Pastor's Blog

Summer is an exciting and busy time of the year. It is easy to become entangled with the things of this life and neglect the more important spiritual responsibilities. Hebrews 12: 1 reminds us to "lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us." Obviously, a weight is anything that would hinder our spiritual progress. Let me encourage you to take a few minutes to have a spiritual checkup to see if there are any excess weights you might need to get rid of so you can be your spiritual best for the Lord.
