  • Keep your life in focus by putting God first

    Please read Ecclesiastes 2:1-11. These scriptures teach us that Solomon made costly mistakes.  Known as the wisest man who ever lived excluding Jesus, Solomon made some costly blunders.

    His pursuit of worldly goods that did not pertain to God’s vision for him produces insanity. By the time he penned these words, he had reached a high level of success, but was not satisfied or content.

    Like many people today, he felt empty.

    Church set yard sale

  • Learn to face all of life’s challenges as Paul did

    Think about the times when you have felt truly satisfied in your life. What caused you to feel that way at that moment? 

    For most people, a sense of well-being comes when their surroundings and personal life are just the way they want it, all at the same time. But that wasn’t the case with Paul as recorded in the New Testament. He learned to be content in every circumstance, good or bad.

    Anti-drug group to hold prayer gathering

  • Drop your rock: Look to Jesus and love instead of hate

    Forget about the feuds between the North and the South, the Hatfields and McCoys, or even “West Side Story’s” the Sharks and the Jets.

    Dubbed the “A-POP-calypse,” we — at least in the world of pop music — are in the middle of a battle royale between the Katy Cats and the Little Monsters, the fans (or “stans” as they’re called) of singers Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.

  • Hope and help for the hugging averse at church

    Confession: I really, really, really hate to admit this but there’s a certain part of any church service that I dread — the “turn around and greet those around you” part.

    If you ask my sister what’s up with that she’ll tell you it’s because I’m “people intolerant.” She’s lactose intolerant — I’m people intolerant.

    She’s kidding. Sort of.
