Mid-Week Devotional

In today’s Mid-Week Devotional Pastor Ron looks at our attitudes when we come back as being more important than when we return to the sanctuary in his message “But How We Come Back Is More Important Than When We Come Back”

Mid Week Devotional

In Psalm 133 the psalmist is telling us that it is pleasing to God, and to us, to be moving forward in unity.   But sometimes it is difficult for us to move forward.  As Ron explores the psalm in “How We Come Back Is More Important Than When We Come Back” he explains that even when we do not feel Him, God is with us in the Holy Spirit encouraging us to go forward.

June 17 Mid-Week Devotional

One thing is certain, at some point in the future we will all stand in the presence of God.  What will it be like?


Today in our Mid Week Devotional Steve Batstone quotes 1 Corinthians 2:9, as he explores the majesty and excitement we will feel when we stand before our Lord in “I Can Only Imagine”.


Photo:   112 feet tall with 176 stained glass windows telling biblical stories and filling the nave with mystical light the Chartres Cathedral’s Gothic architecture was designed to demonstrate the power and majesty and glory of God.  Consecrated in 1260 this nearly 800 year old cathedral, to the people who built it, is surely a place where God could live.  The photo is taken from the entrance/nave looking toward the apse, cloister, Upper Ambulatory and seven chapels.  The statue in the apse is Our Lady of Chartres.

Mid Week / Hump Day Devotional

Elder Rod Thompson presents our Mid Week  / Hump Day Devotional Rediscovering The Basics of Our God Connection at


as Rod explores how we can use this extra time we suddenly find on our hands.  Perhaps we could use this time to get closer to God and rediscover all of the gifts and support he is giving us, even when we do not realize it.

Mid Week Reflection

It has been an incredibly difficult week.  Faced with a worldwide pandemic from Coronavirus and COVID-19, subsequent shelter-in-place requirements, business closings followed by unparalleled unemployment we now have marching in the streets.


Pastor Ron approaches these subjects from a Biblical perspective in his midweek reflection of current events “A Short Reflection on What the Bible Says About Injustice-Protest, Anger, Government and Resisting Evil”
