The Fifth Seal

An Apocalyptic End-Times Thriller

(The Arrows Beyond Book 2)

by Milton Cantellay

The Fifth Seal

With the dawning darkness, the world has become a place where the Christian faith is widely persecuted as hateful and intolerant.

“Aubrey clenched her hand over Alice’s mouth to muffle the cries of pain being caused by the pressure she was putting on her stomach wound. In the distance, she could hear their pursuers talking. Deacon was barking orders.
Looking around at the abandoned warehouse, she saw ways to get out, but not for both of them, and she wasn’t leaving her twin behind. Certainly not for Deacon to find.”

Ex-FBI agent Elijah Turk and twins, Aubrey and Alice Raydon, along with Cousin Evan Raydon, have opened a thrift store in St. Louis in the new America. They want to help the needy and displaced while watching over the local churches. When gruesome killings take place within the body of the local underground church, local authorities are compromised. A vigilante group led by a secular church leader is suspected and the dangerous mission begins; protect the church while rooting out the group responsible. This exciting story of how God will use the faithful Christians in the end-times to bring people to Him, even through martyrdom.

“When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne.” – Revelation 6:9

For Better or For Worse

(Yellowstone Series Book 2)

by Anne Perreault

For Better or For Worse

In book 1 of the series, Desire of the Heart, Cady McClintoch’s sheltered existence is thrown into glorious disarray when she meets Grant.

Now married to him, she moves to Montana to start a new life. Settling into the role as wife, Cady soon learns that life doesn’t always go as planned. Questioning Grant’s love for her, she struggles to overcome her own insecurities.

Grant McClintoch is a man of God with his share of demons to conquer. Overcoming the loss of his first wife and daughter, he works hard to reassure Cady that she is more than enough for him. Wanting her to spread her wings, yet being overly protective of her, is a real dilemma.

When unspeakable tragedy strikes, changing their lives forever, their commitment is tested to the brink of breaking. Only God can teach them to love more fully and completely.





Meet Me on the Porch

by Erin Stevenson

Meet Me on the Porch

Brynne Lockwood has come home to Brattleboro, Vermont after a humiliating job loss. She’s weary and broken, and still hasn’t truly forgiven herself for a former unhealthy relationship with long-lasting consequences. She doesn’t believe that she deserves anything good and can’t imagine that God could ever use her.

After recovering from a shattering loss, Pastor Adam Johnston is on his way to a new assignment. A mix-up takes him and his baby daughter to beautiful southern Vermont. If he stays, he’ll face opposition, but God has prepared his heart for ministry, and he’s committed to serving there.

Adam and Brynne connect quickly and unexpectedly, but circumstances demand that they be cautious.

Now, you are invited to join Adam and Brynne on the porch at her grandparents’ home—a special place where you’ll experience their joy as Adam and Brynne build a friendship rooted in Biblical principles, find healing for their wounds, and discover God’s plan for their lives.

                            Gems From Pastor Jim 5/16/2022

by Jim Hughes

CrossMatt. 21:21-22 Then Jesus told them, “I assure you, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May God lift you up and throw you into the sea,’ and it will happen. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

The more faith we have, the greater our authority to move the mountains in our lives will be. There is nothing that can hinder us if we have the faith to move forward. Faith can be either our greatest friend or our worst foe.

Faith is our friend when it is a real presence in our lives, when it is actively working to draw us closer to God. It helps us to grow up and become more effective lights of grace in the world. It helps us to be able to handle whatever life throws at us with a calm confidence and unshakeable peace. It provides for us a purpose for living and dying.
