A Moment in Time

Good Morning and Welcome to the Northeast Church of Christ this Easter morning! We are excited to worship with you today. Easter is a time where many people come together to remember the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It also sets the stage for one of my favorite passages in the Bible. According to the Scriptures and the Greek text in Luke 24:1 we find that on…

Camping in the Wilderness

Spring has arrived, well at least technically according to the calendar. What it really means is that winter is behind us and warmer days are ahead of us. One of the popular activities of warmer weather is camping in the woods with a group of friends, family, or through a camp.

More than 3,000 Christians were killed worldwide last year for their faith, twice as many as the previous year, a report by the charity Open Doors has found.

Calm Down Tough Guy

Hebrews 4:13 “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” Ole tough-guy is at is again. Word is out he is at a store and sees the owner of a local deli. “I got the …&#$%** lousiest sub last night at your place!”  We all kind of wonder what’s up with tough-guy, but who wants to ask?…

Come to the Feast by Gene Taylor

Because of the long hours I spend in my office, many of them alone, sometimes things get a little quiet. The radio on in the background breaks the silence but it is still somewhat lonely. While stretching or taking a break, I usually go to the exterior doors near my office and look out their windows since the only window in the study is quite high and about all I can see…
