The antics of the ACLU

by Kim Alexander

Well, just today I read that the ACLU is going after a university in Montana. Oh my, they may have mentioned God in a graduation service, and of course that goes against the Constitution and the separation clause. Excuse me – I challenge anyone to find the great religion clause that everyone likes to talk about. You […]

Bible Reading

by Kim Alexander

The first Sunday of May I encouraged the SLBC congregation to read through the Gospel of Matthew. It would be interesting to see how many actually did this. I heard some very discouraging news on my way to the office this morning. Most Christians who claim to be Christians are not practicing their Christianity. That […]

Memorial Day and our Soldiers

by Kim Alexander

This coming Monday will be Memorial Day. In the Webster’s dictionary we read, "May 30th, formerly observed as a legal holiday in most states of the United States in remembrance of war dead." I find it a little disturbing that the word "formerly" is used in the definition above. We celebrate Memorial Day in REMEMBRANCE of all […]

Finances in a World Gone Mad

by Kim Alexander

How do you and I handle our money today? Some people would rather not talk about it. Others say, “There you go again, you pastor’s always talk about money.” Are you aware that 16 out of the 38 parables in the Bible deal with money? The Bible devotes 500 verses on the subject of prayer, […]

Graduation Banquet

by Kim Alexander

Kudos’ to whom kudos’ are due. We held another graduation banquet last night honoring five of our graduates from Timberlake High school (Tyler, Jessica, Kyle, Jamie, and Tamara). Kelly Thiel is to be commended for a wonderful job on the Parmesan chicken, salad, green beans, and rolls – makes you hungry doesn’t it. The young people (under […]

Repaint, Repaint, Repaint

by Kim Alexander

I’m telling you this funny in light of the pictures I’ve posted of painting our son’s home this past weekend.  The story is told of a church that needed to paint its building. The pastor called around and got a good sized work crew together. They chose a color to paint the building and then […]

Resolutions for Life

by Kim Alexander

   When I use the word resolution I am not speaking of the once a year resolution that many of us make on New Year’s Day. I am speaking of something which has greater influence and great impact on all around us. I am speaking of a major life-change, a transformational way to live ones […]

Is Salvation Secure?

by Kim Alexander

Can you be saved one day and lost the next? This is a question that I just spent time handling on the phone with a senior that is about to graduate from High school. You see, I recently preached in Hebrews 6:4-6, and I taught that these verses are more about security than insecurity. These […]

Are your ready for the Storm?

by Kim Alexander

I just finished listening to a sermon preached by Troy Moody at the SLBC this past Sunday 5/23/10. Troy was our guest speaker while I was away in Seattle helping our oldest son and his wife paint their new home. Troy did a fantastic job connecting with our body. His message was very practical, and […]
