January 12, 2018 - Preparing for the Lord's Day and Bulletin

The opening chapters of the book of Numbers can seem like just that, a list of names and numbers. To the casual reader, there does not appear to be much encouragement or direction for our faith in Christ. Nevertheless, as we study these chapters, we will find that they clearly point us to the work of Christ on behalf of God’s people. We will continue our study of Num...

This Sunday, we begin our new sermon series, Numbers: The Journey Home. Over the next year, we will join Israel on their long and often winding journey from the base of Mount Sinai to their new home in the promised land of Canaan.

Moving toward the new year, it is appropriate to reflect on our lives.  What did we devote our lives to in the past year and what do we want to devote to in the year to come?  We see that Jesus Himself regularly devoted Himself to the word of God as the source of His life direction.  It is no wonder that Jesus regularly quoted the scripture, because it had a...

Did you ever receive a Christmas present that you just didn’t want?  As a child, it was always disappointing to get something practical like socks or a tooth brush. As an adult, you hope not to receive something useless or offensive. “You think I wear what size?” And sometimes the hardest gifts to receive are the ones that we truly need. Yet, it take...

Advent Joy Devotional


Joy is something we all desire, but something that so often eludes us. Why is that? I would say part of the elusiveness of joy is trying to fill a spiritual need with a physical solution. We think that more money, a bigger house, a nicer car, and so on will provide the joy we are longing for. Perhaps it’s not material possessions but we think new friends, a different spo...

Johnathan Edwards once wrote, “Self-denial will also be reckoned amongst the troubles of the godly… But whoever has tried self-denial can give in his testimony that they never experienced greater pleasure and joys than after great acts of self-denial.” The third Sunday of Advent, we focus on the theme of joy. Yet we can often miss the biblical pathway to...

December 8, 2017 - Preparing for the Lord's Day and Bulletin

Preparing for the Lord's Day Peace is a strange word to associate with the holiday season. How are you to have peace with all the traffic? How are you to have peace when you have added fifteen Christmas parties/events to your calendar? What is peaceful about Walmart in December? What is peaceful about children hyped-up on the excitement of presents and the rush of sugar? ...
