    We are excited to have the Outdoor Channel’s Chuck McAlister coming to Long Ridge this Saturday. Chuck was the longtime host of AdventureBound Outdoors, a program that gave him the opportunity to hunt and fish across the country and beyond.
    That program pioneered the magazine-style format for outdoor programs and won four national awards. It won the Fan Favorite Award twice on the Outdoor Channel.

  • Bless me, Father, for I have sinned

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a sign board out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.
    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet or it was where they kept the devil.
    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?
    When I was seven or so, I got to go behind the wooden doors and confess my sins, which mostly consisted of being mean to my sister and brothers and disobeying my parents.

  • Messages from the pulpit: Nov. 12, 2014

    Monterey Baptist
    It was a privilege to recognize the veterans in our congregation today.  As the military medley played, the men stood while their branch’s song was being played.  
    Our deepest gratitude to Jim Bob Cook (Air Force), Joe Peters (Army), Gary Derringer (Army), Foster Smith (Army) and Melvin Miller (Army). We should never forget the sacrifice the men and women (past and present) have made so we could worship freely. May God bless you.   

  • Aint it The Truth: Tenacious little turtle thought he could fly

    Deep within a forest, a little turtle began to climb a tree. After hours of effort, he reached the top, jumped into the air waving his front legs, and crashed to the ground.
    After recovering, he slowly climbed the tree again, jumped, and fell to the ground.
    The turtle tried time and again while a couple of birds sat on a branch and watched him.
    Finally, the female bird turned to her mate and said: “Dear, don’t you think it’s time we tell him he’s adopted?”

  • Even with our flaws, God shows us grace

    If you’ve been in church for any length of time, depending on the church you may have heard sermons about Bible heroes: strong and mighty Samson, brave David the shepherd boy who fought the giant Goliath and killed him with his slingshot and a stone.

    There’s Daniel in the lion’s den, the three Hebrew teens in the fiery furnace, Moses who led the Israelites out of Egypt.

  • Elderly grandmother told the whole truth

    BY ROGER ALFORD

    Perhaps you’ve heard the story about the small-town prosecutor who called an elderly grandmother as his first witness in a trial. She put her hand on a Bible and was prompted to swear that she would tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
