by Dennis Gulledge

    Bill Brandstatter             During this COVID-19 crisis, there are three words that should mean more to us now than they ever did before.

    by Wayne Brewer

      The Psalmist wrote: “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever” (Psalm 107:1).

          by Dennis Gulledge

                        Last week, when he live streamed our All Comers Bible class covering the books of Ezra & Nehemiah, Wayne Brewer made many good points.

            RANDOM THOUGHTS ON PREACHING

            by Dennis Gulledge

                          I love preaching and I try to love preachers! A person doesn’t spend forty-six (and counting) years of his life doing something he hates. At least I don’t think so anyway. Wisdom would compel you to take a different course long before the passing of over four decades. And at this point you look […]

              by Dennis Gulledge

                 Brent Smith With stay at home orders issued by governors across our great land, when quarantine is self-imposed by many who are afraid of getting sick or spreading disease – why are so many churches jumping through hoops to figure out a way to assemble and be responsible good citizens? It’s not surprising that a […]

                  by Noah Icenhour

                    Teens live in a world with many struggles. They have many hard questions they have to as themselves. How should they interact with their friends of different religions? How can they stay away from drugs, but still minister to their friends that are using? How should they treat those who completely reject God?  This reaches […]

                    ADJUSTING TO THE TIMES – How Are We Handling the Isolation?

                    by Dennis Gulledge

                                  Perhaps I had heard the word “pandemic” before, but it did not lodge in my memory. Well, it’s lodged there now. Eddie Cloer said to me the other day that if you had asked him what he thought might have the potential to affect us this way he would never have guessed that it […]
