We will not forget to pray for you now. And a get-well-soon to Everett Van Reken. Hearty congratulations to Steve Pederson and the congregation of Zion Church in Sheboygan, WI who left the United Church of Christ and voted overwhelmingly to join the Evangelical Covenant Church. And a high five to Don Lough, Jr. who has just been named the new Director of Word of Life in Schroon Lake, NY.

And a day-early salute to the pastors and elders and to the congregation of Calvary Memorial Church in Oak Park for retiring the Legacy Campaign debt in only three years. Tomorrow is a much-deserved day of celebration.

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
