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. The idea for it was first presented to the pastors of the Salem Ministerial Alliance back in January by Corey Harris, one of the 2nd grade teachers at Hawthorn School.  She thought it would…

MAY 2018 NEWSLETTER

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, I want to share something with you which was placed on my desk a while back.  It is called “The Teenager’s Prayer,” however, I believe that when you read it, you can easily find yourself in it.           Dear God: I find it rather difficult to talk to someone…

APRIL 2018 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: Two-word phrases…they punctuate our days as we hear them and use them all the time.  Consider just a few of them: Thank you.  You’re welcome.  Bless you.  Love you.  Let’s go.  Be nice.  Let’s eat.  How sweet!  Watch out! Well, recently I’ve been hearing one two-word phrase in my ongoing battle…

FROM PASTOR MIKE’S DESK: Dear brothers & sisters in Christ! So I’m sure you have all heard the saying when it comes to the month of March … “In like a lion, out like a lamb.”  We use this phrase, but what in the world does it really mean?  When trying to find out the…

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: It’s a term I had heard plenty of times before, especially since my wife has been working for a podiatrist for the past 25 years.  When she first started working there, she would tell me about all the people who were coming in with “heel pain.”  My initial reaction was always,…

Dear friends in Christ! One of the most common things which people do at the end of a year or at the beginning of a new year is look back at the events which have happened in our lives over that past year.  In doing this, it is easy to see the blessings which God…

DECEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: So did you hear it?  Did your ears happen to catch the sound of it when it happened on Sunday, November 5, around 11:00 am?  Of course, if you were in church at that time you couldn’t possibly have heard it…but then again, maybe you could have because it was pretty…

NOVEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, I have a confession to make.  I typically don’t do well with big changes.  My wife can attest to this.  As we were getting closer to my final Sunday in Nebraska, as we were packing up our stuff . . . I started to isolate myself and tried to…

OCTOBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: For the first time in my ministry I was at a complete loss for words.  We had just finished the worship service for Marilyn’s and my 25th anniversary of service here on September 10 – a service, I might add, that was full of surprises from beginning to end – and…
