Senior Sunday

  Senior Sunday is upon us again as we celebrate the achievements of our High School Seniors this morning. Today we celebrate with Faith Fulkerson, Jackson Hodge, and Kevin McQueen as they close the door on one chapter of life and open a new chapter. Some people say that High School is the best time of your life while others say that there is more happiness ahead.…

Scripture of Hope

“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragements of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4 ESV Things don’t always go well in life. Right now we have a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old child and things don’t always go right. It could be a child who won’t nap, might run away through the…

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. I always looked forward to camping out at Ganderbrook every summer, catching up with friends,…

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?…

A Real Role Model

The man who shuffled to the microphone “didn’t look strong enough to bunt, much less hit a home run. Pale and thin from his liver transplant surgery nearly five weeks ago, Mickey Mantle walked slowly, painfully” (Dave Anderson, N.Y. Times News Service, AOL, July 12, 1995). How different was the man I saw conducting that news conference than the one I saw…

Present Hope

Before I really get going I want to thank everyone who made Friend’s Day possible for us last week! It was a huge success! The auditorium was pretty full, the food was good, the fellowship was even better and people invited friends to join us. Thank you for helping make Friend’s Day a big success this year. We especially want to thank those who helped plan, set up, clean…

Be Bold

In the book of Acts we find a story about Peter and John before the Council. (Acts 4) One of the verses that really sticks out to me is verse 13. It says, “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished…” The verse continues on but this first part is important to us. It takes away an excuse a lot…
