    As I sit to write this, I’m still full of joy and wonder at how much fun Evergreen Outreach is! What a great day we had!  Old man winter may be threatening and cold, but he can never stop our spirit and love for each other!  

  • God's prescription for worship includes the church

    "Therefore brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and well pleasing to God. This is your spiritual worship." (Romans 12:1, Holman Christian Standard Bible)

  • In spiritual issues, the king is never in checkmate

    “Check Mate” is a famous painting of a chess game that,  to the casual observer, leaves its audience walking away from it with a feeling of defeat.

    Women's study now under way

    The women of Brownstown First Christian Church last week began a weekly study of the Bible book of Daniel. It will be held on Thursdays at 7 p.m.
    The study, titled “Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy,” was created by Beth Moore.
    The first part studies Daniel’s life, as he faced pressures and temptations similar to those that Christians encounter today.
    The second part explores the prophecies from the time of Daniel to the second coming of Jesus Christ.

    On Monday, we held “the meeting that never was.” The bitter cold weather put a nasty chill on the SoftFire brass, not to mention it totally cratered most everyone’s hopes for getting outside for any fun.
    So this report is just to let everyone know we still love and miss you all.

  • God gives us a second chance – don't run away!

    When we were children, we were told many stories from the Bible that we still remember today. We heard about Daniel in the lion’s den, Noah and the ark and, of course, each year we heard about the birth of baby Jesus.
    We may not have understood the full meaning of theses stories in the Bible, but we knew that there was something very special about them.

    Monday was full of magical surprises!  After last week's blizzard (a record, minus-25 wind-chill factor) we had beautiful warm weather (around 50 degrees and no wind). Delightful!
    However, there was a hole in the middle of the meeting room. Where were the people from FAYCO? We missed them!

  • We need more people to become 'mean' Christians

    Centuries ago, Aristotle wrote of a concept that has been referred to as the “Golden Mean.”
