Holy Week 101

Posted on April 15, 2014 at 2:36 pm

by Pastor Dawn Marie Turner, First Christian Church, Bowling Green, and New Harmony Christian Church   Holy Week is this week.  Phrases like Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter abound in the speech of the churched.

    By Connie Hanson Malloy   I had turned five years old on Aug. 6, 1953 and started first grade at Vannoy school a few weeks later.

  • Will God end winter?

    Posted on April 8, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    By Pastor Mike Gillen, Bowling Green First, Eolia, and Oak Grove UMC   This winter has been an endless marathon of blustery, miserable, snowy, cold.

  • Amy Patterson – “My Thoughts”

    Posted on April 8, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    Life is too short to be unhappy. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop us from being chronic complainers and nay-sayers, you know, like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh.

In retrospect, the entire argument was rather silly. What truly matters is meaning what you pray and having faith

    Submitted by Joe Siefkas, Student Pastor of Bowling Green First Presbyterian   One hundred and twenty-five years ago, the architect and builders of Bowling Green First Presbyterian Church laid out the foundation of the new sanctuary just northwest of the town square. These men, no doubt supported and nurtured by strong and capable wives and families, used the tools and technologies of their time to align the sanctuary with the

  • Minister’s Message – “A Sacrifice Should Cost Something”

    Posted on March 18, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    Many times in our lives we will encounter situations in which we feel like life is spinning out of control, and that we have lost our handle on things. What we need to learn is that we have to let go, or sacrifice, our control on life and acknowledge God’s power and provision – which is the essence of sacrifice – in order to survive and thrive in the midst
