A Play within the Play

Isaiah 42:1-9 by W Paul Jones The church divides its year into two “rehearsal” periods for a drama that discloses the meaning of everything. The plot unfolds in three acts: promise/ gift/response. The first rehearsal is titled Advent/Christmas/Epiphany and the second Lent/Easter/Pen­tecost. During the intervening thirty-plus weeks, we live out that drama in our “ordinary” daily life.

Pastor John’s View for April 2019

Pastor John’s View In February, we spent our Sundays together talking about prayer; why we pray, having a love for prayer, and having a burden to pray for others.

If you missed one or more of these messages, they are available in the Archives, along with a large library of other information, videos, and activities.…

April Financial Report

Finance Report As  you  can  see  from  the Financial Report Summary below for February, our church is about $10,000 behind to Date.  Although February did not fall as far behind as January, it was behind by $4,300.  All the departments within the church held the line for February expenses and even came in $4,000 below budget; the area where we, as a congregation, need to work a little harder is on the giving end.  The good news is that Lakeview…

PALS Tip Make friends with your neighbors. Oftentimes, we don’t have family nearby when medics and others need relevant information for our care. A neighbor can be responsible for passing along the names and phone numbers of family members in order to help move professional care givers along smoothly. Also, Boswell Hospital has Vials of Life in which pertinent information can be stored to direct care givers to call doctors, legal representatives and family members when necessary.
