  • Church Receives Grant

    Grace and Glory Lutheran Church, Goshen, recently received a $5,000 “Lutheran Community Matthew 25: Neighbors in Need” grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation.

    The funding was awarded to Grace and Glory’s Bread of Life Food Pantry based on its effectiveness in addressing physical, emotional and/or spiritual needs in the local community such as food, clothing, shelter, fellowship and care for the sick based on Jesus’ words in Matthew 25: 35-36.

  • My Living Will – Marital Love

    What do kids think about marriage?

    Ten-year-old Kristen says, “No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.”

    Camille, 10, says you might be able to tell if a couple is married based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.

    Lynnette, 8, says about dating, “Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.”

  • My Living Will – Character Counts in Life

    When do you think this news headline was written? “Gambling, robbery, sexual immorality and violence are prevalent. Half of all children are born out of wedlock; purity and fidelity to the marriage vow are sneered out of fashion. Corruption in politics is rampant. The world is broken.” This was written in 1694.

  • Local churches help fund eastern Kentucky school

    Two local churches are helping make Christmas special for students at a school in the mountains of eastern Kentucky.

    Pewee Valley Presbyterian and Crestwood Christian Church are taking donations for the Lotts Creek Settlement School, which is based in Knott County.

    One shared member, Jill MacNiven, who leads mission trips to the school and collects donations year-round, is leading the church’s Christmas time donations.

  • My Living Will – Being Thankful

    Over the last month I have seen and heard more Christmas commercials than ever and we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving.

     Thanksgiving has become the forgotten holiday which is sadly all too common in America.  For a land blessed with such an amazing bounty we sure do have a lot of whining, moaning and complaining about the lack of stuff and that is just under my own roof.  Have you decided to give a living will of thankfulness to your family and friends?  What keeps you from being more thankful?

  • Southeast buys Crestwood center

    Southeast Christian Church will become the new landowner of the Crestwood Station Shopping Center, the church has announced. 

    The church, which opened a campus in the shopping center nearly three years ago, has an agreement in place to become the center’s landowner for $3.3 million. The agreement excludes the space currently occupied by All About Kids. 

  • How can I live life with passion?

    In a devotional recorded in A Fifth Portion of Chicken Soup for the Soul (© 1998), an encounter at the airport is shared by Michael Hargrave.  He tells of a man who is met by his family after his flight. 

    He hugs and kisses each as if he has been gone a long time, but with great passion he gives his wife the longest kiss Mr. Hargrave had ever witnessed, and then stares longingly into her eyes and then mouths the words, “I love you.”

  • Southeast Christian buys land for Oldham Campus expansion

  • Living passionately has lasting effects

    We know what a will is.  A legal document that establishes how we want all our worldly possessions to be divided amongst the people we care about and the organizations we want to support in our death. 

    Today I want to write about your “Living Will.”  This is what we want to pass on to those around us by the way we live our lives.  Our legacy of beliefs, morals and attitudes that we hope are communicated by the way we live our lives.
