The Lord’s Supper
by Kevin Darnell on June 5th, 2024
The Lord’s Supper This coming Sunday, we will be observing the Lord’s Supper.  In 1 Corinthians chapter 11, we find that the church in Corinth had distorted its purpose.  It is possible to become so accustomed to observing this ordinance that we too can become jaded to its importance, and we can become insincere in our partaking of it.For 2,000 years, the church has observed the Lord’s Supper and i...  Read More

Judgy
by Kevin Darnell on May 8th, 2024
Judgy One day, I was having a conversation with a young lady about sin. She said, “Aren’t you being a little bit judgy? Doesn’t the Bible tell us not to judge?” Well, she is partly right. The verse that she was referring to is Matthew 7:1, and this is often misquoted and taken completely out of context. Jesus wasn’t prohibiting us from judging, He was giving us warning about the way we live our live...  Read More

Your Foundation Matters
by Kevin Darnell on May 1st, 2024
Your Foundation Matters Back in 2000, Capital One began an advertising campaign in which they asked, “What’s in your wallet?” For the last 24 years, they have built their entire advertising campaign on that slogan and it has become their advertising foundation.

Silo Christians
by Kevin Darnell on April 24th, 2024
Silo Christians Have you ever driven out in the country and seen tall storage structures? These are called silos, and they are used for storing grain. The term has found its way into the business world and it describes an isolated group or division within a company that functions apart from others in a way that hinders communication and productivity. This is what happened to the church in Corinth. C...  Read More
