Pastor’s Corner

Jim Mann A couple became more and more forgetful, so they began writing themselves notes to help remember. As the husband got up one day to go to the kitchen, his wife asked him to scoop a bowl of ice cream for her. “You may want to write it down,” she said. “Nonsense, I’ll remember.”…

Fellowship at the Ranch

In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, the Apostle Paul admonishes us to “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.
