Pastor's Bookshelf - March 2017

We’ve all done it. Someone comes to us with something they are struggling with and instead of walking with them through the struggle we respond with a simple sentence all wrapped up and topped with a beautiful bow. “Ta-da” we say.

From Tim's Desk - March 2017

This year, the season of Lent begins on March 1 with Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time for us to journey closely behind Jesus as he prepares to head to the cross and the resurrection. It is a time for us to focus on our spiritual selves, our true selves in Christ Jesus.
