• Time for God and for oneself is key to living a healthy life in Christ. But we forget that time off is just as important as getting things done. Rev. Lee reminds us that we all need rest.

  • The state is reopening officially, and there are so many questions. Lee’s comments from the June 12th Presbytery Assembly address them.

  • The followers of Jesus had lost their beloved leader, but they gathered to worship “on the first day of the week” as was their custom.  While together, a violent wind blew into the midst of them. And that is when things really started to change.

A Forward-Thinking Outlook On

Living A Life In Christ

The church isn't a building or an institution. It is the people of the congregations that are the church, and the church must spread The Gospel as far as possible.

The children of God need to be cared for, no matter their lot in life. As servants of Christ, we are called to shelter them, nurture them, and provide spiritual fellowship to them.

We bring all members of the church into the sacred space of worship, allowing the Holy Spirit to move fully through the body of Christ.

The Divine Truth is available for all, but it is through interaction with it, discussion about it, and practical application of it that our lives are made whole through God.

Followers of Christ are called to serve their neighbors. Through "radical neighboring" we find the ways that the body of Christ around us is being underserved and offer what we can.

Christ called us to prepare the Kingdom of Heaven. God calls us to demonstrate what that looks like to the world through our actions.
