A Word of Praise From the Youth Leader…

For the past four years, our youth have had the opportunity to join with other churches for a spring retreat at Camp YoLiJwa.  It is wonderful that we are a church who supports our youth and recognizes the value of youth ministry.  Camp is one of the best ways we [...]

“What Was I thinking?”

I woke up this morning realizing I had to go out in public with purple hair.  It was not something I was sure I really wanted to do.  How are people going to look at me today?  Will I be judged by the color of my hair? Of course, my [...]

“What Are Your Plans for Lent this Year?”

I hope you have been enjoying the teaching series on the life of Jesus as much as I have been enjoying the study.  As his disciples, we have an important message to share:  “Repent and believe the good news!” We are going to take a pause in this series for [...]

“I Am A Church Member”

Nick and I just returned from a lovely weekend in New Mexico.  We started our journey in Albuquerque, where Nick attended a few meetings, and I got some much appreciated downtime.  After his meetings ended, we drove a little north and spent a couple days in Santa Fe.  What a [...]

“… Just Take a Walk!”

I recently received the following email from our conference office encouraging us to participate in a Harvest Prayer Walk on October 8th: “Prayer puts feet to our response to the many spiritual, mental and physical needs we see in our communities.  God is calling his people to pray for our [...]

Pray for Our Kids!

School seems to start earlier every year.  The 2016-2017 school year has already begun. This past week, the youth group met and spent time praying for one another and for other students everywhere who have started another school year.  Please join me as I continue to pray this month for [...]
