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 […]

Servants of the King

by PGBC

And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” (Mark 9:35) It seems like every time I turn around there is a need for people to help in some area of church life. From the nursery […]

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 […]

Knowledge of Him

by PGBC

Have you ever done something for others only to find out that it helped you as well? Something like that happened to me during Vacation Bible School this year. Going into VBS, my planning and preparing was just for the kids to have a good time and learn about Jesus, but something happened – they […]

Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.   As we have just celebrated Father’s Day I am reminded of how blessed I truly am, and how we are to trust in […]

Transitory Nature of Life

by PGBC

As I watched the slide show of the high school graduates we recently recognized in our church family, I realized just how fast life goes by. For the parents of those young adults it probably seemed just like yesterday when they were bouncing their graduates on a knee as babies. Life does indeed go by […]

That Time Of Year Again

by PGBC

Well it’s that time of year again, time to file your taxes! According to the IRS website the deadline to file is April 17th. Years ago, I worked alongside of a fellow who took a different approach to taxes than I did. My coworker had the philosophy that he would cheat as much as possible […]

Special! Special! Read All About It!

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 ESV         “And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. Special! Special! Read all about it! […]

Can You Hear Me Now?

by PGBC

You probably remember the old commercial where the guy walked around with his cell phone asking, “can you hear me now?”, he was demonstrating how well the signal was with his carrier. Evidently, he didn’t pull into our driveway or he would not have gotten a response! A bad signal can be frustrating, especially at […]

Screech, errrrrr, buzz, screeeeeeeeeeeech!

by PGBC

“This is a test of the emergency broadcast system, this is only a test!” How many times have we heard that over the years, and just when you didn’t expect it? The Emergency Broadcast System was designed to alert us of potential danger, and to clear the airwaves for a special bulletin. If the alert […]
