Who are you?

by PGBC

Who are you?  I am not asking what name is on your driver’s license or ID card.  I am not asking what people call you or what your nickname is.  As men, we have the tendency to answer that question by what we do.  I am not asking about your profession or anything like that.  […]

Thank You

by PGBC

If you will indulge me for a few moments, I want to take a little time to brag on you! I am so grateful for this church! I am so honored to get to serve alongside you here at Pleasant Grove. As I write this article, we have just come through our weekend event with […]

Life is too short to waste time on things that don’t impact eternity

by PGBC

As I write this article I am sitting at my mother’s bedside as she spends her last moments on this earth.  I am so grateful to know that she placed her faith in Christ as a young girl and truly sought to live a Christian life. My mother was not perfect, but she always sought […]

Where Is Your Focus?

by PGBC

Growing up in Augusta, some time during my teenage years the Augusta Mall started doing a big July 4th fireworks celebration. It quickly became very popular with one of the local radio stations broadcasting music that was meant to coincide with the fireworks. I can remember being in several different locations to watch the fireworks. […]

Spiritual Markers

by PGBC

In the Old Testament we see numerous times when the people of God would set up altars or markers to remember something God had done. God spoke to Jacob and told him what He was going to do in his life in Genesis 35. CSB17 Genesis 35:11 God also said to him, “I am God […]

Jesus Receives The Needy

by PGBC

In Mark 5:21-43 we find the account of Jesus encountering two people that were from very different places in life. First, we have Jairus the respected member of society and a leader in the synagogue. Jairus had prestige in his community, but Jairus also had a great need. You see Jairus’s daughter was very ill […]

A Church That Cares About The Community Around Her

by PGBC

I am so grateful to be a part of a church that cares about the community around her and wants to reach out beyond the walls of our church! We have been to both the high school and middle school Christian Learning Centers and just shown the love of Christ to young people by sharing […]

Be a Part of a Great Work of God

by PGBC

We are just one month into the New Year and I can imagine that many, perhaps most, of the New Year’s resolutions have already been broken. We come into the year with great expectations and plans, but often don’t put details to the goals or plans and therefore make it very difficult on ourselves to […]

Let God Be The Focus OF 2019

by PGBC

I can hardly believe a new year is already upon as.  As we look forward to 2019, I pray we do so with great anticipation.  It might be tempting to look around and lament over a decaying world, a crazy political climate, and a frenetic pace that seems to have no end and worry about […]

Eternity Hangs in the Balance

by PGBC

I was reminded of this passage this week.  Take a look at this account from the Gospel of John. CSB17 John 1:43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. He found Philip and told him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael […]
