Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

what we read

Everyday we pick up the newspaper
or hear the news on the TV
we see disasters, cruelty, criminal actions, heartache,
and just a slew of “bad” news.

How do we handle the news?
Do we worry, do we panic,
do we get angry?

“Panic is a sudden desertion of us,
and a going over to the enemy of our imagination.”
- Christian Nevell Bovee


“Stop being angry!
Turn from your rage!
Do not lose your temper—
it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed,
but those who trust in the Lord
will possess the land.
Soon the wicked will disappear.
Though you look for them,
they will be gone.
The lowly will possess the land
and will live in peace and prosperity.
- Psalm 37:8-11 NIV

“Cast all your anxiety on him
because he cares for you.”
- 1 Peter 5:7 NIV
