From the Pulpit:

We are all struggling dealing with the world situation, the situation in Texas, in our county and in Palestine.  Let us not forget that God is in control and that we must be faithful in our spiritual and prayer life.  Just because we cannot gather in our church building, does not mean that we cannot worship God.

We should be thanking God every day for our health and happiness.  Open your Bible and read a few chapters every day.  I've heard it said that when you read your Bible the devil drops to his knees. 

I am working very hard to make it possible for our church to broadcast a live-streaming worship service on YouTube.  We have purchased the equipment and are recording the services at the present time.  The services are now available on YouTube but as yet, we are not able to livestream due to financial and privacy issues.  I have set up the links and have opened a paypal account for our church so you can donate.
