Little Church, Big Heart

Little Church, Big Heart

You have been hearing me say for some time now that “We are a little church with a big heart”.  I sincerely believe that. Being small doesn’t mean that we are helpless.

Spiritual “Due Diligence”

Spiritual "Due Diligence"

The term “Due Diligence” is used in the business world to describe the careful examination of all issues involved in a transaction. A failure to exercise due diligence could be a financial disaster. “Due Diligence” is also important in spiritual matters.

Find Words of Wisdom in Proverbs

Find Words of Wisdom in Proverbs

The Book of Proverbs is filled with wise sayings. Proverbs 25:11, for example, says, “A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” This single verse could be a commentary on every wise saying in the entire book.  You don’t have to spend a great deal of time reading Proverbs to […]
