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…

SEPTEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: Glioblastoma…it’s a word that up until recently I was completely unfamiliar with.  Had somebody asked me what a glioblastoma was, my best guess would have been that it sounds like a weapon straight out of a Star Wars movie.  But on July 23 I found out what it is.  It’s the…

JULY/AUGUST 2018 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MIKE’S DESK: Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, Not that long ago, Pastor Meyer went through the foot pain of planters facetious.  I was right there alongside a bunch of other people giving him a hard time about getting old and falling apart.  Well … the tables have now turned.  I’m not exactly…

JUNE 2018 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: You may not be aware of this, but your two pastors have taken on a new responsibility.

MAY 2018 NEWSLETTER
