  • Many of us grew up with a family garden and remember the fresh taste of the first tomato of the summer or the crispness of the first ear of corn.  While you may not have the time or space to grow your own fruits and vegetables, you can still get the freshest produce available at your local farmers market. Shopping at the local farmers market has numerous benefits for you, your family, local farmers and the community. 

  • Now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.

  • Over the past couple of weeks, have you noticed the brilliant white blossoms on trees that seem to be everywhere?

    Oh, what beautiful trees!

  • As Christians, we are blessed to have our Bibles. Through his Word, God encourages us, corrects us, guides us and teaches us about himself. For this reason, it is very important that you and I encounter the truths of Scripture regularly. The two most common ways we do this are through reading the Bible ourselves and through listening to faithful preaching and teaching. Both are important to our growth as believers, but James tells us that there is a danger that we must be aware of and avoid when we encounter God’s Word.
