Lost In These Uncertain Times?

Do you ever feel lost? Do you ever feel undecided? Do things seem uncertain and the future unclear? You are not alone. This year has been unlike any other. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, forest fires out West, hurricanes in the South, and political uncertainty have made us all feel we have lost control with no idea when it will come back.  On top of all the events affecting our nation and the world, many are dealing with family issues, employment uncertainty,…

The Reminder of God’s Creativity and Design

By Andy Bratton, Senior Minister Ah, the changing colors of fall.  Such beautiful colors, especially when the sun is shining on the leaves after a small rain so the colors glisten.  There are tunnels of trees you can drive through and be surrounded by the colors.  There is a chairlift ride you can take for $5 to see the leaves.  I am looking outside my window at the church and can see all kinds of colors as I type this. …

Showing That God Has Chosen You

By Sara Blasko…..and guest writer, Peter! Sometimes when I’m not sure what to write about I open my Bible or my Bible app looking for something to write about.

Keep adding these things as you grow in your faith.  I really couldn’t do better than Peter so enjoy! Wise…

Preparing a Place

By Sara Blasko, Children’s Ministry Director My in-Laws recently sold their house in Florida, and have also been dealing with some health issues. Nick and I offered to go down for a few days and pack up their house and drive the moving truck home. We’ve been here for 3 days and have most of it done.  It has been pretty emotional to say the least. This has been our go to spring break destination for the past 10 years…

Wedded Bliss

By Andy Bratton, Senior Minister Today is my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary.  I have been around for almost 52 of them.  Whenever I say “marriage,” I can’t help but remember the Princess Bride movie and the famous scene of the king and princess Buttercup getting married against her will.  And just when the formal service is beginning we hear the minister say, “Mawwige.  Mawwige is what bwings us together today.”  And later he says, “Wuv, twoo Wuv.” I looked up…

Until one day, this chap named, Sylvester McMonkey McBean, showed up with a machine that could put stars on their bellies thus differentiating one Sneech from another. That’s when the problems began. Pride, jealousy, and envy crept in as some Sneeches had stars…
