Some time ago a friend was trying to show me something in the sky.  They seemed to be pointing in one direction and facing in a different direction – and I couldn’t figure out what they were pointing at.  I finally said, “I can’t tell the direction you are facing!”

Summer Camp

I just returned from Camp Joy in Whitewater, WI.  Today we ended teen summer camp...what a great week!  Evangelist Tom Farrell and Pastor Ben Farrell preached two to three times a day among all the crazy skits, activities, and competitions.  Some challenges came throughout the week...but MANY ("many" is understated) decisions for the Lord were made before week's end.  God is good -- all the time!

Take a moment to check out some pictures and videos from the week!

We all have habits that we stick pretty close to – right?   The pew we always sit in at church... The food we always have for a certain holiday...The routine we follow to get ready for work everyday.…and the list goes on!  The truth is -- every believer truly wants
