Do Something!

Last Sunday, September 11, 2016, our church shared an awesome time together in worship and praise remembering 9/11.

Recently we were honored to bring on board a new Senior Pastor, Joseph Campbell, to Morningside Church. After months of prayer God had answered our prayers for a Spirit-filled man of God with sincere compassion for the people.

Pastor Joe titled his message, “Lest We Forget.” After he gave the honor and remembrance our country deserved, he then proceeded to address the congregation and turned his message to each one of us. Continue reading

God’s Timing

I am starting with a special scripture from Isaiah 40:31 which says, “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

God works His timing for those He loves and those who love Him; so at times He appears to be silent. However, God promises to answer our prayers. Continue reading

Love is the Key (Pt. 2)

Let’s continue with our search for true love.

Our Heavenly Father loved so intensely that He had to give His very best, His only Son.  As the Lord’s love flows through us and out to others we will be giving our best. And yes, sometimes, it will be sacrificially. Continue reading

Love is the Key (Pt. 1)

Sharon Couchman

“Just love.”  “All we need is love.”  How often we have heard these phrases, but, how do we do this?  Is it natural human love that accomplishes this, or is it God’s love?  How do you get that love?  How do you truly display God’s love?

I hope that everyone who reads this has experienced true love, the love that comes only from our Lord.  But, if not, let’s seek together how to obtain this love.

Scripture tells us that “God is love.”  Continue reading

Fight the Good Fight of Faith

Clete Snellenberger

In my line of ministry, as well as pastoring, I minister in the Prayer Center on the telephone. I really enjoy this ministry outreach.

One thing I have observed is the amount of people who are in “spiritual warfare”.

Ephesians 6:12 – “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” KJV
