Here We Go Again NOVEMBER 5, 2017~ PASTORKOCH By Paul Koch – Every year as the church celebrates All Saints Day, we turn our attention to our Lord’s words in Matthew Chapter 5. These words of blessing have become familiar to us.  We have grown use to their rhythm and their simple beauty. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

The Scariest Word in the Bible What is the scariest word in the Bible? What word stirs up the most anxiety amongst believers?
