Hello Friends, How are you doing today? Can you believe how hot it has been this past week? Temperatures were in the 90s but it felt like triple digits….I wonder if you could have fried an egg outside….I hope you were able to stay cool and safe and took plenty of water breaks and took some time to go swimming. On a “cooler” subject, are you glad to be back in school? Some of you are only going for a half day while others of you are going fulltime and getting homework......

Dear Lord, we ask that the new school year for students of our community (and beyond) be filled with wonderful memories, cherished moments, everlasting life lessons, opportunities of intellectual growth, and encouragement to make their dreams come true. As the students go back to school, we ask for your protection, O Lord, from name-calling, bullying, and any violence. You are an amazing Lord, and we are so thankful you are with each and every student. O Lord, bless the students, and may their curiosity be enriched, their minds filled with wisdom, and......

Hello Friends, This…is…the…week!!! School begins! Are you excited? Are you scared? Are you nervous? Are you not wanting to go back to school quite yet? I can’t believe that this week has arrived…. In a blink of an eye, summer vacation has ended, backpacks have been filled with crayons, markers, binders, folders, notebooks, pencils, pens, and clothes have been bought, hair has been cut, teeth have been cleaned, and doctor visits have been completed. It’s official: school is in session! In a way, you are like Jonah–going to a place that you......

Hello Friends, How are you doing today? Have any of you gone school shopping yet? You got new markers, crayons, notebooks, pencils, folders, and maybe new shoes, backpacks, and outfits?! When I was your age, I loved going shopping for school supplies; being able to pick out the exact crayons and markers that I wanted, the types of pencils and pens that I sought, and color coded my folders with my notebooks. As I got older and was given a locker, I enjoyed getting shelves and magnetic baskets for my locker to......

Hello Friends, How are you doing today? After talking about Jonah being thrown overboard into the raging sea, did any of you go swimming? With it being so hot and humid lately, swimming sounds like a really good idea! However, whenever I got in trouble during the summer, put in time out for doing something I wasn’t supposed to be doing, I wasn’t allowed to go swimming. Have any of you ever been put in time out? Today, we learn that Jonah was put in “time out” so that he could talk......

Hello Friends, How are you doing today? WE…ARE…OVER…HALFWAY…THROUGH…JULY! (Yikes). Where is the Summer going? It seems like just yesterday we were walking out of the school doors taking in the freedom of Summer and now we are thinking about school supplies, backpacks, and pre-made lunches. I don’t know about you, but I am praying that the last few days of Summer go by slowly. Can I ask you a question: Do you like to go swimming? I was about your age when my parents signed me up for swimming lessons. I was......

Hello Friends, How are you doing today? Are you enjoying your Summer vacation? I recently just saw some posts on Facebook about school supply shopping days, schools releasing their schedules for the upcoming school year, and parents asking how to purchase a yearbook….It seems that Summer is coming to a close before our very eyes. It feels like it just got started! As my Grandma used to say, “It is what it is.” Anyways, do you remember who we talked about last week? We talked about a prophet who ran from God......

Hello Friends, How are you doing today? Can you believe that Summer is almost half-way over…. I think we should pray to God asking for a few more days of Summer. What do you think? For the next few weeks, we are going to traveling with man who disobeyed God, ran from God, got swallowed up by a large fish, and then decided to listen to God. Do you know who I am talking about? “JONAH!” That is correct! And to help us better understand Jonah, we are going to swim with......

Hello Friends, Can you believe that in just two days from now we will be celebrating 247th Birthday of our Nation? Do you have any plans? Are you going to go watch fireworks? Are you going to stay home and set off your own fireworks and light sparklers? Are you spending time with family, friends, or your neighbors? What are you doing for the 4th of July? Did you know that the 4th of July is more than just a day to go see or set off fireworks? The 4th of July......

Hello Friends, This is a very special post! Truly one of a kind! A gift given by God! A miracle in the works for many years! It takes my breathe away just thinking about it because I can’t believe it has finally happened! You see, just a few days ago, Pastor Daniel and his fianc√©, Emily, “tied the knot,” as some may say: they got married! They got hitched! They stood in front of their friends and family and said these sacred words: “In the name of God, I, name, take you,......
