Minion Night at Awana – 10/18/17

Once a month in Awana at First Central Bible Church, we have a theme night. Tonight, back by popular demand, was Minion Night. Kids and leaders dressed in their finest Minion attire. Gru and the Fluffy Unicorn even made an appearance. Another fun night at FCBC, along with our usual assortment of games, songs, Bible lessons, and memory verses. A great ministry impacting the next generation.

Moses’ funeral service

On Sunday, I was scheduled to preach Deuteronomy 34 at First Central Bible Church in Chicopee, MA. It was part of our series on the life of Moses. Rather than merely talk about the death of Moses, we decided to hold a funeral service. Tylunas Funeral Home loaned us a casket for the day. In addition to the casket, we had a Jewish prayer shawl, a pair of Rainbow sandals, and a walking stick my wife brought back from New Zealand. Our elders read Scripture, an elders’ wife read Moses’ life history, and several “friends” of Moses shared their remembrance of him. I then used Deuteronomy 34 to talk about three lessons we can learn from Moses’ death. Here’s the bulletin and a couple of pictures from the day.

Happy Birthday, Jon!

Happy 31st Birthday to our son, Jonathan! You’ve grown from a cute, fun-loving little boy to a wise, talented, godly adult. Mom & I are proud of you. We’re excited to see how God will use for his kingdom purposes. May God grant you many more years to grow in your relationship with Christ and to serve him with joy. Celebrate!

Take a Hike

I went for a drive and hike with Rik Martin & Joe Trevathan, two men at First Central. Rik introduced us to the Busby Trail in the Savoy Mountain State Forest, the Hoosac Tunnel, lunch at the Cold River Café, and numerous back roads and scenic drives in the Mohawk Trail region of Western Massachusetts. It was a very good day.

Niagara Falls – Day 2

Our second day at Niagara Falls started at the Cave of the Winds, where you can walk to the base of American & Bridal Veil Falls. The majesty and power is breathtaking. We also visited the Theater to watch a 30-minute film on the history and background of the falls. We concluded the day with seeing the falls after dark. It was an enjoyable experiencing God’s creative wonders.

Niagara Falls

We arrived today at Niagara Falls, NY, USA. We did the Maid of the Mist which is a boat that takes you to the base of the falls. We rode the trolley around town, visited the Niagara Aquarium, and had dinner at the Rain Forest Café. We even saw a wedding party on our way back to the hotel. It was a very good day.
