      Words of Encouragement

      February 7, 2018 Pastor Terry
      Romans 15:5 states:  "May the God who gives endurance and  encouragement  give you the same attitude of mind toward each other (encouragement) that Christ Jesus had ..."
       
      We all could use a word of encouragement. So, with that in mind, when you come to church this Sunday you will find a blank AFFIRMATION CARD in your...

      Be Still In The Lord

      January 24, 2018 Pastor Terry

      "Most of us feel utterly ransacked. We are waylaid by endless demands and stifling routines. Even our vacations have a panicky, task-like edge to them. "If I only had more time, is the mantra of our age."

      Can you relate to this? The culture of busyness is affecting most of us. How do we slow down? How do we bring a better balance into our lives?...

      Less is More

      December 7, 2017 Pastor Terry
      I love little quips and quotes - pithy sayings  that cause me to reflect and remember.  
      Take these for example: 
      "You don't get two chances to make a good first impression."
      "If your mind goes blank, don't forget to turn off the sound."
      "God will either lighten our load or strengthen our backs."
      "Kindness is a hard thing to...

      Psalm 90

      November 30, 2017 Pastor Terry
      I love Psalm 90.  It is jam-packed with some great wisdom  and verses that many of us are familiar with.  Verse 4   "... 1000 years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by."   Verse 10   "The length of our days is 70 years - or 80, if we have the strength..."   Then we come to verse...

      Gen Z

      November 23, 2017 Pastor Terry

      Success By God’s Standard

      September 27, 2017 Pastor Terry
       
      Martin Buxbaum, an American poet , wrote this little verse which has a lot of truth to it:

      You can use most any measure
      When you're speaking of success
      You can measure it in a fancy home
      Expensive car or dress
      But the measure of your real success
      Is one you cannot spend
      It's the way your child describes YOU
      When talking to a friend.
