Worship Matters: Part 3

The first Element that we will look at is the “reading of Holy Scripture” (BCO 47-9). Christianity is a revealed religion; that is to say, we believe the Bible is God’s special revelation. We would not know who God is or what He requires of us (see WSC #3) unless He tells us. Apart from…

A Time To Send

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, . . . a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance… (Ecclesiastes…

A Letter From Charlotte’s Family

Praise God! Mom now “knows her faith.” She is with Jesus and all is well with her soul. Indeed, our souls are quieted by remembering the many ways that Mom’s church family blessed her earthly life, then continued to comfort and uphold our family in prayer and deeds after her passing. First of all, over…

Sunday School Scoop: May

Summer is always a time to relax the regular schedules, to spend more time with family and to get away from the usual for a while. That being said, it is the plan for the Sunday School Department (nursery through senior high) to also relax a little and give our dedicated teachers some time off….

Lesser-Known Luminaries and Our Celebrity Culture

We live in a world that crams the need to succeed down our collective throats.  And we tend these days to determine the success of things by how many “likes” it generates or “followers” it has on social media.  “Bigger is better” is a mantra that has been driving many for a lot of years. …

Unity Among Diversity
