Pastor Mike’s   Letter

We are still posting new, weekly sermons on, along with special music from the past.  And I’m told that this week we even have a brand- new selection by Hannah and Becky Fuller!   New recordings are usually uploaded by Friday evening and you can enjoy them whenever it’s convenient for you.  We post an easy-to-use link each week on our Facebook page.

Hang in there everyone!  Someday we’ll all be able to say that we survived a strange adventure, and that we did it in style!

You are blessed, and you are a blessing,

Pastor Mike

“GPS (God Provided Signals) to Heaven” directions

Make a Right onto Believeth Blvd.

Keep straight and go through the Green Light, which is Jesus Christ.

There, you must turn onto the Bridge of Faith, which is over troubled water.

When you get off the bridge, make a Right turn and Keep Straight.

You are on the King’s Highway – Heaven Bound.

Keep going for three miles:  One for the Father,

One for the Son, and one for the Holy Spirit.

Then exit off onto Grace Blvd.

From there, make a Right turn on Gospel Lane.

Keep Straight and then make another Right on Payer Road.

As you go on your way, Yield Not to the traffic on Temptation Ave.

Also, avoid SIN STREET because it is a DEAD END!

Pass up Envy Drive, and Hate Avenue.

Also, pass Hypocrisy Street, Gossip Lane, and Backbiting Blvd.

However, you have to go down Long-suffering Lane,

Persecution Blvd., and Trials and Tribulations Avenues.

But that’s all right, because VICTORY Street is straight ahead!

AMEN!!! ”

          Life is God’s gift to you

          The way you live it…… your gift to God.
