Midweek Message 5-16-2018

Paul writes a letter to the church in Ephesus and he calls them saints; faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ. Toward the end of the letter in Chapter 6 he tells them to be strong in the Lord and in God’s mighty power.  He tells them to put on the full armor of God and…

I want to ask a question today.  You will be the only one who knows your answer,  so be honest.   How committed am I to God,  to His purpose for my life and to His Church?  You can answer on a scale of 1-10 or not very,  somewhat or very committed.  How did you do? …

Midweek Message 4-25-2018

Midweek Message 3-14-2018

I want to encourage you to take the time to read through the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and as you do notice how much time Jesus spent meeting the needs of other people.  About the only thing that is recorded about Jesus was that when he was tired he would get in…

Midweek Message 3-7-2018

I believe God has given all of us a purpose for being here on this earth.  We are here for a reason.  As I have said so many times,  we are not here just to take up space.  There is a little book in the Old Testament named after it’s main character, Esther.  Esther is…
