Letters from Pastor Chuck

Preach Jesus

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

I love that Stephen doesn't even respond to the charge against him.  Instead of responding, he preaches Jesus.  Stephen was the "little guy".  He comes out of nowhere. He was a deacon...a helper.  God uses the weak things to shame the strong and the foolish things to shame...

Reachmen, Reachettes and Little Reachers,  I CAN’T WAIT!! GET HERE EARLY AND DON’T MISS EVEN ONE SECOND OF WORSHIP!  Last Sunday, I began unpacking “the plan for the coming year” at Reach Church, but I ran out of time and I wasn’t able to share...

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Whatever it is...don’t let it steal your joy.  Whatever it is...don’t let it discourage you to the point of giving up.  Whatever it is...don’t find your identity and worth in it because you won’t find it there. At least not in a lasting way.  You...

Nothing But Jesus at VBS

Summer of 1982. Little league. Pool parties. Fourth of July fireworks. And...Vacation Bible School.  VBS must have started at 6 in the morning and ended at 7 at night. My Uncle Ted, my Dad’s brother, dressed up as a gorilla. There was also a home video of a space shuttle...
