Welcome to our website. I hope that you will find it helpful and that it will answer your questions about our church. This is the page where I share thoughts, articles I read, and/or other information. If I can be of help to you, please call and leave a message on our church phone, 814-355-0890.
There is much in the weather that parallels my life. Most of my days are filled with blue sky and sunshine with a gentle wind. Those are the days that pass smoothly, rather predictably, and pleasantly. God is with me and provides for all my needs and most of my desires. The Spirit fills me with inspiration for sermons and words to share with others.
A few days are so foggy that I can’t see clearly to the back of our property. The gray fog rises to meet the gray sky so that they become one. Those are the days when I’m not sure of myself and feel a bit lost. God is with me to guide and reassure.
Thankfully I don’t have too many really stormy days or nights. Those are the days when I’m traveling through driving, blinding rain. The wind is fiercely howling, and I am so afraid. My nerves would be shot if I didn’t know that God is always with me to protect and comfort me.
In all kinds of weather, I can be at peace with God present before, behind, beside, and within me. That’s true for you, too.
