Accelerate 2018 Retreat Recap

On August 24th-26th our Accelerate Youth Group went on a retreat. This year we stayed at the beautiful Asbury Retreat Center on Silver Lake in Perry, NY.  We had 11 students in attendance and 5 adult leaders. We spent the weekend hanging out, eating, kayaking, swimming, playing games, worshipping, sleeping (very little, to the disappointment of our adult leaders), chatting, learning, and just being alone with God. We arrived at camp on Friday about 6pm and the students had enough time to get their items in their room before we all had dinner together. After dinner we all went...

10 Tips for Successful Christian Parenting

God has made each one of our children special in his or her own unique way. My role as a parent isn’t helping my child be perfect or to become more like his or her peers.

  • For Adulterers Only … A Call Home
    How would you react if you found your spouse lying with another man or woman? What emotions would arise? Anger? Hurt? Bitterness? I’m sure that just the thought of this happening enrages you. Did you ever stop to think about adultery of another kind – spiritual adultery? James (4:4) wrote: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses! Know […]
  • “Neither Know We What To Do, But Our Eyes Are Upon Thee”
    This passage is found at the end of 2 Chronicles 20:12. More than we would like to admit, these words are very familiar to us in our daily walks: “Lord, we just don’t know what to do.” Unclear direction from the Lord never means a lack of fellowship with the Lord. In this chapter, Jehoshaphat […]
  • True Love
    The Song of Solomon is one of the books of the Bible that is often overlooked. Its pointed love theme nearly causes one to blush. Sadly, it may sound like “the way it used to be” with us. This, like all other Scripture, is God inspired for the same reasons any other book is written. […]
  • Enduring Is Not Enjoying
    Although we know that our faith in Christ is an objective, not a subjective feeling, we often find ourselves (or at least I do) mistaking our feelings as an indication of having inferior faith. There’s this little voice inside that conveys a message to my brain (a false message, I might add!) that when I […]
