The Church is in Good Hands


The Church is in Good Hands!

“On this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” Matthew 16:18

We need to pray every day for Christians who are persecuted for their faith. Watching the news, reading the paper, and surfing the net one can easily be gripped by images from the Middle East. Constant stories around the world about what people are doing to followers of Jesus Christ.

Sick of Hearing About Small Groups?

Hebrews 10:24-25

24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.


Spring of the Soul

Spring has finally started to emerge.  It certainly was a long cold winter, with lots of snow this year.  One of the things about living in upstate ny, you definitely get to experience all of the seasons.  Of all the changes I think we long for Spring the most.  Why?  It follows a long period of gray skies, dark evenings, bitter cold days, dead trees and plant life and a sense of dormancy and gloom.  But, ahhh… spring has sprung.  With it comes a promise of new life, blue skies, plenty of warmth and sunshine, the trees and flowers begin to come back to life, and we gain a sense of hope, well being and promise of good days ahead.  Well Life often mimics the natural world.  All too often we struggle with the same elements of dormancy and gloom in our souls. However, we can experience a Spring of the Soul.  The scripture says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun!”  Just like spring after a long cold winter, new life emerges.  So as we celebrate this new season, let us not forget the new season Jesus made available for our souls.  –Pastor Shawn Harnish

The Day Death Died

The Day Death Died.
I am sure the religious enemies of Jesus and even the Devil himself were quite satisfied with their work on Good Friday.  The had done it.  


An Anchor to my Soul

Does your soul need an anchor?  Have you ever thought about it?  Probably not when life is going well, but when the storms of life hit then….
