Week #2 in Daniel

This Sunday I have the privilege of teaching from the Old Testament book of Daniel. Last Sunday while Melissa and I were in Texas at her 20 year HS reunion, one of our elders, Chuck Taylor, taught through chapter one.
Chapter two is the text I'll be in. It's where King Nebuchadnezzar has a dream and makes an outrageous request of his smartest magicians, enchanters, sorcerers, and astrologers - "Tell me what I dreamed, for I must know what it means".
This chapter sets us up for a great character study of young Daniel and how God works through his life.

Melissa's 20 Year High School Reunion

It's hard to believe my sweetheart has been out of high school for 20 years! I still remember going to her 10 year reunion.

What a fun time we had. We got to connect with our good friends Lee & Melanie Coleman, some family members and a bunch of folks Melissa went to school with 20 years ago. You can see more pics. on either of our FB pages.

New Message Series - Daniel

This Sunday starts our next message series. We will be in the Old Testament book of Daniel. Though the book was written 600 years before the birth of Christ it contains many things for us to apply in our lives in 2011. It also speaks of events yet to happen in our future.
Familiar Bible stories like the fiery furnace, the handwriting on the wall and Daniel in the lions den are within the book but so are angels, end times prophecy, the power of prayer, and God's sovereignty to name a few.
