"Now I plead with you brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement." 1 Corinthians 1:10 This weekend, I am beginning the yearly…

This morning during staff devotions I ministered from Proverbs 5:13-14-"I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me.  I was on the verge of total ruin in the midst of the assembly and congregation". Often the people who seemed to be learning the most from the…

Thanks to the many people who came out last night to make Judy’s celebration excellent!  Thanks to the congregational care team for all of the food, calls, and care, (Nadie, I heard the turkey lasagna was great!) the parking attendants, the ushers, greeters, our maintenance, housekeeping, and office staff who worked above and beyond, and…

What absolutely incredible services we have had!  Sunday night, 50 hard core Christians were baptized in freezing cold water, the service was packed out, and energy was amazing!

Last night Connie and I had a great time at the New Year’s Eve party sponsored by the Hispanic community at Living Word.  Thanks to Kevin and Lucia Wilberding and all those who organized the event, and thanks to Jose and Dyana Paredes for teaching us all to Salsa and Merengue!  The food was great…

What an honor to have Commissioner Lindy Brown with us this past weekend to say "Thank You" for the work that you did at the Helen Wright Center!  Also, it was great to have the leaders from the Center with us as well, so that we could say "Thank You" again for all of the…
