JULY/AUGUST 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: In case you haven’t heard, the Meyer household has a new addition to their family.  Believe it or not, it’s a dog.  Her name is Dixie and she is a full-blooded beagle. Though Marilyn and I said we would never have a dog again, I have to confess that as I’ve…

JUNE 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MIKE’S DESK: Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ!             As I sit here at my dining room table writing this, the kids are helping Jessica make banana bread. I have to admit, watching them interact and work together it is quite comical. Maybe it is because they are trying to make three loaves…

MAY 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: I can remember it as if it happened yesterday.  After months of preparation, months of practice, and months of anticipation laced with a bit of anxiety, it finally arrived.  And what exactly was “it”?  “It” was the first time I ever preached.  It happened during my second year of college when…

APRIL 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MIKE’S DESK: Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,       When something keeps coming up over and over again, it almost seems like that it is God’s way of telling to you to pay attention.

MARCH 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: A few evenings ago I did something that I don’t do very often.  I went grocery shopping with Marilyn at Wal-Mart.  You might find this hard to believe, but I’ve always enjoyed grocery shopping, probably because I used to work in a grocery store back when I was in high school. …

FEBRUARY 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MIKE’S DESK: Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ!        As we enter the month of February, the one thing which tends to stand out is not whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow, nor is it President’s Day … instead, the thing which typically stands out is Valentine’s Day. Ever since the…

JANUARY 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: I’m writing this article the day after President George H. W. Bush’s funeral.  I unfortunately did not get to see the whole thing because I had a Ministerial Alliance meeting at that time, but I did get to see President George W. Bush’s eulogy of his father which at times brought…

NOVEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: It hangs on the wall just to the right as you enter the room and just to the left as you leave.  It’s very shiny and I suspect it is polished regularly.  It has a white rope hanging from it and a plaque above it that reads: Life is not measured…
