Something is Better than Nothing

Something is Better than Nothing

In our area, it is not uncommon to see people on the side of the road or at intersections asking for money or help. The sad reality is that there are many people in our own community who are in great need. Worse still, winter is coming. The cold temperatures can be brutal for those […]

Ready or Not: Serve While You Learn

Yesterday, we had a great time of worship at Real Life Fellowship. We spent time singing, talking, hearing God’s Word, praying and enjoying being a church family.

We all deal with difficult and challenging things in life and especially as we seek to follow Christ. Life can be hard at times, so it is important for us to remember that God is faithful. He gives us strength. He gives us wisdom. He gives us help when we need it. One of the […]
