Throughout history the people of God have been delivered from the desert, literally and figuratively. Through Christ, the Bread of Life, God feeds the hungry soul. He provides Living Water to those “in a dry and weary land” (Psalm 63:1). He replaces the dry sand of sin with the refreshing waters of baptism. ...
In the Psalms, we not only find the inspired Word of God to his people, but we find the inspired Word of God from his people back to Him. The Psalms are God’s collection of worship songs and prayers given to us to know how to approach Him in referent, exuberant, theologically sound, and emotionally charged praise. In the Psalms, God has written songs for his Church to sing....
In the Living Hope Church Check-Up report presented by Pastor Paul yesterday, we found that one of Living Hope's weak areas is Compassion and Outreach to those who do not yet know Jesus. We would like to share a tangible way that you can be a part of helping those who are in need in our community....
Dear friends, Where would we be without God's precious Word? How would we know of God's unconditional love for us, or of His forgiveness? Where would we turn for comfort? What would guide our conduct, or our decisions? Who would be our worthy model for living? How would we know of God's character? I cannot even imagine life without God's Word! It always amazes me over and...Keep Reading

Dear friends, I asked a group of women once if they could describe the Women's Ministry of EFCW. One woman answered as follows: 'No matter where you are in life, spiritually or chronologically, there is a place for you to be involved and grow". Through the grace of God and the working of the Holy Spirit in us, may this statement be found to be true! Our ministries come ...Keep Reading
Pray that we would always keep Christ at the center of our teaching, that the gospel would be emphasized in all we teach, and that the children at EFCW would truly understand that Jesus did not come to turn them from ‘bad’ to ‘moral’, but that he came to transform them from ‘dead’ to ‘alive’....Keep Reading
This past month I have been praying for the children at EFCW in a new and exciting way. Rather than general prayers of "please bless E-Kids", I've been praying 3 specific things for each child by name that he/she would develop a hunger for things of God; that he/she would become the person God created him/her to be; and that he/she would honor parents and resist rebellio...Keep Reading
What a joy, and what a delight it was! 59 women, all with different stories, ages, and backgrounds, gathered at Green Lake Bible Camp last Friday and Saturday for our annual winter retreat for women. The theme of the retreat was "Abide", as taken from the John 15 passage in the Bible regarding the vine and the branches. Our facilitator was Dr. Christine Osgood from the Tw...Keep Reading
All of the gospels record for us an interaction that is often overlooked in the passion narrative. It takes place between Jesus, Pilate, and a man named Barabbas. We do not know much about this Barabbas except for what Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John tell us. We do know that he was a notorious prisoner (Matt. 27:16), a rebel (Mk. 15:7), a murderer (Lk. 23:25), and a robber (...Keep Reading
