  • Nativity on the Square
  • Advent celebrates the coming of the Lord Jesus

    The New Year in Christian circles begins four weeks before Christmas. We call this season of preparation Advent, which simply means “coming.”

    On each of the four Sundays of Advent, we light one of the four candles on the Advent wreath. It is a symbol of looking forward to the coming of Jesus. As the light on the wreath grows, so does our joy and anticipation for the feast of Christmas.

  • So what does an accident mean? Tragedy touches each family differently

    When I gave my heart to wisdom and to seek the task which has been done on the Earth — even though one should never sleep day or night — and I saw every work of God, I concluded that no one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all his efforts to search it out, he will not discover its meaning. Even if a wise man claims he knows, he cannot comprehend it.” Ecclesiastes 8:16-17

  • A Psalm of Thanksgiving

  • Church honors Vets, first responders
  • Why me?

    Our country witnessed a devastating storm “Sandy” just last week claiming more than one hundred lives and loss to property. Around the same time the people in our Carroll County also suffered the tragic death of two children in a bus accident. 

    Several questions can pop up in our minds during such occasions. Why did the innocent children get killed in this way? Why is nature getting so cruel and violent — sweeping away the lives of people and damaging properties? Why is it happening to my family, to my beloved ones, in my neighborhood and country?
