Of Candy and Toothaches
Every Halloween I have to stop and ask myself whether we should, as a church, be promoting, encouraging, and participating in this holiday. Let’s face it, when you think about Halloween the mind quickly goes to scary, witches, ghosts, and goblins. I know it’s fun and there are many other costumes that have nothing to do with scary themes. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:22-23, “To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all How COVID has affected us

Whose Team Are You On?
One of the first things you’ll learn about me is that I’m a HUGE sports fan. As a kid, baseball was my first love. I started playing basketball when I was in Junior-High, and ended up playing all through College. I learned many lessons in my years playing basketball; lessons about the game, life, and even some spiritual lessons. I went to a Christian High School, so sports were never just about the game. My coach focused just as much How COVID has affected us

How Great is Our God?
Monday we started on the roofing project for Manistee Church of Christ. I was told by the recon team (Jeff Badgero) that we were going to have to strip the old shingles off. The job then became bigger in my head. He suggested we have a plan to start stripping shingles so that we could re-shingle on Saturday. The project became overwhelming in my head. I had quite a few people tell me they couldn’t get on the roof due How COVID has affected us
Community is Just a Click Away
If you have driven west on M-72 towards Traverse City recently, you may have seen a new billboard just after the Bill Marsh auto dealership. The billboard features a smiling family of 6 sitting at home on their couch with the words, “Community is just a click away.” The only other text on the board is a url, kccwired.com. Pop-up on kccwired.com Those who visit the website, which is a local church, are greeted with the same photo on the home page How COVID has affected us

The Kalkaska Community came together last week to assist the former residents of Kalkaska Woods Apartments in a big way. 16 families have been displaced due to an apartment fire. Donations were collected early in the week.
