"A Place Where Christians Meet"

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 […]

A Conditional Covenant

The word, covenant, is not one we often use in a sentence.  It is understood that there was an old covenant, and we now live under a new covenant.  Jesus Christ, the Messiah, fulfilled the old covenant by bringing us a new and better one.  When we hear the word, promise, it speaks to us […]

Growing Older

By the time we get to chapter 21 in the gospel of John, Jesus has already been crucified as well as resurrected from the dead.  Jesus reveals himself again after Peter decides to go fishing and a few other disciples go with him.  After Jesus calls out to them to cast their net out on […]

Like a Little Child

In the same passage of scripture that was referenced in the previous article of this bulletin, there was the command of Jesus to allow the children to come to Him.  However, there was also a warning.  Mark 10:15 Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will […]

New Beginnings – A New Creature

The word creature is derived from the word creation. When we put on Christ in baptism, we are considered a new creation. The apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.” The ultimate […]

New Beginnings – A New Schedule

Busy, busy, busy! Did you know that there is a calendar on that smart phone of yours? Use it. We all have different styles of staying organized. Some of us may prefer to use a planner that we write in. Finding balance and being prepared helps reduce stress and anxiety tremendously. Above all else, this […]

New Beginnings – New Friends

Some of us have always lived in the same city, attended the same schools, surrounded by the same people. Others may have had to move around a great deal, and have attended a variety of different schools. Did we choose our friends, or did we let them choose us? It is easy to become apart […]

New Beginnings

Commercials advertising sales on school supplies are already in full swing. As we stroll through the aisles of Wal-Mart, or Target, we see and endless ocean of backpacks, pencils, erasers, folders, etc. The list goes on and on. With Lubbock being a college town, we also see buggies (aka: shopping carts) filled with inexpensive furniture […]
