  • Jesus has chosen to save you

    The Apostle Paul wrote: God has chosen you. (1 Thes 1:4) We can learn a lot about being saved from this little sentence.

  • Don’t risk losing heat this winter

    It’s not too late in the season to benefit from an inspection and tune up of your home heating system. Whether you have a forced-air furnace with full house vents, direct vent heaters in multiple rooms, a wood or pellet stove or an oil-fired boiler with radiators, we have a long winter ahead of us.
    Any necessary repairs can be made now before we’re in the full force of winter, when quick service might be impossible to get. Plus, you’ll add years to the life of your heat system by doing regular maintenance.
