Burney Food Co-op

Today I had the honor of speaking at the Burney Food Co-op.  For those who might not know, the Co-op is an awesome ministry sponsored by all of the churches in the intermountain area.  They meet a few times a month and at each meeting different pastors in the area take turns leading the Bible study time.  This week, I spoke from Luke 9: 23-35, the Transfiguration on top of the mountain...

Come Before Winter

By Pastor Thom McKee 

                  Last Sunday we looked at a personal letter written by Paul to his protégé Timothy. Many scholars believe that these may have been Paul's last words to Timothy and that he may have died shortly thereafter.  The book is called 2 Timothy, and it is part of what we call the pastoral epistles in the Bible...

Children's Christmas Program

We had a bit of a different Christmas program this year.  This year we had several children read from the Christmas story from Luke and Matthew, and we had a Children's sermon from Pastor Thom.  And of course we had the children singing Christmas carol's for the congregation.  It's always a great time watching the children perform and to see the hard work pay off for those who read in front of the church.  It is also a great time hearing them sing the classic Christmas songs for the church's enjoyment.

Christmas Cantata

This past weekend was the Third Annual Christmas Cantata held at our church.  The Cantata is put on every year by the Community Choir made up of members of multiple churches and other people in the community.  Accompanying the adult choir this year was a children's choir and bell performance.  It is always a pleasure to have the Cantata at our church and it's a joy to fill up our sanctuary with people from throughout the community.

Heroes of Faith

We have been going through Hebrews 11 during our Sunday morning sermon series for the past seven weeks.  While our sermon series is called Pictures of Faith, Hebrews 11 has often been referred to as the “Hall of Faith” or “Faith Heroes” throughout the years.  So as we have been learning about Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and more, I have been thinking about my own personal heroes of faith...

Second Harvest and Baptism

Today we had our annual Second Harvest and Baptism service.  First, pastor Thom preached from Deuteronomy, then we had the pleasure of baptizing one of our awesome kids, and finally we had delicious Tri-Tip and other yummy snacks as a church family.  It is always a great time when we can join together as the body of Christ and fellowship together.  Christ left us, His church behind, and we grow together when we fellowship and lift each other up...

The Real Meaning of our Harvest Celebration

by Thom McKee

                  Early this summer, I woke up to take a quick shower before I was going to head to Redding for a doctor's appointment.  But when I tried to turn on the shower, I knew that it was going to be a bad day.  No water was coming out and I knew the reason immediately.  Our well pump was out.  We have known that this little pump buried one hundred feet below us was on its last leg. But I had hoped that it was going to last a little longer....
