Snoopy’s Adventure for Today


Some of you know my long-time buddy, Snoopy. We think he is part Chihuahua, part Corgi, if anyone cares. He has been hanging around with us for about 15 years. When we got him from the rescue group, they said that he was about three years old. That makes him “not exactly a spring chicken.”…

Sunday School 2.0

While I miss teaching Sunday School, I deeply appreciate the opportunity to listen in and participate with Pastor Hull’s adult Sunday school/Bible class.
