Dial 9 for Heartfelt Worship and Praise

We’ve all been there. We’re in the doctor’s office. It’s taking longer than expected. We’re late for another appointment, so we ask the receptionist if we can use the phone. We dial the number twice and nothing happens. We ask in frustration, “How do I dial out?” The receptionist says, “you need to dial 9 first.” Making spiritual comparison and application of the above…

Telephone

What kind of telephone would you expect to get if you paid $2400.00 for it? You would anticipate getting the latest in technology, with all the bells and whistles right?  It would do tricks and preform functions that would blow you and everyone else away! The last thing you would expect would be just a plain old rotary phone.  You know: attached to the wall by a cord;…

From the Elders

Recently the elders and ministers have been working together to glean from God’s word some specific goals for spiritual growth at Northeast in 2018. Richard Bonner shared those goals during the Sunday morning service on December 31. However, we know many were traveling or absent that day and we want to communicate these goals to everyone in the congregation. If you…

Addicted to Chapstick

I smile when I think about it. As a matter of fact, I am grinning while I am writing this. I had overheard some of the young people at church talking. No, I was not eavesdropping on their conversation. I heard one of them say something about me. They said that I must be addicted to Chapstick. At first I thought what an odd thing to say. I wondered what made them come to…

Attention to Detail

“Therefore we must pay closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it” Hebrews 2:1 ESV One of the songs that E likes to listen to is “Colonel Hathi’s Elephant March”, “Hup two three four. Keep it up two three four!” from the Jungle Book. The elephants are on patrol looking out for danger in the jungle. The elephants stop marching and line up. Colonel…

Abiding in Christ

In John 15:1-17, Jesus speaks to us about abiding in Him. He draws a beautiful picture of an olive vine with its many branches. We expect to see each branch filled with beautiful fruit but it’s not. Instead, we are confronted with branches that are failing to produce, branches that have the potential to bear fruit, but for some reason they are empty. He then tells us how…

Why Do You Have Faith?

Good morning and welcome! This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Have you ever been asked about why you go to church, or why you have faith in God?  Hopefully all of us that attend regularly could answer that question clearly.  We use phrases like “I believe that Jesus is the Son of God” and “I knew I was sinful and wanted to go to…

Look How Far You Have Come

Road trips can be a lot of fun. Ever since I graduated High School back in 2010 I have been on a lot of road trips. Most of them consisted of the 24 hour journey from New Hampshire to Arkansas while some of them were shorter in nature. One thing that always intrigued me was how far you can go in a short amount of time. You sit in a car for four or five hours and then look…

Happy Fall!

What a week!  First of all, I’d like to say a big thank you to Mandy Cline and Glenda Fannon for all the work they put in to plan and organize our Fall Festival!  Also, I am so grateful for everyone else that bought supplies, brought things from home, ran the different booths (especially Jane for risking traumatic head injuries as the kids whipped their ‘clothes pin…

Teach a Child While They are Young

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 Being a Daddy is pretty cool. It also comes with a lot of challenges and things you wouldn’t think of before. Emmett is always teaching me something new. It might be how I interact with him or how I need to treat him in different situations. Right now he is obsessed…
