Summer Recipes- Food Allergy Sensitive
on July 29th, 2020
One of the most hospitable things you can do when you are hosting someone is check on food likes, dislikes, pay special attention to allergies and then accommodate those needs as much as you can. When you take the little extra step to make sure everyone has something to enjoy it is noticed. You may choose to go the step farther and try and make a meal or dessert that everyone can eat in which case no one will feel left out or isolated.  Read More
Sharing Your Faith
on July 28th, 2020
Sharing our faith can be difficult and sometimes scary. We might be afraid of rejection. We might be afraid of saying the wrong the thing. We might not feel like we have the ability to speak eloquently or even if we can speak well, we might feel like we just don't have anything to offer. The beautiful thing is as the body of Christ, as followers of Jesus we each have been given the Holy Spirit. Jesus through the Holy Spirit has called us to Himself and to follow Him.

Crisis Management 2020
on July 20th, 2020
Wikipedia defines crisis management as the process by which an organization (in our case a church) deals with a disruptive and unexpected event that threatens to harm the organization or its stakeholders (members). Let’s see…has there been anything in the last, say in the last 4 months, that individually and collectively we have dealt with that was unexpected and disruptive?? Um….can you say Covid19? The above Wikipedia definition pretty much describes my life lately, as I’m sure it does yours. Disruptive, unexpected and maybe even threatening at times.   Read More
Family of God Podcast
on July 15th, 2020
Coronavirus and social unrest have had Pastor Hill and I thinking about how we can better serve our community and better serve our volunteers. The pandemic and shutdown have given us a lot of time to explore other avenues of doing ministry. Obviously, there is the street ministry that many of you are up to date on and the continuing food ministry. We also took some time during the pandemic to explore technological ministry, as so many other churches have, and began putting services, discussions, devotions, and sermons on our Facebook page.  Read More
