Our Upward Sports League is an outreach ministry in which our primary goal is to share the gospel with families in our local community. The families that have registered with us this year are not only from Fuquay-Varina, but nine other cities as well. As of today, there are 320 young people registered to play in our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading League. Think about this. That’s well over the number of people we typically have on a Sunday morning service....Keep Reading

Why Pray?

Jesus made it clear that He expects Christians to pray. Three times in three consecutive verses in Matthew 5, Jesus said, “When you pray…” Notice that He didn’t say “if you pray.” God included much about prayer in the Bible. We are told to pray without ceasing1, pray for one another2, pray for the sick3, pray night and day4, that prayer works5, that Jesus Himself prayed6, and much more....Keep Reading

“You of little faith”

Posted onSeptember 19, 2018 | 0 comments

Change, the unknown, sickness, regret, hardships, disasters, and the future all can bring about fear. What are the storms in your life today? When calamity seems to be rapidly approaching us, or even surrounding us, we quickly and eagerly drop to our knees in prayer. We helplessly seek God’s rescue, and rightly so. God expects His children to be confident in Him so much that we become the reliable ones amidst any crisis....Keep Reading

Aggravatingly Inconvenient

Some good things are just untimely. It’s like getting a phone call when you’re checking out at the store, or getting a text while you’re at the dinner table. Or have you ever been in a hurry, but someone keeps dragging out a conversation....Keep Reading

Lesson Learned

One day Leslie noticed I was stressing out from responsibilities at home and work, so she graciously gave me a free pass and said, "I have everything covered here. Why don't you go somewhere by yourself, take your Bible and just take a break?" She was so wise. I needed that. I went to Bass Lake, sat down on the dock and began reading 1 Timothy. ...Keep Reading

“The Passing of the SWORD”

This is a special day. Today I pass the baton, the torch of the pastoral care of the loving people of Wake Chapel Christian Church to Isaac Mooneyham. But I decided rather to pass a sword to him because the Word of God is the center of this church and his ministry. ...Keep Reading

Thank God for Times of Refreshing

The Apostle Paul was not reluctant to mention the names of those who posed a threat to the furtherance of the gospel and the health of the church and also the names of those whose lives had been a blessing to others....Keep Reading

An “X” on the Sidewalk

Posted onJune 19, 2018 | by: Dan Peters | 0 comments

When my dad, a country preacher, took a church in the city, he was in the habit of helping needy people. They began knocking on our door almost every day. He gave them clothes, food and money. Their stories of need were convincing. Often, they would eat at our table and listen to our devotions. They even put an X on the sidewalk to let other “men of the road” know where to get a handout. My dad was such a “soft touch” that we often were pretty tight financially....Keep Reading
