From Pastor Camp — 11/7

Christians have long known that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive. In the last few years, studies have begun to show the benefits of generosity to our physical and mental well being. Studies now show that generosity gives us a greater sense of purpose, reduces stress, helps our physical health, […]

Thank you for such a wonderful and awesome Installation Sunday. I was overwhelmed by the exceptionally strong show of support on Sunday afternoon.

Last Sunday we welcomed nine new members into the Memorial church family. In every new member class that I teach, I tell them about five membership responsibilities. But I believe that it is important that every member of the church be reminded of these obligations. So, here they are and I hope and pray that […]

In Mark’s Gospel account of the resurrection of Jesus, the women flee in fear after encountering the empty tomb. All of us understand and know the power of fear. I can’t tell you that all our fears that we may have about the future of our families, personal lives, and the world are irrational. Wars, […]

Easter gives us three very special gifts: 1) a resurrection, 2)a mission, and 3) a promise. First of all, Easter gives us a resurrection. Easter gives us new life, a new vitality, and a new sense of victory over sin, over despair, over defeat, and even over death. Christ conquered death, and through Him – […]

A young man was working his way among the people in the gate area of an airport. As the people waited for the boarding announcement to be made, he was handing out copies of that little booklet, The Four Spiritual Laws, doing a faithful work of evangelism.

I enjoy the game of golf. Over the last 15-20 years I have been blessed to travel to Augusta, Georgia 6 times and attend practice rounds of the Masters. This year’s tournament will take place next week (April 6-9). Golf’s greatest champions have many unique strengths and qualities which set them apart from their peers. […]
