God help us through this valley,

We walk in the middle of two mountains. On one side are the dual peaks of faith and confidence. We know you are our rock and our salvation. You save and you will keep us safe. Yet, for some of us, it is hard not to leap from the tower and hope you will catch us. It is possible to trust you so much that we become foolhardy. You gave us reason for a reason. On there is a large mountain on the other side, however, those are the dual peaks of fear and preparation. It's easy to be so afraid we lose all our senses, and out of fear, make self-fulfilling prophecies that manifest our worst nightmares. Yet it is also healthy for a good dose of fear to help us prepare for what is to come. So here we are, hoping to be in the middle, but desiring to climb out of the valley on one side or the other. It's hardest being in the valley because we cannot see to either side. Yet you are the Christ who walked the valley of death, who trod upon the waters. You are the Christ who lived his life in the valley between human and divine. Show us how to live in the middle during this time O' Lord. You are the Christ and we call to you now.

Attending worship service on Sunday morning gets my week started out great and with a purpose. I take great joy in service to the members of my church being a deacon. It is an honor to partake of the Lord's Supper.The format of the worship service is similar to the way it was when I was a boy growing up in this church. My parents were faithful members here and I can touch their memories each Sunday. Sometime certain hymns bring back wonderful memories of my parents, Red & Jeane Williams. I also enjoy and take comfort from fellowship with my church family and friends. We are so fortunate to have Rev. Jordan Byrd. He brings insight and clarity to the scriptures in a unique way. I always gain knowledge from his messages and also practicable ways to apply God's Word into everyday life experiences.
