Sharing Thoughts on the Heidelberg Catechism

February 25th, 2014 by Pastor Scott Rees

I've recently learned that the best way for me to keep current in blogging on our website is to simply share parts of what I am currently thinking about our life in Christ. I tried to approach blogging as weekly assignments, but that failed. So, I figured it would be easiest for regular content for me to share the things I'm thinking of all the time.

Complaining, Adapting, Thriving

February 15th, 2014 by Pastor Scott Rees

A few days ago I was taking my wife, Patti, to work because her car was in the shop. Lucky for her it was that morning when those big, heavy snowflakes came. It was beautiful to watch, but it ruined the commute and workday for many.

Seasons Are Not Forever

February 11th, 2014 by Pastor Scott Rees

As I write this my iphone says it’s 10 degrees and the website I checked said it is 7 degrees. The website also said that it is 12 degrees in Islip. That means that it is a lot colder way out East here in Oakdale!!
