Don Baker, who brings hope and the love of Christ through his ministry, brought back with him some attire from Nigeria.He says the people wear these outfits in times of celebration. Don was back last Sunday from Africa where he is working on a hospital for Samaritan’s Purse. He will be going back at the end of this month to finish the hospital. Thank you Don for all that you do!

Spring is here! Praise the Lord! I thoroughly enjoy the longer warmer days and, although my allergies are always an issue, the beauty of the flowers, trees and crops breaking forth from the ground create a song of praise to the Creator of the universe.
However on a more serious thought, addictions are prevalent in our society today. Addictions can best be described as a habit forming behavior; that often alters life in a destructive way. Addictions to drugs, prescription medication, alcohol, cigarettes, shopping, gambling, and even food. These addictions can and often do produce destructive consequences to individuals, families, towns, communities and innocent others.
Have you ever considered some positive addictions that we as Christians should be engaged in?
Addictions to prayer- pray without ceasing.
Addictions to Worship- Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.
Addictions to giving- More blessed to give than to receive.
Addictions to serving- Be doers of the Word.
Addictions to Scripture- All Scripture is inspired by God.
Addictions to Christ- Crow in Christ likeness.
These Spiritual addictions have several outcomes; they’ll relieve stress, promote inner peace, create joy, encourage kindness, and will draw us ever nearer to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
Let’s get high on Jesus.

Here are some pictures to share with you taken of our pretty spring flowers that have begun to bloom.
I personally wasn’t in church last Sunday but I guess for those that were, it was quite an experience! They heard a loud boom and discovered that lightning apparently struck this tree out front. You can see where it removed the bark. A little too close for comfort I’d say!
