Sunday was a special day. Between services, families from our church traveled around Fort Dodge, blessing whomever they met – paying for meals, praying people, and hearing their stories. A little later, our senior high bell choir played in our second service, and it was so...

Our Advent Devotional book is in people’s hands all over the town. (You can pick up your copy at church if you don’t have one yet.) I hope you enjoy reading it each day. One church member realized that many of the devotionals had to do with fear. Austin’s sermon this past...

During our Sunday night adult study called “Breathe” we have looked at making room for Sabbath in our lives. Pricilla Shirer’s teaching is phenomenal and I have learned so much from this study. I know the people attending would say the same thing. This week, Pricilla told us a...

Since I’ve last written, we’ve all experienced an amazing day. In fact, this isn’t just an amazing day; it’s the most amazing day we get every year. The day when Daylight Savings Time ends. It’s the day that gives a gift to everybody, regardless of background...
