Pastor's Blog

Thanks for visiting our website.  It’s nice to meet you, even though it’s only electronically.  We’d love to meet you in person any Sunday morning at 10:00 when we gather for worship.

We’re a small church with a big heart, and there is certainly room for you here.  For many years our church’s slogan has been “A Church That Cares for Persons.”  We want it to be so much more than just a slogan.  Any friend of Jesus is a friend of ours, so we offer you a most cordial welcome in His name.  If we can be of spiritual help to you please feel free to contact us at 508-339-7047 or, better yet, join with us on Sunday at 10:00 A.M.  You may enter our church as a stranger, but we intend that you will leave it as a friend.

Many blessings to you through our Best Friend!

Yours in Him,

(Rev.) Peter A. Brown

Dear Mothers and Others,

Inspired by an item that made the rounds a while ago on the Internet (and by a good dose of my own juvenile sense of humor!), here are the top ten imaginary sayings of mothers in the Bible to their children:

10. Cain, get off your brother!  If you keep that up, you’re going to kill him someday!

 9. No, Noah, you can’t keep them.  I’ve told you before—don’t bring home any more strays!

 8. For goodness’ sake, Joseph!  Why do you have to wear that jacket in the middle of the summer?

 7. Moses, you’re giving your mother a headache!  I’m going to take two tablets and lie down for a while.

 6. Joshua, you’re playing the trumpet loud enough to rattle the walls!

 5. Samson, you look like a hippie.  Get a haircut, for heaven’s sake!

 4. David, if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times—that sling is an outdoor toy!  Go practice your harp.  We pay good money for those lessons.

 3. What are you, Solomon some kind of wise guy?

 2. Zacchaeus, if you don’t drink your goat’s milk, you’ll stunt your growth!

       And the number one saying of a biblical mother is:

 1. Jesus, stop your woodworking and come in for supper.  I think you’d spend your whole life on that wood, if your father asked you to!

All joking aside, the sacrifice that a mother makes for her children is at least a faint reflection of the Great Sacrifice of Calvary.  As Jesus gave Himself in love for us, so every mother worth the name gives herself in love for her family.  If you’re a mother who’s wondering, “Is all this really worth it?” then take it from Paul: “And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.” (I Corinthians 13:13)

Happy Mother’s Day!
