  • Spring Gala at FBC Taylorsville

    First Baptist Church of Taylorsville is hosting a Spring Gala April 3 at 5 p.m.  featuring a concert by published composer and musician Mary McDonald.

  • Local youth group learns about hunger through 30-hour famine program
  • COLUMN: The hope of the Lord lies in what is to come

    “Once upon a time,” that is the way fairy tales start.  It conjures up images of a better time.  Fairy tales always start off well, then things fall apart, but all ends well and “They lived happily ever after.”
     I think a lot of people are living with “once upon a time” syndrome.  We idolize the past and forget that the good old days weren’t all that good.  We look back to some golden era in our history and want to regain its imagined glory.

  • COLUMN: Thanks for letting me share God’s word

    First of all, thank you for reading this.  And thanks to all of you who took the time this week to say hello and tell me you enjoyed my columns.  What a blessing when I meet someone for the first time or pass someone in the grocery store and they say, “Hey, aren’t you the guy that writes that column?” or, “I liked your column the other day.”  So thanks for reading and thanks for taking the time to talk to me about it.

  • The hard truths and soft lies

    Did you ever see movies about the flying contraptions that were tried before the Wright Brothers came along?  Some looked like they would shake themselves apart; others looked like bird suits so people would crash as they flew off of cliffs.  That is an example of the hard truth and the danger of the soft lie.

  • God can shed light and warmth on the dark, cold nights of life

    when life seems like a dreary winter day. It is grey, cheerless, and bitterly cold. The sun hides its face for days on end and the cold seems to seep into both bones and heart. Perhaps you have had those times.

  • To God be the glory, alone.

    In a moment of victory, Greg Jennings, wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers told a national audience that the glory belongs to God alone after his team won back the Lombardi Trophy at the 45th annual Super Bowl.

    Jennings, catching four passes for 64 yards, scored two touchdowns in the biggest football game of his life.

  • Gifts of thought, not convenience!

    Are you ready for the big day? If you are male you probably don’t even know what I am talking about. If you are a woman, you have probably already thought about sharing a romantic Valentine’s Day. Now I realize that is a generalization perhaps colored by my own experiences, but it seems generally true to me that men struggle with expressing love in ways that women really appreciate.

  • The Lord wants our obedience, not our excuses

    By Patrick Nix, Pastor, Lighthouse Baptist Church

    Exodus 3:1-4:17 records the calling of Moses. The burning bush experience was one of revelation of God as the Great I Am to a reluctant leader. The key to understanding this passage is: trust! God believed in Moses as his man – and Moses needed to learn to trust God wholly – and the people of God would grow in their faith, too. God doesn’t call us to tasks too difficult for him. Oftentimes, what the Lord asks of us is nearly impossible to us, but not for him!
