Word From the Pastor

No one is a true humanitarian who is not above all one who honors God.

Marriage Ministry

Marriage Moment

It can be difficult to pursue our spouse throughout the years of marriage. We must not think of marriage as the grand finale to our courtship! The chase should never end! Pursue your spouse! Remind them they are beautiful or handsome and the only one on earth for you! “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.” Colossians 3:12-13

Marriage Moment

Your spouse may not be your favorite person right now. We ALL have days where we annoy each other, or get on each other’s nerves. Move toward each other when you don’t “feel” like it. Look past the annoyances to the person you love. “Be angry and do not sin. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger, and don’t give the devil an opportunity.” Ephesians 4:26

Ministry Spotlight

Thank You Coffee Crusaders
For Your Behind The Scenes Work!

Coffee Cups

There are always lots of things “behind the curtain” that need to be done to keep any factory running. But unlike The Wizard of Oz, who made promises he couldn’t keep, we have a small, stealthy troupe of caffeine-crusaders that creep into the church every week with water, teas, coffee, and creamers with the promise of setting up and plugging in so we can all enjoy Hot Coffee or Tea on Sunday morning! Maybe The Wizard wouldn’t have been so cranky if he’d had his coffee ready and waiting for him too!

Thanks so much to Gary and Sandi Nelson for keeping this church and all of the caffeine and decaf lovers happy! When asked why they do this every week, their answer was simple, “It’s an easy way to serve and we can see that it brings such joy!” Staying up late on Saturday night or arriving to church early on Sunday isn’t always “easy” but it sure is appreciated! The Nelson’s have a few helpers with Richard and Becky Vessey, but would love to add a few more crusaders to their team! If you’ve ever fancied yourself a “barista” or you’re just good at following the instructions of some veteran coffee makers consider joining them once a month or so!/p>
