    Judith Anderson-Bauer|Apr 7, 2023

    For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

    Pine Knot News|Apr 10, 2020

    People are so worried about this virus. But in reality when God decides it’s your time to go, we will go one way or another. Heaven or hell. For all eternity. We are not exempt. Just enjoy what you have. In the Bible, it’s God’s commandment to love one another. As he first loved us. He died for us. I would like to challenge people to give with all your heart. Maybe this community can pull itself through to continue on despite all these trials and tribulations. I notice a change in the commu... Full story
