Fall Harvest Friendships

I love this time of year!  I love pumpkins, and apples, and all the wonderful baked goods that come from these delightful foods.  After a cold September, I enjoy Indian summer in October when the afternoons are in the 60’s, the air looks soft from just the right amount of humidity, the trees are at their…

There's Nothing Like Going to Church

The church – so amazing how everyone comes with various backgrounds, and yet we are all unified because of Jesus Christ!

Hate Leads to What?

Acts 7:54-58: “When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.  But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and said, Behold, I see the heavens…
