Dr. W's Reflections...

          I’m thankful that we, as a church family, believe that the experience of “church” is not just another commodity to be consumed in our American cultural experience. And, I’m thankful that we believe that “church” involves more than just active attendance at worship services but is all about faithful engagement in the life we are blessed to share together as a church family.

          Let’s remember–we are all products of God’s grace! Since the love and mercy of God have found us, we are now the bridges over which others walk to find salvation in Jesus Christ. You and I have a story to tell because God has given us his story to tell!

          Lord, send people to us and send us to people. 

The Lord be with you,



GOD’S LOVE AND OUR LOVE (1 John 4:7-12)     

          “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.”

          How do we know that God loves us? God sent his one and only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world so that we might live through him. To demonstrate selfless, sacrificial love, God sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

          How do we show our love for God? Well, since “love comes from God,” we choose to love one another. In fact, we willingly accept the obligation to “love one another” with the selfless, sacrificial love that God has showed us. When you and I love each other, “God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”
