OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE JESUS-FOLLOWERS WHO
LOVE GOD, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, AND SERVE THE WORLD

Pastor's Thoughts (October 24th)    


    “Therefore, God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11

    Names are important. God changed peoples’ names in the Bible.  Abram became Abraham, Sarai became Sarah, and Saul became Saul.  Names have meaning. 


    In 1995 I took a class called Displaced Homemakers at a Junior college near where I lived. I found myself single with five children and looking for a new career to support my family. One of my assignments was to write a poem. We are selling a second home we have, and I found a poem I had written for an assignment for the class.
“My Names”


There are long names, short names, happy names, sad names.
There are good names, bad names, but what about my name?
I have many names.
I am called “Mom” now mostly.
I once was called “Sweetie”.
Since that stopped entirely does that mean I’m not sweet now.
Then there are the ugly names. 
Those names that are so hard to forget.
Those names that hurt to the soul, but now I hear no more.
I believe in who I am, more now, than I did a month ago.
I give praise to the Name above all names for giving me faith in my name again.


    I am thankful for Jesus who helped through that difficult time 28 years ago and who continues to help me every day.  There is power in the name of Jesus. Do you know Him in the power of His Name?


Blessings, 
Pastor Stephanie
