Love and Marriage

For many Christians I Corinthians 13 is their favorite passage of scripture. And for good reason: it speaks to the very heart and soul of human existence.

Only God Knows

These are times we truly say, “only God knows.” Humbled by the health & financial impact of COVID-19, our current social unrest to heal racial wounds, plus the controversies that come with a major political election year – we are leaning all the more into God’s providential care.

Article written by Mark Barr, Church Administrator James 1:2-8 (NASB) have been “go to” verses for me for years. “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking […]

A newborn baby whimpers and squirms right after exiting the birth canal. His mother picks him up and hugs him to her breast. “Now, ” she coos. “It’ will be all right.” He settles down and roots for her nipple. A three-month-old awakens from her nap and glances about the room. Her eyes focus on […]
