Thanksgiving: More Than a Feast!

Did you feel that cold air that came through the area at the end of last month? Around our house, when those first few cold days show up, it’s time for fires in the backyard or screened porch. Sitting around those early fall fires, there’s a sense of warmth and gratitude that stirs within us […]


Living Fascinated

This month’s Pastor’s Perspective is delivered by Dr. Kyle Searcy, Fresh Anointing House of Worship I am awestruck by our God-given ability to define our inward reality. As humans, we are uniquely sovereign over our internal disposition, i.e., our frame of mind and emotional proclivity. Evidence of this ability to define our internal nature is […]


The Devoted Mind Seeking God’s Face in a World of Distraction by Kris Lundgaard

We make a lot of all the distractions that come with life in the modern, always-on, electronic world.

Why Keep Digging?

Recently, some astonishing archaeological discoveries have lent credence to the pages of the Scriptures and provided evidence of the authority of Scripture. I would say that we regularly hear, see, or read of discoveries, in a variety of scientific areas, including archaeology, where there are conclusions that can be drawn that affirm Scripture. Perhaps you’re […]


Yes, You Play an Important Part

Watching actors on stage bow at the end of a play as the audience applauds and noticing their exuberant faces has always touched me deeply. Knowing there had been many hours of collective effort, I could sense their camaraderie, feel their sense of accomplishment, and see their pride in being part of something bigger than […]
