Progress in the Youth Center has come rushing in faster than Spring! What started at a snail’s pace of fresh paint has escalated into new flooring, sound, lighting, staging and a developing game room!

As we see it, ‘Casual Christians’ are a big problem in today’s church. We have gotten too comfortable in our daily settings. We see the same people and we have the same conversations, over and over, and over again. We do not venture out; we do not talk to the poor, homeless, or needy in our own communities. We have gotten too comfortable staying in our own Christian bubble.Read More

I have always struggled with the thought of Christianity being labeled a religion. It has just never seemed personal enough to me. Giving your life over to God isn’t about being in a religion or having ‘rules’ to follow. Being a Christian is about knowing and continually drawing nearer to God. Not only should we desire for a close, personal relationship with Him, but…Read More
That’s Not Fair!”
Whether you look back on your childhood or have children of your own, life never seems to be fair when you’re young. Every little incident turns into a dramatic whirlwind of tears at the invalid “justice system”. It is the type of thing that makes you think back and laugh. Were the circumstances really unfair?

“Inconceivable!” Yes, I just quoted one of the greatest movies of all time: The Princess Bride. Throughout the movie, Vizzini repetitively uses the word ‘inconceivable’ in a variety of contexts.
