  • Support of nation’s veterans recognizes their sacrifices for American freedoms

    On Monday, we again marked our nation’s reverent observance of Veterans Day; the 87th anniversary of the Armistice ending the carnage of World War I.

    This year, as in years past, our nation finds itself at war. Young men and women, volunteers in the uniform of our armed forces, continue their unbroken legacy of service to our nation; a service conceived during the revolutionary cause of our fore- fathers.

    Apostolic church honors veterans at special service

    The service will include a multimedia presentation commemorating past and present veterans who have served or are currently serving our country. 

  • Jesus can break through in those ‘cold’ moments

    When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such. With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.

    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.

    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.

  • Faithful believers should uphold, support others in church, community

    Recently, I have felt myself drawn to the conclusion that one of the biggest problems facing Christianity today is that we have forgotten discipleship. 

    John Wesley wrote, “I am more and more convinced that the devil himself desires nothing more than this, that the people of any place should be half-awakened and then left to themselves to fall asleep again.”

  • A relationship with God can fulfill one’s dreams

    Everyone has dreamed of something they wanted to achieve in life when they were younger. However, as we grow older, these ambitions start making us desperate because we haven’t completed them.

  • Project Comfort makes a difference for senior citizens in Carroll County

    Mr. Dick Humphrey is in heaven now. I knew him as a senior citizen in my neighborhood many years ago. He moved slowly and deliberately, always with a cane. He depended on those around him to help get groceries into his house and snow off his porch.

    People looked out for Mr Humphrey and offered to help him in many creative ways. My “thing” was to walk with him to church. He was always happy and grateful for the community who cared for him.

  • Bible teachings show there’s hope for the knowledge-challenged

    I hope this confession will surprise you, although it probably won’t, but the truth is, I’m not very smart.

    When I was a kid I was a lot smarter, and when I was a teenager I knew everything. But now that I’m in my 50s I realize that I’m not all that smart.
