Why Do We Preach Verse-By-Verse Through the Bible? And If It Is Such a Great Idea, Why Don’t We Do It 100% of the Time?
This is a great question. If you have attended Good News Church for a while (say, six months or more) you will have noticed that we teach through books of the Bible, but not exclusively. For instance, in the past three years we’ve taught through the Gospel of Mark, 1 & 2 Timothy, and the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes. However, during those same three years, we also did series on the topics of marriage, church, work, and handling conflict.

I am pleased to announce the release of my first book, “Working Our Way through Life.” This book is based on the teachings that I did at church back at the beginning of 2019. It is a short devotional (only 50 pages; what an easy read!) covering twenty passages of Scripture related to the topic of work. It is designed to be read for one or two minutes a day over the course of 20 days, but can easily be read in one sitting as well.

Every six months (give or take) this question is brought up to me, “Why don’t we write our own songs?”. Sometimes it’s more of a statement of fact, rather than a question. “You know, you should write your own songs. How great would that be?” Most of the time I just smile and nod, and try to change the subject to something else. However as I was thinking about this question recently, I figured it might be good to have some document to refer back to about why we aren’t doing this.

There is something within us that longs for the extraordinary. Many of us don’t want to live “normal” lives, but want to accomplish true greatness. Some people are drawn to adventure and difficulty.

It seems to me that lately I've heard a lot of gobbledygook from Christians about the topic of "guilt and shame" and I wanted to write an article to help us makes sense of these things.
The Newest Elder on the Board of Good News Church: Ron Lynch
On Saturday, March 9, the elders nominated Ron Lynch to be an elder serving on the governing board of Good News Church. We announced the nomination the following Wednesday (March 13) in the church newsletter, on Facebook, and the church website. In that announcement, we said that as long as we saw no disqualifying factors present in his life (and you were asked to let us know if you were aware of anything) we would bring him on sometime in April.
