They will know us by our love

Be generous

When we were planting a new church in Redfield, I would continually share the vision to our church and pray for God to supply the finances necessary to do so.

How to treat someone who sins against you

Beyond Christmas

Every Christmas season, Christians give thanks to God for his love and grace, showered upon us through the birth of Jesus. We give to those in need, and we watch heart-warming movies about family and romance. We sing beautiful carols such as “Silent Night” that point to the joy of our salvation through Jesus’ life, death resurrection and future coming.
