I grew up watching the news. As a 5th grader, I remember watching in horror as the US rushed to pull it’s last folks out of South Vietnam, ahead of the fall of Saigon. I was dumbfounded. I couldn’t understand why we were fleeing, and it didn’t look like we had much military coverage for our people, as helicopters...

IN PERSON OR ONLINE?

It looks like we’re back to the point of very limited in-person attendance and more folks joining us online again. I keep being asked, “Are we having church?” My response today is, we’re going to keep the doors open if at all possible. We may be told to shut down in-person attendance with a shelter-in-place order from government...

LIFE GOES ON

Things are pretty crazy right now. The Covid numbers in our community are through the roof, and so are the strep, ear infections, and sinus infections. There’s no question that people are concerned, and as people are getting sick, they naturally get concerned about worst case scenarios. We want you to be aware, take the proper precautions, but  continue to...

Continued Hold on Countdown

If you weren’t in worship Sunday, I announced that we’d be another week (at least) in the relaunch of our contemporary service. We’re enjoying being together for now, as Trevor has done the  special music, along with Kendra and the choir one week, and preached another. But we’re still working to resolve the aftereffects of the freezer going...

Houston, We Have a Problem

Do you remember with the rocket launches, there always seemed to be some issue that delayed the launch? Well, apparently we are no different. On Sunday we realized that one of the freezers in the Social Hall kitchen wasn’t working.  Unfortunately, it had apparently been a few days and it happened to coincide with the heat of July the 4th. The...
