  • Learn to live a life that is true

     The hymn says, “Living for Jesus, a life that is true, striving to please Him in all that I do ….” 

    Titus 2:11-15 gives three suggestions that would help us in our living for Jesus. 

    First, we are told to turn from godless living. Ungodliness refers to the immoral, wicked, and evil. It has to do with that which has no place for God and for the things of God. We are told to love the things of God and to walk in His ways while turning our backs on ungodliness. 

  • Maya Angelou: A voice not quieted by death

    It was another poet who said, “All I have is a voice.” But it was Maya Angelou, poet, author and so much more, who gave full-throated life to that idea in 86 years that almost defy description.

  • 'A Remarkable Church Called Nolynn' presented Sunday

  • Historic Buffalo hotel shares energy with 'ghost hunter'

    When Emma Whitlock was a student at the old Buffalo Elementary School, she rode the bus past a big, deserted house every day. One day, she saw something odd in one of the windows – a woman in white.
