November Newsletter

When I think of the month of November two things come immediately to mind: deer hunting and Thanksgiving.  The Pennsylvania whitetail season is in full swing in the month of November, as the archery season winds down, with the rut coming to its zenith, it is quickly followed by the rifle season. For many of us, these November days are spent in a tree stand from sunrise to sunset, which I call “dark to dark” hunting. The idea is that we climb into a tree when it’s dark and we don’t get down from the tree until its dark or until the Lord blesses us with a harvest.

PASTOR TOM’S PERSPECTIVE
It’s very obvious that we live in a very broken world today. Every time we turn on the news, we see people being kidnapped and killed, we see wars tearing apart countries and dividing nations around the world, and we regularly see the persecution and prosecution of Christians both in our country, and around the world. Where did all this ugliness come from? Doesn’t God care about all of these problems? Why doesn’t He stop the pain and hurt?
