Co-laborers in Christ

Dear Co-laborers in Christ, Welcome to the new year! I hope you have had some time to reflect on this past year as I suggested in the December newsletter and evaluate your efforts for God’s kingdom.

They were greatly appreciated. Do you ever wonder why we have a women’s ministry? Or why you should be part of it? Here are some thoughts. From Lifeway: Why Have a Women’s Ministry?

From the Student Minister January 2017

In the rush and whirlwind of activity this time of year, I decided to spend a little bit of time thinking back over past Christmases.

Jesus Brings Hope to Our Nation

I still remember sitting in a high school biology class when a teacher came in and shared the news with our class. That day was a sad and dark day in our nation’s history, but I am thankful that our hope was not lost on that day. Even today, in whatever situation you may be…
