God Is On The Throne No Matter What Happens On Election Day

by PGBC

I can hardly believe this year is almost over! As November arrives I immediately think of Thanksgiving and the reality that we should be thankful every day. As Thanksgiving approaches start now asking God to open your eyes to all the things you take for granted daily and be thankful for them.  I think of […]

Dry Bones Come Alive

by PGBC

I recently read again Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel chapter 37. I have read the account before, but this time I literally had thoughts of Ellijay as I read it. In chapter 37: 4-5, the Lord tells Ezekiel to “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear […]

What do all these subjects have in common? Missions in Ecuador…..Aviation Fellowship…Nursing…Wheaton College….Poisonous Spears….Shrunken Heads…Wycliffe Bible Translators…Acaua Indians.

Let Love Be Without Hypocrisy

by PGBC

As I sit and write this month’s article I have just enjoyed good singing, good preaching and good food. If you’re guessing where I was at, then you must not have come to the Old-Fashioned Camp Meeting! I really enjoyed the service, and it brought back a childhood memory as Brother Chad Kelly preached out […]

When God Brings Changes
