?

By Kaylynn Schrack / 7 days ago

One of my favorite songs talks about the church being too worried about appearances than the lost, and it is one of those songs that grieve my heart, because it is true many times! Believe me I like clothes, shoes, purses as much as any other girl, but at what cost? I don’t want to pick […]


Have You Seen God?

By Don Doran / last week

Have you ever heard of God with your ears? You know what I mean! Have you heard someone say something like, “I remember when I was sick and the doctors didn’t know what to do, I was prayed for and God healed me?” Maybe it went like this, “We were in a great financial need […]
