God’s Miracle of Peace

God’s Miracle of Peace

Is life a puzzle? Problems, questions, fears?  We all struggle with issues in our lives; they come and go in a constant barrage.  Sometimes you look at the pieces of your life, and they don’t seem to fit together.  Somewhere, there must be peace.  Where is that “Piece” of the puzzle? And so, the Signboard Message said:   IS LIFE A PUZZLE? WE HAVE THE MISSING PEACE!   The good news is that God offers us True Peace.  Eternal Peace. The Peace that we need, not...

Not a Cold Day in November? Be Thankful Anyway!!!

The following message was posted on our signboard: DON’T WAIT UNTIL A COLD DAY IN NOVEMBER TO BE THANKFUL!   Paul reminds us in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18… Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Always? In ALL circumstances? This is August! It’s blazing hot and you can’t walk 10 feet without sweating to death. Joyful? Thankful?!? What if… The Mortgage is due and the...

The Bible: Take it Personally!

The Bible is useless it brings you closer to God. In order for that to happen, you have to engage with the scripture; put yourself into the story and be willing to change.

Free of God, or Free in Christ?

Free of God, or Free in Christ?

The signboard message said “Freedom in Christ.”  But don’t many people prefer their own notion of freedom; a freedom apart from Christ?  A freedom FROM God?  Some may not understand the freedom that God offers, and instead they might prefer to have freedom to ignore God.  They might be more apt to ask the following and choose the second option:     FREEDOM IN CHRIST                   OR FREEDOM FROM CHRIST?   The “God Questions” Every human being eventually...

A Drop of Example, or a Gallon of Advice???

On May 10,2017 (several days before Mother’s Day), the following message was posted on our signboard: A DROP OF EXAMPLE IS WORTH MORE THAN A GALLON OF ADVICE      As we approach Mother’s Day, think about it…  What has left a deeper impression- what do yo remember most:  The things your Mom said, or the things she did? Chances are, you probably remember some great advice that Mom gave.  A host of sayings, scripture, music, or just plane home-spun wisdom constantly prod...

God Reigns and the Son Shines!

Why do bad things happen to good people? Is God really in control? Does He care???
On March 24, 2017 our Signboard said: “Forecast- God Reigns, and the Son Shines!”
No matter what happens, God is still in control and Jesus is ready to shine into our lives… if we let Him…

Singers Needed!

Singers Needed!

The signboard said… SINGERS NEEDED, IN CHOIR WITHIN      In no way is this to be considered a knock against our choir.  Even though we’re always open to new voices in the loft, we already do have some great singers. No, this isn’t specifically about the loft.  Singers are needed in the pews.  Singers are needed in the conference room.  Singers are needed in the office.  Singers are needed in the Sunday School rooms, in the Fellowship Hall, in the parking lot…...

There’s No “I” in “LOVE”!

There’s No “I” in “LOVE”!

The signboard said… THERE’S NO “I” IN “LOVE”!     OK…. maybe a little corny and trite.  Maybe a bit too much along the lines of the classic message that says “WHAT’S MISSING IN CH   CH?”  (if you need the answer… “U R” missing…). But, can love be truly selfless?  Don’t you have to love yourself before you can love others?  And don’t you have to think of yourself before you can love...

Prayer:  Steering Wheel or Spare Tire???

The next time you get into your car, notice what you do. It’s all habit so you probably haven’t even thought about it. But chances are, you sit down, buckle up, and then you start the engine. But before you go, what’s the first part of the car you touch? Or put it this way… do you start out by touching the Steering Wheel or do you instantly go to the Spare Tire?

The Power That’s Behind You

The following message was posted on our signboard on August 20, 2016:
“THE POWER BEHIND YOU IS GREATER THAN THE PROBLEM AHEAD OF YOU.”
God has given us His Spirit which not only helps us through the problems of life, but it also helps us to a deeper joy that comes with a faithful relationship to God.

Yes U-Turn!!!

Yes U-Turn!!!

We’re always told no.  Not possible.  Useless, worthless, “he’ll never change.” But we serve a God or redemption.  A God of miracles.   A  God  who wants to create a new life within us. And so, there are no “No U Turn” signs in God’s grace.  God invites and encourages U-Turns, and through the Holy Spirit lives are changed. And so, the following message was recently posted on  our signboard: YES U-TURN! God constantly offers us new lives.  If...

“PokeMon Go” Stops by PUMC!

Our church signboard has been chosen as a “PokeStop”! If you’re used to playing the video game “Pokemon Go”, you know what that means. If this is total gibberish to you, we’ll give a quick intro to Pokemon.
Either way, all of us need to keep returning to The Vine for strength.

God Work Ahead!

Our church is currently surrounded by construction. New handicapped accessible crossings. Road repairs. Road closures. Detours…
God is always at work in our lives, but He doesn’t usually wear a bright orange vest or grab our attention like a noisy jackhammer.
How can you see Him? How can you join Him???

April 1: National Atheist’s Day!

April 1: National Atheist’s Day!

On April 1, 2016, the following message was posted on our signboard: APRIL 1: NATIONAL ATHEIST’S DAY!   April First, like any other first day of the month, ushers in a new month.  It demands that we turn the page on our calendar.  But when that first day comes in the month of April, it takes on a special meaning:  April Fools Day! Now, that’s not a religious holiday.  We just wrapped up the season of Lent and celebrated the wonder of Easter.  We celebrate these Holy Days...

Experience the Sonrise Every Day!

Just before Easter Sunday 2016, the following message was posted on our Church’s Signboard: Experience the Sonrise Every Day!      Sunrise… If it’s a clear morning, we might be able to experience the Sun Rise, but the Son of God is risen every day! Have you ever seen a sunrise, or sunset, or rainbow, or some other view of God’s beautiful creation without “Experiencing” it?  Can you see a sunrise and just walk away without noticing?  Revelations...

It’s All About Jesus!

On December 26 the signboard said: IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!   ‘Twas the Day after Christmas, And all through the house. All the creatures were stirring, scampering like a mouse… There’s stuff under the tree, wrapping paper laying around, cookie crumbs on the dining room table.  All sorts of new “Things” to play with, new clothes to wear, fresh things to look at.  And there are a lot of new items added to the “To Do List”… gifts to be...

Make Christ a Presence Among the Presents!

We’re  currently in the Advent season of 2015.  Much of the hustle and bustle of this season is driven by the need to give gifts.  Many of us are consumed with two fundamental questions: “What does ___ want?” “What do I want?” To answer these questions and to prepare for Christmas morning, we run around searching the Internet, ads, and malls.  We scratch our heads.  We think, “what did I give so and so last year?”  “Does she already have one of...

Don’t Blow Your Knows!!!

The signboard message posted on 9/29/15 said: A WISE MAN SELDOM BLOWS HIS KNOWS (would certainly apply to wise women too!!!) We spend a lot of time in this church reading the Bible.  We all want to understand it better.  But what do we do with this knowledge?  Do we share it with others? Do we somehow use it to hit others over the head with the Bible to convince them of our point?  Or do we try to show others how “smart” we are? Sometimes we’re tempted to quote chapter and...

i-Phone? i-Pad?!?  Turn them off and say “I Pray”!!!

On September 4, 2015 the following message was posted on our signboard: I-PHONE? I-PAD? I PRAY!!!   Do we get so caught up in our gadgets that we forget to pray? Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are great ways to keep in touch with friends across the miles. But we’ve all heard stories (and have seen it first hand) when members of a family in a restaurant sit around the table staring at their smartphones instead of talking to each other. We waste chances to share with each other and...
