When Bad Things Happen to Good People

by Rebekah Beene This week we will be having a family funeral.  I’ve been processing this incident since Friday.  It’s been very hard.  Danny’s precious cousin lost her life at the hands of someone masquerading as a friend. She walked into heaven, not as a special needs woman of 66 years, not as […]

Gems From Pastor Jim 8/14/2018

by Jim Hughes Prov. 26:20 Fire goes out for lack of fuel, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops. In order to keep a fire going, you have to keep feeding it. In order to keep an argument going, you have to keep feeding it. Quarrels are unavoidable. We have different opinions on a […]

Faith’s Checkbook: He Lowers to Raise

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon “Thy LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: He bringeth low, and lifteth up”   (1 Samuel 2:7). All my changes come from Him who never changes. If I had grown rich, I should have seen His hand in it, and I should have praised Him; let me equally see […]

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon “The LORD God will help me”   (Isaiah 50:7). These are in prophecy the words of Messiah in the day of His obedience unto death, when He gave His back to the smiters and His cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. He was confident in divine support […]

Gems From Pastor Jim as of 7/31/2018

by Jim Hughes Prov. 25:27 Just as it is not good to eat too much honey, it is not good for people to think about all the honors they deserve. We do it don’t we? We think more highly of ourselves than we ought to. We get caught up in the thinking of […]

Faith’s Checkbook for July 27th: More than Mere Words

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon “I wilt give you the sure mercies of David”   (Acts 13:34). Nothing of man is sure; but everything of God is so.

Image Rich, Reality Poor: Behind the Story: Deep in the Heart

by Staci Stallings It’s amazing to me how different life looks if you ever bother to look at more than the outside surface of things.  In our world today we’re all so busy, and we get so caught up in doing things and getting things and having things that we forget what’s really important.  What’s really important […]
