Effective – My One Word for 2018

I am not sure who started the one word craze but in 2015 my word was “Generous.” In 2016 it was “Focus.” I did not have one for 2017. I am not one to randomly pick a word the word has to come to me. Our associate Pastor was preaching on New Year’s Eve and […]

Resurrection of Lazarus – A Picture of The Church

 The grinding of the stone rubbing against the tomb as it is rolled away shatters the silence. Bright sunlight floods into the small cave. Lazarus takes in a deep breath as his lungs once again fill with air. His eyes open and struggle to see. The facial cloth from his burial still covers his face so […]
