  • Football season 2018

    James Abeare|Sep 6, 2018

    It is finally here! Football season in the States. I have watched the Lions’ preseason, the first games for both Michigan and Michigan State and half of the Canadian Football League season and what I have learned in this young season is; both Michigan and Michigan State needs work, the Lions aren’t really ready for the season to start and the Calgary Stampeders are one of the best teams in pro football. Let’s start with Michigan first. The team was not ready for Notre Dame. They could... Full story

  • Train Them Up!

    Pastor Overall|Sep 6, 2018

    The Lord Jesus instructed Christian parents to raise their children to reverence him and live according to his word. Ephesians 6: 4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. However, Jesus keeps telling me that the devil is actually using the very parents he gave to raise them to reverence him and live according to his word to take a casual attitude toward the things of God just like they do. That is totally the opposite of the... Full story
