Robert Stovall

As you may remember, we began early preparations for a trip to Ireland set for June 25 through July 4 in 2018! Well, we have been very successful in filling our complement of 50 people from our church. In fact, we are at 53. Therefore, IF you are still interested in going, we have now created a waiting list and will be glad to put you on it. Read more.

Sid75Spring Cleaning . . . Not Just Cleaning Your Home, But Fine-Tuning Your Estate Planning As Well

Sid Johnston

There are many enjoyable aspects of life that come along with spring: wildflowers, warmer temperatures, greenery in abundance, deeply religious holidays filled with eggs and bunnies galore, and a general merriment that summer is right around the corner. However, one such chore associated with spring is just that . . . a chore — the dreaded spring cleaning! It is a common practice in most homes to perform a deep cleaning around the house in the spring to clear up the grime leftover from winter and start fresh with a new year and a new spring. Why stop with just your home? Consider giving your life and estate planning a spring cleaning as well. Read more.

Andrew75Youth Ministry from the Margins

Andrew Mochrie

This week is our last blog on approaches to youth ministry and we saved the best for last in my opinion. Our idea of youth ministry is greatly wrapped up in cultural assumptions and locations in society. We sometimes forget that other people see and experience the world vastly differently from us. The Liberation Approach to youth ministry seeks to see the gospel through the point of view of other people, specifically the marginalized and poor. Read more.
