If I Don't Help Them, What Will Happen to Them?
by Delman Coates on June 29th, 2023
 "What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." - Jame...  Read More

by Delman Coates on June 28th, 2023

One way we can make a lasting impact in our community is by serving those around us. ...  Read More

Avoid The Unwise
by Ministry Support on January 8th, 2021

(Ephesians 5:15-17)  When you’re under the influence of the Spirit, like we talked about yesterday, you don’t waste your time on things, activities, and people that don’t matter. Paul is affirming this m...  Read More

Coloring Inside The Lines
by Ministry Support on November 24th, 2020
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. – Proverbs 16:9  One of the first educational lessons I learned in life was to color inside the lines. It was probably in nursery school when we were given outlines of characters and crayons, and told to color. Invariably there would be times when I and some of my classmates would make a mess and color all over the place, and the ...  Read More
