Hope Participates in Memorial Re-Dedication!

TODAY, the Reverend Frank T. Eppley of the Emmanuel Mission Church in Kane and our own Pastor Tom, assisted with prayer in the Re-Dedication of a Memorial to World War I Veterans. The occasion was held in East Smethport. Rev. Eppley is the Chaplain of the Smethport, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).



 The Honor Guard was assisted in their presentation of arms, by our own Darion Gregory. The event marked wonderful improvements made and easy access to the memorial, which is located on U.S. Route 6 in East Smethport, PA. Let us never forget the sacrifices made by those who gave their lives in the cause of liberty.

Selling Baby Parts!

Murderous Ghouls!

Knowing that the overly liberal Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) will fund unborn child murder, please carefully consider this reading from our denomination's founder on the topic of abortion.
 This issue has become extremely contested since recent news that Planned Parenthood has not only provided such murderous service, but also ghoulishly sells embryo body parts to the highest bidder. We therefore strongly recommend that you read the article and then call or write to protest to your political representative.

Transitional Times...?

THE WORLD often subjects us to evil days, and sometimes it's difficult to celebrate. When we get the chance, however, we need do revelry for the right reasons. Check out Pastor Tom's latest article by clicking on...

Evil Enough?

WE FIND that Christians are caught in a decision time.... a kairos time! No,  it's not about whether to accept Jesus Christ as Savior, for Christians indeed have already placed their hopes and future in God's providence through Christ. But as a leader of the church, I give voice as a member and leader of the Body of Christ that is known as the wider church.
 As many have noted recently, the issue of Islamic extremism has garnered a large share of the news, and has now eaten up several precious golf outing days for our US leader. What are we then, in the world governed by both Church and State, to do concerning the sinful human tragedy that now unfolds before our eyes. The scriptures speak of such decision times. To consider my position on this matter, please go to...


 If the dialog you find upsets in the reading, so be it. But please know that as Lutherans following in the footsteps of Martin Luther and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, I believe it is far past time for overt action.

Dear Sir;
I respectfully bring to your attention the plight of Christians, some noted as Coptic by tradition, who are caught in the geographic theater of strife caused by ISIS/ISIL and other Islamic extremists. As an American citizen and a participant within the Christian church, I recall that this nation has demonstrated a proud and worthy history of coming to the aid of those unjustly persecuted.
 Therefore, I ask that you take immediate legislative action within our elected government to rescue such victims. Provide persons persecuted, whether Christian or Muslim, with necessary military relief, arms and munitions to defend their existence.
With regards…
                                                                                      Blessings.. Pastor Tom
