Easily Offended These Days...

Posted by on in Weekly Encouragement Notes
Being-Offended-Doesnt-Make-You-Right
Welcome everyone! Glad to be with you today. Hope that you have all had a great week! We are now in the midst of the summer season and so far we have had quite the variety of happenings. Super hot days, floods or at least near floods, building damage, etc… Somewhat of a picture of life: you just never know what each day might bring.    What we can be comforted by is the consistency of Christ. In the person of Jesus, we find one that is always the same. He never changes, He never has mood swings, He never...

Kindness in a Selfish World

Posted by on in Weekly Encouragement Notes

We are moving right into the summer. Time seems to just keep speeding up and before we know it, we will be looking for jackets and gloves again. I am not rushing it, I like the warmer weather and enjoy being able to be outside doing things. Regardless of what category you fit in to, warmer, cooler, etc… the fact remains it all comes and it all goes. It is always changing.    We start a new series today simply titled the Declaration of I AM. This is a look at all the times Jesus made the statement I AM...

It is a new day and I for one am grateful for what the Lord is doing here among us. It is my prayer that all of you have had a great week and are here today and ready to come together in one accord and with one heart to worship Him and praise Him and draw closer to each other.    Yesterday, we ended our series from Proverbs. The Message was entitled: “Becoming a Tree of Life.” I think this message is a great way to wrap up this series on Wisdom and the impact that this Word should...

Fathers-Day-Print
Good morning, and for all it applies to, I hope you had a wonderful Fathers Day! It is a joy to be with you. I hope that all of you have had a great week so far. I am glad to be here today and honored to share the Message the Lord has given me.    Of all the jobs I have held in my lifetime, none have been as rewarding, as difficult, as joyful, as heartbreaking as the job of being a dad. Every emotion that exists tends to find its way into the life of a father. If...

HelloExpert
Another day the Lord has blessed us with. Thank you for joining us today. It is a privilege to be with you. I pray that all that is said and done today will be of honor and glory to God and will enrich your spiritual walk. I look forward to sharing the Message.   Experts: we often hear this word as it pertains to someone who has excelled in their particular field or chosen profession. Over the years I have met many that I would call an expert. They knew their work and did their work with precision, with excellence,...

I want to thank each of you for being here today. As always it is an honor and privilege to be with you and to bring you the Message that God has laid before me. I am truly enjoying getting to know all of you and making Colfax our home. We have been blessed since our arrival. Thank you.   Today, as part of the series from Proverbs, I am touching on a hard subject. This morning we will talk about hate. The idea that God hates something seems strange, but indeed, according to our Passage for today, He does....

It is the end of our first full month together. I am very excited about what God is doing and with all my heart, am looking forward to the days ahead. It is wonderful to see new faces each week and I have truly enjoyed being about town and getting to know those out in our community. I know the big things are in store for us and I am honored to be a small part of what we are about to do.   It is hard to escape the subject of division. Currently it is ripping to shreds our...

Good morning and welcome to FBC Colfax, we are so glad to have you here today. To all it applies to: Happy Mother’s Day. It is an honor and true joy to be with you this morning and I truly look forward to bringing you the Word and Message today.    It is no secret that the world around us is very divided right now. I guess there has always been some level of that in the course of human history. In our lifetimes and even when reading history we have learned of rivalries and even challenges over causes or...
