    The Surpassing Worth
    06.28.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

    This is such a great memory verse from our text this week: Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord (Philippians 3:8). The sermon title is “The Surpassing Worth.” What (or who) is the...

      06.23.22 | Women | by Tammy Beals

      Independence Day is a fun, colorful, noisy, patriotic time of the year.  Family and friends use it as a good excuse to gather while cooking out, making ice cream, swapping stories, and connecting with others. Our family had a special tradition...

        The Palms of My Hands
        06.23.22 | Women | Devotional Thoughts | by Lindi Collins

        I work with my hands. In essence, my hands are the same as yours. We each have a palm, fingers, and thumb. Even though we all share similar-looking hands, we have unique attributes in the form of our fingerprints and the creases in our palms...

          06.21.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

          In this week’s text from Philippians 2:12-30, Paul told the church at Philippi to “work out your own salvation in fear and trembling.” We will consider what this means, why Paul wrote it and how it’s done.

            06.07.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

            The intent of these brief notes is to help us prepare for worship. Preachers do their work—I want you to do your preparation, too. Our daily texts relate to the sermon in some fashion (sometimes you may have to connect the dots). Always look for...

              Spiders & Snakes
              06.01.22 | Women | by Tammy Beals

                  05.31.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                  We prepare to preach a sermon—those who get the most out of it are those who arrive prepared to hear it. Your daily readings contain some wonderful texts this week, but please look at the context for the Book of Philippians. Paul’s conversion...

                    Our English word “axiom” comes from a Greek word, “axios,” which means “worthy.” An axiom is a pithy saying worth remembering and applying. Paul uses “axios” in Ephesians: “I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy...
