Trusting in the Lord

Jesus said, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33). Unfortunately, many people seem to transpose this verse as they first seek worldly things with the hope that God’s blessings will still be there. Are you more focused on your lifestyle, where you live, what you drive, or what you wear than with seeking God?

Christmastide: From Here to Epiphany

After months of planning and anticipation, Christmas appears to be over all too quickly. On December 26, retailers tell us we are in the after-Christmas season of returns, exchanges, and more sales. The church calendar however, tells us it is still Christmas. The twelve days of Christmas - called Christmastide are the days after Christmas leading to Epiphany on January 6. During this season, we continue to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Read more of Pastor Curtis' Reflection here.
