Dear Church family, We have talked a little bit about Joseph’s role in the Christmas story and he has been on my mind a fair amount lately so here are some further thoughts about the man we often put at the back of the stable. At the end of the e-votional I have included a […]

Dear Church family, The latest update from Phil, Lucy and Shirley is that all have made it to Thiruvananthapuram, India, safely (say that three times fast!). They have already participated in a retreat along with students from the Bible College our church supports. Beginning Monday, all three of them will be teaching classes at the […]
