  • Genesis 9:6: Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man. Killing another person is a sin, and the Bible makes that very clear.
    Psalms 51:5: For I was born a sinner. From the moment my mother conceived me. Some justify abortion by claiming that the unborn child is only a fetus, a physical body in the early stages of development.

  • We tell people that we can get ahead by our efforts, but here is the problem when it comes to salvation. We think we can be good enough, go to church enough, pray enough, give enough money to the church or read the Bible enough, then God will love us and save us.  But this is not the way God works.
    Our salvation is based on grace, and grace is the heart of our faith.  It is at the center of our relationship with God. Grace is when God gives us what we don’t deserve.  Who can begin to understand God’s amazing grace?

  • Cub Scout Pack 210 visited MAM Candy last Tuesday night as our first outing within the community. Rooney Gray treated the scouts with an informative and tasty lesson on pulled cream candy. Each scout was given his own candy to pull and then enjoy the delectable treat.

    The boys were able to see the chemical change from a light brown color of the candy as it began to be pulled, and then subtly change to a creamy white.
