Irene Gilliland was often the first to arrive on any given Sunday morning. As has long been my routine, I would arrive long before others to prepare my heart for the ministry of the day and the preaching to be shared. Not long afterwards, Irene would arrive, too. She would usually take a broom andRead More

Recently, I shared some lessons that Kay and I have learned regarding our daily quiet time, a daily time for Bible reading, reflecting and praying. If you’re hoping to kick start a daily time with God or deepen it, then I encourage you to consider the following thoughts. Choose to personally draw near to God.Read More

In an ocean, a swell is a series of waves that are not generated by immediate local winds, but instead by distant weather systems, where wind blows for a duration of time over a portion of water. A swell is mostly unaffected by local winds. I am sensing a spiritual swell, the beginning of aRead More

Cultural dynamics in the U.S. have been studied and communicated in terms of generations—The Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, and the generations labeled X (Baby Busters), Y (Millennials) and Z. Some argue that culture is now changing so rapidly, that studying generationally will no longer be effective. In the midst of so many changes, one thingRead More

Kay convinced me. I finally agreed to an annual physical exam with our internist. I had been holding out, arguing, “I’ve always been healthy, Love.” I knew deep down that she was right; how would I know if I were genuinely healthy without an exam? Having now gone through a couple of annual exams, IRead More

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. (Ecclesiastes 11:4 NLT) Solomon’s words about the uncertainties of life were written about 2,800 years ago. Uncertainties were as true in ancient times as they are today. How do we make decisions in the midst of uncertainties? The BibleRead More

Kay has always been the baker in our home. To be more complete, Kay has been the meal planner, fantastic cook and baker. The kitchen is her domain, which makes me a happy man. There are times that I might try my hand at something in the kitchen, but I make colossal messes and useRead More

What’s the big deal? Does it really matter that Disney released Beauty and the Beast with a gay character? Or does it really matter that the movie, The Shack, depicts God in a new way to “a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant?” What’s the big deal? Disney director, Bill Condon, described theRead More

To live life with great significance, we must rid ourselves of the notion of a sacred and secular divide. There are 168 hours in a week. Perhaps 40 of the hours will be spent at work. 56 hours might be spent sleeping– much needed for most. And 3 hours will be spent on Sunday morningsRead More

Your smile and genuine welcome make a difference to people. Kay and I have hosted hundreds of people in our home throughout our years at MeadowBrook. Many of them have been guests of The Brook, who are seeking a church. By far, the number one reason why many of them return for a second visitRead More

Moses Andruga wears many hats. He is a husband, father, pastor, church planter, farmer, trainer and orphan caregiver. He is very active and effective in each area of ministry, surprisingly so. What is astounding is that Moses is a sojourner, living with his family and several orphans in a tent in a foreign land. IRead More

Let’s finish 2016 strong. MeadowBrook has two ways in the month of December to enable us to finish strong as a church. One is to celebrate Advent and the other is to celebrate in obedience through our second Harvest Offering. Advent simply means “coming” or “arrival.” It is a season that begins November 27 andRead More

A few months ago, you made history. You gave the largest single Sunday offering ever in the life of our church. To the glory of God and the encouragement of many saints locally and globally, you gave $1.5 million as a foundational offering to build a new worship and education center debt free. As notedRead More

Have we grown complacent? The Christian life is one of surrender. We proclaim a life given totally to the lordship of Jesus Christ. Like the Apostle Paul, we testify that we are bondservants of Jesus; he is our master. As we pray, we bow our heads in honor and bend our knees in submission toRead More

You are making a difference! The Christian culture can be so confusing at times. Churches may be tempted to promote themselves and their programs, sounding somewhat like a noisy commercial trying to capture someone’s attention as they walk to the kitchen for a late night snack. They may be tempted to tout themselves like kidsRead More

I continue to rejoice and praise the Lord for the $1.5 million Harvest Offering that was recently received. The offering is part of our plan to build a worship center and education space without debt. Many people continue to give regularly for this effort. In the future, we will walk into a beautiful facility thatRead More

College and High School graduations give us opportunity to challenge young people about their present and future life. But transitions are not just a reality for young graduates nor are transitions only tough for young people. We all face various transitions that are genuinely challenging. Yet, difficult steps can afford us great heights and evenRead More

Imagine, this time next year, walking in some of the most biblically significant places of the world. Imagine walking and exploring the land where Jesus ministered; places like the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus and the disciples sailed, the Mount of the Beatitudes, where Jesus preached his Sermon on the Mount, the Jordan River, whereRead More

Healthy marriages make a healthy church. In fact, the essential bedrock of society is marriage—as goes the family, so goes the country. Honoring marriage is part of the church’s mandate from the Lord. Let marriage be held in honor among all… (Hebrews 13:4a). Sunday, March 6, MeadowBrook is focusing on honoring marriage. The morning servicesRead More
