The Courage To Try

Neal Pollard About nine months ago, a man walked into our building a day after being immersed into Christ.

He … Continue reading The Courage To Try

Teachers’ Aids

Neal Pollard Several of our classes have assistants to the Bible class teacher.  She (or perhaps in select cases “he”) serves in a support role, helping students do handwork, find Bible verses, or occasionally keep order.  These are vital roles, and often a teacher’s aid later actually becomes a teacher.  Teachers’ aids are part of … Continue reading Teachers’ Aids

The Benefits Of Finding Ourselves In Scripture

Neal Pollard Given his job, the Ethiopian of Acts 8 was one of that country's most important people. Yet, he was more than important.

Why We Need The Word

Neal Pollard Many know that Psalm 119 is the greatest, inspired tribute to the Word of God known to man. 176 verses, eight verses under the heading of every Hebrew letter, grace these pages of our Bibles.

THE VALUE OF REMEMBERING

Neal Pollard I am not sure what the connection is, but some people tie a string around their finger to remember an important date or appointment.  Some people just write on their hand.  Others preserve it electronically. What do we do to keep from forgetting what is important to us spiritually?  Peter writes in 2 … Continue reading THE VALUE OF REMEMBERING

FOURTEEN SUGGESTIONS FOR BUILDING YOUR DEVOTIONAL LIFE

Neal Pollard Maybe you have resolved repeatedly to become a better, more faithful Bible student, person of prayer, or simply one who truly desires to build a closer relationship with God.

What It Takes To Grow The Church In Our Culture

Neal Pollard It was such a treat to be among the hearty, faithful Christian men of central Wyoming and the Bighorn Basin. By Bible-belt comparison, they come from small congregations. But their passion and desire to grow the church is humongous. Near the end of their men’s retreat, they divided into groups to discuss the … Continue reading What It Takes To Grow The Church In Our Culture
