  •  People can become confined to their home for many reasons: sickness, recovery from surgery, chronic illness, disability and even weather. With limited access to the outside, a person’s world can shrink considerably and create a disconnect from people and the community. To help a homebound friend or relative stay engaged in life, you can:

    • Plan to call or visit when you are not rushed for time.

    • Arrange a regular date to get together.

    • Encourage the person to express emotions and to listen.

  • Our brain is a creation of God. It is so complex that the wisest of men cannot tell us how it really functions. The Bible says that believers are in spiritual warfare, the carnal against the spiritual.

    "For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would." (Galatians 5:17) 

    Ephesians 4:27 says, “Neither give place to the devil.”

  • Christmas day is almost here. How will we react to Dec. 25? People are still people and today will probably react much the same as on the first Christmas long ago. Let us consider the responses of three individuals.

  •  Beginning Jan. 9, Community Winterhelp will provide assistance to help families struggling to keep their heat on during this economic downturn.

Last year, 1,093 families received $203,629 in heating assistance; this year the Board expects to receive requests to serve substantially more families.

  •  They presented gifts to him: gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11

    In the Christmas story we learn that:

    • God can use people you don’t know to bless you. The wise men weren’t devout Jews or committed Christians, but Persian stargazers. Don’t be selective – you’ll tie God’s hands. Open your heart and you’ll start seeing him reaching out to you through the most interesting people.
