Fellowship at the Ranch

Pastor Ed Jones Why was God so willing to reveal Himself in Bible times but seems hidden and silent today? One reason God may seem hidden today is the simple fact of willful, unrepentant sin. “Then they will cry out to the LORD, but He will not answer them. At that time, He will hide…

Fellowship at the Ranch

Pastor Ed Jones How many remember Mad magazine’s poster boy, Alfred E. Neuman and his iconic motto, “What, me worry?” Well, with all the worry of late, I decided to take a look at what scripture says about it. The Bible clearly teaches that Christians are not to worry. In Philippians 4:6, we are commanded, “Do…

Fellowship at the Ranch

The Lord gave me a love for linguistics. I often spend quite a bit of time determining the root and meaning of Biblical words and phrases. That love compelled me to look at the word April! Being confident about the origin of a word that’s been around since before 700 B.C. is not all that…

Fellowship at the Ranch

In the March 2, 2015, edition of The Paris Review, Sadie Stein remarked on March coming “In like a lion, and out like a lamb.” She says, (it) always seemed a straightforward enough proverb, when March starts, it’s still winter, and by the end of the month spring has begun. True, in many climates the…

Fellowship at the Ranch

Pastor Ed Jones I like February. It’s a time when I revel in resolutions kept or, more likely, mourn those that didn’t last long. It is the shortest month, yet it brings the promise of glorious spring. The Roman month Februarius was named after the Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual…

Fellowship at the Ranch Likes to Eat!

Dennis Dotson No surprise! How do you get 70 people into one home in Robson Ranch? Answer: potluck dinner! The Fellowship at the Ranch Church held our Christmas potluck dinner after Sunday Service, Dec. 15. God was kind to us and provided excellent weather. Many of us brought hungry appetites. Experiencing the warmth of a…

Fellowship at the Ranch

Edwin Jones, Pastor If I were to ask you what your favorite song was from twenty years ago, I wonder how many of you would think of a group or tune from the 1980s. I was recently asked that question from a friend, and my mind went back to ABBA, the Bee Gees, and the…

And the Chili Cook-off  winner is…

Pastor Ed Jones, cook-off winners Carolyn and Wayne Detjen, and Cynthia Drury

Cynthia Drury Saturday, Nov. 9, Fellowship At The Ranch (FATR) hosted a Chili Cook-off at the WildHorse Grill on the patio. The 60+ degree weather was perfect for sampling chili. Over a hundred RR residents and friends attended the event. The cook-off began with welcome and prayer by FATR Pastor Ed Jones. As the participants…

Fellowship at the Ranch

Ed Jones I’m often told that one doesn’t need to attend church to be a Christian. While I agree that you don’t need to go to church to be a Christian, there is some clarification necessary. Let’s define what it means to be a Christian by looking at a person who Jesus said was a Christian,…
