The Response

Posted by Pastor Chuck L. Betters on

One of the questions I ask myself when I prepare a sermon is this: "what do I hope will happen as a result of people listening to this sermon?"  That may sound like a question with an obvious answer--but the answer isn't so obvious. Some pastors would say that they would hope their...

Everyone Needs A Friend

In Our Midst

Posted by Pastor Chuck L. Betters on

God is doing something in our midst. Living to Reach All People with Nothing But Jesus, or wonderfully abbreviated, Nothing But Jesus, is beginning to spread like wild fire among both those who have been here for years and those who are brand new to the church. It is awesome...
