From Pastor Steve: Jesus was about to feed the five thousand in John 6.  We read, “Jesus lifted up His eyes and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, ‘Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?’  But He said this to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.” It is natural for us to ask God questions: In times of uncertainty In times when we do not understand what is happening In times when we cannot see our way ahead However, are we......

As We Wait – Heart-to-Heart “The Spirit of God is arousing us within … that is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are ENLARGED in the waiting!” This morning as I waited before the Lord, He brought this scripture to mind, from Romans 8 in the MESSAGE Bible . The wording of this passage has opened my heart with fresh understanding about “waiting.” Will you allow the Word of God to wash over you with fresh perspective? Holy Spirit enlighten the......

As We Wait…Heart-to-Heart The Bible was authored so supernaturally and strategically that at any season of life … it can be applied to the day in which we are living. The following scriptures were studied in light of our time of self-quarantining. Joshua 4:23-24 “For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The Lord your God did to the Jordan just what He had done to the Red Sea when He dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He did this so that......

Here is a summary from yesterday’s message that will assist us in navigating through our worldwide crisis.  Remember:  a crisis is an opportunity for making profound decisions. Profound decisions begin with hearing from God.  His presence is always available to us.  Are you making yourself available to Him?  To others in need?  (NOTE: Roz and I are available by phone, text, email, and, in person for pastoral emergencies.  Never hesitate to contact us.) Acknowledge your real needs.  All of us need to encounter Christ to discover what our real needs are.  So......

As We Wait…Heart-to-Heart How many times have believers read and pondered Hebrews 12:1-3? Each time I’ve heard a message preached on these verses I’m always convicted. Note … I did not say “condemned.” When I feel condemnation, it makes me want to isolate … hiding while I am beating myself up for being so weak or ‘stuck’ … and nothing changes. After licking my wounds … distractions come, and life goes on. These verses in Hebrews, indicative of the kindness of Jesus, settle over my mind and heart with His gentle call......

As We Wait…Heart-To-Heart It seemed that the Coronavirus would not be as big a deal in America as it was in China and Italy since we are so health-conscious in the United States. Travel was banned from highly infected countries, which was a good move, but not enough to keep COVID-19 at bay. Wondering, praying, and listening for the Lord, I began sensing a while back that God was going to use this time to create something good. Genesis 50:20 came to mind. Remember what Joseph said to his brothers? “You intended......

    For any of you that missed yesterday’s service, please consider watching the message from John 4.  Because I specifically mentioned “K I M B E R”, whom we support and was blocked from entering India this past week, the message can only be accessed on our website, rather than through You Tube.  We do not want to create any further difficulty for her as India has tightened down on its restrictions.  God has a plan for her and we know He will redirect her to the right place.  Please pray for......
