  • The 40 gallon challenge

    Across the southern United States individuals are being encouraged to take the “40 Gallon Challenge.” This is a regional campaign that challenges residents to conserve at least 40 gallons of water per day.

  • He has risen so that you may have life

    Christ is risen. Christians throughout the world joined together Easter Sunday and every Sunday to worship a risen Lord.  Because of His death, burial and resurrection, we can have life and have it to the full (John 10:10).
    If Jesus had remained in the grave, there would have been no resurrection from the dead and Christians would have no hope. Our faith would be useless. But Christ was raised from the dead and we are able to sing, “He arose!  He arose!  Hallelujah Christ arose!”
