Have you ever visited a manufacturing company? Maybe you’ve watched a few of those Made in America shows on the Travel Channel, the one where “Cliff” from Cheers (John Ratzenberger) visits various American manufacturers and takes the viewers on a mind-boggling tour showing step-by-step how everyday items are made. Cool stuff, but I promise you it’s not nearly as cool as getting your own personal tour of such a place!...Keep Reading

Serving Women in Need

I have had the privilege of volunteering at Birth Choice for the past 8 1⁄2 years, first as a client advocate and most recently as a prenatal/ parenting class teacher. Every day that I meet with clients is a blessing for me. It’s always exciting to see how God is working in every single aspect of our ministry. Some of my most gratifying experiences have been with young women who walk in without appointments. A couple of those were abortion-minded women, but each one changed her mind when she learned that her baby had a heartbeat as early as three to five weeks. These women were also given the opportunity to see their babies on untra-sound. The young ladies might not have been on my schedule, but they most certainly were on God’s!...Keep Reading

Reflections on Our New Community Garden

Posted onApril 23, 2015 | by: David Knack | 0 comments

Little hands hoisted tiny shovels full of rich soil into cedar boxes. A team practiced the art of measure twice (or maybe five times) cut once.

We Support CASA

There is a crisis in our community in which the basic rights and needs of our most vulnerable citizens—our children—are being violated because the very system that is supposed to be looking out for them simply does not have the resources to do so. If I sound passionate, it’s because I am. If I sound angry with the system, it’s because I am. And I submit that you should be too....Keep Reading
