Merry Christmas in Word and Deed

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Colossians 3:17 NASB Merry Christmas! I pray that you had a Thanksgiving overflowing with gratitude and that you are as excited as I am to step into a season of wishing people a “Merry Christmas!” Christmas is not just a culturally accepted holiday on our calendar, it celebrates the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; stepping out of heaven and into the flesh of a human to come seek and save us.

Giving Thanks to God for Generosity

"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.

"Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name. "But who am I and who are my people that we should be... Read more >>

God's Will For Us

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Through the month of November, we have celebrated, appreciated, and prayed for our active-duty military, our veterans, and the spouses, children and family members that have served and sacrificed with them on our behalf. For all of you, we give thanks. And now, as we approach this upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I’m reminded of the heart of thanks and the attitude of gratitude of the Apostle Paul.

Keep Alert and Praying For Our Military

Colossians 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving… Greetings! As I sit and write to you today, I am delightfully distracted by the sights and sounds of our incredible military training: sharpening and maintaining their readiness right outside my window. Jets, ships and helicopters roar past my window with such volume that it sometimes shakes the building but is a strangely comforting sound to me as I spent most of my life on or very near military bases. My father served twenty-six years in the military and my husband served for twenty-two; the sweet... Read more >>

Repair the Breach

“And your righteous will go before you; The glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; You will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ If you remove the yoke from your midst…Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell.” – Isaiah 58:8b-9a, 12 As representatives of Jesus Christ, we have been called and appointed to repair the breach. The great statesman Edmund Burke said that “whatever disunites man from God, also disunites man... Read more >>

Strategic Prayers For Our Pastors

“With every prayer and request, pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be alert with all perseverance and every request for all the saints.” -Ephesians 6:18 NASB Pastors are a key resource in the Church. They impart knowledge to congregations on Sunday mornings and give pastoral care throughout the week to congregants who are sick, homebound, or simply needing biblical guidance. In recent decades, they also shoulder additional pressure of being business-savvy, leveraging social media and the expectation of hitting the ‘culturally relevant’ moving target. “People take it for granted that the pastor is supposed to...

Pastor Appreciation Sunday - October 10th

Being Built Up in the Fullness of Christ

“So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13 NIV The National Day of Prayer Task Force is known for our one special and specific day of bringing our country together on the first Thursday of May to pray for the nation.
