Follow Me

By | Sermons | No Comments
Jesus often told people, "Follow me." The immediate context may have lead to a party, as it did for Matthew, but ultimately this meant that they person gave up their life and put their full trust in fulfillment and joy in Jesus.

Inauguration day is right around the corner, and I wanted to offer some thoughts as it seems that all have given their opinion and many more are protesting the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

MLK Day: Comfort or Christ?

By | Blog | No Comments

Happy MLK day! As a person who grow up after the main thrust of the civil rights movement, I was ignorant to much of the plight of Martin Luther King Jr. and what he sacrificed for his convictions. I looked up his history and found that there were about 9 overt attempts on his life. From a stabbing, to bombings, to…
