What happened to Autumn? I waited all year for it to arrive. And now Winter is trying to take over.

If winter comes early will Spring come early as well?

November is flying by with Thanksgiving almost here. Will December fly by as well? Puzzlements to be certain...

It was grand to see so many of our precious young ones (and one a bit older) at the Moment with Youth within the service this past Sunday. The children were perfectly behaved, attentive and responsive. They have so much to offer us, so much we can learn from t...

I really missed seeing our younger friends at A Moment with Youth this past Sunday. I debated back and forth about having it and even had an idea brewing in my head, but finally decided against it as I was unsure of what the parents and congregation in general...

Dear Friends,

I am extremely pleased to be your Interim Pastor. I sincerely believe that God has led me here for this time and I am eager to be your shepherd and to serve this congregation. Spring Creek Church has a proud history first, as a Congregational Chur...

It is easy for any of us t...

Many of us remember those epic words uttered by Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz — "There's no place like home." It is nice to get away from home and the day to day activities, stresses, and strains of our "normal" routines. Vacations lead us, hopefully, to a pla...

Most people want to be prepared in the case of an emergency. Today, we are better able to prepare for those occasional situations in which we need help. Our smart phones, for example, have apps we can use to summon help. In the dramatic reading of Psalm 79:1-9...

Have you ever had one of those nights when you are ready to go to bed and then it hits you? You have a "craving" for something to eat. It might have been a commercial you saw concerning a food that converges on your senses to the point that you not only see th...
