Church Family, would you join me in prayer this summer?  There are a few things happening and in the works that we would love to have you join with us in prayer over.

Over the next few months, we want to put together a worship ministry team that has a heart to plan and execute dynamic worship experiences for our church body.  When planning within the worship arts (really the arts of any kind), it is so beneficial to have a range of input.  There are also so many moving parts leading to any given...

Change is not easy.  Can I get an amen to that?  As I am climbing the age ladder to halfway to 90, I am realizing the older you get the harder it is to adapt to change.  That doesn’t give us an excuse to resist change because some change is good.  On the other side though, we should never change just for the sake of change.

I cannot even imagine what the Christians went through in the first century who were raised in Judaism.  Their whole life was spent seeing God a certain way and...

Intercessory Prayer for April:

During the month of April, the Center Christian Church family is being asked to pray for those afflicted with anxiety, depression, and/or addiction.

"And pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests."  (Ephesians 6:18a)

I want to say thank you.  Thank you for being a church that realizes the importance of sabbath.  I was able to get away last week with my family to Tennessee.  Yes, it was homecoming for Johnson; yes, our yearly shopping trip for clothes, and yes, there was a trip to the Nascar Speed Park for go-carts.  But through all the fun, the get-away had a bigger importance.

REST—Hebrews 4.  Darryl just spoke about this and it was a nice send off to my trip.  The importance here is to know t...

If you didn’t know, my path for full-time ministry was “unconventional” to say the least.  After Bible College and until I entered full-time ministry 10 years ago, I always did weekend ministry.  My full-time job during those 12 years of weekend ministry was social work.

The social work that I did was specific to child abuse and neglect prevention at first and then the majority of those years was served in a supervisory level on the intervention side of child welfare.  I doubt my heart and m...

“Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb.  It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance.  ‘Take away the stone,’ he said.  ‘But, Lord,’ said Martha, the sister of the dead man, ‘by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.’  Then Jesus said, ‘Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?’  So they took away the stone.  Then Jesus looked up and said, ‘Father, I thank you that you have heard me.  I knew that you always hear me, but I...

My last article was about the need and responsibility we have to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being persecuted throughout the world.  Reports show that some 215 million Christians experience high, very high, or extreme persecution.

The need to pray is real.  The reason for prayer is severe.  The time to pray is now.  But “how to pray” is a question upon many hearts who are willing.

The following comes from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and is extre...

For 2018, the leadership at Center would like to give a call to prayer!  Scripture is clear that we are to be people of prayer.  That involves each of us individually, as well as corporately.    At the beginning of the month we will invite you all to join us in intercessory prayer for a specific area on your own throughout the month and then we will join together for intercessory prayer on the 4th Sunday.  Our prayer concerns this month are the unbelieving and lost.  Joi...
