Behind the Scenes from the Staff

Crazy Brave

Last month, I had the honor to join the 5th-8th grade youth groups at the Grand Theater to hear Former American Idol contestant, Dave Pitmann in concert. Dave wrote the song Crazy Brave after he went to audition for season 9 of American Idol. He shares that we have a purpose to step out of…

On Not Going Home

Last week a prominent theologian was asked to offer a two word opinion of the preacher Beth Moore. And in response, he said “Go Home.” This is enough to get me a bit worked up. But Moore responded with compassion and grace, saying her calling is not to man, but to God.             We here…

The God of Restoration

Lately, refinishing doors has been my project.  I have been sanding to remove varnish but leaving the stain and adding new polyurethane.  After sanding the first door, it looked damaged beyond repair.  I reluctantly went to my husband to admit my error.  He walked out of the room, got a rag and some water, and…

With Thanks

With thanks I give to our Pastors of our church for all they do on a regular daily basis.             Senior Pastor David Turner: We share almost the same date of birth. He is a day older than I! He has a generous heart, he brings the Word every weekend, he is full of grace…

Spiritual Milk

Have you ever been around a hungry new born and their relentless hunger for their mother’s milk. Nothing outside of being fed will satisfy that baby’s desire. Many new Christians experience a similar hunger for the spiritual milk found in the Bible and like a child getting older, some Christians lose their thirst for milk…

Taste and See!

During our Homecoming celebration, we enjoyed grilled burgers and dogs, ice cream and cookies and the joyous sounds of chatter and laughter in the Fellowship Hall. After Pastor Brian and the children led our worship time of joyful songs, more jubilant visiting spilled out into church as classrooms were visited and games were played. Then…popcorn!…

Grandparents Day Fun!

Wow! What fun! Friday, September 6, 2019 I shall never forget. I have been a Grammi for four “grandparents days” since my first grandchild, Tucker has been born. Now I have two, Kennedy became a little sister on May 26, 2019. Anyway, back to September 6! For grandparents day, Tucker’s learning school invites grandparents to…

On prayer…

I recently read the quote by Miroslav Volf which said that “There is something deeply hypocritical about praying for a problem that you are unwilling to resolve.” There is some obvious truth in that statement, of course. Though it is hard to swallow the idea that I may, at times, be that hypocrite… However, I…

Freedom Ramp

When we are well and life is fantastic, we take things for granted, even the smallest things. Many of you know I have a sister fighting the BIG fight, and has been for one year, four months. Every single day since Kaye has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic and liver cancer, she has had…
