As Unto The Lord

website template-01

When it comes to serving God, our attitude is important. One of the main points of Jesus’s sermon on the mount was that our thoughts matter…our attitude matters. He taught that there are not just sins of the hands, but also sins of the heart/mind. This wasn’t a new concept; however, since Deuteronomy 6:5 says […]

What is Father’s Day?

father's day-01

It’s a day to celebrate a mentor, an advisor, counselor, coach, provider, teacher, leader, and entertainer. These many different roles showcase love, sacrifice, wisdom, strength, determination, boldness, and humor. These characteristics all work in harmony to provide stability in a very unstable world. There isn’t anything more stable than a Godly, 5’10”, Popeye forearmed, competitive, […]

One thing that I have always shared an admiration for, are museums. Museums house some of the worlds most valuable artifacts. They are home to histories greatest stories. Each item has a story. Each relic has a memory. When I attend any museum, and I am perusing through every aisle like a kid in a […]

In 2 Corinthians 3:15, Apostle Paul admonished the church at Corinth to self examination. He exhorted them to take inventory of their […]



The Hyphen class just returned from a life changing weekend at the sectional Hyphen retreat. We were blessed by a powerful move of the Holy Spirit and the ministry of Bro. Scott Shelton. The presence of God was so tangible that the evening devotions lasted well into the night. One of the most profound things we […]

Be Worthy of the Calling You Have Received


We have all received a calling from Jesus to work as apart of the body of Christ. Some of us may be ministers, some of us may be choir members or musicians, and there are some of us that work in the nursery or teach Sunday School. Some serve and prepare dinners. Some clean the […]
