Check out our latest episode with the Rev. Dr. Tom Ricks. He is the founding pastor of Greentree Presbyterian Church in Kirkwood, MO (suburb of St. Louis). His church has planted other churches and he is a multiplication leader in the EPC denomination. We are thankful for him and it was very encouraging. We hope you will listen.

Thanks you
Candace Owens and Thomas Sowell said it BEST with FACTS!
Candace Owens and Thomas Sowell have spoken about these times of unrest factual.
This is what your “pastor” is writing in response to equality and a cop kneeling to show unity.
This is who your leadership chose as a pastor? “You kind of people”, pretty judgmental for a so called man of the cloth.
I am a member of Hope Presbyterian Church in Folsom, California. We are a very small congregation that left The PCUSA 3-4 years ago. We are trying to develop a women’s ministry for our church and community. We are also interested in having a retreat. We are looking for locations in Northern California that we could use for a women’s Christian retreat. Any suggestions?
Please advocate for Cyntoia’s clemency. Gov. Haslam is an ordained elder in your Church.

Juvenile life sentences are a cruel and unusual form of punishment. Cyntoia Brown was only 16 years old when she was sentenced to life in prison for killing a child predator. She is a s*x trafficking victim who deserves to be free. We need you to do what is right and request clemency for Cyntoia Brown.

Cyntoia Brown is a girl who our justice system failed. A s*x trafficking victim who after days of being abused and drugged by her captors, was sold to a 43 year-old armed child predator. She feared for her life. She defended her life. This is Cyntoia’s story. The story of a victim who found the courage to fight back. The story of a victim whose courage and whose trauma was ignored by a system
that was supposed to protect her. A system that, instead of protecting, sentenced a child s*x trafficking victim to life in prison because she defended herself. Cyntoia Brown has been locked away in prison since 2004 and has been fighting for her freedom ever since.
Our outreach program is totally free and makes sharing the message of Jesus easy for all ages because you do it through simple acts of kindness. In the free helpful service or giving of a practical gift it becomes easy to connect it to the love that Jesus has for the recipient. In the free act of kindness they also receive a little taste of what God's grace is like as neither can be bought or earned at any price. A sharing card delivers that message and also invites them to your church as you provide that information on the back of the card. All sorts of kindness ideas, things to say, places to do your acts of kindness and even the cards to share with all you having to do is insert your ministry info onto them and print them off. We call it P.A.C.K. (Planned Acts of Christian Kindness) and it is now in 104 countries around the world! Simply sign up at: http://www.acts18.org/christian-kindness-program and the link to the program download will be immediately provided. We need to get better at sharing this "Good News" with everyone around us and P.A.C.K. helps us to get started and then improve at our own pace. God bless!
Please continue to Pray for our friend and missionary Pastor Andrew who is a Godly man serving the LORD in Turkey and his wife Lorine.
Just wonderful--My good Mel's Diner friends, David and Carol Sutton, directed me to your page and all those fantastic, enriching, and interesting resources--Awesome--
Keep up the splendid work; and may God and His angels walk with all of you--
EPC, your brothers and sisters at First Pres Orlando continue to pray for Pastor Brunson, and we celebrate his most recent news.

Myself and members of the Worship Arts department wrote and recorded music using the lyrics Andrew penned while in prison. Everyone who contributed to this project gave freely of their time and creativity, and no one will profit from this.

Our hope is simple - that this song will help share Andrew's story and raise ongoing awareness for his situation in Turkey.
