Hope in the Lord

Our trip to Clovis, New Mexico, serving with Hope Children’s Home West, was a wonderful dream come true for me personally. Since our team went to Hope’s main ministry location in Tampa. FL, five years ago and I learned of their desire to have a home in the West, I have been praying for our…

Faithfulness

There are not a whole lot of things that we have control over in life. I think this whole COVID-19 deal has helped us all see that fact very painfully. However, there are a few things that we do have a lot of control over and some of those things we have total control over.…

Our Time

During this month and the next couple of months, we are focusing the attention of our theme of being Rooted in Christ to the detail of being Rooted in Christ’s Love. We began with the focus of the time and events surrounding Resurrection Sunday in which we see Jesus making His love available to us…
