What a joyous delight to see young

Satan may be winning a bunch of

battles right now,

but make no

mistake…

God wins the war.

 

 


 

“God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons we could learn in no other way.”

  ~ C.S. Lewis

 

 

 

“God, please make my days useful, my nights restful, my home peaceful, and my efforts fruitful.”  ~ unknown
“So that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
 ~ Col. 1:10

 

 

I would challenge you to live in the grace of God on a daily basis.  It is sufficient for all of our struggles, and it is an answer to all of our adversity.  Thanks be to God for His sufficient grace.
~ Bro. Wayne Jones

 

 

There are more broken-hearted people in our church pews than we’ll
ever know.  So, the words we use in teaching, basic communicating, greeting, and preaching, must be hope-driven. 

Bro. Jon Warnes

See Romans 15:13

 

 

 


Inscription on John Wayne’s tombstone

“Tomorrow is one of the most important things in life.  Comes into us at midnight very clean.  It’s perfect when it arrives, and it puts itself into our hands.  It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.”

 


 

John 13:34 (“they will know us by our love”)

 Heb 10:23–25 (“encourage one another”)

 


"I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection.  Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."

Michael J. Fox

 


"Our worst days are never so bad that we’re beyond the reach of God’s grace,

and our best days are never so good that we’re beyond the need of God’s love.”

~ Author Unknown, contributed by Joe Whitner


 

"Concern for someone else is a good remedy for taking the mind off one's own troubles."

 


 

No God.  No hope.  Know God.  Know hope.

No God.  No peace.  Know God.  Know peace.

 


 

"Worshipping together is a unifying process, and time spent together outside of the worship setting

contributes to growth in our relationships with each other."

 


 

“Life becomes easier and more beautiful when

we can see the good in other people.”     ~ Roy T. Bennett

 

Wash your hands and say your prayers,

Because

Germs and Jesus are everywhere.

~Unknown~

 

It’s never a mistake when God is your first love.

It’s only a mistake when He is not.

Matt 22:37–38, Rev 2:1–4, Matt 6:33

Bro. Jon Warnes

 


On your best day, you are a child of God.

On your worst day, you are a child of God.

                                   ~ Bro. Jon Warnes

 


 

Dear Lord, please put your arm around my shoulders

and your hand over my mouth.
