A Christmas Story Quiz

In October, we shot a Christmas video with children from our Wednesday After School Program (WASP). These are kids in Kindergarten through 2nd grade. We’ll premiere the video at our church’s Christmas Eve program this month. We sat the children down and asked them questions about the Christmas story. Overall, they did quite well recalling the story of the Nativity. However, some of their answers raised an eyebrow.  Here is a quiz on the Christmas story based on some of the children’s How COVID has affected us

Emotionally Connecting with God in Worship

Music has a remarkable way of stirring our emotions and transcending language barriers. In the realm of worship, music becomes a powerful medium to connect with God on a deep and emotional level. In this article, we will explore the biblical perspective on emotionally connecting with God through musical worship. We are called to be active participants in worship by offering our hearts fully to Him.

SELF DEFENSE?

Over the last few weeks, our life group has been diving into the Sermon on the Mount. There are a ton of great messages we get from it: don’t judge, don’t worry or be anxious, and of course, we have the Lord’s Prayer. There are, however, a lot of difficult teachings in there as well: love your enemies, be peacemakers, and equating hate and lust to murder and adultery. There’s one idea that seems to be a common thread throughout the entire sermon How COVID has affected us

SPICING IT UP WITH CHANGE

I’ve decided to change the name of my blog. My invisible blog. LOL It was called “Writer’s Block.” It wasn’t easy to find. In fact, when I Google “Writer’s Block” my blog does not come up. Go figure. The term “Writer’s Block” has been circulating for decades so that may have something to do with it.  Anyway, the new title of my blog is “Christian Living in the Digital Age.” This is a blog where I write about the Christian faith, How COVID has affected us

KCC helps out a Neighbor

Volunteers from the Kalkaska Church of Christ in partnership with Freedom Builders of Traverse City, Michigan participated in a 2:14 project on Thursday, September 7, 2023. The team installed two doors, a window, and stairs into the home. Georgia Beaver provided a delicious lunch for the workers. This is called a 2:14 Project based on the Bible verse in James that says, “What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? How COVID has affected us
Hello summer from Kalkaska Church of Christ

It’s Summer

What’s your plan? Every year summer comes around and we love it! The clear waters of the Manistee River or Torch Lake. Local small-town festivals and craft fairs are within driving distance. And northern Michigan weather is the best in the summer. We can warm up nicely during the day and then enjoy a bonfire at night (if Smoky Bear says it’s okay). However, if we aren’t careful, summer can slide right by us if we don’t map out what our summer plans look like. The same How COVID has affected us

Ecclesiastical Expectations: What Does the Bible Say?

This is the third article of three regarding church expectations. In my first article, I asked “What do you expect from the church?” In the second article, I wrote to answer the question, “What does your church expect from you?”  Let’s look at what the Bible says in regard to church expectations. If you have heard of the phrase, “paradigm shift” then you’ll understand that this is nothing like what my first two posts talked about, but is rather a whole new way How COVID has affected us
