The Cottleville Pizza Ranch had the privilege of blessing so many of those who serve our community on Christmas Eve!
First, where does Jesus Christ now reside, in the life of the believer? Inside us; more precisely, in our hearts:
Now that this is the second week of 2024, I’m still thinking about what this year could look like for me. I heard the question asked in a podcast, “Is your soul ready for 2024?”. That really got me thinking; am I truly bringing God into my life and into all my plans.
When I was growing up, “New Years Resolutions” seemed to be a much bigger deal than they are today.
Who did Jesus bring with him for the Transfiguration? Matthew 17:1-13.

We are quickly approaching 2024 and all that a new year brings. Resolutions, Biggest Loser for some here, new hopes and dreams for the next 12 months. It’s a good time to hit the reset button and I always look forward to it. For now, however, we can take a few moments to reflect back on 2023. Think about these questions… your responses can be big or small, silly or serious:

This week's story of impact is a foundational one. It's the reminder of the birth of baby Jesus! Jesus was born to set us free and because of His birth we now have hope in eternity with our God in Heaven! The impact of Jesus's birth is the greatest impact story of all, and one in which I hope that you can find meaning in the days, weeks, and year to come! Amen
10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
