Thought for Today – Archie Boyle

God encourages us all to be included in His family and to take care of each other. There is a place for is all in His church, no matter who we are or what we have done. Faith heals all wounds, eventually. 1 Timothy 5:8 Everyone should take […]

Thought for Today – Archie Boyle

I am responsible for sharing the gospel with those in my sphere of influence. Matthew 9:37-38 Jesus said to his followers, “There is such a big harvest of people to bring in. But there are only a few workers to help harvest them. God owns the harvest. Ask […]

Thought for Today – Archie Boyle

Jesus modeled a habit of worship we should imitate. – make regular worship a part of your life. Luke 4:16 Jesus traveled to Nazareth, the town where he grew up. On the Sabbath day he went to the synagogue as he always did. He stood up to read.
