Church Briefs

First Baptist Church

I don’t really enjoy the frigid temperatures we have experienced this winter, but there is one thing nice about them. On some of the coldest nights, the sky seems to be crystal clear. You can see the stars and moon unlike many other nights and they create quite a scene to look at. The scene can be a paradox, though. The stars appear to be so close to us, yet are so far away.

Some people look at God like the evening sky. They like to “look” at Him in their mind’s eye where He appears to be close, yet He seems so far away. The Scripture tells us He is not far from each one of us, though. Would you like to draw near Him and know Him better? Come to First Baptist Church this Sunday at 9:30 a.m. when we will be talking about how to draw near to God. We would love to see you.

Main Street Christian Church

Step and Walk: Main Street Christian Church is open on Monday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for Step and Walk exercise. A walking and stepping route is laid out through the three floors of the educational building. The route is also marked with arrows. Persons may walk as few or as many routes as they desire.

A New Year Means a New Checkbook

If we’re going to live by God’s Word, we’ve got to live by the whole Book. That means, when it comes to finances, we need to open up our checkbook and our Bible and lay them side by side and make sure that what we’re doing in our finances is consistent with someone who is fully committed to living all out for Jesus.
