Church: The Best Place on Earth

April 3, 2018 laurelglenbible
Church: The Best Place on Earth Sunday morning as a child was something to be dreaded. It meant waking up relatively early on a weekend, putting on nice clothes and then being dragged off to church for the most boring part of my weekend. First, we’d endure a liturgical service full of recitation of various

Three Reasons Prayer is a Precious Gift Have you ever been in the middle of praying, and stopped to ask yourself, does God even hear what I’m saying right now? If this is you, don’t worry. You’re not alone! The author of Hebrews writes, “Now faith is the assurance of things hope for, the conviction

7 Awe-Full Weeks - Give

March 2, 2018 laurelglenbible
The Art of Giving Well I remember as a child lying on the living room floor one Spring day scouring the Sunday ads for something special. I couldn’t have been older than eight or nine, but I was excitedly searching for something to give my mom for Mother’s Day. I don’t recall if it had

Reading and Reflecting on God’s Word For Christmas, my family drove 18 hours north to Walla Walla Washington. It was a beautiful white Christmas! While there I asked an important question of my mother in law in front of my kids so they could hear what she said. I asked, “what has kept you strong

Celebrating 40 Years of LBC!

January 26, 2018 laurelglenbible
I love the story of Israel. At its essence, God takes a man from obscurity and promises to bless every nation of the earth through him. Looking back, it’s easy to see how God did that by reading through the books of the Bible. It probably wasn’t always so easy for Israel to see God’s

When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going

January 21, 2018 laurelglenbible
The story of the Israelites is the most amazing history we have of a people group. God chose Abraham out of all people and made his offspring into a nation. Everything that happens afterward is a struggle. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph – they all struggled and suffered failures. Moses brings the people out of Egypt

5 Phone Apps to help your daily walk! Cell phones are really amazing devices. It’s almost surreal to think that in your average person’s pocket is a mobile computer over a thousand times more powerful than that which first sent man to the moon. And what do we do with that tiny super-computer? Well, we

Living A Life Of Wonder

The Rapture and the Second Coming

December 20, 2017 laurelglenbible
Recently, Pastor Eric taught on one of the more debated passages in Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, and it is in this section that Paul addresses the fate of Christians who have already died (1 Thess 4:13). In doing so, Paul gives the Thessalonians hope that those who are dead in Christ will be raised first,

Did God Really Need to Become Man?

December 6, 2017 laurelglenbible
It is fascinating that almost every religion in the world believes something about Jesus. Jesus had such an undeniable effect on the world that He is rarely questioned as a real historical figure. Consequently, almost every religion, and most people for that matter, believe something about Jesus. With that said, Christianity is different from every

Crack! Did you hear it? That was the sound of the starting pistol. Cue the mad dash! Don’t just stand there, run!

The Christmas season is upon us! It’s like a switch that gets flipped right after we’ve cleared the Thanksgiving table. The gift-giving season. This time of year, we can all get bombarded with gift-giving, but what if we gave the gift of our time or resources to advance the gospel? Isn’t that the greatest gift

Being Thankful

November 24, 2017 Megan Tabangcora
Does your family take part in the tradition of sitting around the Thanksgiving table and taking turns saying what we’re thankful for before you eat? It is easy to rattle off things we know we should be thankful for to make a good appearance and satisfy the social requirement to say something. The problem is

Sexual Immorality

November 19, 2017 laurelglenbible
Are we free to disregard Bibical prohibitions on sexual immorality? In the 1960s Bob Dylan sang that famous line, “The times, they are a-changin’.” Indeed it was a time of many changes as a new generation began to push back against many of the social mores, conservative values, and question the authority of various instititutions.

Picture a typical Sunday morning attending Laurelglen Bible Church. You enter the sanctuary to the smiles and handshakes of friends and find a seat in one of the pews for worship.

Hello church family, pastor Andy here. October 31st is a day to celebrate something much more significant than Halloween.

Perspicuity

I grew up with sensitive eyes. Bright lights used to be so painful to me at times. For example, during a car ride I’d have to hold my eyes shut as hard as I could while they watered uncontrollably until I was back indoors. As you can imagine, the optometrist was one of my least

Controversy in Scripture

Have you ever been reading your Bible and come across a bracketed section that says, “Some of the earliest manuscripts do not include…”? Some of you have probably seen this but glossed over it, kept reading, and never gave it a second thought. But for some, this bracketed section causes you to wonder deeply why

God vs. evil

October 4, 2017 laurelglenbible
When evil strikes fear in to the hearts of people, Christians play a vital role in how far that evil progresses. Evil can scare us, emotionally paralyze us, and sometimes even depress us. So many questions run through our minds when evil strikes, like it did in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017. Questions inevitably

How is the Bible inspired by God?

I loved the movie The Matrix as a teenager. Not only was it a sci-fi movie with lots of cool kung fu moves and slow-motion fight scenes, but it spoke to the escapist fantasies of a generation. If you haven’t seen the movie, the premise is that the main character finds out that his unsatisfying,
