Let me remind you of one of my favorite verses - "I Samuel 12:24 Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you." Many times we allow our anxieties to divert our confidence in what God is doing. Remember God's promises - God never fails.

Though the lockdown for the Coronavirus has been difficult, there have been some rays of joyous sunshine. Sandy & Jaime are a young couple in our church who are newly saved.

It is hard to believe another year has passed. Time seems to go faster the older we get. I am thankful that 2020 is in the past now. Although the witnessing was limited that last few months, there are always some who still want Christ as Saviour and we've led them to Him We are looking forward to having a great year reaching those we can for our Lord.

The Lord our God is still doing whatsoever He pleases in Heaven and in earth. He is in control and can accomplish whatsoever He pleases, even in the "deep" places. During the last few months, I have been in "deep" over my head with work and problem solving of all sorts. Life has overwhelmed me with blessings and challenges on a daily basis. It is in these blessings, problems, and minstry that we have seen God do as He pleases in both our lives and ministry. To continue reading the update from Rodney Ruppel, please click the link below.

After spending 8 weeks preaching online, it's been a huge blessing being back in the pulpit! Our folks have been very faithful in attendance and in their giving. I was truly blessed by our church during the 8 weeks we couldn't meet. They faithfully joined the online services and they faithfully stopped by the buidling to give their tithes and offerings.

2020 has been different and memorable. We've all thought about it, commented on it, and prayed about it. Many more adjectives and verbs could be substituted for the ones just used. (some might say difficult and miserable.) Bushfires, Covid-19, and the Presidential elecion were some of the major headlines. For sure the trying year that 2020 has been is about to be put behind us. I encourage you to count your blessing from 2020, and to trust the Lord for the New Year in spite of the uncertainties ahead. To continue reading the update from Jon Hall, please click the link [...]

During the Christmas season we often think of the book of Isaiah and the many prophecies that are in this great book. Jehovah God chose the nation of Israel to be His people through which the Promised Messiah would come. Isaiah chapters 38-55 are considered the servant songs, and the servant of the Father Himself would be Jesus who was sent by the Father to save His people from their sins. Thankfully, it is far more than just Jacob and the nation of Israel that would be saved from their sins; it allows the Gentiles as well to receive His salvation. [...]
