Awake to God's Order

We need an awakening in the church, in homes and in marriages to God's order and the unique roles He has given to marriage. We need to stop grieving the Holy Spirit and take heed to the words of the apostle Paul (Ephesians 5.14-18). As Christians, we must rise up from the dead ways of our old sinful life and awaken to the new life that God through Christ has awakened in us...

Disciple Your Children With Shaving Cream

As mentioned Sunday, our children receive take home material each week from their classes. This material is great to use for your family devotionals during the week, for times in the car or for dinner time.

The Dinner Table

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Family Worship Service

Have you ever imagined what a worship gathering back in the Old Testament or even in the first century church might have looked like? I think about that at times, especially when I read books like Nehemiah and Acts. I wonder things like, Where were the children? Did the people stand the whole time? It seems in the day of Nehemiah they did stand, and not just for forty minu...

What is lacking?

What is lacking? For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city as I directed you, namely, if any man is above reproach. Titus 1.5-6a Over the last few weeks we have been asking the question, what is lacking? Have you been asking that personally? I pray that you have been applying the question to your own li...
