Our Church

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Matthew 22:37-39 (ESV)


We would like to thank all of our church family and friends for the wonderful trip to Disney World. It was a blessing at a stressful time of the year.

Thank you,
Jana, Beth and Becca

January 9, 2017

I was certainly glad to look out my window today and to see the sun shining. It was a welcome  sight. I have also come to realize that I am too old, too clumsy and certainly not agile enough to  try to maneuver large patches of ice. I still like the thought of a little snow but I have seen all  the ice I need for one winter.

It was a difficult decision not having church yesterday. I think when it is your favorite day of the  week you really sort of hate to miss it. I am glad that going to church has never felt like an  obligation to me. Our sidewalks and the surrounding area just did not get enough sun to melt  much of the ice. The sidewalk outside of the office doors is still.not fully melted. Missing this  past Sunday let each of you start the New Year thinking about how blessed we are. Every time  our heater kicked on I certainly knew how lucky I was,

In 2017 I hope that each of you will begin to think about the word REFRESH. I have been  plagued for some time that as Christians we do not do a good job of finding ways to refresh  both our body and our spirit. I think about the Psalms and the times that David was in need of  refreshing. The times that he cried out to God asking for the gift of a renewed spirit were at  times of great weakness.

One of our goals for 2017 is that we are going to look at the many ways the bible says that we are to refresh ourselves. Through the way we live, the stress we allow in our life, the food we eat and the amount of one on one time we spend with God. Each of these areas can lead to a lack of refreshing the body and the spirit. I think 2017 needs to be a time when we take care of ourselves and help others to take care of themselves. I'm excited to see where God leads us.

I have been asked before why we do not do big stewardship campaigns in the fall each year. I am a believer that God's people will give according to the way that they are able to. One nice thing about having an intelligent congregation is that you are aware that utilities, insurance and things such as that have to be paid. I'm asking now for you to examine what you give each year to the church. If you are able please pray and see if you can increase that amount by 3 per cent. Our insurance and power have gone up a little more than we were expecting. Just look and see if you are able.

This Saturday at ten in the morning we need a large group to get all the Advent decorations  down and put away. The more we have here the faster this project happens. You do not need  to be strong, creative or expected to climb a ladder just willing and eager to help put away what  is so special to the church. Ne are always done before noon so I hope that any of you that can  will plan to help take down and put away. I have checked the weather. I don't think ice is in the  forecast. Who knows' It is Alabama.

See you Sunday!! I
