Can We Still Be The Church?

1

Posted by Gary Pauley on

It is hard adjusting, I’ll admit it. The situation with Covid-19 is marginalizing the church experience. We are a long way from the 3 or 4 church service routine that some of us grew up with! At this point we meet once a week for over an hour. That’s a big change! On the other hand...

"these are written"

Posted by Gary Pauley on

"but these things are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah..."  (John 20:30)    We take for granted that things are written down. So much is written today that we have difficulty discerning texts that are of value and those that are not. The phrase "fake...

Juneteenth: Celebrating the Good.

Posted by Gary Pauley on

Juneteenth. It sounds strange because it has not benefitted by being embraced by popular culture. But if there was ever a holiday that made sense, this would be it. I mean c’mon, we “celebrate” Halloween. But this date actually has meaning. My experience has been that white...

Knowing My Neighbor

Posted by Tim Boyd on

Luke 10:29 But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" When I was growing up, I lived in a very segregated town in Alabama. There was a section for Blacks and another for Whites. My father delivered groceries for a store that he and my grandfather ran. I remember...

A Moment to Hurt

Posted by Gary Pauley on

I knew I needed to write a blog about this. But…how? I mean, what has not been said already? And what is controversial here? Who defends the practice of what happened to George Floyd? I think no one. And by “no one,” I realize there is some warped person who would try to...

At All Costs: the Soldier's Sacrifice.

Posted by Gary Pauley on

  I mentioned Sunday while preaching that I sometimes like to watch documentaries about World War 2. That was a perfect time to mention that it was Memorial Day…but I was preoccupied with the details of a unique Sunday of re-gathering.   Sunday, I watched a few more of those...

Faith, Hope, and Love...

Posted by Tim Boyd on

1 Corinthians 13:13 (NASB) But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love. What is really significant? What will really stand the test of time? What will have meaning when other things cease to do so? In the verse above, Paul refers to three of his favorite...

The Confidence of Hope

3

Posted by Gary Pauley on

It is fairly well known that the Christian concept of “hope” is profoundly different than the historic or secular version. We use the word in its secular sense every day: “I hope this coronavirus goes away soon!” We have no clue how soon it will happen, but it is our...

Building Our Worship.

2

Posted by Gary Pauley on

I recently read an article that struck me. It made a comment that was not unusual, but it struck me. It was about a church that could not record their Sunday services in their beautiful building because of a power outage. The church “could not imagine having services without their...

Coronavirus in Uganda

Posted by on

Ishak Semakula ministers all over Uganda working with churches, schools, villages, and orphanages. Pastor Pauley spent time with Ishak on a trip in 2018. On that trip we learned of the critical need for a well in a village north of the capital. FBC provided a well for that village. Ishak...
