A July Hiatus

Summer has arrived and with it VBS, swimming, family vacations, cook outs, graduation parties, and so much more. The summer brings transition; school is out for the children, and some workplaces allow for summer dress code, some even shorten the work day. This July the children’s ministry will be adjusting things as well. We will be taking a mid-week hiatus. A hiatus is defined as: a pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process. There will be no Wednesday evening children’s ministry offered from July 1st until August 8th. Sunday mornings will continue as normal. I recall hearing...

The Awanian Revival

By Pastor Domenico Danesi After 4 years of the Titus 2 model for the children’s mid-week there was need for a revival. As I looked around on Wednesday evenings in 2017 we were averaging 10-12 children and half of them were 10 or 11 years old, meaning they will be moving on from children’s ministry in 1 or 2 years. The nursery would have 1 to 3 children most Wednesdays and extinction was near if a change was not implemented. Enter AWANA (A Workman And Not Ashamed).  As time was passing and Wednesdays were dying I met with Doug,...

Relational Spring Cleaning

It’s April! I love the Springtime. New life, new opportunity. Just like a good Spring cleaning, we as parents, spouses, and followers of Christ need to clean up our own personal lives and walks. Right now marriages are struggling and families are being destroyed. It’s time to “clean up” the dirt and decay that has collected on our marriage vows and our commitment to parenting. Husbands and wives, I challenge you to be transparent with your spouse. I challenge you to be open and honest about your intimacy with them. Is it need of repair? Are you communicating about...

Spent

The Apostle Paul in his second letter to the church at Corinth wrote this: “And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.” (2 Corinthians 12:15) “Spent” is the theme of this year’s Deep Wells Parenting Conference. I think any parent can relate to being “spent”. Over the years many have said to my wife and me, “I don’t know how you do it” in reference to raising a large family. My response is often “I don’t know how either.” Normally I get a chuckle...

  • Cleansing … It’s An Inside Job
    It is significant to note that in the days of Hezekiah’s reformation (2 Chron 29:1-5), they began the cleansing of the house of the Lord in the inner part. Before there can be any pure work of God accomplished, our inner man must be cleansed. Paul writes about cleansing ourselves “from all filthiness of the […]
  • Upright Living
    “Shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.” The Hebrew root of the English word “upright” means straight, even, or right. Webster’s Dictionary defines upright as a strict adherence to moral principles. As followers of Jesus we, above all people, are to be honest and scrupulous in all of our ways. The psalmist […]
  • Are you Listening?
    As soon as He was alone, His followers, along with the twelve, began asking Him about the parables. And He was saying to them, “To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables, so that while seeing, they may see and not perceive, […]
  • Access To God
    To have access to God means that you and I have the ability to communicate or approach the Lord at will. Jesus Christ has made God the Father accessible. Each and every child of God is now able to have personal fellowship with the Lord. We can bring all of our prayers and needs to […]
