Grief and Comfort

by Aaron Moore

It was a Friday morning. I was running late for work because I had stayed out late on Thursday night on a date with Sarah. Mom had babysat for us that night as she did so often. I remember coming home after our date to find mom asleep on the couch. She sat up in […]

A Dangerous Thing

by Ron Tippens

On Sunday August 30th we welcomed another church to join with in ministry on the ARPC campus: The New Life Nepali Church. Their pastor is a small, lovely lady – Pastor Mina. Pastor Mina founded a new church in her native Nepal where less than 3% of the population is Christian. She shared with us […]

Sam

by Aaron Moore

My family got a new puppy last week. He is an Australian Shepherd and I’m told he was bred to corral children. He sleeps a lot, maybe because the kids run him to exhaustion whenever his eyes are open. We took him to the Back to School cookout last Friday at the park. I fastened […]

Bootie

by Ron Tippens

I didn’t know… that Lucy was a Washington Redskins fan and knew their fight song by heart, that Lucy loved beer, that Lucy sat all day at a sports event with a broken ankle and wrist with her church’s young adult group because she didn’t want to ruin their day, that Lucy’s husband was a […]

Abiding Connection

by Aaron Moore

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the […]

Knowing Christ

I Hate Running

by Aaron Moore

I hate running. It hurts. It’s laborious with little to show in the waistline. It’s embarrassing thinking about everyone watching my belly bounce and my red blotchy face pulse and gasp for air. In my whole life I’ve only found two ways to run that actually bring me enjoyment. First, when I run in a […]

Love One Another

by Ron Tippens

My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know God if you don’t love. I John […]

There are Two Sides of the Coin!

by Ron Tippens

WE ALL KNOW John 3:16-17 . . . For God so loved the world that God gave God’s only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. ASTOUNDING […]

Making music and living the Gospel

by Aaron Moore

When I started my undergrad degree in music I had no idea what I was stepping into. This discipline of music was more than a study; it was more than a collection of information and application. It was a calling to master an art of taking what was written on a page, and expressing it […]
