John 11 Facing the death of her beloved brother, she was confronted with a crisis. She was a believer, but her brother had been sick. And Jesus came too late to rescue him. “I am the resurrection and the life,” He proclaimed. “Do you believe this?” What a great story to remember on this Easter […]
Matthew 26:6-13, John 11:55-12:11 Jesus will soon enter the city of Jerusalem, with the crowds proclaiming “Hosanna!” The Pharisees continue to find a way to put Him to death.

Romans 12:9-13 Curly, in the movie “City Slickers,” had these words of wisdom for Mitch, who was struggling with the purpose of his life: “One thing. Just one thing.

Yet that mindset fails to […]
Psalm 41 Sometimes — or most of the time — life does not seem to be a “bowl of cherries.” We hear the saying “God is good all the time and all the time God is good” and we wonder. As Roger put it in the Adult Bible Fellowship recently, we study the Bible so […]
Philippians 4:10-13 When I was in the high school choir in 19**, we performed a song called “The Twelve Days After Christmas.” It began, “On the first day after Christmas, my true love and I had a fight.” The song continued to describe either inferior gifts (the “Gold Rings” turned her fingers green) or […]
Special guest, Jim Myers is a missionary serving in the Ukraine. He brings a wonderful message from Numbers 6:22-27.
Matthew 2 He was an avid builder, even initiating the rebuilding of the Temple. But he was also a friend of Rome – a position that gained no friends among the Jews. He reigned when Jesus was born – an event that should have been a non-event in the world’s eyes. Then, Herod met the […]
