Let's Talk Love

A sermon response by Rev. Clay Horton: In early August, my wife Errinne and I were vacationing in Santa Fe.  We were strolling down one of the beautiful city streets crowded with tourists when I noticed a black and white picture in the window of the Monroe Gallery of Photography.  The exhibit was titled, “The Long Road From Selma to Ferguson.”  I told Errinne that lunch had to wait. I grabbed her hand, and we made our way into what we would find to be a sobering gallery. ... Read More

Pastor Note: Soul Searching & What I Found

A Note from Rev. Doug Meyer: Over the past couple of weeks I have been doing some serious soul searching of how I came to know and believe certain things. The easy ones to identify were the  things I  learned from teachers, from parents, from my siblings and, fortunately, some I learned by experience.  But what about the things I learned by osmosis, that I gradually, unconsciously assimilated into my personal knowledge bank? There have been so many contributors to this... Read More

My First Invitation to Sing

There have been very few times where I was “invited” to join in singing.  It’s not something that ever happens to me.  There were two events on the summer youth choir tour that stood out to me.    The youth choir was visiting a boy’s ranch for at risk teenage kids outside of Lampe, MO.  The boys could stay at the ranch for 18 months and learn new life skills while under the watch of trained folks with a Christian emphasis.  After we had lunch together and the...

Share the Faith. Share a Smile.

Imagine you’ve grown up in the church, and your faith is intricately woven into the fabric of your life. But you live in an assisted living facility and don’t have the ability to travel to a church on Sundays. Or worse, you see the end of your life is creeping nearer, and you want to know about this God you’ve heard of but never met. And there’s no one around to ask.        Trietsch’s Traveling Church ministry serves both these folks when we takes our faith into... Read More
