Notes from the Pastor


Without eating daily, the body withers and dies.  The same is true of the soul!  Being in the Word of God is an important part of maintaining spiritual health and wellness.  More than that, being in God’s Word is an important aspect of Christian life together.  It is through the study of the Scriptures, together in the mutual support of one another, that the Holy Spirit builds us up in faith.  Come to Bible Study! 

Think of it this way:  there are about 525,600 minutes in the year.  A faithful churchgoer who never misses a Sunday will hear approximately 50 sermons, each about 10 minutes long.  That adds up to just 500 minutes in the year – a mere 0.09 percent!  That is not even one-tenth of one single percent.  That is not nearly enough.  "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge because thou hast rejected knowledge."  - Hosea 4:6
