Life Between Mountaintops

Perhaps one of the most beautiful sights in the world is when you find yourself standing on the mountaintop looking out over the region all around. The heights give us a fresh perspective of the lay of the land. There is a comfort to being on top of it all. Even some of the earliest disciples felt this way with Jesus once. In fact, one wanted to simply stay up there. Yet, Jesus led them back down into the valleys of the world where life and ministry happen. How do the mountaintops move us into the valleys even today?

Rev. Elbert Dulworth

Vesper Service Thursday

Thursday at 7 p.m. on Facebook

Unwind, relax, reflect, and connect with God.

Be an Encourager

Everyone has problems, some more than others. But have you noticed how some people who deal with big problems are the most encouraging people there are? What’s their secret? How does God help make that happen? Tune in to consider how you can be more of an encourager in the lives of others.
