Sacrifice... Luke 9:23 says, "Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." To be a true disciple, to be in close proximity and follow within speaking,...

Suppressing your need... I have never run my car out of gas. I have come very close but, as of yet, have never become stranded on the side of the road because I forgot to fuel-up. Years ago, people did not have the luxury of a low fuel indicator like...

"Si quiere ver lo que nunca ha visto, tiene que hacer lo que nunca ha hecho." This is a statement on a wall in one of our churches in Costa Rica . Our 2011 Hillview Mission Trip Team had this printed on their shirts for their trip to El Salvador...

Is Glenn Beck A Christian?

Evangelism 101 - c
We experienced another person accepting Christ for the first time at Hillview this past Sunday. PTL!!!!!!! God is good and has blessed us. We need to continue to invite people who do not know Christ to church so they can hear the word of God. With that...

Evangelism 101 - b
What is a friend? Proverbs 17:17 "A friend loves at all times..." Friends are there no matter what. They support you, care for you, help when needed and pray for you. They are honest. They tell you things that may be difficult to bear because...

Evangelism 101-a
In my daily Bible readings this past week, I read the last chapter in the book of Matthew where it says, "Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...

Trunk or Treat and the Chili Cook-Off were a huge success. Over 100 people attended Wednesday night and it was the first time for many of them. The kids and even the adults were all dressed up. There was a lot of excitement in the air. The tension ran...

P.I.G.
For the past few Wednesday nights I have been challenged by a few of the young boys in our youth group to play a game that I played when I was young - P.I.G. That's the game where you shoot a basketball from somewhere on the court and, if you make...

Time To Get Fit Part 2
I'm back. Wow. Wasn't as bad as I thought. Probably need to get a new bicycle seat though (ouch). The prayer time was great. Several people waved, said Hi and even spoke to me. That surprised me! It took me 30 minutes to go the 5 miles. Is that...
