News & Events

From the Pastor’s Desk

For something to grow, we must feed it what it needs. It does not matter whether plant or animal, all of creation needs to be fed. However, what we feed the living things in our lives does matter. From plants and animals to our own bodies, we must feed them good, healthy, and beneficial food. Our souls are no different! So, what do you regularly feed your soul to develop and grow HOPE? I believe the following passages of Scripture are essential and foundational to that end.
Psalm 119:114
114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.
Psalm 119: 147
147 I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope
in your words.
Matthew 4:4
4 But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say,
‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes
from the mouth of God.”
How much time do we spend with God’s Word? How do we allow it to shape our identity, our world view, our practices, our living? How do we allow God’s Word to be our HOPE? I want to challenge us as a church to make it a priority to spend time daily in the Word of God. Allow it to accomplish its purpose in our lives. Allow it to give us HOPE amid our everyday life. Will you join me?

In Christ’s Grace,
Pastor Bill Case
