"A Place Where Christians Meet"

What About Subtraction?

We are very careful not to add to what God has established when it comes to His word and His church. We make it a practice not to go beyond what is written. However, do we concentrate so much on how wrong it is to supplement God’s word with our own works that we fail […]

Calling All Teachers

When it is time to get ready for school to start once again, we are so focused on the students that we often forget about the teachers.  We have a few here at our congregation who teach as a profession, whether it be at a public school, or within the home.  After volunteering in a […]

Back to School Scriptures

1 Timothy 4:12 (NASB) 12 Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. Isaiah 48:17 (NASB) 17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, Who […]

Back to School

It’s that time of year again, “Back to School!  Many dread it, while some actually look forward to it; they say that right before they go back, anyways.  Ask the same people a few weeks into it if they still feel the same, and many of their answers may have changed.  The dawn of a […]

Reaching the Lost

As Christians, we are called to be Holy.  Being Holy means we are to be set apart.  We are different.  This behavior is more than just how we act in public, it is an overflow of what resides in our hearts (Luke 6:45).  Difficult situations that we encounter are met with the hope and knowledge […]

Where Was I?

Many of us are familiar with the book of Job. We try to empathize with the suffering that he endured. Job lost everything. His wealth was taken from him. His children were all killed. Not to mention, his health was severely affected. However, I invite you to skip ahead toward the end of the book […]

Remember Who You Are

“Remember who you are,” is what a preacher friend of mine told me he would say to his kids when they were old enough to go out on their own.  This is good advice, as I will one day, God willing, say the same to my own daughter when she is old enough to be […]

Let the children come to me

Just the other day, I was reading to my 3-year-old daughter about Jesus blessing the little children.  It was meant to be a short, but heart-felt devotional.  I wanted her to know that even though she is just a little girl that she can go to the Lord in prayer, at any time, no matter […]

Think Locally

“It’s a small world,” is what we often say after we meet someone, and they happen to know the same people who we know somewhere else.  We might even say this when bumping into someone we know while we are far away from home.  Is it really a small world?  If we were to take […]

A Hospital for Sinners

A Hospital for Sinners Just this week, brother David Zuniga sent out an email thanking the church for the support given to him in the form of prayers, cards, and texts while in San Angelo the past few months.  “I no longer see the church as a hotel for saints, but as a hospital for […]
