CARITAS 2020

The challenges of COVID-19 have affected everyone’s life in many ways, none more so than our homeless population. We are hosting CARITAS differently this year. The ladies will not be staying with us, but they still need our help! CARITAS has asked us to provide funding to cover the meals for a week, as well as help provide paper products. You can begin bringing paper products (paper plates, cups, napkins and plastic cutlery) this Sunday evening at our Sunday Night Drive event. Just leave them beside your car,…

The Only Way: A Poem

There is no need to hide what’s true,That isn’t what Christians are called to do! When someone asks, ‘You think I’m going to Hell?’Your response should be, ‘I am, as well. If not for Jesus, the way, truth, and life,All our eternities end in strife. He is the one and only way to the Father,So stop your searching, you needn’t bother. The way is clear, the way is free,As much for you as it is for me. All religions claim…

Don’t Miss the Miracle

Don’t Miss the Miracle Guest Blog Post Written By Tracey Kelly I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how we tend to miss the miracles in our lives. For instance, I had a conversation with someone recently who encouraged me on how much I’ve grown and how far I’ve come over the last few years. My immediate response to her was how I tend to miss the miracle of that because it took so much time. It didn’t just happen at…
