  • John Newton (1725-1807) wrote the words to the hymn “Amazing Grace.” God’s grace reached down and touched Newton, a slave trader, and saved his soul. Read the words of the hymn to see how the Lord saved Newton.

    Through the years many others have been pulled from a sinful life and had their feet placed on the solid rock. God’s amazing grace comes through Jesus Christ (John 1:17) and opens the door to God. When you have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ things happen which results in eternal changes.

  • The summer is here, and we have already endured some very hot days. Hopefully, we are all eating less, exercising more, and staying hydrated by drinking more water. Water, the nutrient our body needs the most, also helps prevent dehydration. The effects of dehydration can range from thirst to kidney failure and are usually silent but progressive. Therefore, we need to pay attention to the early signs of water loss because before we know it, we can become severely dehydrated.

  • Did you know that children today are in danger of having shorter life spans than their parents? And did you know that danger exists at least partially because of children’s unhealthy daily activities? We need to pay attention and redirect our children firmly toward daily physical activity and if possible, outdoor interaction with nature.
