Ministry Updates

My deepest desire is to be a Woman after God's Own Heart . . .  a godly woman.  One molded by and used of God.  And, without God's leading and intervention it won't happen.  That is my daily prayer. 

Elizabeth George (A Woman after God's Own Heart) says that praying to become a godly woman is a worthy prayer, but she also asks, "What does a godly woman do?  How does she act?  What is it about her that marks her out as a godly woman?" 

Those are the answers I need.   Elizabeth points to Titus 2:3-5 where you will find the character qualities of a godly woman.  She says the 10 most important priorities for women are: 

Wisdom

Godly Speech

Love of Husband

Love of Family

Love of Home

Purity

Personal Discipline

Goodness

Ministry to Others

Christ-like Behavior

If you share Elizabeth's and my prayer to become a godly woman, read Titus 2:3-5 and ask God to show you how to develop these qualities in your life.  It won't be an overnight change, but it will be well worth the end results! 

Blessings,

Sheri Cooper

Thanks, But No Thanks

I saw a quote today that said, "I finally got to exactly where I wanted to be ... so why won't all these growth experiences go away and leave me alone?"

Despite the humor in the question, we all feel the weight of those "growth experiences" we'd rather not encounter.  You know those situations where it feels much nicer to say, "Then I overcame that problem," than it does to express, "This is what I'm currently going through."

In a recent edition of UpWords®, Max Lucado says, "God can make something good out of your mess! The test ...

Beyond the Election

Election Day

Starting this week and through mid-October, there will be three U.S. presidential debates-the purpose of which to help voters understand where each candidate stands on the important issues. (By the way, according to a recent Pew Research survey it seems voters still feel the most significant topics they want discussed are terrorism and the economy.)  Ideally, by the end of these debates the American people should have a clearer understanding of who will make the best president. 

That said, these debates may not answer all our concerns before we cast that vote on November 8, so the greater question ...

Barry Meguiar’s Message at Times Square Church

 Barry Meguiar at Times Square Church

There's nothing like Times Square.

You share the sidewalk with hundreds of people from countless backgrounds, cities, and countries.  You experience food from dozens of nations
—all within walking distance of one other.  You observe national sites and famous buildings.  And in the heart of the hustle and bustle—right on Broadway and 51st Street—you see a beacon of God's grace.

Times Square Church, founded by David Wilkerson (also founder of Teen Challenge and author of The Cross and the Switchblade), and now shepherded by Pastor Carter Conlon, shares the street with Broadway theaters, coffee shops, hotels ...

The National Museum of African American History and Culture

It's truly amazing to see the ways in which the Bible has impacted every aspect of our culture.  In fact, it's impossible to find a corner of our world that's not yet been marked by this Book of books! This is what we learn about day-by-day on "The Book", as the feature highlights the various ways and places in which the Bible has had influence.

For the last several weeks, the press has been highlighting the Smithsonian opening its doors to The National Museum of African American History and Culture this past Saturday (September 24, 2016) in ...

Not Politically Correct - Biblically Correct

Pastor Jim Garlow has said that it will take Christians with a biblical worldview to preserve and defend our liberties.  In one of his features airing this week on The Garlow Perspective, he states . . .

"As Christians, we can't allow ourselves to be intimidated into doing nothing and saying nothing!  Cultural progressives won't be satisfied with just intimidating us into silence; they want total and full acceptance from us.

How will we ever be bold enough to share the Gospel with others or even have any credibility to share eternal truths about sin, and judgment if we're afraid ...

When You Don't Have Weapons For The War

sept2016

We all know the incredible stories of how--across the history of our country--the men and women in our armed forces have risked their lives in conflict and war to preserve peace and freedom. Now, imagine that into every one of those battles, they went ill-equipped, poorly armed, and inadequately prepared. 

As followers of Christ we have been called onto some very different battlefields, and we often times try and fight our way through the war without arming ourselves in prayer. 

"When we fail to pray, we become like an army that has laid down its weaponry." -- Pastor Carter Conlon

We ...
