See God At Work In All Things

Springtime in Texas can be wonderful and can be difficult.  Trees are budding out.  Leaves are appearing again on trees.  Flowers are blooming.  Families start grilling outdoors again.  Sunrises and sunsets are amazing!  Small pieces of fruit begin to grow on trees.  Grass turns green again.  Lawnmowers can be heard in neighborhoods.  Animals give birth to sweet babies. Vegetable gardens are planted. All of this is a result of a very crafty Creator who happens to be the One True…

He Has Risen

The Holy Week focuses on the last week of Jesus’ life leading up to His crucifixion.  It begins with Palm Sunday where we celebrate His triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  How quickly the people’s cheers of praise turned into shouts of “Crucify Him!”  Jesus loved the people even knowing they would betray Him.  Jesus spent His last week teaching and loving His disciples.  He spent time praying for them and for us.  He shared an intimate last meal with His closest…

Easter Is Coming

I love the changing of the seasons.  It reminds me of what an incredible artist God is.  Spring is here and that means Easter is coming soon.  Easter is so much more than getting new clothes and shoes, going to church, finding eggs, gathering with family, and eating too much food.  Easter is a celebration that is found at the very core of Christianity.  Without Easter, our faith is empty.  But thankfully, Easter is coming, and it is real!  Easter…

Things Are Changing

Things are so different than they were one year ago.  We have learned that different does not always mean worse.  Some of the changes that have come from this pandemic are good.  People have truly learned the value of proper handwashing.  People stay home when they are sick now. But some things have not been as good.  We have not been able to be together as a church family like we used to.  Well, things are changing my friends!  There…

Kids’ Summer Camps

Last week, we were able to share the exciting news that we are finally able to open up our on-campus ministries!  As if that was not exciting enough news, we have more great news this week.  Are you ready for this?  Drum roll please…..   You can now register your child for summer camp at Camp Copass!  That is right my friends, we plan to take two groups of children to summer camp this year.  The theme of both camps is…

It’s Time

Do you remember the old commercial for Mervyn’s when everyone was waiting anxiously for them to open?  There was such joy and excitement when they finally did.  This is how I feel.  I, like many others, have been waiting anxiously for that joyous and exciting day when many of our ministries are open and available on campus live and in person.  Well guess what my friends?  IT’S TIME!!!! Sunday, March 21st, we will be offering many of our ministries live…

Pray For Your Children

In Nehemiah 4:14, scripture states, “After I made an inspection, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials, and the rest of the people, ‘Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the great and awe-inspiring Lord, and fight for your countrymen, your sons and daughters, your wives and homes.’”  As parents, I can think of no mightier way to fight than on our knees with our heads bowed in prayer!  As parents, it seems like a given that we…

In All Things Give Thanks

My friends, this past week has been such a huge challenge for many and, being truthful, it isn’t over yet. Some have been mildly inconvenienced, while others have been devastated. During times of hardship, it can be so easy to slip back into the habit of complaining and forgetting to give thanks. God’s perfect word for every situation, including SNOVID-19, is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 which says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks, for this is…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is a week where pretty little cards, sometimes with candy attached, are being exchanged in classrooms, moms and dads are having date nights, and many children are waking to surprises expressing that they are loved.  It is the week of Valentine’s Day.  February is the month of love and Valentine’s Day is at the heart of it all (pun intended)! But what if you do not go to school?  Or what if you do not get pretty cards?  What…

The Month Of Love

We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 February is sometimes called the month of love.  What better time to challenge ourselves, as we look at and evaluate how well we are doing at expressing our love to God and to others.  1 John 4:19 says, “We love because He first loved us.”  It is mind blowing to think that the Creator of the world chose us and loved us before we loved Him back.  What a model…

One Of Your Most Important Mission Fields

Deuteronomy 6:5-7 gives us, as Christian parents, our job description, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Parenting can be hard.  The hours are long and…

Gather Together For Worship

I want to do my part to encourage my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to keep on keeping on, to make the effort to come to worship, and to show their love and good works towards their fellow man.  Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you…
