Even though I’ve been out of the local pastorate for around 10 months, I’m a pastor at heart. I try to think like a pastor in my current position. With that being said, if I was still pastoring a local church, I would follow the federal, state, and local recommendations being presented and updated on […]

Greetings, Your state missions staff continues to monitor the quickly evolving Coronavirus situation and appreciate your prayers as we process all of the information coming from federal and state sources. We posted information and suggestions yesterday regarding Sunday services. While many of these are still valid, the Governor’s proclamation today certainly tweaks and changes some […]

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. – Luke 2:19 (NIV) Christmas is filled with wonder. I love seeing the wonder of Christmas in a child’s eyes. Wonder at Christmas is as old as the night of Jesus’ birth. The shepherds wondered at the announcement of the angels. Mary […]
… and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” (Luke 1:33 NIV) What if God sent Christmas cards? He did send Christmas messages. By that I mean the messages of the angels are God’s messages. For example, in Luke 1:33 we read, “His Kingdom will never end!” What a message! What […]
