Irrepressible life – you should hear these preachers sing!

The church’s one Foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord; she is His new creation, by water and the Word; from heav’n He came and sought her to be His holy bride; with His own blood He bought her, and for her life He died. I’m not sure if the planning was deliberate, but the timing Continue reading Irrepressible life – you should hear these preachers sing!

and morning light poured over the horizon…

“When God began to create the heavens and the earth— the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters— God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And so light appeared.

The Disney Magic Cruise Continue reading PEOPLE – not the magazine, but the real deal

50th Birthday Party part II (Such wonderful fun!)

Enough people attend our church to justify two Sunday morning meetings. We average around 160 at the 8:30 “Contemporary Worship”, and 240 for the 11:00 “Traditional.” It makes good sense to offer the two worship styles, and seating 400 people simply won’t work at the one time… … Unless, that is, we schedule a special event Continue reading 50th Birthday Party part II (Such wonderful fun!)
