Come to National Back to Church Sunday

Lately, everything seems to be increasing except for church attendance. Unemployment is on the rise. Gas prices are skyrocketing. A trip to the grocery store can end in sticker shock. But despite the tough financial times, people just don't seem to be turning to God.

Admiration of Jesus' life: One without sin

What do we want for our children

When I was growing up, like many of you, we were what I considered poor. We primarily wore hand-me-downs. At Christmas, we unwrapped one special present and then some type of new clothes – always underwear and socks.

Seek truth to avoid misjudging

As human beings, we love to pronounce judgment on a lot of things. What is interesting is that we like to voice our judgment on things that really don't amount to much – sometimes even arguing passionately.
