...Then It Was Easter
Friday and Saturday's stormy weather gave way to a cool Easter Sunday morning.  The temperature was 42°.  Yet many churches held their Sunrise Service outdoors.  The oldest of Lincolnton's Sunrise Services was celebrated indoors at St. Luke's Episcopal Church.

Jesus Wants You Back
At Easter many Christians who have fallen away from the Lord wonder if they still have a place in His kingdom. Some of us have gotten so caught up with our jobs, our children, collecting material things, and other worldly pursuits that our relationship with the Lord is a pretty low priority in our life.

How Hard Can It Be?
Last Saturday started out like every other Saturday during the springtime of the year. I cut the grass, cleaned up the garage, and completed any unfinished tasks that had been lingering around the house. I had finished all my regular responsibilities when my wife told me that the bathroom sink was clogged.

Thoughts On Easter & Missions
Church attendance peaks at Easter. It is most certainly an appropriate day to remember and reflect on the crucifixion and resurrection, but are we just 'going through the motions'?

Let's Have Lunch
For the past six weeks about 150 of us in the local Body of Christ have gathered at noon at First United Methodist Church for a Lent luncheon worship series. People from many area churches come together for this annual event and it is like a homecoming of sorts where old friends connect with hugs and new friends are made outside of our own church family.

Run Home
When my children were living at home, we would take trips on a regular basis to visit my wife’s family who lived in Georgia.
