Gospel Playlist

This is a regular feature now that replaced "Playing on the Radio." I will be sharing songs from my "Gospel Playlist" on my phone.

The gospel is good news.  It reminds us what Christ has DONE for us.  As I share, I hope it will be an encouragement to you today. 

Song today is: All I Have Is Christ by Sovereign Grace Music

Hide N Seek Program Today

It's hard to believe that another year of Hide N Seek has come and gone.  Hide N Seek is our midweek ministry to 4 year olds through 4th grade students at Hesston MB Church. Each year we end with a program for families and the congregation.  This used to occur in the evening, but the last few years we have
moved it to Sunday during our worship service.

At the program, our kid's choir will sing several songs they have learned this year.  You will also hear the Bible verses that each of the age groups have learned during Bible Memory.  I encourage you to come out and support our kids and you will be blessed as they share their gifts of song and scripture with you. 

Our worship service is at 10:10 a.m. and our address is 610 W. Randall in Hesston, KS.

You Are Crucified

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

Tweets and more tweets

Here are some of my favorite tweets from the last few weeks.  This is one of the blessings of social media where we can hear the gospel from people all over the world. If you like the tweet, go and follow the person on Twitter.
When your heart is abiding in Jesus, you want to worship him. @pauldunk And once you get alone with God, you begin to discover that being with God – that knowing him and his love for you – is the best and most beautiful thing in the world. (Jack Miller) It's possible to be drawn to the Bible, theological study and discourse, and even to teaching, preaching, serving, and church -- yet be disconnected relationally from Jesus. If we are seeking "his kingdom" but not seeking HIM, then we are missing the point entirely. @scottsauls Without the words, “for you,” the good news, the Gospel, does not exist, only more rules. Without these words Christianity becomes meaningless. Jesus died for you. It is finished for you. The words “for you” are the most nec…

Summer Camp

I love summer camp!  How about you?  I have some of my greatest memories at camp including my decision to follow Jesus.  I am thankful for Westminster Woods in Fall River, KS.  I also have many great memories working at camps including Westminster Woods, Camp Tawakoni and now Southern District Mennonite Brethren Kids Camp at Tabor College. 

Below you will find information for this summer's camps for 3rd graders through high school.  To register for these camps, go to If you have questions about Kids Camp, please contact me.  For Jr. High and Sr. High Camps, please contact our youth pastor, Jared Menard.

Word for 2018-abide

My word for 2018 is abide.  I have this great picture over my fireplace made by a good friend that reminds me to abide each day.  My understanding of abide is to "be with Jesus."

What does it mean to abide?  Here are some definitions to help us better understand the word. 
The Greek word "meno" which is a verb means "to stay". It can also be translated as abide, continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry for. We will also see these in the Old Testament as well. Each week I will share a verse (or two) to help us better understand abiding.
Let me dwell in your tent forever!
Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
5 For you, O God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.6 Prolong the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generations!
7 May he be enthroned forever before God;
appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him! (Psalm 61:4-7) He who dwells in the shelter of the M…
