  • CITY ON A HILL

    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.

  •  I was recently reading an article entitled “Whatever Happened to Civility?” It was written by Dr. Rocco Leonard Martino, founder and chairman of the board of Cyber-Fone Technologies Inc.
    We do not have to turn very far to see that this question should be one that begs for our response and action. It is easy to find a widespread breakdown in civility between individuals and groups of people. Rocco reminds us:
    “Civility is a noun that essentially means showing respect for another person’s words, actions, beliefs and demeanor.

  • This week my mind is going in 100 different directions. Here’s some of the things that are making me crazy/giving me comfort:
    A woman I met in a 12-step program sums up the first three steps like this: “I can’t. God can -- I think I’ll let him.”
    I can’t.
    I can’t fix the things in my life or the things in others’ lives that are broken. I’ve been trying, and I can’t. I can’t.
    I can’t, but God can.

  • You know, we should read our Bibles. You probably even started this year with good intentions of reading it each day or at least a little more regular. But with so many distractions, interruptions, demands and activities that impact our day it makes it hard to sit down and read God’s Word.
    Reading the Bible is a struggle for most of us, but opening God’s Word and taking time to listen and understand what God has to say is one of the most important blessings we have to build that relationship with Him.

  • It’s been a while since my neighbor lady has wreaked havoc on my life.
    However, this past week she made up for lost time.
    To bring you up to speed on who my neighbor lady is: She’s my evil twin, my alter ego, an overbearing, intrusive buttinsky mother who has trouble remembering that once the umbilical cord is cut moments after birth, it should not and cannot ever be reattached and it is futile and foolish to even try -- although she’s been trying for more than 40 years.

  • Plant collectors have long appreciated orchids and African violets for their winter bloom cycle.  
    I have amassed a collection of both and they help me get through the winter with their colorful interest. But violets and orchids are not the only classes of plants that can deliver in the winter; think succulents.
