This is my content. I can have paragraphs. My paragraphs can have italic and bold text (or even italic bold text). I can even underline and color things!

This is some information. I changed my mind; this is the new information.

  • I can have lists
  • These lists can have bullets or numbers
  • These lists are fancy!

This is a quote that I’m borrowing from a very awesome individual.

A Story from the Hope Chest

A Story From the Hope Chest
By Sharon Faries

Have you ever had a stranger share their joy with you?  Or two strangers?  When the Hope Chest reopened last Tuesday, April 3 after being closed for two weeks, that is what happened.  Quite often we get excited when a man will find a suit, shirt, and tie and tell us that he has just found his new Sunday clothes; or a lady finds a new Sunday church dress, but this day was different.

Two ladies were standing in line waiting to be checked out.  They could hardly wait to get to the head of the line to tell us their story of joy.  They told us that they were now best friends because of God and the Hope Chest.  We wondered, “How does the Hope Chest get credit for that?”  They shared that they were strangers to one another last fall when they happened to visit the Hope Chest at the same hour one day.  They met there and they left realizing that they had found a new best friend.  The ladies spoke of sharing fun and hardships with one another over the following days.  They mentioned that they often prayed for one another and would frequently pray over the phone for one another.  We were overjoyed as these new best friends stood there smiling and hugging each other and saying thank you to us for providing more than new clothing and shoes.  They were given a friendship full of God’s joy.


I shared with them a saying that we say to one another almost every Sunday morning: “God is good … all the time; and all the time … God is good.”  These ladies loved that and they walked out repeating the words.

I wonder what these ladies are doing today?  My guess is that they are sharing their blessings from God and praying with one another for us.

Believe, Speak, Do!

Posted by on April 11, 2012 under Front Page Announcements, Front Page Posts, Sermons

Have you ever heard any of these expressions?

“If you are going to talk the talk, then walk the walk!”

“Say what you mean and mean what you say!”

“Practice what you preach!”

“Actions speak louder than words!”

Of course you have heard these.  We recognize that a consistency among the ideas we cherish, the things we say, and the way we act is important.  We recognize this importance in virtues such as integrity, honesty, conviction, transparency.  Our maturity as followers of Jesus Christ increases when we notice the vital relationship of believing, speaking, and doing.

For three weeks in April, we will use 2 Corinthians 4:13-18 as our guide and explore how our belief in Christ’s teachings drives our words and actions.
